A.Baker, New Acton – a first look at dinner

Standard

A. Baker has an enviable setting in the historic old Acton Hotel buildings, and opening onto established garden courtyards at both front and back.

 

Supporting local producers and even growing some produce themselves…

… A. Baker strives for excellence in it’s food and wine menus

….and this is reflected in the pride, confidence and welcome if the service staff.

 

Especially delicious are the pork belly, prune and tarragon canapés….

….but the south coast oysters with cucumber and citrus…

 

And the charred cauliflower with sesame and ponzu are also good.

 

It’s a good idea to order as a group and share a range of share plates and dishes.

This gives great variety in styles, flavours and textures.

Good choices include….

Starters…

…shared cured meats with A. Baker bread and olive oil ($25 for three)….

…..Shaw River buffalo mozzarella, black garlic, smoked walnuts and quinoa…

…….Braised Octopus, skordalia, baked panchetta, blood orange and almond…

Mains

Baked local mushrooms, Dutch cream gnocchi, kale, local primo sale…

Charred lamb neck, Harissa, bean, radish and sumac salad, smoked whipped ricotta…

And a lovely dessert is the Black sesame bavarois, strawberries, pink peppercorn meringue and sorrel.

 

A good choice for a special dinner, brunch or a coffee.
