Known for bringing iconic late night music to the forefront of Melbourne's music scene over the last few years, the focus at Lounge Kitchen has recently shifted.
The team has turned their attention to the dining experience, redesigning the menu, combining fusion food and borderless dining for an experience to be shared.
A great believer that food is a social occasion and should be experienced in the company of others, Lounge Kitchen’s revamped menu invites diners to order a range of small plates and large to share between family and friends.
The menu was developed pulling inspiration from Spanish Style Tapas and infusing Asian inspired flavours, bringing together a borderless menu to suit the adventurous diner and providing plates for everyone to enjoy. We thoroughly enjoyed the food we shared at Lounge Kitchen which embodies the creative culinary vision in the kitchen.
The menu is wonderfully global perfect for sharing amongst friends and family. Our favourite dishes included the Thai sticky beef short ribs. The braised beef short ribs were tender and delicious, with caramel undertones. Paired with an earthy Asian braising sauce, the ribs fell away at the weight of our spoons whilst still retaining their integrity.
Another highlight was the Zucchini and halloumi fritters which are served with a luxurious mint and goats cheese pea puree. Each fritter boasted a crunchy golden brown exterior while being beautifully succulent and sweet inside.
Moving away from traditional pub food and presenting a menu highlighting modern flavours that reflect a very Melbourne border-less cuisine, the new Lounge Kitchen is a winner.
