30 Mar Gypsey & Musquito, Richmond
Gypsey & Musquito is named after two bushrangers from Tasmania. Their menu consists of items that utilise local and native produce, making for a food that is very interesting and different from the norm. The last page of the menu described the origin and flavours of many of the native ingredients, which was a nice touch, and probably saves the staff from explaining things so many times. I went with the camel sausage cassoulet with house-made beans, pepperberry roasted eggplant and organic sourdough toast, but swapped out the camel for wallaby sausage.
The dish was tasty and I found the wallaby sausage to have a light and delicate flavour; it wasn’t gamey at all. The presentation of the roasted eggplant was different from what I expected, but it worked well with the beans, tomatoes and sausage.
I don’t know of many places that serve native foods, so this is certainly one to keep in mind!
