17 May Morrison’s, Hawthorn
Operating mainly as a cafe, Morrison’s transforms into a restaurant on Friday nights, showcasing dishes from various countries within Latin America as well as a bit of Southeast Asian flair thanks to its Malaysian chef.
Start off with the Peruvian Ceviche, which has plenty of refreshing bite, or the fat cassava chips and their delicious mayo. There are plenty of stews in Latin American cuisine, which is perfect for the cooler months ahead. The Brazilian Feijoada is one with beans, chorizo, pork ribs and pork shoulder. There’s a bit of spice to it too, keeping you warm and full. The Encebollado was the highlight – an Ecuadorian fish stew, tonight using swordfish, served with chunky cassava and pickled red onions.
