A not so secret den

Opening next month, but with the soft launch next week is den, in Kings Cross. The name may conjure images of a hidden speakeasy, but actually this 45 cover restaurant is a minimalistic, Japanese restaurant which will focus on authentic udon dishes. It’s taking its inspiration from the idea of ‘umami’ -for those not up to date on their Japanese dishes, that’s the traditional flavours that people associate with familiar tastes that have made up their cuisine. It also has less calories than ramen, soba or pasta, which is handy when we seem to be drowning in a sea of mince […]

Pure Taste

This paleolithic dining experience promises to appeal to your inner caveman. Intrigued? Well, the concept is derived from the work of nutritional therapist Holly Redman who also happens to be the new venue’s head chef. Her menu focuses on food groups generally consumed during the paleolithic era when dairy products, grains, legumes, processed oils and refined sugars didn’t feature in the diet. Instead, paleolithic man (and woman) chomped on protein-rich and high-fibre options. The monthly-changing menus feature fresh, seasonal ingredients including free range fish and meat, plus an extensive collection of biodynamic wines, gluten-free beers (which we didn’t know existed […]
