AUSTRALIA HAS NOT HAD SUCH AN ICONIC PEOPLE-WATCHING SPOT SINCE
THE FAMOUS ‘BIRD WATCHER’S BAR’ IN 1980’S SURFERS PARADISE
FARMERS, FISHERMEN AND ARTISAN PRODUCERS
OF TASMANIA, KING ISLAND AND FLINDERS ISLAND
ARE THE HEROES OF EVERY DISH.
PURE SOUTH KITCHEN IS OPEN,
WEDNESDAY - FRIDAY FROM 12NOON AND 11AM WEEKENDS.
UPSTAIRS IS OUR AWARDED FINE DINING ROOM: ‘PURE SOUTH DINING’.
The menu is appealingly simple, the ingredients are stellar, the execution is exemplary. . . the window seats at the enormous concrete counters on Southgate’s western corner should rival the Flinders Street Station clocks as an iconic meeting place.
Sunday was a glorious day for a walk along the Yarra and South Bank. We couldn’t resist going in and having a leisurely glass of wine and a snack. The windows were wide open, the buskers at work. The people watching was sublime, framed by the open windows it was a truly a surreal live theatre. The theme a great life in Melbourne.
The menu’s built around the same top-notch King Island and Flinders Island produce, it’s just had the starch ironed out of it. For brekky, start with the chia pudding with Burlington farm berries, lemon curd and almonds, or step it up with a pillowy P.S. Brioche bun (the Nichols chicken and lemon aioli and king crab with salmon, avocado and cos lettuce are both knockouts.
Opted for casual dinning downstairs which was a wonderful spot with windows wide open overlooking the river. Food and service were great with a real focus Aussie ingredients - great option.
