Spanish inspired, rustic degustation! Yes please!
Last weekend we had the pleasure of eating at Javier’s Table, a chef’s table/degustation menu, where head chef and co-owner, Javier Codina, prepares signature courses from the menu as well as dishes created from fresh seasonal produce. It. Was. Amazeballs.
This is just one of the many waves of courses we were served and devoured; it’s Swordfish served with green asparagus and capsicum coulis. Some of the other courses included;
- freshly made hare pies with sweet potato mash and raspberry relish; zucchini flowers with goat cheese and golden raisin vinaigrette
- baked angel hair pasta with scallops, clams, prawns and aioli
- Chicken Croquettes with romesco sauce
- Manolete Chorizo Sausage with Spanish Peppers
Our favourite is the Hare pie… it is divine. It’s not on the regular menu and if you get chances to eat at Moda, we highly recommend you ask if they’re available. Dessert was also amazeballs with fresh raspberry sorbet, creme caramel with the most moist and perfect Hazel nut cake.
Moda’s wine list is also extensive. They import some of the best Spanish and French wines. (I counted 11 Tempranillo’s on the menu alone!) The venue’s nestled away from busy Edward st and is a perfect mix of alfresco and elegance. They also have a full function room perfect for wedding or special occasions.
Price Range: $$$/$$$ ($85 pp Javier’s Table // $28 – $49 Mains)
