Friday Nights at the Cafe - Table for Ten

$ 690.   

Beer and Wine available.  No BYO.

The Friday Feast is a set menu specifically chosen by Fi Ziff and her husband Parsa Shayesteh for a unique sensory experience with the use of wonderful spices and herbs which are absent from Western food.  The dishes are extremely healthy and very tasty.  The Feast concept is perfect for Middle Eastern and African cuisine because in these parts of the world family and friends gather around to share food as a celebration.

The Feast is celebrated at the Café on Friday Nights between 6.30-9.30pm (see menu below). Pre-paid Bookings only, to be made online via this website. The Feast is served from 7pm sharp.  Guests can arrive from 6.30pm to enjoy drinks by the Park.  We are fully licensed.  No BYO.

Lentils slowly sauteed in curried coconut milk and yellow mustard seeks, served with prawns, coriander, fresh tomato and lemon.

Ethiopian Chicken

Free-range chicken legs prepared by Stewart at Culcairn Butchery, rubbed in Ethiopia's favourite spice mix - Berbere which features 16 different spices, fried off quickly to crisp up the skin, then slowly baked.  Served on a bed of sweet and sour kale.


Course 4


African Kumera & Cauliflower Curry


featuring chickpeas, ginger, spices served on bed of quinoa


Course 5


Ghormeh Sabzi - Iranian Lamb slow cooked in rich herbs

Parsa has been cooking this for our family for 8 years now and it is quite simply one of the yummiest dishes he makes and is featured for the first time at the Feast. It is very healthy too.  A house-made lamb broth is the base for this dish, in which chunky lamb shoulder pieces are slowly cooked, to which is then added a rich mixture of herbs (coriander, parsley, fenugreek, chives) and red kidney beans.  Served with long white rice.

Course 6

Egyptian Bread Pudding

To sweeten your tastebuds we will treat you to a baked pudding of pastry, cinnamon infused milk, butter, cream, hazelnuts, raisins, almonds and served

with a house-made Vanilla Ice cream + butterscotch sauce (the sauce is an Aussie addition which we could not resist)


plus a selection of beers + wine (includ. Sparkling)
