Awarded one chef's hat in Good Food Guide two years running (2019 and 2020), Morks Restaurant in Kingston serves up contemporary Thai dishes in its bustling, open-plan dining room five days a week.
Diners have two choices when ordering. You can stick to the a la carte menu — which features dishes like nose-to-tail Isaan-style beef larb, shredded duck leg with silken tofu and truffle oil, Chinese eggplant pork buns and fried ice cream — or opt for the tasting menu option. The latter costs $95 per person and includes the venue's best plates, like fishball toast topped with kewpie mayo and smoked Yarra Valley caviar, and a crispy pig lo mien salad.
On the drinks side of things, Morks pours a range of punchy cocktails, beers, malt whiskies, plus predominantly Australian sparkling, white and red tipples.
