This sustainability-focused tiki banquet will see you eating with your hands — and experiencing 'edible' cocktails.
Sustainable dining gets a fun, tiki-style twist, for Rice Paper Scissors' lively Good Food Month banquet menu. On Tuesday, June 22, and Tuesday, June 29, the Fitzroy restaurant is dishing up a five-course Southeast Asian feast that's focused on minimising waste. They're honing in on local, sustainably-sourced ingredients, while ditching the plates and cutlery in favour of things you can eat with your hands.
For $49, you'll tuck into a planet-friendly five-course feed, starring creations like locally-foraged mushroom banh mi, rice crackers topped with kingfish ceviche in a pomelo coconut dressing, and coconut cups with caramelised pork and Clarence River king prawns. True to form, there'll be a full menu of excellent vegan alternatives on offer, including bites as tempura eggplant steamed buns and smoked pineapple ceviche.
To match, the bar will be slinging a range of brews, wines and tiki-inspired drinks to purchase on the night — including a few 'edible' cocktails.
