Vegan Experimental Tuesdays
Collingwood's Shu is using Tuesdays to test out five new dishes — for only 25 bucks.
Johnston Street's neon-drenched Shu is no stranger to innovation, having earned a solid reputation for its envelope-pushing take on modern Sichuan fare. But now you can prepare those tastebuds for some of its most creative grub yet, which is set to be delivered as part of the restaurant's new series of weekly experimental vegan dinners.
From 6pm each Tuesday, the kitchen's offering a changing selection of innovative new dishes, showcasing seasonal produce and fun techniques that the kitchen's been playing around with.
And while you might expect such crafty eats to come with a hefty price tag, Shu's Tuesday night feasts clock in at just $25 for five dishes — almost cheap enough to rival a midweek pub parma — yet way, way more exciting.
Recent creations have included the likes of grilled okra with burnt chilli salsa and puffed rice, tempeh crackers topped with apple, avocado and green chilli mayo, and slow-cooked Asian mushrooms teamed with black sticky rice and sweet soy.
