A vegan takeover of Newtown's Americana-inspired bar.
For three animal-friendly weeks, The Midnight Special, Newtown's Americana-inspired bar, is handing its culinary reins to Alfie's Kitchen, experts in creative vegan fare. It's the third kitchen takeover in recent months for TMS, following a barbecue pop-up with Enmore's Bovine and Swine and a retro throwback with Petersham's Daisy's Milkbar.
Get stuck into Smashing Pumpkin ($10), which are sesame crackers filled with smashed pumpkin dip and served with miso caramel sauce, as well as vegan tacos, vegan burgers and sticky eggplant skewers. For snacks, it's crackles galore. Just $5 will buy you puffed tapioca crackles with house-made pickles or eggplant relish.
If you're up for a feast, drop by on a Sunday for Alfie's Midnight Special Banquet. You'll be tucking into a bunch of fried delights, including sweet-and-sour bread, eggplant-and-chilli and garlic dumplings.
Meanwhile, The Midnight Special's drinks team has come up with some vegan cocktails to match, including Little Red Corvette (lemon myrtle infused gin, raspberry compote, spiced agave) and Figeroni Fig (ginger-infused rye whiskey, Campari, Amaro Averna, orange twist).
Alfie's Midnight Special is happening from 5.30pm till late, Wednesday to Sunday, June 9 to 30.
