There's something a little bit unnerving at the Art Gallery of New South Wales this summer, with ghouls, goblins and shapeshifters hidden around every corner of the blockbuster Japan supernatural exhibition. Three centuries of fantasy and folklore in Japanese art are explored throughout the exhibition, in more than 180 pieces from artists such as Katsushika Hokusai and Takashi Murakami.

To celebrate, Chiswick at the Gallery's head chef Tim Brindley is unlocking his supernatural ability with food to create a special dining experience. For $82, you can enjoy a two-course meal of Japanese-inspired dishes, an Asahi beer or glass of wine and entry into Japan supernatural.

Tuck into a bento box, which includes white miso ocean trout skewers with yuzu sesame; fried pork and ginger gyoza; and a crunchy chicken katsu sando with white cabbage and bulldog sauce. Or, pick the seared snapper with spring vegetables or the eggplant with cashew chipotle cream and toasted sunflower seeds.

Sides-wise, you can opt for a green salad, steamed broccolini or chips for an additional $12. For dessert, you can choose from either yuzu cheesecake or coconut sorbet.

For those after a strong tipple with their food, try one of the specially created Japanese-inspired cocktails on offer, and a sip of a traditional saké, yuzushu citrus liqueur, or umeshu, made from ume fruits. Then, when you're close to bursting, wander through the gallery and go check out the landmark exhibition, including these five must-see artworks.

The dining package is available at Chiswick at the Gallery throughout the duration of the Japan supernatural exhibition. It's available for lunch daily and for dinner on Wednesday nights until Sunday, March 8. The price also includes entry into the exhibition. To make a reservation, head to the restaurant's website.
