The menu at this Katoomba eatery draws inspiration from a range of countries and regions: South East Asia, North American, Africa and the Mediterranean. French-born chef Misha Laurent, whose career in hospitality began at the Sheraton Hotel in Munich, has combined this eclectic range of cuisines to create a compact menu of "street food".

The menu starts with tofu fries with sambal, moves on to pulled lamb-stuffed tacos, Cuban sandwiches and NYC-style cheese burgers. It also has heartier dishes such as the nasi goreng ($16), Jamaican jerk chicken ($16) and a New Caledonian Ceviche ($18) with green papaya, ginger, coconut milk and coriander.

While the restaurant doesn't serve alcohol, it's BYO — so remember to grab a bottle of your favourite drop before heading in (it's well-deserved after all that antique shopping and hiking).
