A produce driven ethos at Nomad
A regular favourite of mine, it’s always time to revisit Nomad in Surry Hills. It’s not just the great local, seasonal, Mediterranean food, it’s also the passion extending to the wine shop and their own charcuterie room. It’s a great choice for a Friday night wind down with a few friends, and a good time to do the chef’s shared menu.
We’re straight in with a large slab of Nomad’s warm bread and a generous serve of split pea hummus, the epitome of comfort food. Quickly followed by platters of charcuterie combined with delicious pickles.The paper-light zucchini flowers are hidden under a huge snowy blanket of pecorino with a side of truffle honey. Lip-smacking good.
Mediterranean taste sensations
I love the fresh taste of kingfish ceviche with avocado, finger lime and a coriander cracker, sublime! The BBQ cauliflower is soft spicy goodness, pairing well with some perfectly barbecued lamb rump. It’s a very filling serve. We need a break before committing to the dessert, which is a rich crunchy take on an ice-cream slice or sandwich. It includes olive oil parfait, halva crumble, pistachio and honeycomb, nom nom. During the meal we also imbibe a few cocktails and a rocking Nick O’Leary riesling.
