Feast of Merit is both a restaurant and a not-for-profit organisation, with 100 per cent of the proceeds helping people who live in poverty. Head Chef Jarryd Goundrey dishes out colourful and delicious Middle Eastern meals in this humbling and relaxed venue. Reminiscent of a little house, the restaurant has several different rooms plus a large communal table in the middle.
Eat up and be merry, knowing that your money is going towards a worthy cause. Cherry Tree organic slow-cooked lamb with harissa, mint, cucumber, honey and herb salt is not to be missed. Served on the bone, the delicious lamb has been marinated in aromatic herbs and spices; the potent harissa is the perfect foil for the meltingly moist meat. Spiced Milawa free-range chicken is a highlight of the menu. The smoked chicken pieces are enhanced with a saffron chilli dressing.
PSST! Feast of Merit has a rooftop bar that is ideal for a pre-dinner aperitif or post-lunch cocktail.
