Under Head Chef Brendan Katich, and overseen by Executive Chef Teage Ezard, Gingerboy’s spicy menu of vibrant South-East Asian food has some all-time classics jazzed up through the duo’s creative talents.
Located in an exciting setting down a CBD laneway, Gingerboy is perfect for a romantic dinner for two or for group get-togethers. Inside, it’s like eating under the stars with a black roof full of hundreds of dimly lit lights and a striking red chandelier.
Start with mixed mushroom san choi bao or crunchy bites of salt and pepper cuttlefish with chilli salt and green pepper sambal. For something different, a spanner crab salad on endive with a Kewpie mayo and Asian herbs is fresh and delicious. Larger dishes include the whole snapper, a visually exciting dish. Standing upright, the fish comes complete with its tail and beady eyes, with juicy flesh and crisp skin in a tamarind sauce. On the side is an aromatic salad of mango, lychee and bean shoots.
PSST! Kick back with a pre- or post-dinner drink at Gingerboy Upstairs.
