Magic Mountain Saloon opened its doors mid-2014 and has never looked back. Following on from the success of Cookie, Executive Chef Karen Batson has created a modern Thai menu delivering punchy flavours.
This multi-level venue is busy from breakfast though to late dinner. The ground floor centres around an elegant marble-topped bar with a variety of seating options and cosy nooks. With upbeat music and a vibrant atmosphere, this is a perfect spot for dinner with a lively crowd.
To start, try the DIY betel leaves and make your own, with a vibrant mix of tea-smoked shredded trout, shredded coconut, smooth chunks of avocado and fruity bursts of pomelo; the sweet-and-sour dressing works a treat. If you’re after a noodle dish, the Peking duck is one to try. This jumble of fat noodles, green peppercorns, well-seasoned Chinese cabbage, slivers of egg omelette and thinly sliced duck delivers beautifully cooked meat and a subtle heat that tickles the lips.
PSST! Magic Mountain opens from 7am for breakfast. Get in early to try their heavenly roti bread, almond butter, grilled banana and condensed milk.
