Executive Chef Tony Twitchett’s passion for food started at an early age, and he has since spent time working at renowned restaurants such as EZARD, Circa and, more recently, Barkers Wine Bar & Bistro in Hawthorn. Diners at Taxi Kitchen enjoy contemporary fare surrounded by expansive views of Melbourne and the Yarra River. The bright dining room is perfect for a meal with friends.
Great thought and care has been put into the menu, which has an Asian influence. Sake-washed tuna is beautifully plated, with fresh slices of tuna perched on a fragrant soybean pesto. The fish is accompanied by a light daikon salad lifted by the dressing of wasabi, lime and black sesame seeds. Seafood lovers will adore the crispy-skin salmon, which has a wonderful texture. It is matched with earthy mashed kohlrabi, kimchi and black garlic dressing.
PSST! The six-course Tasting Menu for $85 per person is the best way to sample a range of Chef Twitchett’s dishes.
