Now, we all know Lucky Penny as the bright and air space coated in fresh white brick walls, warmed up with furnishings of pale wood, tanned leather and soft lighting. Vintage modernism vibes coupled with quality coffee and an all-day breakfast menu full of flavour and variety. But did you know about their exciting winter dinner concept, The Hunter's Kitchen ?
Created by Head Chef Jason Chan,The Hunter's Kitchen concept focuses on home style, sharing dishes, inspired by traditional Nordic, Scandinavian and Viking food. Yup, that's right, the ultimate winter comfort food to warm the heart.
Thinly Sliced Rare Wagyu, cauliflower, mustard, freeze dried horseradish
Cured Salmon, celriac puree, cornichons, dill, celery leaves, salmon roe, rye
Bannockburn Free Range Farmhouse Chicken, bacon, roast celery and kale chips
Slow Cooked Venison, venison sausage, confit red cabbage, spiced pear chutney
Inspired by the traditional Danish snack smørrebrød, we started our Viking feast with the Cured Salmon and Thinly Sliced Rare Wagyu, followed by the hearty Slow Cooked Venison and Bannockburn Free Range Farmhouse Chicken served on heavy cast iron pans. Oh man, the most succulent chicken smothered with smooth creamy potato studded with salty bacon bits, roast celery and crispy kale chips. Hands down, the favourite of the night.
Roast Beetroot and Rhubarb with buffalo mozzarella
Burnt Broccoli, brown rice, currants, almonds
Complementing the heavier dishes, we enjoyed a smokey Burnt Broccoli Salad with nutty brown rice, sweet earthy currants and crunchy almonds together with a Roasted Beetroot and Rhubarb Salad with soft buffalo mozzarella.
Glühwein (Mulled Wine)
Blueberry and Elderflower Crumble with vanilla ice cream
Warm saffron cake with treacle sauce and ice cream
Our eyes sparkled as the traditional Nordic inspired delights came around. We satisfied each and every sweet tooth with the Blueberry and Elderflower Crumble, and demolished the most decadent Safrron Cake with treacle sauce and ice cream. Hmmm... hot and cold, hot and cold.
Let me just say, the food and drinks at The Hunter's Kitchen is exactly what you need tot cozy up in the chilly days this season. Get lucky.
