Amid tourists stopping traffic to take photos of the perfectly-framed cityscape below, the top of Anglesea St is near-permanently populated with revellers. Mr Toms has been attracting them since it opened its doors last November with casual shared plates and a fun, easy-going ethos.
Head chef Tom Williamson, formerly of United Kitchen and The Oyster Inn, is a big tapas fan, his most memorable experience occurring in a small restaurant in the old town of Palma, where all the classics were done to perfection. His tapas trail menu, however, focuses on a contemporary New Zealand style of cuisine, privileging seasonal local produce in dishes that are designed for sharing.
Mr Toms’ Estrella Damm Tapas Trail menu:
- Saffron arancini, pistachio, Romesco sauce
- Prosciutto, roast pear, burrata, hazelnut dressing
- Market fish ceviche
Enjoy all three dishes with two glasses of Estrella Damm for just $40.
