275 AUSTRALIA ST, NEWTOWN
9517 4700; OSCILLATEWILDLY.COM.AU This modest,intimate restaurant that seats just 30 guests is quirky and interesting,and the snacks are just the beginning of an adventurous menu from chef Karl Firla.The wine list is in the same vein, offering a range of ‘safe’ varietals to more eclectic conversation starters that boldly stand up to the food.
There’s awed silence as an orange bisque is theatrically poured over curls of pumpkin adorning barely cooked Moreton Bay bugs. Oscillate Wildly offers exceptional precision and an enjoyable journey for the senses.
