Put Hubby on childcare duty and have a girls’ night out at these new gastrobars, which serve up fab food and drinks.
INTREPID GASTRO BAR
#01- 01 Far East Square, tel: 90688297. Open weekdays, 8am-9.30pm; weekends, 9.30am-4pm.
This Aussie gastrobar welcomes the working crowd for breakfast favourites like baked eggs and eggs Benedict before moving on to heavier mains in the afternoon – try the exotic kangaroo sliders if you’re game. The drinks menu offers ciders, ales and wines from Australia. ORDER THESE:
We can’t say no to rice when it’s presented spicy, smoky and al dente like in the Risotto of Prawns & Spicy Chorizo ($19.50).
If you have a group of four to six, go for the mammoth Broiled 200 Days Australian Angus ($120), a beautifully marbled ribeye steak so naturally tasty it’s only seasoned with salt and pepper. The grilled corn salsa on the side is also to die for.
