A mouth-watering prospect…
Mount Victoria’s Marjoribanks Street has welcomed a brand new Bistro, and it looks pretty damn amazing. On November 24, Amok rolled into town.
Amok aims to present European-style cuisine, combined with a Trans-Tasman wine list. They specialise in divine, hand-rolled pasta and charcoal cooked dishes.
According to owners Thom Millott and Natasha Piper, the spot doesn’t fit in with stereotypical Italian, Asian Fusion or tapas bar tropes. They serve up modern sharing plates of a large variety.
Dishes include drool-worthy mussels with chilli and aioli, gorgeous steak tartare with fried potato, beautiful kingfish and kiwi plus much more. On top of the delicious plates, Amok uses butchers paper as the food menu to prevent waste.
The menu always features snacks, and a number of other pastas and dishes that change daily. Along with the Trans-Tasman wine selection, attendees can expect a drinks menu of local craft beers and some unique non-alcoholic drops.
