Supernormal is Chef Andrew McConnell's newest Asian inspired restaurant.
Readers of this blog will know that we are fans of Andrew McConnell's food and have tried all his other restaurants Builder's Arms, Moon Under Water and Cutler and Co before. I love it that each of his restaurants offers a quite distinct dining experience, but they all share the same trendy-yet-relaxed vibe about them.
I like Supernormal's sleek, slightly quirky Japanese design and the open plan space. Supernormal is super trendy, yet you still feel like a guest coming for a special meal at someone's house.
We tried Supernormal's set menu in this visit. At $65 a head for 7 courses including dessert, I thought this was great value.
|TUNA, AVOCADO, SALTBUSH & KOMBU|
The yellowfin raw tuna belly with avocado and pickled cucumber was amazing and probably my favourite dish. It's a new addition to Supernormal's menu and has been featured as 'a must' by The Daily Telegraph.
|WHITE CUT CHICKEN, SESAME, WOMBOK & CHILLI OIL SALAD|
|PEANUT BUTTER PARFAIT, SALTED CARAMEL & SOFT CHOCOLATE|
The caramel sauce was a bit too rich for me, but the parfait is perfectly smooth with a great combination of savoury flavour and texture from the peanuts and bittersweet yumminess from the soft chocolate.
The Supernormal team was very accommodating of our big family table with lil'kids and all. I love when a restaurant manages to be the new cool kid on the block without feeling pretentious.
One for my highly recommended list.
