Salted & Hung is a Contemporary Australian restaurant with a menu that has a strong focus on in-house curing and grilling. Elements of smoking, curing and pickling are reflected through the menu using classic curing techniques with the aid of modern instruments to maintain the integrity of flavours.
Charcuterie – Chef’s Selection. All Made In House. Came Pig’s Head Terrine, Prosciutto, Lardo with Truffle Honey, Chorizo and Shoulder Ham, alongside slices of pickles and toasted bread.
63°C Egg, Field Mushrooms & Trout Roe was delicious. Loved the texture, the crunch of the baked parmesan cheese biscuit, and the mushrooms. All combined perfectly for that morning breakfast egg feeling.
Heirloom Tomatoes, Pickled Sorbet & Ricotta was someone else’s choice. It was so Instagrammable that I could not resist not taking a photo.
Cured Salmon, Horseradish & Trout Roe came as a wrong order. Tried a bit, the salmon was well cured, not too salty and still firm despite the curing. Lots of supermarket cured salmon turned mushy after the commercial curing process.
Beef Cheek, Carrot, Scallions & Shiitake was not a wise choice, given that I have not had any good beef cheeks in any restaurant, period. The S&H version was a bit tough, even though the braise was really tasty. If it was done with another cut of meat, I guessed it would be perfect.
Duck & Coppa Toastie | Offally Good – these duo of sandwiches were extremely delicious. The Duck & Coppa Toastie was filled with liberal amount of soft, pate-like meat sandwiched between crisp bread, then subsequently dunked into the funky black garlic mayo made for very addictive eating. The genius combination of prosciutto-esque coppa (cured pork shoulder) and duck rillettes and black garlic dominated our tastebuds with flagrantly meaty overtones, we just had to order these for our meetings as lunch takeaways 3 days later. The Offally Good Sanga was filled with fried tripe, oxtail rillette, beef tongue and pickles. If you are not into offals, then this sandwich is not for you. But if you do, they were so well braised that they made perfect sandwich fillings.
These were all from the Set Lunch Menu. With this try, I would definitely return with the gang for the full dinner a la carte menu. Service was fantastic, and the food even better. The atmosphere was simple and relaxed. Serves Weekend buffets as well.
