Looking for your next place to celebrate the Easter weekend and indulge in some seriously good dishes featuring Olympus Cheese? Try Banyo’s favourite bar Clapham Junction Wine Bar Provisions. Recently voted runner-up in the Weekend Edition Awards for Brisbane’s Best New Bar, it’s one not to miss. Fittingly off Royal Parade, you can indulge yourself in their world class selection of beer, wine, cider and boutique spirits and snack on some outrageously delicious nibbles like the #queen you are.
If you haven’t been out to Banyo recently it is fast becoming a hub for good quality food, coffee and wine. Clapham Junction is cute and charming with a chilled out atmosphere to make the most uptight person relax. Owned and operated by celebrity chef Dominique Rizzo and Simon McCarthy with head chef Sam Richards (who has an on-point Instagram you can check out here). Dominique also owns Putia Pure Food Kitchen beside it, offering an amazing selection of beautifully tasty and insta-worthy brunch delights.
Whether it’s a daytime pick me up you’re after or a chilled evening of wine or cocktails with friends, Banyo has got you covered showcasing fresh local produce, including our own Olympus Cheese.
Here are a few MUST TRY menu items from Clapham Junction…
Clapham twice-cooked lamb
Clapham Junction are big fans of twice-cooked lamb, and they pair it beautifully with spiced Olympus Cheese yoghurt, mint and drizzled with pomegranate. Watch as head chef Sam Richards transforms Olympus Cheese’s yoghurt which is something typically so simple, into a saucy staple that truly complements the juicy and flavoursome Lamb Ribs. This dish is to die for.
Halloumi Fries, mint yoghurt and pomegranate
Potato fries were so last century! Halloumi is now officially where it’s at. Two of Olympus Cheese’s favourite products (our halloumi and yoghurt) combined together in this recipe to create pure heaven. The added pomegranate creates an absolute taste sensation that explodes in your mouth. Order these cheesy dream sticks along with your favourite beverage and you’re on your way to starting your weekend right.
We promise Clapham Junction is a night out you won’t regret.
After Easter, their breakfast menu will also feature a beautiful fruit bruschetta with Olympus Ricotta smothered on a wood-fired ciabatta with seasonal fruits, local honey, pistachios and a house made vanilla bean labneh made using Olympus Yoghurt. We can’t wait!
Over Easter, Clapham Junction will also be serving a range of delicious dishes including torched Fremantle octopus, squid ink spaghetti with scallops, prawns and chilli, or a delectable lamb sirloin on cauliflower puree.
Or if you have some serious brunch goals, you can also pick up an amazing slow braised lamb burger with Olympus Halloumi, yoghurt sauce and lemon rosemary fries at Putia Pure Food Kitchen this weekend.
