It has been a long week. The cupboard’s bare and your bin is full of greasy takeaway containers. You long for a fresh, home-cooked meal but you certainly don’t have the energy to throw it together yourself. Thankfully, Urban Provedore has already done it for you.
The Toorak Road shopfront has cabinets lined with takeaway lunch and dinner dishes such as braised duck leg with colcannon potato, duck and orange reduction or lemongrass beef curry with basmati rice. Everything is locally sourced where possible.
For former head chef at the Tanti on Mornington Hotel on the Mornington Peninsula, Andy Ledson, freshness is paramount for flavor and for getting the most nutrients out of food.
Urban Provedore also has an all-day dine-in breakfast menu with crowd-pleasers such as Spanish baked eggs with house baked beans. The venue is licensed, allowing you to settle in with a glass of King Valley Prosecco or Mountain Goat Ale.
Urban Provedore also sells some of its favourite, quality products, with shelves lined with everything from The Hidden Souk spices to Yarra Valley preserves and Pangkarra pastas.
