One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. At least when it comes to the history of Suburban Table. There was a devastating fire only one year after the restaurant opened. The original owner gutted the kitchen, fixed the place up, and decided to sell the business – which is where owner-chef Josh Prosser stepped in.
Having worked in the kitchen of Suburban Table before, Josh knew exactly how he wanted to transform the venue. With a discreet back-door entrance, western-suburbs location and elegant interior, there’s an air of exclusivity about the place.
Josh and his partner Kelly Corbett run the kitchen, taking culinary inspiration from their favourite holiday destinations. The result is an Asian-Australian menu, which in itself is an understatement. If you’re in the mood for Malaysian, Thai, Indian or even Italian, you’ll find it all here. Don’t miss out on the signature dish: slow-cooked beef rendang with sambal. Locals kicked up a fuss when it disappeared from the menu and it was quickly reintroduced.
There’s a generous drinks list with mainly Australian wines and your favourite local beers. The full restaurant menu is also available for takeaway, if you’re craving beef rendang midway through a Netflix binge.
