If you’ve tried Devon Cafe’s modern, pan-Asian cuisine, then you’ll be pleased to know the offering is expanding to include a dinner menu.

Launching Devon by Night on July 3, head chef Zach Tan (previously of Guillaume at Bennelong and Pier) will stay true to the restaurant-quality cuisine he is known for, even in Devon’s cafe environment. We’re told to watch out for dishes cooked using the Japanese charcoal BBQ and influences from peninsular Malaysia – with highlights including lobster rolls, pig-ear katsu and venison-loin tataki.

Dessert will include sweet dishes such as tamarind ice-pops and sweet bao with fried ice-cream flavours like pandan and kaya, peanut butter and jam and vanilla bean and salted caramel. As with the daylight menu, there will be a focus on house-made ingredients. Add to that Asian and local beers and wines (paired with the dishes for best effect), and you’ve got a dinner offering worth getting excited about. It’s even better if you can nab a spot in the gorgeous greenery of the walled courtyard when the weather is mild. Or cosy-up inside with the honey-toned beechwood surrounds.
