Palings Kitchen & Bar

Palings Kitchen & Bar is the Merivale Group’s latest addition. Located on level 1 of the ivy complex, the open plan space with an indoor outdoor feel takes a food hall concept and turns it into a cool venue.

At lunchtime, Palings Kitchen is heaving with patrons yet the vibe is casual and laid back with diners seated at timber picnic-style benches and long tables. The occasion is the Kimberley Quest Media Lunch with her captain, Josh Bairstow and Head Chef and Masterchef Professionals winner, Rhys Badcock.

A selection of mixed entrees is perfect to share amongst the group. The standout dish is the tartare of king salmon that combines the freshness of the fish with a gentle heat of the chilli and the ginger. From the main courses, the grilled fish of the day is snapper, perfectly cooked with a moist flesh and a crisp skin on a celeriac and potato purée with sauce vierge. The saltwater potatoes are not to be missed, dry, shrivelled and slightly crisp on the outside and perfectly cooked on the inside.
