Need a little pick-me-up this week? We reckon this will do the trick. Supernormal’s Canteen is heading to St Kilda, and it’s bringing lobster rolls. If anything can trigger a Ferris Bueller-style spontaneous street parade down Ackland St to the tune of Twist and Shout…this is it.
The Supernormal test kitchen has popped-up before, but this time the move is permanent. Owner and chef mega-star Andrew McConnell will be opening the kitchen inside the now-closed Luxembourg restaurant in late July.
McConnell himself won’t be running the show though. That job’s been given to sous chef Tim Geogan (God’s speed, Tim). The menu will feature the obligatory lobster rolls, of course, as well as garlic yakitori, crispy pig’s head bao, steamed pork buns, chicken skin chicharrones, Chongqing popcorn and all the dumplings you could ever possibly want. The capper is a bona fide charcoal yakitori bar, plus a paired-back drinks list to suit the more casual vibe. Get the hell excited, St Kilda.
Oh yeah, one more thing: it’s going to offer home delivery. Sweet Jesus...
Where: 2/157 Fitzroy St, St Kilda
When: The Canteen will be open as of late July (stay tuned)
