We've just found out that four of our absolute fave Northbridge restaurants are joining forces for another epic William Street Long Lunch, taking off across five Saturdays from 30 April through to the end of May.
This time Sauma, La Cholita, No Mafia and Double Rainbow are teaming up to bring us one heck of a roving lunch—four courses, all with matched drinks for just $60 each. Just listen to this line up of eats and drinks and tell us you're not excited.
You'll start your Saturday afternoon on the streets of India at Sauma with a delightful Sauma Spritz and their red chicken tikka roasted in the tandoori oven and served up with kashmiri chilli, turmeric, mint, ginger, pickled onions and watermelon.
Then you'll take a stroll down the road to the Mexican delights of La Cholita where you'll enjoy two tasty tostadas—chorizo, white bean, and feta and charred corn, jalapeno and avocado—alongside a Piña Paloma (blanco tequila, pineapple, lime, passion fruit, agave and soda finished with black salt rim).
Once you've knocked back the last of your paloma, cross the road and head towards the Italian goodness of No Mafia. Here you'll fill your tum with casarecce with ragù alla bolognese while sipping down a glass of vino rosso and dreaming of Tuscany.
Finally, it's time to wander on down to the final destination of your roving lunch: Double Rainbow inside The Rechabite. By now your regular stomach should be adequately full, but don't worry you haven't touched the dessert one yet so you'll easily make room for Double Rainbow's epic black sesame cheesecake with cream and burnt miso caramel before polishing off your last tipple: a salted peach and macadamia old fashioned (bourbon, macadamia and wattleseed liqueur, salted peach syrup and chocolate bitters).
You can begin anytime between 11.30am and 2.30pm and you don't even need to book, so just stroll on in to Sauma and get moving.
