Colourful, creative, authentic and just the kind of delightful new dining spot we need in our lives right now: meet Humble on Duke, the intimate—and yes, humble—14-seater restaurant that has already set tongues wagging in the Sunny Coast hospitality scene with its delicious cuisine, creative twists and genuine passion for dishing up good, honest food.
Humble on Duke mixes it up with their ever-changing weekly menu, but you can rest easy knowing it’s always going to be top-notch. Modern Australian flavours take centre stage and are boldly accentuated with Middle Eastern and Mediterranean spices, a combination which makes for a truly delectable experience.
The share-style menu showcases seasonal ingredients and the abundance of fresh local produce. For a set price, you’re able to sample all the menu snacks and a selection of large plates to share, so the good folks at Humble on Duke have done most of the hard work of choosing for you.
To start, we can’t go past the creamy baba ganoush with freshly baked Turkish flatbread and the succulent Noosa Gin cured salmon gravlax with soft herbs and sumac. Although tempting, don’t fill up on the starters—the stars of the show are still to come. For large plates, you can choose from a tantalising array, including Mooloolaba tuna with shaved cucumber and pomegranate and handmade saffron tagliatelle with prawns and garlic chill butter. Say it with us: epically drool-worthy.
The extensive wine list is hand-curated by the owners, Stacey Conner and Jade Tareha, and pairs perfectly with the authentic-yet-creative cuisine. The Dukkiuri, with Pampero rum, date syrup, lemon and dukkah salt might just be our new favourite cocktail.
"We believe we're onto something pretty special, " Jade says, and we couldn't agree more. "We've aligned ourselves with some very special people who share our core beliefs and we need to be changing the world one delicious dish at a time."
Humble on Duke is open Thursday to Monday, from 5pm to 10pm, so get booking.
