Cubby's Kitchen from the founder of the Toko restaurants Matt Yazbek, offers quality ‘home cooked’ Lebanese cuisine.
Cubby’s Kitchen pays homage to the Yazbek family heritage with a traditional menu created from Cubby’s own recipes, and delivered with a modern spin. Matt has also drawn on his experience with Toko, applying some of these Japanese cooking techniques to the dishes.
Sounds fascinating doesn't it? Here's a sneak peek at the opening menu from just $5 for snacks and mostly modestly priced for the promised quality with many of the dishes $9 - $16.
We're drooling for Grilled burnt corn zartar, lebanese spices ($6), Ladies fingers flinders island lamb, pine nuts , pommegranite molasses ($11), Basturma rock n’ rolls goats cheese, homemade pastry, labne, zartar ($13), Potato chunks triple cooked potatoes, coriander, garlic sauce ($8), Lamb kafta parsley, onion, yogurt dressing, lebanese spices ($15), and the pictured Samke harra barramundi, harissa, garlic, almonds, onion, parsley ($22.50). Cubby's Kitchen hasn't forgotten the Lebanese sweets - and donuts.
And of course let's not forget the drinks. Cocktail Pommegranite mojito vodka, lime juice, pomegranate, soda, mint, turkish delight ($14) heads the list and our fancy.
