Also on offer is Heritij, headed up by Michelin-starred chef Manjunath Mural. With a unique approach to Asian-Indian cuisine, Heritij fuses traditional Indian techniques and contemporary Asian flavours to create a dining experience that is unlike any other. Their signature dish, the Flambé Leg of Lamb, will be flambéed at the table for diners to share and boasts royal influences from the Nawabs Of India. It features whole-roasted spiced lamb leg, served alongside heirloom carrots, beetroot and mint sauce. Working alongside Malt Dining’s Nick Pinn and Saffron’s Sridhar Penumechu, Manjunath has created a bar and dining experience that is entirely unlike any other in Brisbane.
He explains, “Playing with ingredients, colours, flavours, presentation and garnishes makes me happy. I like the constant thinking it requires, and the way we can modify the cuisine, and shape it according to local demand, while still ensuring diners know it is Indian cuisine. My dream is to share my style in presenting Indian cuisine in a way which is relevant to diners across the world, and that haute Indian cuisine will one day be as accepted as haute French dining.”
