The new kid on the block in Waterloo’s Dank St Precinct is Luke’s Kitchen by Australian restaurateur Luke Mangan. Luke’s Kitchen moves into the former space of MOJO by Luke Mangan, at 8 Danks Street, Waterloo. and has already excited Foodies everywhere.
“It’s unpretentious, it’s comfortable, and it’s a place where guests can swing down for a glass of wine and oysters, or the works,” says Mangan. “We’re here for everyone.”
The space is now an intimate 70-seat casual eatery, injected with new energy and a colour palette of earthy green and blush pink, with retro finishes.
The menu spans moreish snacks, share-friendly plates and sides with modern Australian influence, as well as a few Mangan classics given a twist. A daily specials list rounds out the offering, including whole fish and hearty roasts for two, carved at the table.
Dishes from the opening menu include:
- Tasmanian ocean trout sashimi with nam jim and coconut yoghurt
- Roasted organic chicken with cauliflower purée, asparagus and preserved lemon
- Barbecued West Australian marron with peach, celery and truffle honey
