Za Za Ta restaurant is slated to launch at the Ovolo hotel in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley this August.
Chef Roy Ner (Nour, Aria) and Dario Manca (Pilu) are spearheading the venue which revolves around Middle Eastern Cuisine.
“We want to showcase approachable Middle Eastern cuisine that excites the palate, creates a sense of discovery and just tastes delicious,” says Ner. “I want to highlight flavours by playing with old and new cooking, and blending cultures through local produce incorporated into traditional Middle Eastern dishes.”
The restaurant will open for brunch, lunch and dinner and offer a range of traditional Israeli dishes designed to share. The menu will be split into nibbles, small plates, a raw section, large plates and sides.
Breads, dips, charcuterie and cheese will all be made in-house and a late-night menu will be on offer from 11pm until midnight, serving snacks inspired by street food found in Tel Aviv.
The drinks offering will champion cocktails, craft beers and rums along with a wine list encompassing middle eastern, French, Italian and local bio dynamic and organic varieties.
