Endearing neighbourhood eatery serving hand-picked delicacies from the Pacific Rim.
At the western end of Dumbarton Road, where the bustle of pubs gives way to near suburban serenity, sits Honu – a local eatery with a markedly global outlook on food. Posited as a purveyor of food of the Pacific Rim, its menu reads like a mash-up of the most popular elements of select Asian and North American cuisines. Prawn crackers and kheo curry for a pinch of Thai; gyoza and tempura from Japan; and the ‘sweet chix’ waffles for a whiff of indulgent continental US cuisine. The heterogeneous fusion translates into plates brimming with colours and textures – a characteristic that is epitomised by the Hawaiian poke bowl where teriyaki, spring onion, cucumber, sesame, carrot, edamame beans, nori and tempura prawn gracefully lay atop rice. It looks like an impeccably well-rounded, wholesome dish. Sogginess is anathema to Honu, as the Korean chicken served with a dash of spicy gochujang sauce or the tempura prawn haven’t a single drop of oil too much. Honu’s offerings are a laudable contribution to neighbourhood dining.
Honu serves up global comfort food from around the Pacific Ocean; from panic fried chicken burgers, chicken & waffles to Thai curry and poke bowls. We have a great selection of wine and some classic cocktails with a Honu twist. Come join us.
