Think Asian night markets. Think twinkling lights, street vendors and bamboo screens. Now add architects, designers and an Australian chef who loves Asian flavours. Teage Ezard is known for the modern Flinders Lane restaurant that bears his name. Gingerboy is his second label, so to speak. It’s in a great Melbourne laneway and the mood is reminiscent of Asian night markets. It’s made up of black slatted bamboo studded with tiny lights on the walls, clear plastic chairs, small dark tables clustered together in a small space with an adjoining bar that is open on Friday and Saturday nights.

There’s a lot of play here – between Melbourne designer chic and Asian hawker markets, between street food ideas and glamorous food presentation, between casual Asian food and excellent European and Australian wines. It’s fun, often noisy, often pricey and always delicious. The chicken and Chinese cabbage dumplings are irresistible and three to a serve. Try the ocean trout, a pink slab with a roasted chilli dressing and cubes of avocado alongside. The red duck leg curry is another dish to share. The wine list is full of lesser known European wines; a German gewurtztraminer is ideal with the silky smooth coconut marinated kingfish topped with crunchy peanuts and slivers of roasted chilli. Note that there are two sittings at night, one at 6pm and again at 8pm.

The service is second to none as well. Had a lovely girl when I went there who knew the menu back to front. My gluten allergy was no issue at all. I will be back for sure.review  21/07/2012
