Farm to Table, Table to Kerabear.
I won’t bloat this post, for I will let this place speak for itself: Acre Eatery is simply stunning. It is stunning in terms of the space, the farm to table initiative, the food, the service, even the wine selection is impeccable. All of this in Camperdown, of all places.
From first impression, it looks like a farm, but it’s what keeps it a hidden gem. The dining room and al fresco garden terrace is so spacious and beautiful, you forget you’re in the city. This month, the commons has been transformed from “Acre’s usual rustic minimalist atmosphere into a provincial Italian farmhouse, full of pastoral charm, with floral installations using olive and citrus trees along with four large scale ‘garden gate’ hanging installations” and the food menu is inspired by authentic Italian home-style cooking.
What we ate:
Antipasti: Baked cheese, confit garlic, truffle honey - this was absolutely amazing.
Primi: Wild mushroom mafalda, pine nut, sorrel pesto, pecorino
Hand-made gnocchi, roasted butternut, chilli, chestnut, parmesan
Secondi: Wagyu rump steak Florentina 400g to share, roasted garlic, anchovy butter
Dessert trolley, we ate the cannoli and the tiramisu.
Rather than explain in detail what each dish was like, trust that everything had was truly special. Especially that baked cheese, woooow.
