Medah Kitchen is located in Westfield’s Knox Ozone. They stand out from the neighbouring venues with their bright orange signage. There’s ample seating outside and the inside is even more spacious with different styles of seating availble. Choose a booth or the high table for a different vibe. I’m sure the seating out the front is a popular spot in the summertime. The food boasts a Mediterranean style with a cafe brunch menu. Open from 9am til late, Medah serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert! They also have a great wine list.
I recently visited Medah Kitchen and was invited to try a selection of dishes from the menu. Starting with the brunch menu we were served Chilli Scrambled, Super Food Bowl, Pulled Pork Benedict and the Mixed Grill Brekky. The scrambled eggs were really tasty with the chilli not being over powering (I can’t handle it too hot). The Super Food Bowl was packed full of the good stuff with quinoa, avo, kale and feta. We added the poached egg to it and there is also the option of adding bacon. The Pork benny was my favourite out of these and I pretty much polished this dish off. The pork was really juicy and flavoursome and the chilli slaw with lime and coriander dressing went perfectly with it. The mixed grill was as the menu said – chorizo, crumbed lamb cutlet, bacon and fried eggs on toast, a standard mixed grill.
I’m not one to knock back dessert for breakfast and was pretty happy to see it was French Toast with a berry pannacotta. YUM! Brioche cooked just right served with all the fruit trimmings and a little pot of maple and lightly toasted marshmallows.
Moving into more lunch and dinner style dishes we were served the Beetroot Bruschetta, Beef Quesadillas, Duck confit gnocchi and the Medah Meat Tray. The bruschetta with pieces of beetroot and pumpkin on top of horseradish cream was a favourite. There was a hint of sweetness from the addition of honey and spice from the dukkah. The duck was cooked well but in this dish I really enjoyed the gnocchi. I think I’ll try the Lamb ragu gnocchi next time. If you’re out with a few friends I highly recommend the Meat Tray. It had SO MUCH MEAT on it and it was Ah-mazing! And it goes perfectly with a beer, wine or cocktail.
