Gingerboy rolls out of bed for Bottomless Sunday Brunch
For the first time in its 10-year history, Teage Ezard’s Southeast Asian restaurant Gingerboy is opening on the day of rest for Bottomless Sundays, a street food-style brunch-cum-lunch banquet.
Diners can pull tuck into to 11 delicious dishes from a set banquet menu and bottomless drinks like mimosas, Yuzu Bellinis and Chandon sparking.
The Bottomless Sundays selection includes off-menu items such as fresh tofu with tom kha, prawn soldiers with sweet and sour sauce and ox cheek potstickers with cashew soy. There’s also duck larb with lotus and pomelo, and sticky rice with chicken and lup chong (Chinese sausage).
Classics dishes on the menu include exotic mushroom dumplings with dark chilli jam and Szechuan spiced pork bao with onion jam and pickled cucumbers.
The Gingerboy dessert platter satisfies the sweet-toothed with dishes like steamed ginger pudding with spiced cream and ginger bread, and white chocolate tamarind parfait with sweet lotus chips and winter citrus.
Book in for this long, lazy Sunday feast between 11.30am-2.30pm on Sundays for $98 per head. A booze-free option is also available for $63.
Gingerboy restaurant owner Teage Ezard says that after almost 20 years in the industry, he’s never seen a bigger demand for Sunday dining options in Melbourne.
‘Only in the last year we’ve seen an increase in the number of people wanting to book or walk in on a Sunday, the most popular sittings seem to be early or late lunch.
‘Big Bottom(less) Sundays is a great way to ease into the new week – the set menu means we do the thinking for our guests. It’s all about making Sundays as relaxed as possible,’ Ezard said.
If you can’t get out of bed as early as Gingerboy, try dinner and lychee martinis at nearby asian eatery East
