Ms.G's - Sun Herald - 29 November 2015 2

  1. 1. Dizzyrideonloadedtastetrain MS G’S 155 Victoria Street, Potts Point 9240 3000, merivale.com.au/msgs sssssssss C haracterful. From the staff to the food to the fit-out, Ms G’s is not lacking in flavour. It’s after 8 on a Thursday night and the place is in full swing. A DJ bops around behind the decks and there is a happy hubbub from feasting couples and cheerful groups. There’s a lot going on and it’s reflected on every level. Red lighting illuminates an installation of ropes strung from the ceiling and a graffiti-esque feature wall of writing. Neon signs, wall murals and an eclectic array of knick-knacks mean every surface is embellished. We are lucky to nab the best seat in the house, a nook at the back of the room by floor-to-ceiling glass that overlooks the city. Our friendly waiter happily chats away, talking us through the menu and revealing her top picks. The curiosity about cheeseburger-flavoured spring rolls is irresistible and my dining partner is impressed. The roll comes with a mini cheeseburger slider, but while it looks like a standard spring roll, it tastes – pickles, meat, cheese and all – like a crunchy, hot cheeseburger. Other dishes also offer new takes on old favourites. A dipping sauce is reminiscent of Vegemite’s caramel-tasting cousin Promite, while the tangy and herbaceous crusted seasoning on deep-fried eggplant ($15) is evocative of salt and vinegar chips. The burrata ($20) is an unexpected flavour sensation; the traditionally Italian fresh cow’s cheese comes swimming in a distinctly Asian sauce of sesame and chilli oils, spinach and peanuts. The char-grilled broccolini, sauce gribiche (a ‘‘green’’ mayonnaise) with crispy fish crumbs ($15) is on the money, as is the perfectly on- point ‘‘Persian fried rice’’ wok-tossed wild and saffron rice, peas, sweetcorn and sunny-side egg ($20). When they get it right, the flavours at Ms G’s are truly fabulous – strange and familiar and satisfying all at the same time. A well-made cocktail and the solid wine list – playfully divided into sections like Freaky, funky and wild or Texture for the tongue – washes the whole experience down nicely. Flavour is full everywhere. Just like everything else at Ms G’s, sometimes it is all too much.

  2. 2. Jow’s sweet and sour lamb ribs ($32) is a little flabby and the Stoner’s Delight ($16) is too stodgy and busy for our taste and leaves me feeling slightly unwell. You can’t walk into a dessert like that lightly, though, after a feast of rich, in-your-face flavours. After all, the doughnut ice-cream comes with peanut dulce de leche, peanut and pretzel brittle, crispy bacon, Mars bar brownie, passionfruit curd, potato chips and deep-fried Nutella. Perhaps, like any good roller-coaster, we just got caught up in the ride, and part of that is walking away feeling a little overstimulated. Ms G’s takes you back, brings you forward and takes you on a fun, flavour-packed adventure. The food and feeling of this Merivale venture is playful and serious, nostalgic and forward-thinking. This makes it the perfect place for stretching your taste buds while satisfying a desire for comfort food. Ms G’s impresses without being too formal or losing its sense of fun. Forget about a quiet – or cheap – night out and embrace the ride. Just don’t expect safe or subtle or a quiet night in. Ms G’s takes diners on a fun, flavour-packed adventure, writes SARAH BERRY. Ms G’s has new takes on old favourites and is a great place for stretching your taste buds; (below) the Stoner’s Delight.
