Saison at Sunda | 15 June

Dave Verheul’s delicious aperitifs come to Sunda in this afternoon of cocktails and snacks as part of Drink Victorian month. Bound by the common thread of re-interpreting tradition and infusing it with a fresh, new touch, Dave and Nabil have come together to pair three cocktails, three snacks and a straight-up tasting of Saison’s vermouth and amaro.


Come for this special masterclass with Dave, held upstairs at our bar on June 15th. Bookings are essential.



pie tee, preserved vegetables, sunchoke
Apostle – Artichoke Vin Amaro, Dry Gin, Passionfruit Husk, Lemon


Cape Moreton prawns, shrimp chutney, chickpea tartlet
Pink Lake – Spring Rhubarb Vermouth, Gospel Rye, Whole Mandarin, Carbonation


rempeyek, duck liver parfait, pickled rosella
Feathertop – Fallen Quince Vermouth, Morris Whisky, Lacto-Pear, Pine Needle, Cheese Rind



Saison was conceived from the idea that Australian vermouth could have a fresher, seasonal, singular-ingredient focus (vs the traditional heavy spice and caramel palettes). Nabil takes Sunda down a similar path – bringing traditional dishes in line with modern times. Together, this afternoon promises good drinks and on and off-menu bites.

Set down a very Melbourne laneway in a setting inspired by the glowing lanterns of Asia, Sunda is a modern Southeast Asian restaurant celebrating the bold, brilliant flavours of the region.


We draw on elements of traditional cooking – the mortar and pestle, hand-pounded sambals and curry pastes; dishes both new and familiar, taken apart, re-spun and imbued with a refreshing take.


Come on a culinary expedition with us, for dinner or drinks and snacks at our bar.


Pre-theatre diners and walk-ins are welcome.
