Bax Food Co, 83 Gamon Street, Yarraville. Phone: 0402 751 108
SEE REVIEW HERE.
Since our initial story reporting the exciting news that a Jamaican restaurant is soon to open in Yarraville, Consider The Sauce has made contact with two of the three partners involved, and enjoyed some cordial conversations with Dalton and Roderick about their plans.
Unfortunately, efforts to synchronise all three partners and myself to be in the same place at the same time for a photograph were bettered by busy schedules all round.
Oh well – it’s time for an update anyway, especially as opening night is almost upon us!
Here’s the details …
The restaurant will be known as Bax Food Co and will operate out of the former home Gravy Train at 83 Gamon Street.
Opening night will be this coming Friday, February 20, on which night there will be 6pm and 8pm sittings.
Bookings can be made via firstname.lastname@example.org 0402 751 108.
The “bax” part of their name comes from a casual style of eating in Jamaica whereby instead of sit-down meals, customers get a “bax” (box) full of goodies.
Bax Food Co will, of course, serve their food this way, too, though Roderick assures me some of the sides will be presented regular style on regular plates!
At the time of going to press, the menu was still being completed … but Roderick did number off several dishes that will be available:
Rice ‘n’ peas.
Spicy jerk roast corn with coconut jerk mayo.
Fish will be in the form of whole snapper, which will be the top-priced item at about $30.
