CTS Western Suburbs Food Festival No.1: Searz, 39 Challis Street, Newport
Tuesday, May 16, 2017.
For sure, I thought, most of the attendees at Searz would go for the bento of miso-braised baby back ribs.
I was wrong.
The ox-tail ravioli in a laksa broth won the day by a comfortable margin.
I was among those who enjoyed them – they were very, very fine.
As was everything else.
Thanks to Gopi and Joyce (in the kitchen) and Michael and Reyner (out front) for ensuring a lovely evening was enjoyed by all.
Thanks to all the various friends and regulars who fronted up for the first CTS event in about a year.
It was fun to be doing it again.
Thanks, too, to the half-dozen guests who’d probably never heard of Cosnider The Sauce but who – as Searz regulars – knew a very good thing when they saw it!
