Honeycomb is the new venture for Chef Andy Bunn, ex Café Sopra. It is where the old Koi used to be and prior to that Phamish. The space is simple, huge window that opens one side of the building. It can be cramp and incredibly noisy when its full house. However, the food, I have to say, is quite good and satisfying. His signature banoffee pie is on the menu, and so are some of his delicious pasta dishes.
Thought we would share a few of their pasta dishes. Oricchietti with mahi mahi, chili, garlic, and lemon ($24). ‘Shell’ type pasta, it was simple but a lovely dish. Love the chili and garlic sauce, it was flavoursome and perfect for spring-summer food.
The lamb ragu with chili, rosemary and chat potatoes ($26) were absolutely tasty. The lamb was succulent, no lamb after taste, and the chili really gave it a nice kick! I can’t decide which one I like more, the oricchietti or the lamb ragu – both were freaking awesome!
I was getting extremely full by this stage, but we opt for their special dessert, honeycomb semifreddo ($15). Smooth, creamy ice cream cake with large chunks of honeycomb and topped with flakes of chocolate – OH MY! Scrumptious! It was hard not to eat the whole thing on my own!
Service was friendly, and welcoming. It did get extremely noisy when the restaurant was full but thankfully we were almost done and ready to leave. Food TASTY! Compared to Cafe Sopra – well – that’s a hard call. Both were very good and I would happily return to Honeycomb and try their dinner menu.
