Rising Sun Workshop’s food programme first drew attention via a pop ramen shop back in 2014, fast forward a few years and Nick Smith’s menus still draw cues from Japanese cuisine among others. Nick feels that the effect that migration, cultural movement and travel has had on food, best defines the Australian table, with dishes reflective of both our diverse past and singular geography. Rising Sun Workshop currently holds one hat in the Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Food Guide.
Nick Smith, executive chef and co-owner of Rising Sun Workshop, has specially designed a delicious menu that was inspired by the unique surrounds of the harbour whilst doing what he does best, fusing flavours to create something that will certainly get those taste buds going.
Nick Smith “In designing this two-course menu, I’ve tried to take cues from the harbour setting, a place of trade and exchange, where culture and commodity bump and blur. In the first course, there’s local barbecue and beer mixed with Chinese texture and a little Italian indulgence. For the main course, Mexico meets Japan in a winter bento”.
