We moved out to Warburton about six months ago and are enjoying our "tree change". One of the few downsides to life out here has been the lack of a really good restaurant, some pretty good cafes and pubs, but nothing out of the ordinary.
Happy to report we have now discovered Oscar', which is certainly out of the ordinary.
The restaurant only opened in February, the chef has worked for some years at various 5 star establishments in Thailand, and the menu is littered with Thai touches on many of the dishes.
We went with 4 friends and between us we had a fair selection of entrees and mains from the fairly small menu. Every one of us raved about what we had. I started with a Thom Kha soup, the only outright Thai dish on the menu, but not the usual Thom Kha Gai (chicken) rather, small tender pieces of rabbit. The flavours were delicate and very Thai. Other entrees were pork belly (skin beautifully crisp). Blue Cheese ravioli with crispy wonton was another entree that a couple of our group tried.
The most popular main was beef tenderloin, served medium rare it was melt in the mouth delicious, other mains included a Yellow Fin Tuna on Green Papaya Salad, fortunately a little milder than some of those Thai Som tams.
All in all a fantastic dining experience. Entrees were around $14-$16 and mains ranged from $30-$40.
We will certainly be back
