Mina·no·ie (Collingwood)

June 21, 2015

Mina·no·ie, located on a narrow offshoot street in Collingwood, offers fresh, Japanese dishes for those seeking a flavourful escape. Set in a wonderfully large, airy warehouse – the owners pay homage to architecture that creates clean lines and minimalistic chic. Here you can also shop for artfully crafted homewares such as bags, porcelain, stationary and glass.

Lamb meatballs in a spicy tomato sauce. These went particularly well with the soft brown rice as it absorbed the excess sauce dripping from the flavourful morsels of lamb mince containing herbs and pinenuts.

CIBI fish
The fish was delicately coated in spice (perhaps turmeric – but I cannot say for certain). Lightly steamed and served on a bed of salad, this was a perfectly light lunch option. Eaten in between sips of the miso, offered a perfectly salty note.

The served salads consisted of a Japanese potato salad – far more depth of flavour can be found here compared to your run of the mill potato salad. Green beans, brushed with sesame oil perfectly offset the meatiness of the lamb meatballs.

Mina·no·ie is open for lunches daily and their menu is quite diverse whilst still offering café staples. Protip: I have only heard good words to describe their take on a Japanese soba salad.
