Shed 5 is a modern Greek/Mediterranean restaurant in the South Wharf restaurant precinct. South Wharf is a short walk over the Seafarers Bridge from the WTC Wharf precinct. Shed 5 is literally located in one of the old cargo sheds on the Yarra River. Renovated of course! DFO and the Hilton Hotel are neighbours as are a number of restaurants and bars.
|Setting sun giving the city a beautiful glow!|
I dined at Shed 5 with my sisters on a beautiful summer night. To start we shared some entrees.
|Fava Puree - Fried Chickpeas, Shallot, Hazelnuts $8|
I'm afraid my picture does not do the Fava Puree justice. It was divine. Creamy and soft then topped with gorgeous crunchy chickpeas and hazelnuts. I would return to Shed 5 for this dish alone! We ordered some Pita Bread to dip.
|N'Duja & Mozzarella Croquettes - Oregano & Rosemary Aioli $4ea|
|Saganaki Cheese - Grilled Onions & Roasted Peppers $16|
|Bannockburn Half Chicken - Zucchini and Haloumi Fritters $32|
For main I had the Bannockburn Half Chicken. A large serve but delicious. Cooked in the wood oven the skin was beautifully crispy and the meat juicy and succulent. The fritters were an interesting addition and very tasty.
|Slow Roasted Lamb Neck - Dates, Pinenuts, Capers $32|
My sisters both ordered the lamb and were very happy with their meal. The meat was beautifully tender and melted in your mouth.
|Spring Village Salad - Peppers, Olives, Green Beans, Barrel Aged Feta $13|
|Potato Fries - Bay Leaves, Chilli, Rosemary, Garlic $8|
We ordered salad and potato fries to enjoy with our mains. Nice classic flavour combinations.
|Almond Praline & Honey Semifreddo, Apricot Sorbet, Berries $12|
Shed 5 was a lovely dining experience. I look forward to returning.
