Last night I ate at Mama Ganoush on Chapel St in Windsor. It got a mostly positive review in the Age recently and I like using these reviews to choose restaurants. I forgot to take my camera but fortunately Deep Dish Dreams has taken some excellent photos of the food.

We started with the cheesy ladies thigh pastries (below) and the kid kofte. Both were delicious though the kofte were not exceptional.

We then had the zucchini stuffed with minty ricotta, which we were undecided about, and the roasted rabbit with broad beans, which was truly wonderful, and a side of amazing creamy spinach with caramelised onion and yogurt (below).

I also had the delightfully presented apricot and cardamom pudding in the shape of the crescent moon and an arabic coffee. Overall verdict – good, worth visiting and probably returning to – but the entrees are overpriced. The service was excellent and the short wine list diverse and more than adequate.

The worst thing on reading their business card and visiting the website advertised on it was to discover, yet again, no site there. This is a basic marketing failure that makes me suspicious of the business management skills of the restrauranteur.

    Nice pix – LOL! ;) I think you’ll find that the proprietor has a day job, works in the restaurant at night and will most probably get to building the website when he can. We were back on Friday night and once we told Geoff that we had now eaten our way through the entire menu, were happy to hear that the menu will change next week. Just another reason to return really.
