Howler is an enormous new bar / restaurant in Brunswick between Sydney Rd and the railway line off Dawson St. Compared to most venues, which have a larger inside than outside, Howler has an extensive outdoor space that is several times larger than its interior.

My friend and I were impressed with the cocktails – a whiskey sour for her and the King of Kraken for me – run, pomegranate and cinnamon. We also ordered a light meal. They offer dumplings, spring rolls and spicy salads.

We selected two kinds of dumplings (the menu is not on their website and I cannot remember exactly what they contained), crocodile and lemon myrtle spring rolls and a papaya, pineapple and chili salad. Howler is very new and I forgave them the fact that the dumplings were lukewarm by the time they arrived at our table. I think the staff were surprised by how many customers they had on a Monday night. The crocodile spring rolls were really good and the salad too.

The huge outdoor space is going to be epic in warmer weather. Once the kitchen gets into a rhythm this place is going to be very tempting to return to.
