Mirritya Mundya Indigenous Twist want to take you on an exclusive Indigenous Food Journey.
We will be traveling around the Shoalhaven area to host our Pop Up Restaurants.
Come along to experience an immersive pop-up Indigenous 5 course food journey.
This pop-up dinner is set to display incredible dishes made with local & native produce with our Indigenous twist.
Dwayne will then welcome you with some traditional song. “When you sing up the old ways it always makes the food taste better.”
- 5.30- 6pm : Dinner night opens & seating.
- 6pm: Starters- grazing boards & the opening of the food journey.
- 7pm – 9pm : 3 consecutive Indigenous Food Journey Main dishes, followed by Desserts with a native influence, dish explanations & connecting cultural interpretations flow throughout the night.
Please be mindful of how seating is configured on the night, we have carefully set out and have a product & service plan for all guests attending and seating arrangements cannot be altered on the night. Please let us know in the special requests section of your booking if you have a specific request or are joining other guests on the night, these can be considered within reason however we must know prior to the event.
Respectful Cultural Interpretation Protocols
Throughout the night you will be taken through specific Indigenous interpretations, culinary discussions and being brought into our family cultural space. We ask all our guests attending to be open, mindful and respectful of this important process which solidifies this unique bespoke experience as just that.
We would like to state that this is an Indigenous led food journey not a gastronomic culinary experience.
Please be mindful of our sustainability approach of keeping your plate & cutlery for all 3 mains. Starter & Dessert settings will be served separately.
Our experiential dinner offers a carefully thought out set menu with considerations to accommodate certain dietary requirements. We will do our best to cater for requests, we also can make slight adjustments to the menu offering e.g - a pescatarian will receive a larger fish, miss the beef and gain extra sides and on request the extra vegetarian option for a main.
We do want to stress the importance of informing us upon booking of your dietary requirements (no less than 48 hours prior to event) we also would like to respectfully put the onus back on the individual/group contact to assist us in defining the request.
Mirritya Mundya also cannot guarantee that traces of allergy specific products would be present for the dishes served, however we will do our utmost to include everyone we can to enjoy the night. The specific dietary requirements will be asked in the booking information, we would also ask if there is a specific request could you please note that in your other requirements section.
