Foodie Treasures of Sullivans Cove
by Stephanie Williams and Peta Hen
A stone’s throw from Salamanca, you’ll find Sullivans Cove,
A little trove of foodie finds, for any appetite.
CASA DE AMOR MEXICAN BAR AND KITCHEN
11 Morrison Street, Hobart
Another gem calling the City Mill home is Casa De Amor, formerly known as Tacos. A longtime Hobartian favourite famous for their fishbowl margaritas, Casa De Amor is an atmospheric Mexican restaurant with a menu that packs a punch. Standouts are the smoky pork adobo carnitas, moreish chimmi changas and the luscious Del Mar dip packed with prawns and scallops. They also do a mean sangaria if you’re up for something a little more moody than a margs.
We’ll be back for: Del Mar dip and Fishbowl Margaritas of course.
STOCK MARKET RESTAURANT
8 Brooke St, Hobart
Tucked within the rich heritage brick of the City Mill building, you’ll find stock market. The restaurant has a swanky, urban vibe, a host of great wines and an impressive menu with impeccably balanced, contemporary dishes. The roast garlic and truffle butter gnocchi is in a league of its own with pillowy soft potato pasta immersed in delectably intense truffle sauce, I’m still thinking about it. Every dish on the menu is a perfect flavour and texture experience that will leave you wanting more. Along with dinner, they also do bottomless brunch seven days a week.
We’ll be back for: Roast Garlic and Truffle Butter Gnocchi, obviously.
1/7 Murray St, Hobart
While Institut Polaire is a beautiful place to while away a few hours eating exceptional food and drink from their tasting menu, it’s also a wonderful pitstop on a Sunday afternoon for a katsu sando. These are the bomb – a crumbed Berkshire pork cutlet, sandwiched between two slices of, in this case, brioche with mayonnaise and iceberg lettuce. It’s juicy, crunchy and soft all at once and is best accompanied by one of Institut Polaire’s expertly crafted cocktails. Open from 4pm on Sundays.
We’ll be back for: An Antarctic Dry Martini.
