LOWE

Contemporary dining spot with sharing dishes so good that you’ll struggle to share
  • 2

Time Out Says

A common way to start a restaurant review is with what’s known as a ‘drop intro’. Entice the reader by wafting flavours through words before wryly revealing the verdict at the end.

But with LOWE, we’re going to be straight up. Everything about this new contemporary dining spot is absolutely bang on, and you should get to KOA Canvas right now to experience it yourself. Every single thing we order is steeped in originality and inventiveness, with adventurous flavour combinations and creative presentation that doesn’t stray too far from the restaurant’s warm and homely vibe.

The dishes here are supposed to be shared between the table, but we struggle to release custody of the delicate whipped aubergine that’s coated in crunchy ancient grains. We’re also desperate not to let go of the warm woodfired bread, which is just hot enough to quickly melt the accompanying butter, and it’s nigh on impossible to part with the pressed cucumbers in a delightful smokey labneh.

And that’s just the starters. The main courses bring more joy, with a ricotta agnolotti paired with braised capretto and chard leaves as well as enough Parmesan cheese to fill a deli counter. The broken wheat salad with crispy duck leg is enormous, and the blood orange segments add a sweet twist.

But the real highlight is the chocolate and sunchoke dessert that comes with coffee grind caramel and honeycrunch. It’s a total fusion of flavours and textures, all carefully stacked in a dark brown bowl of deliciousness.

Every dish here is a hit, and we’ll definitely be back.
