Colonel Tan’s, Melbourne
Colonel Tan’s is the latest food sensation creation by Cookie’s Karen Batson. The kitsch Thai menu is served at Revolver’s upstairs supersized loungeroom to the beats of a live — caged — DJ. Combining classic Thai dishes, such as Pad Thai and, my favourite, Beatle leaves with Chicken Nuggets and Kaffir lime, the whole experience is very laidback and cheeky. Even better is that Thursday night is fifty percent off for locals in the 3181 postcode. Lucky me!
