If you love experiencing exceptional Gold Coast dining venues from the comfort of your own home as much as we do, you’re going to want to get involved in The Star Gold Coast’s latest offering, Table for 2.
The dine-at-home experience launched in May with the venue’s popular restaurants Mei Wei Dumplings, Garden Kitchen & Bar and Kiyomi all delighting diners with multi-course share menus to be enjoyed at home. All of which, were absolutely incredible as you might expect.
Now though, The Star Gold Coast has upped-the-ante offering even more options – including Kiyomi’s award-winning sushi, Mei Wei Dumplings’ delicious array of dumplings and our favourite Italian, Cucina Vivo, has joined the party.
It’s all very exciting and because we know you’re very keen to get right onto eating it all, here’s a little rundown of what you can indulge in.
Kiyomi’s menu is available from Tuesday to Saturday for dinner from 5pm to 9pm and for the first time you can order sushi boxes to enjoy at home. Choose from the 16-piece sushi or sashimi boxes or discover Kiyomi’s newest treasure – The Chirashi Jewel Box. Further additions include Hasting River Oysters with a Japanese ponzu sauce and fresh Western Australian Black Truffles available by the gram. We’ll take all of that please.
Restaurant Executive Chef Chase Kojima and his team also have crafted an extensive menu highlighting Kiyomi’s wide array of unexpected and complex flavours for $60 per person. You can check out the full menu here.
The brand new Cucina Vivo menu is available for dinner from Tuesday to Saturday from 5pm to 9pm and it’s a six-course offering that will take your tastebuds to the Amalfi Coast (yes please). For $95 for two people, the menu starts with a chef’s selection of Salumi with a side of buffalo mozzarella, followed by a seafood delight with local prawns, mussels and fish cooked in chilli and tomato. The hero dish is the North Rivers veal cooked in creamy Marsala, with side of Patate and Insalata Di Rucola. Dessert is a house made tiramisu with house made savoiardi, mascarpone diplomat crème, Nutella and coffee. Heavenly. Lock yours in for tonight here.
The Mei Wei Dumplings menu is available every day for dinner from 5pm to 9pm and you can now add your favourite dim sum and fried dumplings to your order. For only $35 per person, the Table for 2 menu will showcase some of the hawker-style venue’s most popular dishes including pork steamed dumplings, pork and prawn wonton soup with egg noodles, spicy kung pao chicken with dried chilli and mushroom and peanuts with vegetable fried rice. Dessert will be the deliciously light chilled mango sago cream. Put your order in here.
Garden Kitchen & Bar is also available for dinner from 5pm to 9pm, Tuesday to Sunday and for just $50 per person will offer some of their most loved dishes. Start with marinated olives, followed by two entrees of a king prawn salad served with cos lettuce, avocado and a cocktail sauce and Olympus halloumi with pickled figs. The main dish is a braised O’Connor Shortrib served with sides including broccolini with almonds and crispy roasted rosemary chat potatoes. To finish, there’s a chocolate trifle with a light crumble and fresh raspberries. Love this! Find out more here.
In addition to the ‘Table for 2’ sharing menus, The Star’s beverage team has developed a series of hand-crafted cocktails perfect for pairing with the meals including a Japanese Margarita with El Jimador Tequila, Cointreau, Yuzu Juice and Agave, and a Cold-Brew Martini with Sesame Infused Ketel One Vodka, Tia Maria and Coffee.
