Beloved Parnell eatery Simon & Lee is now open for dinner

It was only a matter of time before the duo behind the esteemed (and relatively new) cafe Simon & Lee opened its doors for dinner. We’re just glad it’s come sooner than we had anticipated. Officially starting this Friday 15th September, the fare draws obvious parallels to its daytime menu, putting an Asian-inspired twist on some of the classics we know and love. There are the nibbles that pair perfectly with a chilled beer — think edamame, kimchi fritters, stir fried bok choy and shoestring fries served with wasabi mayo — then there’s KFC (Korean Fried Chicken), spicy pork loin marinated in chilli sauce as well as a few more filling options. The oven-baked whole fish that comes glazed in miso and topped with toasted sesame seeds, chilli dressing, coriander, mint and mango, for instance, is a winner.

Whether you want to pop in for a drink and a small bite or get comfy for the evening, Simon & Lee is sure to leave you well satiated… although possibly not wanting to leave until you’ve tried it all.

Dinner opening hours:
5pm-9pm, Thursday-Saturday
