Wondering where to dine this weekend? Consider lunch at Sìso, where a new autumn menu awaits

When planning how we’d like to spend our weekend (given the impending inclement weather), we could think of no better spot to while away an afternoon in gastronomic bliss than Remuera’s beloved Sìso. One of the city’s most consistent dining establishments, Sìso continues to deliver exceptional Mediterranean fare that is enjoyed by locals and those coming from further afield wholeheartedly — and their new autumn menu is making a visit all the more appealing.

Chilled Market Fish Crudo
Glazed Coastal Lamb Ribs

On the autumnal new menu, diners will find a number of inventive, intriguing, and ultimately, mouthwateringly delicious dishes on offer. The Chilled Market Fish Crudo with cashews, pickled grapes, guindilla, and verjus is the perfect place to start, cleansing the palette and setting the tone for what’s to come. The Glazed Coastal Lamb Ribs paired with a flavourful mix of black garlic, pomegranate, and pistachio zhoug are a delight for the senses — and as tasty as the dish is visually stunning.

Spanish Fried Chicken
Spinach and Ricotta Rotolo

When selecting something a touch more substantial, we suggest turning your attention to the Spanish Fried Chicken. Served with ‘nduja butter, hung yoghurt romesco, and lemon, this dish is a modern rendition of the familiar favourite and promises flavour and texture in abundance. If, following a morning spent braving the inclement weather, you’re craving something comforting and hearty, you’ll find it in the Spinach and Ricotta Rotolo finished with toasted walnut, brown butter and Parmigiano Reggiano — a wildly flavourful, moreish dish sure to satisfy.

Free Farmed Pork Meatballs
Market Fish

Continuing on the hearty theme, the Market Fish atop a bed of chopped shrimp and brassicas risoni with pecorino is a unique but undoubtedly delicious option, and the Free Farmed Park Meatballs with pancetta, basil pesto and parmesan is a must-order for the table and a failsafe crowdpleaser sure to impress even the most discerning of diners.

With a vast array of exceptional new dishes, plus the usual selection of libations — including an extensive cocktail list, and of course, plentiful options for sweet satisfaction (the Tiramisu with amaretti crumb is a classic), Sìso is a more than perfect place to spend your Anzac afternoon.

Open from 12.00pm this Anzac Day.
