If you were raised in a traditional Italian family — or had the great fortune to be raised in the region, you may be familiar with the term ‘Merenda’. As a child, it may have been as simple as bread and butter with a sprinkle of sugar, or as extravagant as a bowl of homemade gnocchi with fresh tomato sauce prepared by your Nonna. The Italian term ‘Merenda’ refers to an afternoon snack or ‘the thing one deserves’ and is intended to fill the gap between lunch and dinner. Typically an after-school ritual for the young in Italy, Merenda at Soumah is for grown-ups. Join Soumah for a spread of sweet and savoury bites, accompanied by a glass of Italian Prosecco or their slightly sweet Brachetto Frizzante. The dishes may vary on the day, depending on produce availability but it will always be fresh and delicious. Your table is likely to be filled with a house-made duck terrain, cured meats, creamy burrata, crusty bread, freshly filled mini cannoli, decadent tiramisu — and perhaps, Chef Paul will surprise you with something like… chocolate salami. Reservations essential. Entry Cost All tickets $45 - $45pp Includes a spread of sweet and savoury Italian treats, with a choice of Italian Prosecco or our slightly sweet Brachetto Frizzante.
