Honoured to have the opportunity to dine at this cosy spot away from the hustle bustle of Melbourne. It was truly a degustation journey focused on fermentation involving both food and drinks. Chae really takes it to the next level with sustainable farming in their own backyard

Owners Chae and Yoora have created an intimate dining experience nestled in the hills of the Dangenong Ranges. The setting is calm, minimalist and warm. Although the food is simple, delicious and conveys the wholesome quality of a home cooked meal. It is evident how much time, preparation, effort and thought has been spent in order to culminate such an experience.

Brilliant model for intimate dining experience. Excellent refined flavours, a lot of produce and ingredients grown on site. Very affordable for the experience. There is no wonder that they had to change to ballot bookings. Good luck to everyone getting another seating!

I can’t describe it in a way that does justice to chef Jung Eun philosophy on food. She has a passion to share Korean culture with Australia and is doing so in a way that pays homage to imperial dining and her parents. Homemade fermented produces, condiments and sauces feature in every dish, ingredients including her mum’s home made oil makes its way from Korea to Melb.
