Supernormal Canteen - is open in St Kilda!
“The most fun I have ever had working in a restaurant” – Andrew McConnell
Supernormal Canteen is now open in St Kilda. No carbon copy of its big city sister, this is Supernormal Tokyo-style: faster, louder and livelier. A smoking yakitori at the central bar informs a playful menu comprising of new dishes as well as some old favourites.
“The summer of Supernormal Canteen was the most fun that we’ve ever had working in a restaurant. It was a special time and place, and an experience that I’ve wanted to revisit for some time now, but we just had to wait for the right moment, the right fit,’ says McConnell.
Running the show are seasoned Supernormal city veterans Zoë Rubino as restaurant manager and Tim Goegan as head chef. The food is punchy in flavour and minimalist in approach, with more dishes destined to achieve the kind of cult status the lobster roll has. There are typhoon shelter prawns, pig’s head bao, char siu pork, and kakigori.
Accompanying these super-tasty Asian eats is a streamlined selection of wines by the glass, sake, cocktails, Japanese beers & soft drinks, curated by Wine Buyer, Leanne Altmann. Guests also have the option of selecting from our ‘trophy cabinet’ containing the good and the rare.
‘We want Supernormal Canteen to be a fun, approachable local, bursting with people,’ says McConnell. ‘The kind of place that is just as much loved for the good times as it is for the food and drink. Think izakaya style with a twist.’
Supernormal Canteen is open for dinner from 5.00pm to 11.00pm Monday to Sunday, and will be open for lunch on Fridays starting the 1st of September.

Peanut & sesame cookies
Makes 20 cookies
200 g (7 oz) butter, at room temperature
120 g (4½ oz) caster (superfine) sugar
120 g (4½ oz) brown sugar
200 g (7 oz) smooth peanut butter
320 g (11½ oz) plain (all-purpose) flour, sifted, plus extra for dusting
8 g (¼ oz) baking powder
40 g (1½ oz/¼ cup) sesame seeds
Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F) and line a baking tray with baking paper.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugars together. Add the peanut butter and mix well. Finally, add the flour and baking powder, stirring until just combined.
Put the sesame seeds on a plate or a sheet of baking paper.
Turn the cookie mixture out onto a work surface, roll it into a 4 cm (1½ in) diameter log and then roll it in the sesame seeds. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator to firm up.
Once firm, slice the dough into 5 mm (¼ in) discs. Place the cookies on the lined baking tray and bake for 12-14 minutes or until golden.
