Supernormal Canteen - Now 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.
Supernormal will be open from 12pm until late on the Queen's birthday, Monday 12th of June.
Supernormal Canteen Returns
In the summer of 2013/14 Andrew McConnell launched the fun-times test kitchen, Supernormal Canteen. The loud and lively eatery was the free-wheeling precursor to Supernormal, and this July, we're it bringing it back.
Opening in St Kilda in the former home of Luxembourg, this is Supernormal Tokyo-style: faster, livelier and louder.
Free-flowing Asahi and a smoking yakitori grill from the central bar will inform a playful menu of new dishes.
Seasoned Supernormal veterans will run the show with Zoë Rubino as restaurant manager, Leanne Altman as wine buyer and Tim Goegan as head chef.
This is Supernormal - but not as you know it.
