Turmeric Beer Battered Barramundi at The Sunburnt Calf
The preternaturally cheerful Australasian bar and restaurant, the Sunburnt Calf, knows how to get the good times a’rolling. Namely, by greetings guests at the door with a stiff shot of Moo Juice, and keeping them loose by any means necessary after that. Beer sneaks its way into a number of dishes (although pity about the alcohol being cooked out). Still, it adds welcome body and depth of flavor to a crock of beer steamed whole prawns with garlic and lemongrass, and makes a perfect batter for the barramundi with dill over vermicelli noodles — a play on the iconic Vietnamese dish, Cha Ca La Vong.
