He Says, She Says

Open for just a few weeks on a bustling strip of Toorak Road, Camberwell, new café-restaurant-bar hybrid He Says, She Says is a breath of fresh air on the Camberwell dining scene.

Easily overlooked from the outside, venture further in and you’ll find a recently transformed industrial space, featuring an open kitchen, with large informal dining tables for groups, and more secluded nooks for a quieter dining experience.

The menu is classical modern Australian with a focus on high quality, fresh ingredients. Charismatic part owner and first time restaurateur Nasser Mashni admits to being shocked initially by the price of ‘the very best’ produce, but sampling their menu last Wednesday at the official launch, we can attest it’s definitely worth the investment.

Head Chef Michael Harrison, having worked previously under greats such as Ben Shewry, Raymond Capaldi and Gary Mehigan, presented guests with dishes such as snapper tartare with chive dressing and shaved foie gras, and a pork and pistachio terrine with a vibrant shallot jam to start.

Mains included a smoked, slow cooked Moroccan spiced lamb dish, served with yoghurt and a smashing tomato and lamb jus, all served with elegance and a smile. All dishes can be paired with wine from the extensive list, featuring a long list of Australian varieties and the occasional hand picked French or Spanish drop.

Desserts borrow from French classics, and might feature a milk chocolate mousse with orange caramel and meringue, or a simple crème brulee infused with lemon thyme. Definitely worth a look in and likely to become a main stay for Camberwell locals, He Says She Says is a noteworthy additional to the area.
