2020 People's Choice Award - Inspired by Laksa
Berry Springs Tavern is 40 minutes from Darwin CBD and is a much-loved, country style pub. In 2020, the Tavern submitted their first entries into the Darwin Laksa Festival; a laksa schnitzel and laksa-inspired martini.
Joe, the Head Chef and brains behind the laksa schnitty had no idea how popular the dish would be, with with the Tavern inundated by people wanting to try it. Featuring a chicken breast marinated in laksa paste and then coated in coconut, panko and kaffir lime crumb with a side of laksa butter - the meal is out of this world tasty.
When we announced Berry Springs Tavern as the winner's of the People's Choice Award for Best Inspired-By dish, there were almighty cheers from the audience. In true outback pub fashion, a beer was drank from the laksa bowl trophy.
