ABC Restaurant Learning Your ABCs

[23/07/10] 

They say nostalgia is like a grammar lesson: You find the present tense, and the past perfect. And it’s understandable; as this world continues to career along at an unsustainable pace, quality continues to fall to the way side, replaced by convenience. Life is now plastic coated and vacuum sealed, leaving us only with memories of the times that were.

Fortunately the nostalgically-inclined can always plonk themselves down at a rickety table at the ABC Restaurant in the Queens Road Market’s cooked food centre, and reminisce over dishes straight out of the M on the Fringe cook book.

This restaurant stall – dressed in red and white checker cloths like a scene from 101 Dalmatians – was started by two former M disciples, and its award-winning cuisine lives on (to a fashion) among the food court’s Carlsberg beer girls and topless construction workers.

The set menu features M’s suckling pig, foie gras, rack of lamb and wine served from beer bucket coolers by attentive waiters, and the middle-of-the-road prices mean looking back will never be so kind on the wallet.

M for Memories.
