Naked for Satan
Time Out says
Gone are the pinxtos, in their place are mussels and fries
After eight years of serving little snacks on sticks, Naked for Satan has changed up their offering in the downstairs bar. Don't worry, you can still jump in the lift for sky-high wines, but back at ground level they've given their pinxtos the heave-ho and are adopting a more pan-European approach with the introduction of a mussels menu. Those bouncy bivalves come in five different sauces and are served with fries. They come in an ale sauce with garlic and thyme; one with leek sadron and creme fraiche; a spicy peper version; a creamy aniseed number; and the classic tomato and chorizo.
The Spanish influence is still there in the empanadas and tinned seafood. And you can also get oysters for $2.20 a pop, seasoned with lemon, cava jelly, finger lime or a kim chi vinaigrette. But if you need beef there are sliders with slow cooked beef cheek, plus a fried chicken edition and one with mushroom and haloumi for the hordes of Melburnians living that plant-based lifestyle.
