Time Out says
Shane Delia has a fresh venture in Melbourne's South East
Shane Delia, the man behind Middle Eastern powerhouse Maha, the winner of the Time Out Melbourne Food Awards People's Choice gong, is opening his next venture in Windsor. Rather than replicating his Bond Street restaurant, Maha East is set to take some more casual cues, while still delivering the favourites that put the OG Maha on the map. To this end, head chef Simon Lillico will be frying up Turkish delight doughnuts and slow roasting lamb shoulder, while also dreaming up new dishes like taramasalata filled buns and his very own Persian XO sauce. Cocktails focus on the fruits and spices central to Middle Eastern cuisine, so expect pomegranate Sours alongside a 120-strong wine list.
