Here in Elsternwick, Chef Ranbir Shergill presents Toddy, a café, bar and restaurant celebrating his Indian heritage. Chef Ranbir has anticipated opening Toddy for some time and takes his greatest hits from family secrets and past generations folding them together with the layers of his own travels and history. A place for conversations, contentment and sanctuary in an establishment that salutes family and friends and where the drinks are as important as the dining. A haven of hospitality and heritage where community and camaraderie is prevalent providing the foundation for his menu of old world meets new to ensure everyone is looked after.
Pull up at the Toddy bar for banter, kale crisps, smashed samosa and chicken tikka with cocktails to match the mood. Move through to mains where your dining style can be decided by guests at the table, or be guided by Chef’s recommendations such as Grandma Hilda’s Anglo, an Indian inspired Shepard’s Pie, the famous Old Delhi Style tandoori chicken, naan bursting with cheese and sesame crusted scallops. Something sweet also awaits those dining in or just dropping by with cinnamon soaked dumplings and rustic ice-cream accompanied by sweet wines or seasonal cocktails.
