Hot Pho and good times at Light Years

Winter is upon us, and Light Years restaurant and cocktail bar are now opening their doors from 5pm every night. What better way to spend these chilly evenings than with a hot steaming bowl of Pho on their heated tropical patio, or perhaps one of their hearty curries? Kim Stephen from Light Years says that popular choices include the mildly spiced beef rendang with coconut and lemongrass slow-braised beef cheeks, or their famous turmeric and coconut fish curry – also available with eggplant for Light Years’ vegan friends!

New to the menu and already proving to be a hit is the 5-spice duck-breast pancakes. Served with pickled cabbage, cucumber and hoisin, you can try it with some pan-fried oyster mushrooms for a delicious vegan alternative. All up there are thirteen vegan dishes on the menu, and the majority of the food is gluten free. Round up your friends and join the fun Light Years crew for their new happy hour: all signature cocktails are just $12 from 5pm till 6pm every night.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
