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.
