ZanziBar Newtown: Tapas, Newtown (4 September 2009)

323 King Street, Newtown NSW 2042

Nice rooftop

On a nice night you can really enjoy the renovated rooftop at Zanzibar Newtown like a few other pubs offer around Newtown including the Bank Hotel and Coopers Hotel. It has a reasonably priced bistro menu including tapas which include vegetable plates ($7), meat plates ($8) and seafood plates ($9). Tonight I order the Prawn Spaghetti (pictured) which has decent sized prawns and quite a kick of garlic which is good for me but not for others. Nice ambient lighing to be found on the Level 1 bar and downstairs seems to be a bit more grungy.

Prawn Spaghetti with garlic, chili, tomato, white wine sauce $14.90

Char grilled 250g scotch fillet with Spanish style beans, stuffed tomato and beef jus $17.90

Tapas mixed stand $38 (Chef's selection: 2 x vegetable, 2 x meat, 2 x seafood)

Rooftop courtyard
