“Fine food without fuss” is the motto at Yagiz in South Yarra and it’s the type of concept Melbourne locals have come to love. This contemporary eatery serves modern Turkish cuisine with both artisan originality and traditional approaches, this thanks to the flair of chef patron Murat Ovaz. Passionate about creating food that brings people together, Ovaz has crafted a seasonal menu where Middle Eastern flavours and ingredients drive the dishes. Guests can expect creativity like sardine meatballs with saffron yoghurt, burnt pepper calamari and seared duck sticky bulgar pilaf. The interesting wine list is also worth mentioning, curated by award-winning sommelier Christian Maier to feature Turkish wines alongside varieties from Europe and Australasia. With a chic dining space on Toorak Road and all-round welcoming hospitality, Yagiz offers a meal to remember in the heart of South Yarra. Advance reservations are essential.
