Jardin Tan

friday Session

In 1859 FRANCE conquered Ho Chi Minh, the largest city of VIETNAM. Saigon would reign as the French capital of Cochin-China, and yet amid the upheaval of colonisation, there would emerge the first true, vibrant and delicious form of fusion cuisine. Set within the lush, green embrace of Melbourne's own colonial marvel, the ROYAL BOTANIC GARDENS, Jardin Tan explores the dynamic FLAVOURS OF FRENCH_INDOCHINA in a warm, welcoming space. Perfect for a bite with friends, a formal event, or a lingering lunch well-earned after a botanical ramble, the many spaces that Jardin Tan offers will delight. As the leaves change colour with the seasons, so too will the menu within, celebrating the organic, biodynamic produce grown onsite within the gardens, and at our sister operation Burnham Beeches. Jardin Tan represents the truest expression of our farm-to-table philosophy, where tradition meets innovation, and the very best of many cultures collide. Come, share the ADVENTURE...

Located at the former Observatory cafe in the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne, leading Australian chef and restaurateur Shannon Bennett and his team have rebranded as JARDIN TAN to give the free-flowing area filled with joggers, tourists and families the perfect respite from a walk around the gardens, a visit to the Shrine of Remembrance and more. From our front-of-house kiosk and BEER GARDEN out the back to the glorious inside eatery, our firm FRENCH/VIETNAMESE focus will delight. SUSTAINABILITY is key to Jardin Tan by keeping ingredients local with much of the produce grown in the KITCHEN GARDEN. Chefs have their own spin on bánh mì, pho, beef ribs, and dishes the likes of Phú Qu?c: Chili and lime MARK EATHER squid with pickled papaya, Su?n c?u: Flinders Island lamb ribs, Vietnamese spice rub, chili caramel to the Bánh xèo: Crispy pancake with pork and shrimp.
