Room for Thought

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

The pop up 'Drummer Restaurant' is open this week Wednesday till Friday at 72 Erskine St, Sydney


The restaurant is part of the American Express funded Room for Thought project which through a facebook based competition provided an opportunity for people to realise their dreams across the genres of music, fashion & community. The winner of the community section Elle Formica had the idea to create the ‘Drummer Restaurant’ and raise  awareness of refugee issues through a more personal encounter. With the help of mentor Miranda Otto the restaurant has come to life.

The upper level has a Burmese theme & menu whilst the street level room has a Sudanese inspired menu which includes spicy goat stew with black eye beans, spiced orange syrup and pistachio cakes. During Breakfast 7.00-10.00am, Lunch 12noon-3.00pm & Dinner 6.00-9.00pm the Drum Beats musicians are adding the spice with African rhythms & dance.
