Peel Street – an Adelaide favourite for small bars, classy cocktails and delectable dining, has recently seen the addition of Sestra, a Serbian/Mediterranean influenced restaurant.
If the word combination ‘Serbian’ and ‘Peel Street’ rings a bell, the bells don’t lie. Sestra is owned by the same family as neighbouring Serbian restaurant, Kaffana.
Sestra owner, Predrag Vujic says the Vujic family all contribute to the restaurant, and you can even (sometimes) catch a glimpse of ‘Mama Vujic’ pickling the lemons by the window of the shop. So you can be sure to expect “authentic and honest”, home-made meals. However, Predrag assures us that Sestra’s new chef and staff also bring their own unique swing to the restaurant.
Although Sestra will be embracing the Vujic’s Serbian heritage, they aim to encompass the many diverse flavours of Mediterranean cuisine including; Moroccan, Turkish, Greek, Italian and Spanish, and are focusing on sourcing local, fresh produce.
Speaking of delicious food, here’s a sneak peak of their saffron chicken, slow cooked in a tagine with preserved lemon.
And just in case you’re wondering – yes, they do indeed have a liquor license and will be making full use of it by launching an exciting cocktail and wine list that plays well with the food, we’re told.
Predrag said the venue suits all occasions, whether you’re on a date, out for family dinner, or knock off drinks with work mates.
Predrag says “I hope Sestra adds an exciting addition to the already bustling Peel Street, and brings even more culture and flavour to the vibrant mix. And that our honest food and genuine hospitality brings people together and is a catalyst for warmth and togetherness.”
We hope so too, Predrag, we hope so too.
