Anyone familiar with philosophy would know that the Enlightenment was a period in history that saw the rebirth of reason in just about all areas of intellectual, social and cultural life. For those not so familiar with this 18th Century paradigm shift, you might think that the Enlightened Cuisine restaurant derives its name from its brightly lit appearance on a night out in Melbourne city.
Names and titles aside, the Enlightened Cuisine eatery is known for its Asian flavour, particularly sweet corn soup and classical roast duck. It also provides an unusual twist to our favourite desserts. Have you ever heard of fried ice cream or Shanghai pancakes before? Truly, this is the ideal place to go to satisfy your curiosity.
The lunch menu primarily consists of mild, moderate and hot curry dishes, so give this one a miss if you don't like curry and you're wandering around town during your lunchbreak.
