A New Year’s Eve Affair – Za Za Ta

31 December 2020

A New Year’s Eve Affair like no other. An event to sweep you off your feet. On Thursday 31st December join us in saying ‘Happy Shana Tova’ as we say goodbye to 2020 and welcome to 2021!

Gather and celebrate with friends in a place where worlds and cultures collide amongst a sprawling, colonial backdrop and buzzing open kitchen. Experience a soulful blend of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine that brings a distinctly modern twist to centuries-old flavours with dishes designed to be shared and savoured.

Dress in your New Year’s best and don’t miss out on feasting at one of two sittings; the first at 5:30pm and the second from 8pm until late. Upon arrival, relax with a glass of Veuve Clicquot before savouring a festive chef’s menu by Executive Chef Roy Ner.

Envelope your senses and see off 2020 in true culinary vegetarian style with dishes like Eggplant h’raime with yellow tomato gazpacho, tahini and spring bean salad (updated for summer), and Roy’s crowd favourite, Lentil & Mushroom Manti Dumplings with black garlic and kashkaval jus. Share and tear ZA ZA TA’s infamous Yemenite butter bread served with goat’s curd and zhug chili and finish off with a signature New Year’s Eve dessert, created exclusively for the event – all for only $99pp.

As a special gift, take home a jar of recipes and spices and re-create ZA ZA TA’s distinct Middle Eastern flavours in your kitchen in the New Year.

The party doesn’t stop after dinner. Kick up your heels and keep the all-night late-night adventure going in ZA ZA TA’s bar.  Open until 2am, liquid flavours will be flowing alongside fresh house beats. Continue the festivities with a menu of signature cocktails reminiscent of the famed markets of Tel Aviv & Jaffa, as well as forgotten classics and a new summer menu of refreshing spritz (available boozy or non-boozy using Seedlip non-alcoholic spirits).

Yalla! This will be an affair to remember.
