Glenelg’s food and drinks gem, The Holdy, has launched its vibrant new menu just in time for summer!
Following new ownership from Star Hotels in July this year, The Holdy has undergone a bit of a makeover with superb new menus and fresh summer drinks, inspired by the area’s laidback, beachy vibe.
The new summer menu fuses pub grub favourites with international flavours to create a truly unique and tantalising culinary experience.
“We wanted to inject some character into the menu. It’s a fun and interesting celebration of all Australian cultures, it all comes together and sings on the plate!” says The Holdy Venue Manager, Jeff Owens.
Acclaimed Chef, Hayley Mass, is the driver behind The Holdy’s new direction and inspired menu. Hayley played an integral part in starting the Ellen St Restaurant at Maxwell Winery before opening Fuze Food & Wine to rave reviews. Having travelled, worked and eaten all over the world, Hayley brings a passion for flavour, experimentation and unique taste sensations to her role as Head Chef at The Holdy.
“The new menu is about taking risks and embracing diverse global tastes. Sharing a Holdy Tasting Plate and Thai Chilli Mussels with a crisp Sauvignon Blanc is the best way to start,” says Hayley.
“Head to the Mushroom & Haloumi Burger with sweet potato fries or the Crispy Skin Duck with broccolini, bok choy, maple roasted almonds & passionfruit jus for a sumptuous summer main. For dessert, we can’t go past the house-made Chu Chu Churros with milk chocolate sauce, enjoyed with live local music in the sunny Garden Bar,” says Hayley.
The Holdy’s latest food offerings also presents a welcome new surprise – the addition of a tasty brunch menu. With delicious crowd favourites like smashed avocado, Belgian waffles and smoked salmon eggs benedict, The Holdy is quickly becoming Adelaide’s favourite beach-side breakfast spot on the weekend.
A jack of all trades, The Holdy provides the perfect location for functions. The venue now incorporates a specific functions space, in addition to a number of indoor and outdoor areas to choose from, ensuring the perfect setting for any event.
Everything from conferences, birthdays and engagement parties can take place against the fresh, modern, edgy backdrop The Holdy’s new vibe provides.
With flavoursome food, ice cold cocktails, relaxed tunes and a cheeky crew, The Holdy is set to be Adelaide’s favourite watering hole this summer. So whether you’re looking for a big brekkie, a delicious dinner, a pitcher of Aperol Spritz or the perfect venue for your next special occasion, look no further than The Holdy.
