My Sabor the last piece of the culinary puzzle for Verity Lane Market

Posted on

This Thursday 22 April will see the last piece of the culinary puzzle fall into place at Verity Lane Market when Mod Oz pop-up kitchen My Sabor opens.

Pronounced  [sav-or], Sabor means ‘flavour’ in Portugese, paying homage to the heritage of creator Daniel Mark, former Head Chef of Lanterne Rooms, part of the renowned Chairman Group. The pop-up will bring a Modern Australian menu—with an Asian twist—to Verity Lane.

“My heritage is Asian Portuguese, Indian and Chinese, and I was born and bred in Malaysia,” says Daniel.

“I didn’t want to be tied to one particular cuisine. Modern Australian cuisine combines elements from worldwide cultures, so you can say that there is no limit to what dishes I can create,” he explains.

The everchanging menu will be presented as a range of tapas-style share plates, and will include Truffle Oil Egg Custard with XO, Steamed Half Shell Scallops with Ginger & Scallion Risotto, Charred Octopus with Asian Summer Herbs Gremolata & Radicchio.

But Daniel says his favourite dish is the Indo Dry Spiced Rub Chicken with Mash.

“Who doesn’t love a good mash? But also, the chicken will be served with bones and I like munching on bones. I was born in the Chinese Zodiac’s year of the dog, so it’s very fitting for me,” says Daniel.

Daniel Mark’s experience dates back to when he was 19 years old working as a cook in a Mexican Restaurant in Malaysia. He then worked at the 5-star Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Kuala Lumpur for four years, Stella Blu Restaurant in Sydney, then as the Head Chef of the iconic Lanterne Rooms for 10 years.

“The opportunity for a kitchen at Verity Lane Market arose through my friend Gerald Ong who ran his fantastic pop-up Project Enoki there for five months,” says Mr Mark.

“Verity Lane gives me the chance to test the waters and gain experience running a small business and kitchen. It caters to such a diverse crowd and is a fun and active environment,” he says.
