PlayStation to Plate is a new initiative by Sony and partner restaurants to bring video game-themed food to both Melbourne and Sydney.
Sony has teamed up with Mary’s, Bistro Morgan and The Italian Bowl for three fantastic dishes that can be experienced in-restaurant or ordered online via Deliveroo.
“The last 18 months have truly highlighted the importance of play in our lives,” said PlayStation Australia’s Patrick Lagana. “The worlds of gaming and food have offered escapism and enjoyment for Aussies when we’ve needed it more than ever. So, it seems fitting that we have brought these two cultures together, merging some of the best games and best restaurants to create a whole new experience for foodies and players alike.”
Foodies in Melbourne and Sydney will be able to order the following from 3 December until 13 December.
Ellie’s Steak Sandwich by Mary’s
Inspired by The Last of Us Part 2, Ellie’s Steak Sandwich comes to us from Sydney burger joint Mary’s.
Mary’s co-founders Kenny Graham and Jake Smyth have faithfully recreated the dish that appeared near the beginning of Naughty Dog’s recent sequel.
“Food, much like gaming, has this incredible ability to offer people a chance to escape the mundane and connect with family, friends and even complete strangers,” said Kenny Graham. “The sandwich in The Last of Us Part 2 represents that connection and that’s what we’ve been about since we started: bringing people together for good times and good food.”
Sirangian Honey Mousse Restaurant by Bistro Morgan
Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart and its interdimensional worlds are the inspiration for this dish by Melbourne’s Bistro Morgan.
Morgan Hipworth’s bakery will recreate Chef Tulio’s Sirangian Honey Mousse with heart, soul and love.
“Food is an intrinsic part of Aussie culture, and there is no question that our relationship with it has grown deeply over the past couple of years,” said Morgan. “There are so many synergies with the gaming world: At the core, both have an innate ability to instantly transport you to another place or time, or hopefully in this case another dimension!”
Thief’s Pasta Restaurant by The Italian Bowl
Finally, classic Uncharted 4 A Thief’s End has inspired this dish by Sydney’s The Italian Bowl.
This dish is a recreation of simpler times experienced by Nate and Elena before our favourite adventurer is drawn back into the fold.
“Running a restaurant for over a decade, you see the power of food and its importance in Australian culture,” said Italian Bowl owner Alexi Spyridis. “It’s been eye-opening to learn how important digital dishes also play in the storytelling within games and how equally important they can be.”
