Introducing Merenda at Soumah.

An Italian Tradition.

If you were raised in a traditional Italian family — or had the great fortune to be raised in the region, you may be familiar with the term ‘Merenda’. As a child, it may have been as simple as bread and butter with a sprinkle of sugar, or as extravagant as a bowl of homemade gnocchi with fresh tomato sauce prepared by your Nona. The Italian term ‘Merenda’ refers to an afternoon snack or ‘the thing one deserves’ and is intended to fill the gap between lunch and dinner. Typically an after-school ritual for the young in Italy, Merenda at Soumah is for grown-ups!

Merenda at Soumah.

Join us for a spread of sweet and savoury bites to be shared, accompanied by a glass of Italian Prosecco or our slightly sweet Brachetto Frizzante. The dishes may vary slightly depending on produce availability but the table is likely to be filled with a house-made duck terrain, cured meats, creamy burrata, crusty bread, freshly filled mini cannoli, decadent tiramisu — and perhaps, Chef Paul will surprise you with something like chocolate salami!

Merenda is the perfect way to round off a day of winery hopping in the Yarra Valley. We invite you to sit back, relax and indulge while you take in the spectacular views. Because you deserve this!
