$10 from every sale goes straight to A1 Canteen.

A world-beating omelette paired with ginger rice, a steak sandwich dripping with fermented-chilli gravy, a simple salad lifted with curry vinaigrette, a black sesame affogato to cool things down.

Clayton Wells closed A1 Canteen in 2020, and with it we said goodbye to a roster of breakfast and lunch dishes that the city called their favourites. With this journal, we pay tribute to an inner-city icon with some of their all-time hits, with $10 from every sale going to their sister restaurant, Automata. 

The A1 recipe cards start with their revered crab and XO omelette, move to a decadent steak sandwich, throw in a salad for freshness and end with an affogato made different.

The A1 Canteen x CARTILAGE recipe journal includes:
  • Blue Swimmer Crab & XO Omelette with Ginger Rice
  • Wagyu Hanger Steak Sandwich, Salad Cream, Fermented Chilli Gravy
  • Little Gem Salad, Egg Mayo, Curry Vinaigrette & Herbs
  • BONUS Vanilla Bean Ice-Cream, Black Sesame & Espresso
  • Recipe, sketches and annotations from chef Clayton Wells
