Intro: Meat craving ...

Intro:Meat craving resolved with a bib

Details: 474 St Kilda Rd, Melbourne 3004 Telephone 9866 1681

Surroundings: Formal but can dine in casual clothes. Great for a date or dinner with friends. Definitely a place to share dishes around the table. I’ve been back a few times over the years. Dimly lit, communal tables available, windows overlooking the buzzing St Kilda Rd.

Liquid consumption: Whiskey Sour-  Bourbon, Lemon Juice, Egg White, Sugar Syrup, Bitters. This goes well with the meat you will soon devour.

Entree: Our World Famous Onion Rings - these huge sized battered rings are dangerously good for the taste buds, bad for the arteries.  Deep-Fried Squid – be careful not to gobble these down too quickly, its like molten lava on the inside. Aside from this, the 5 spice salt adds an extra kick and the squid was not too chewy.

Main: Ready and armed with a bib, to share, we would always order two dishes- the Rib and Chicken Marriage and Tournedos and Ribs. Why? It’s the best of both worlds. The ribs are great- tender, juicy, not overley drowned in BBQ sauce like other joints. Served with dipping sauce if you feel the need to get a little messy and devour each piece, a salad which is generally ignored and a baked potato nestled among sour cream and cheese. The generously sized chicken wings are equally as  juicy coated in sweet smokey marinade and char grilled crispy bits.

My friends and I usually go into silent mode throughout the caveman like experience, talking to each other in code and giving off occasional wide grins fending each other off for the last remaining pieces. It’s mine!!


Dessert: no room

Bring a date here? Yes, call to reserve though.

Service: Service is reasonable, polite.

$$$: 70
