Meaty Menus for this winter....

Brisbane's Meatiest Menus title=Brisbane's Meatiest Menus

The mornings are dark and the afternoons have melted into night... Yes, winter has settled upon my pigpen once again. The change of season has me donning ugg boots on my trotters and brought on a very unfortunate sniffily snout. But, as this little piggy gets colder, my other friends are hotter!

Restaurants around town are embracing my barnyard friends this chilly season, and why wouldn’t they? We are all so delicious!


Brisbane diners are getting some mighty good pork on their forks at Popolo. This South Bank haunt is offering a plate of plumb pig, served with spiced peach compote and anchovy sauce. So, sit back and listen to the sizzling of the suckling pig, while enjoying the views of the river and cityscape.

Libertine is saluting the pig Asian-style; with their new lunch street-food menu, you can pig out on an organic pork ball baguette and Berkshire pork belly steamed bums.

If your socks and beanie aren’t doing the trick, you can snuggle up by the fireplace at The Lark and enjoy a good old-fashioned Sunday roast. With the menu changing week to week, the chef will be roasting either duck, pork, beef, chicken or lamb from 12:30pm onwards.

Byblos are dishing up some belly-warming Lebanese comfort food this winter. I suggest trying the Moghrabieh – warmed couscous and chickpeas slow-cooked and topped with a lamb shank, chicken and traditional onion gravy. Oink!
