Cold Pie, Hot Place!
Fill the awkward dinner silences by talking about the eclectic surroundings at this hip Redfern diner, which has much more to offer than tacky, but intriguing, decorations like bull’s horns, lucky cats and voodoo masks.
This one of a kind diner doesn’t just please the eyes, it also satisfies the stomach, with an extensive list of mostly South American inspired dishes to choose from.
The dinner menu is where it’s at, with many hearty dishes like lamb stew, southern fried Spatchcock and corned beef. The lunch menu has some lighter options like sandwiches but if you want something different to match the environment, go for the pork pie with homestyle Branston pickle.
The waitress may warn you that this English pie is served cold – a useful head’s up for the typical Australian like me who is more familiar with pies served hot and dripping with tomato sauce.
If the pie is not your thing, why not skip the savoury food, and head straight to something sweet like Churros with warm spiced chocolate ganache and blood orange?
When you visit this diner, expect the unexpected when it comes to the décor, and then take the bull by the horns when choosing what to eat and drink!
