Review - Ribs & Burgers Neutral Bay

Confession time: I find butchers, butchers’ aprons, Berkel meat slicers and sharp knives rather exciting.

However it was still disconcerting to find out my dining companion had a Hungarian butcher doppelganger - a brother-from-another-mother - whose image loomed over our table.

Just in case the photos...

...wall of meat grinders, and jar-enclosed lights didn’t give it away, this is a light-hearted space that’s meant to summon butchers’ shops of old.

While you won’t find sawdust on the floor (or get handed a stick of cabanossi), their open-style kitchen does dish up a mean burger and a great rack of ribs.

Their signature Wagyu Burger ($18) comes piled high with onion rings, salad, dill pickles and both pink and BBQ sauces.

With a James Squire The Chancer Golden Ale ($7) and some of their ‘famous’ Chips ($4/small) it’s all you really need for a fast casual bite.

Pork Ribs ($29) are marinated then slow cooked for eight hours, coming with chips and coleslaw.

They’re messy but compelling (the serve is slightly small) and a Kirin ($7) will cut against them nicely. Think of it not as fast food, but as good food served quickly, in a setting you won’t feel out of place - even wearing thongs on the way back from Balmoral Beach.

I tried the Lamb burger at Eastgardens on the weekend and it was dry and really disappointing given it's price tag. Perhaps it was a one off "miss" but it really was overdone, pretty tasteless piece of meat.
The condiments and sides were good though.

Ah the new Eastgardens store that just opened... haven't been there yet. The burger I had was juicy and well handled.
