Review - Vic on the Park

In my ever-widening search for a pub with something different, I’m forced to admit I might have misjudged the humble slider.

This fast-paced yellow kitchen - clearly delineated with a suitably hipster font - produces four winning Sliders ($20/4) from a repertoire of six.

“Beef” ($6) with pickles, onion, cheese and French’s yellow mustard mayo is hard to beat; but by doubling up “Vego” ($6) with grilled haloumi and a zucchini fritter, plus mixed leaves and dill yogurt, it’s a vegetarian game-changer.

I even liked their brown-paper serving method that keeps ‘em separated; cuts down on mess, and allows you to two-hand them with crafty brews, like Pikes Oakbank Pilsner Lager ($8.50).

Additionally, the mainstays of this old-boozer turned local community hub have been updated rather than forgotten.

The Pie of the Week ($17), bearing duck, chicken and mushrooms wrapped with credible pastry and topped by intense gravy and mushy peas, makes a mighty meal.

However if you’re really starving, The Vic Roast ($26) with crisp-skinned pork belly, roast vegetables, greens and gentler apple’n’cider gravy, should curb even the fiercest of appetites.

A generous Sailor Jerry Jug ($22) made on fancy, organic StrangeLove ginger beer provides enough drinking fuel...

...to check out The Projects - their outdoor space offering seating, parking, graffiti and basketball!
