Amie Barbeler stroked her love of all things deep-fried this week...
Hearts might have sunk when news spread that the old KB Hotel was getting an American-themed refit, but the place has never looked better. While it’s still a no-nonsense inner city pub, the place now has a warm, southern feel to it, complete with cowboy-themed wallpaper, furry panels, beast heads and a random photo of Dolly Parton thrown in for good measure. Most excitingly though, the bar boasts one of Sydney’s largest collections of bourbon (over 30 types) and a rotating selection of 33 taps of craft beer.
Keg & Brew
In true American style, the meals are hefty and heart stopping (read: delicious). My date and I hooked into a ten buck bowl of deep fried bacon (aka Big Tex Bacon Bites) before sharing a combo I’ve dubbed the Twhiskey: deep fried Twinkies with chocolate fondue ($10), washed down with some Campfire Bourye Whiskey ($15.50). If it’s beer, bourbon and bites you’re after… you’ll find ‘em in abundance here.
