From the outside. I’d forgotten what the old pub that was there before looked like… have definitely never ever walked in there before though.
Really inviting decor inside. Fake patina, but done really nicely.
The pig says it all.
The Caribbean theme is carried throughout the entire building. For drinks; Nanami went with the Paloma tequila cocktail. I had a glass of a robust red from Chile.
Couldn’t resist ordering the apple roasted pork neck riblets. They came with a special BBQ sauce in a medicine bottle, but the robs were so damn tasty they really didn’t need the (amazing) extra sauce. The flat bread was next level! I’d go back just for the bread!
Fish Tacos, the best both of us have ever had.
The 100yr old Macquarie Hotel on the corner of Goulburn Street and Wentworth Avenue in Surry Hills has reopened with a Caribbean makeover with chef, Paul Wilson (Icebergs, Bar de Thé and Salon de Thé), consulting on the menu with a Latin theme. Wood-smoked barbacoa, slow cooking Australian heritage and sustainable meats in Latin spices over aromatic woods.
Nanami and I checked it out today and we weren’t disappointed! The venue’s awesome, upstairs as well as downstairs. They’ve done a great job theming the interior, it’s so cool in there I’d want to hire it out for my 40th next year! The food was amazing and I can’t wait to go back and try everything else on the menu with a bigger group of friends.
