There’s something about winter and roasts, and the king of all roasts is pork, but, if we’re being honest, we’re only interested if it comes with a side of crackling.

Stuffed in banh mi, topping a roast, or sprinkled on sandwiches, pork crackling is enjoying a moment of the menus of Brisbane’s best restaurants, and we’re on board. 

Here’s our guide to finding the best pork crackling in Brisbane. Get cracking.

Gerard’s Bar

New Farm

Oh, happy days, Gerard’s Bar have a new bar menu, and the shining star is the pork belly open-face sandwich, slathered with garlic aioli, melting soft pork belly, white anchovies, and topped with crunchy pork crackling curls for good measure. 

The Servery

Woolloongabba

If you know your Brisbane restaurants you’ll be all too familiar with the delights of Pearl Café, but venture upstairs and you’ll find a whole new level of deliciousness in The Servery. 

With two private dining spaces, the roast room, and the kitchen bar, The Servery dishes up one of Brisbane best pork roasts, adorned with some of the crunchiest, melting, pork crackling of your life, in total privacy, should you want to make a pig of yourself (sorry, we can’t help it!).

e’cco Bistro

Brisbane CBD

If you’re squeamish, look away now, because e’cco are embracing a nose-to-tail philosophy, and decorating their roast pork belly with apple, artichoke, and black pudding with crispy pig’s ears. 

Aria

Brisbane CBD

Even Aria’s getting in on the pork crackling action, with a insanely good looking grilled sweet pork belly and crackling, with pear and currant chutney. 

Mrs Luu’s

Milton

No one knows how to crisp up a piece of pork like the Vietnamese, and crackling’s natural home is smushed within the confines of a crunchy baguette, snuggled up next to fresh herbs. Mrs Luu’s roasted pork belly banh mi is the stuff of lunch legends—we'd gladly trek across town when it’s the lunch special.
