The Verdict

Casuarina has a new home for craft beer lovers and carnivores—aptly named The Crafty Cow. Located within The Commons precinct, here you’ll find meats slow-cooking onsite in a competition-quality meat smoker…yes, the saliva-inducing smells waft for blocks. Come for the Carnivore Platter with 12-hour wood smoked brisket, pulled pork and smoked cransky served with housemade slaw and beer-battered chips. Or, wrap your mouth around the finger-licking smoked brisket sandwich, BBQ sliders or wings with blue cheese. 

But your food expedition doesn’t end there! Casuarina’s new smokehouse also serves up moreish bar snacks to go alongside your craft beer—Balter, Black Hops, Stone & Wood, Young Henrys and more—like onion rings, generous cheese platters or prawn chicken nibbles. Just make sure you undo that top button when ordering the house-made peanut butter cheesecake to finish (or start, we won’t judge). There are also teasers for themed rib and chicken wing nights…we’re already drooling.
