We all love a bit of rock-solid pub grub. From steak night, through to the staple parma order—there’s a big of something for everyone on the bistro menu.
It’s hard enough when choosing what is the best pub meal for you on any particular day, let alone trying to work out what the best pub meals in all of Australia are, but that’s a challenge the Yak Brewing team recently took on. Following an extensive public voting phase, the Yak Brewing team—along with comedian Harley Breen—and a panel of judges have found the best pub meals in the country, and soon they’ll be on show in Melbourne.
Five winners were chosen in different categories:
- Best Chicken Parma | The Birmingham Hotel, Fitzroy, Victoria
- Best Steak | The Royal Hotel Queanbeyan, Queanbeyan, ACT
- Best Burger | The Henson, Marrickville, New South Wales
- Best Fish & Chips | Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel, Watsons Bay, New South Wales
- Best Pork Ribs | The Pier Bar, Cairns, Queensland
To showcase the best that Australia’s pubs have to offer, a pop-up called ‘The Hungry Yak’ will take over Melbourne’s Riverland Bar from Wednesday 30 October through to Wednesday 6 November where the five best pub meals from around the country will all be under one roof.
“Over the past few weeks, I’ve had the honour of travelling across Australia to judge Australia’s favourite pub meals. I’ve met some amazing characters along the way and tasted the best pub dishes our nation has to offer. The final decision was not an easy one, but I’m confident we’ve unearthed the very best of the best. We’ve had an amazing response from the public and are delighted we promoted so many fantastic pubs and meals.” said Breen.
Definitely one you won’t want to miss.
