An hour lunch break simply isn’t enough for dining at a restaurant. This is where express lunches come in. They guarantee you will be in and out in a jiff when you feel like giving yourself a little treat without eating up more than the 45 minutes you have.
As far as express lunches go, the one offered by Meat & Wine Co is a bargain. For $25 you receive a delicious main and a glass of wine. In our experience, the food is consistently good. The following are our two favourite mains from the express lunch menu:
"Twice cooked pork belly with sticky soy caramel, served with crispy shallot rice, roasted peanuts and Asian salad dressed with kaffir lime and chilli dressing"
This is very well-prepared. The pork belly has a good crackling and the salad is balanced and fresh.
Eye of Rump
"200g Eye of Rump grilled to perfection in our in-house basting and served with super crunchy chips"
The steak is always perfectly cooked - juicy, tender and absolutely scrumptious. Their famous "super crunchy chips" are everything you would expect - Yes, super crunchy.
