Meat lover haven Fancy Hank’s has a new menu and boy is it a crowd pleaser. The reinvigorated menu of American-style slow-cooked barbecue is everything loyal followers have come to love and more.
An absolute must-have is the beef brisket with black pepper rub (using pasture-fed beef from Gippsland with a marble score 2+). Particularly noteworthy for its beefy flavours which have been enhanced by ample marinating before being smoked for hours. Simply stunning.
The pulled pork shoulder is similarly delicious and is made using free-range black Berkshire pigs from the western district of Victoria, barbecued to perfection with a paprika and brown sugar rub.
These substantial dishes from the smoker are accompanied by an irresistible list of small plates and starters, including hearty dishes such as the irresistible corn bread with jalapeno butter, hearty mac and cheese and Buffalo fried cauliflower boasting ethereally light batter, ranch and Hank’s hot sauce.
The new menu also ensures that sweet tooths are well taken care of. We think the playful Choctop is the perfect way to conclude your visit – chocolate, vanilla ice cream and nuts, it’s all the good things.
