Fancy Some Eats with your Tipple?
Craft-beer bar Tippler’s Tap has found a new home at South Bank, bringing with it a vast rotating selection of tap and bottled beers, showcasing local and renowned breweries. And what goes well with beer? Chicago-inspired street food, that’s what. Pair your ale or lager with a Reuben sandwich on rye bread, packed full with thinly sliced corned beef, cider sauerkraut, melted Swiss cheese, pickle and Thousand Island dressing.
Satisfy your Street Food Urge with a Burg
Sometimes you get a hunger that can only be tamed by a hefty burger. Burger Urge is ready and willing to help you out, with its range of beef, chicken, lamb and vegetarian burgers and po’boy sandwiches. When the urge is really real choose The Big Boppa, stacked high with a free-range egg, pineapple, beetroot, red onion, melted American-style cheddar, tomato chutney, aioli and salad.
Wing It at Hop & Pickle
South Bank’s resident gastropub Hop & Pickle sure knows how to please palates. On the bar menu you’ll find the likes of cornflake chicken wings with Hop & Pickle’s signature hot sauce and ranch dressing, crispy beerbattered pickles with aioli and red pepper jam, or brisket and potato croquettes with spicy Korean barbecue sauce and aioli. Be sure to wash it down with an ice-cold brew, straight from the tap.
Say Guten Tag to a German Sausage at Pig and Kraut
The Simpsons taught us well – you don’t make friends with salad. What you do make friends with, however, is a delicious gourmet German sausage encased in a fresh bun topped with zesty sauerkraut and fried onions. If that’s enough to make you reject your boring lunch, head over to the Parklands’ semi-permanent pop-up, Pig and Kraut. Inspired by Manhattan’s bustling market scene, Pig and Kraut offers German sausages and freshly brewed iced tea from its alfresco space. The pop-up grills bratwurst and spicy knackwurst sourced from a local butcher, who smokes the all-natural sausages for up to one week to ensure a truly unique flavour. These are then placed inside a crusty bun, baked daily, and topped with your choice of sauerkraut and fried onions. You can then help yourself to the range of condiments including the chilli bar, which is brimming with every kind of chilli sauce imaginable.
Not Your Average Next Door Neighbour
Forget the next door neighbour that offers tea and biscuits when you stop by – we can do you one better. Next Door Kitchen and Bar on Little Stanley Street will serve you a crispy chicken burger on a brioche bun, gangster chicken wings with blue cheese sauce and chilli peanuts, or crispy fish tacos with lemon pepper aioli and chilli salsa. And even better? You’re welcome to drop in for a bite to eat whenever you please.
Take a Ride on the Manhattan Line
Anywhere that is dedicated to whisky, beer and street food is okay with us. The Manhattan Line may be small in size, but it definitely packs a punch when it comes to drinks and eats. Hot dogs are the stars of the menu, with choices including the Chicago Style with an all-beef frank, celery salt, caramelised onions, red peppers, American green relish and a pickle spear, or The Empire State –a beef frank topped with caramelised onions, crispy bacon, house fries, Manhattan ketchup, yellow mustard and cheddar cheese. Pair your dog with a serve of beer-battered onion rings with house-made aioli, or buffalo wings dipped in tangy blue cheese sauce. If you plan to make a night of it, be sure to try a cocktail on tap, or choose from The Manhattan Line’s craft beers, ciders and ever-growing whisky selection.
Fill your Belly at Harajuku Gyoza
Need a sumo-sized meal for your sumo-sized appetite? Settle in for a Japanese feast at Harajuku Gyoza. You can sink your chopsticks into juicy pork belly kakuni, crispy chicken karaage, tebasaki wings and a range of delicious pan-fried gyoza. Ice-cold Kirin beer waits to be poured fresh from the tap, or you can cheer ‘kampai!’ as you sip a glass of saké, umeshu or Suntory whisky.
Enjoy a Meal Fit for the Gods at Zeus
Greeks take their food pretty seriously, and Zeus is no exception. Eat like a Spartan and wrap your mitts around the Uncle Tzimmy Classic, with your choice of lamb, pork or chicken, wrapped in a soft pita with tomato, tzatziki, onion, paprika and chips. If you’re really hungry, add a side of chips topped with fetta cheese and oregano, or lightly fried calamari with preserved-lemon mayonnaise.
