Ribs and burgers is an extremely large chain these days, I remember when the one in Northcote was the only one in area and it was all the rage.These days it seems like every suburb has one, south Morang being one of these places, I hustled up my parents for a quick lunch and headed over to give it a go.

After a bit of deliberation we all settled on a variety of dishes to share, the dino pork ribs, beef ribs and the wagyu tower burger.
The burger was the first dish out, it was quite picturesque and as I remembered it from the last time I went and someone had ordered it.
Just after that the ribs arrived and it all looked great, a good amount of colour and glaze with just the right amount of charring.


We dug in, I started with the pork ribs; cooked to a near fall off the bone with a decent amount of flavour, they were a satisfactory morsel, my only complaint was the dino cut, they were far too lean and had little meat on them.


I followed with a bit of the burger, it did not taste as good at it looked, the patty was dry and unfortunately overcooked and the seasoning along with the condiments did not have any impact on the burger, overall, slightly disappointing.


Lastly the beef ribs, while I’m not a huge fan of beef ribs because of the lack of care taken with preparing them, I was pleasantly surprised at how good they were, served with chips, they had a great tenderness with a liberal coating of sauce and the perfect amount of charring.

Overall, while nothing to rave about, Ribs and burger is a good local for satisfactory eats and something that won’t leave you regretting your food choices.

Last month through some miracle I finally won something, and lord and behold it was a serving of these ribs from Oh My Lard. It was meant to be, and one Saturday I journeyed there to get these delicious things.

Unfortunately my timing was all sorts of wrong and they’d sold out, this led to me trying their slow cooked pork knuckle. They roasted it for 16 hours then finished it in the deep fryer and smothered it with a Thai sweet chilli sauce.
Along with that hunk of meat was one of the best potato salads I’ve ever had to which I’ve since learned the recipe but can’t divulge the glorious secret.

On my second visit they were out again. I don’t know how but it’s like the universe didn’t want me to get those ribs.
This time round I had a serve of their fried chicken with slaw. Now if you know me I love fried chicken and I’ve done the leg work to know my shit, this was some of the best chicken I’ve had in a while; up there with the best in the city. Crispy, juicy and super flavorful, I implore you to get the sauce on the side to really enjoy the experience.

I went back a third time to try my luck and wouldn’t you know third time lucky is a thing.

I got a half rack smoked, grilled and glazed in their secret glaze. I was speechless, the smokiness was great and that glaze, I would bathe in it, FYI also goes great on their smoked corn, another must get.

Oh My Lard is putting out some great no nonsense eats with a really relaxed vibe.
