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.

Following my two breakfasts of a fried chicken sandwich and a cheeseburger I felt it only natural that my next stop was the Williamsburg shrine to bbq, Fette Sau.

Walking in you’re greeted with a very relaxed atmosphere; stacks of wood, picnic tables in the sun and as you move inside, family style tables and a mural of where the cuts come from in the wall. As you step in the smoked aroma takes over and taunts you as you line up for meats.

We were a group of 5 and planned to order an array, unfortunately the duck finished just as we approached the front.

We went with 3/4lb of brisket and ribs, 1/2 pulled pork and 1/4 of the lamb belly bacon. To round that out we ordered their potato salad, pickles and burnt end beans as sides. A well-balanced lunch if I don’t say so myself.

We waited for a couple of people to get drink but I was getting peckish and snuck a few pieces of the bacon and holy Jesus, It was amazing.
I moved onto the ribs and brisket when everyone came back and was equally as impressed, the brisket was fatty, moist and rubbed with just the right amount of seasoning.

The ribs came of the bone and went down a treat with their BBQ sauce. Next the pulled pork, I used the pickles and potato rolls we received to make myself a pulled pork sandwich and it was marvelous, the pork was flavourful but not overly mushy and their pickles gave a great crunch. The beans were on point, creamy, spicy and meaty; everything you could want. The only thing left on our tray was the potato salad. We all preferred a creamy one and this one was more the light vinegar style.

Fette Sau is worth the trek and lineup, the welcoming relaxed vibe really compliments the food making it an enjoyable place for lunch. And for God’s sake get the lamb belly bacon.
