Third Wave

Prahran, Melbourne

I love american food/bbq and I heard that this place was really good. Tracked it all the way here after an AFL game. The place was pretty neat, simple setup with white chairs. One thing I noticed as soon as we walked in the restaurant was the smell… hmmmm smoked american bbq meat smell. So good!

It wasn’t packed at all, I think it is because we came quite early. There weren’t too many tables either. Anyways to the food! I ordered the pork ribs, mac and cheese and kipfler potatoes.

When the food came out it looked so good! However the taste, I have to say I was disappointed. The pork ribs were ….different… it wasn’t juicy nor saucey nor tender… it was dry…. really dry.. that is because that’s the style of cooking the chef made for this specific dish. Unfortunately for me it was a miss. The mac n cheese was nothing special, it was more chewy and plasticy, no flavouring at all,  the potatoes too were just plain  nothing special. Real gutted as I heard so many good things about this place.

Maybe I just picked the wrong dishes… I saw the burgers on the other hand and man they look amazing. When I get back down to Melbourne I will definitely try the burgers!
