Serving up only the finest of quality, all the steaks at The [Meatery] are 150 day MSA Angus Beef sourced from Australia’s premium grazing regions, which means they are rich in flavour and tender in texture. If you are one for quality we recommend you try their premium 220g Eye Fillet from King Island, Tasmania. Sounds good but a little small for your rumbling stomach? If so, don’t hold back, go straight for it and order the 400g Rump Fillet from Darling Downs, Queensland; this slab will be sure to fill up the holes from skipping lunch. If you’re fancying something sweet after your meaty feast, pick from The [M]eatery’s fine selection of puddings which will impress even the toughest dessert connoisseur. If you’re one for chocolate, make sure the chocolate pudding is your pick; with a soft centred decadent middle served with warm chocolate fudge & vanilla ice cream, this dessert will be sure to leave you in a choccy coma.
