Owned by Shanghai boss and chef from Guangzhou. They changed the taste to suit to Australia. I would only advise if you really miss Chinese food.

Esp after we saw the price. $9 for a bowl of pho, $6 for the roasted duck bahn mi. Life can’t be any better. After spending ten and ten of dollars on meals, this is really God sent. The taste was not neglected. Because of the cold weather, we couldnt skip the bowl of pho. Warm clear broth with generous amount of beef. If any Vietnamese see this post, please start making the roasted duck bahn mi. The caramelized shallot brought the savory and sweet together. 😋😋😋

First thing first, this is Texas BBQ, not the fast and furious BBQ. .
.
This place is truly a hidden Gem. Beautiful char ring on the brisket was the result of the long and painful hours poured into smoking process. Everything from their mustard sauce to the pickles were made in house. .
.
3 meat platter costed $45 - Brisket, pull pork and Sausage. All were incredibly tasty, esp the sausage. The hint of smokiness with spicy punch set it apart from all the other sausage we had in Australia. Some might find that their pricing was a little steep. The reason was because they use the smoking method. The meat was smoked under a low temperature for a very very long hours which ensure all the juice kept in the meat. Not only we paid for the meat, the price involved the craftsmanship of the pit master - Sethro. Turning the meat at the right moment took years of experience. .
.
The work started at 3 in the morning. Started the prep, seasoned the meat and fired up the smoker. .
.
I highly encourage anyone going the Great Ocean Road. Drop by this place and prepare for a hearty meal. With more people visiting this place, the food would only get better. O yes, please try their cheese cake too.

Their pricing wasn’t exactly very cheap but many visited for their frame. Even though many locals had not been there for years, as some prices were marked up by 50%. However, I do encourage you to give it a try. If there are many tourists crowded to one stall or interviewed by some tourist magazine, it had a high chance that it might fail you. But I highly recommend to try the bagel!!! It is from “Stand by me”. CHEWY bagel and savory cream. You must try their different combination.

Sourced locally and infused with imagination. With Autumn fully kicked in, the the dishes were surrounded with the idea “earth”. Every dish was cooked till perfection. Technical and execution were at the top tier. No pretentious dish. .
.
However, I failed to see how this place is the top 50 in the world. Mostly was due to the lack of background stories in every dish. We could easily read the name of the dish and image the taste. Maybe we gave too little credit to the crew of the effort they spent to source for every ingredient. .
.
Example: The way they presented the flathead. Maybe it was impressive to some whom they seldom fish served as a whole. But for us, Asian, it is just that. Mushroom butter with lemon or wine sauce on the side but failed to improve the flavor of the fish. My version would be the butter, soy sauce malt beer and lemon. It would taste MUCH better. .

Served simple and classic “cafe” food but at a very reasonable price. Their scone was fluffy and a little savory. Cream and jam were their best friend. If you ever go to the Bay of Fire, you must check out this place.

Golden delicious sprayed with vinegar. Even my mom who don’t eat fried stuff, said that it was GOOD. The prefect fried sotong was the testimonial of the chef’s skill. To our surprise they used different type of fillet to mixed up the flavors.

Incredible island to travel. 3 hours from end to end. Sampled multiple food stalls. I highly recommended the oyster, honey ice cream and cheese stalls. .
.
Large oyster from Get Shucked, Cheese from beer and cheese and honey ice cream Bruny Island honey. .
.
I find their cheese and beer owner was very smart. Bread, Beer and cheese? The bread and beer shared the malt. The cheese wash was reused into the beer. 🤔🤔🤔

If you are not afraid of the fishy taste, I highly recommend the umi. $11 for the taste of the sea. Fried octopus was crazily good. Soft texture but it was a little over seasoned.

For every Wednesday night, Queen Victoria Market would transformed into a magical night market packed with food according to the monthly theme. .
.
Maybe the meat in Australia was really good. Their roasted was tender and well seasoned. Named the best pizza in town.
.
.
To avoid long Q, go as early as 5pm, you would have the space and time to decide on what to eat.
