The Stables Craft Bar & Kitchen | 121 Racecourse Road, ASCOT QLD 4007

I have an announcement to make: we’ve moved to a new neighbourhood! As much as I loved the lifestyle of living in the CBD, we simply ran out of space with the arrival of Minibun George. Since our move, every Friday night the other travel bunnie and I go out to check out the dining scene along Racecourse Road.

A few weeks ago we stumbled upon The Stables Craft Bar & Kitchen, a cosy space with simple décor that serves a range of local craft beers and perfect sharing plates of tasty morsels. Sticking to the horse racing theme, black and white photos relating to the subject can be found scattered around as decorations. Intimate two-seaters with high chairs line the brick wall that extends all the way to the back of the establishment.

Dinner on the night in question was a fun, casual affair. We initially only wanted to order a couple of dishes to nibble on, but as we were taken by the tastiness of the Wagyu beef sliders w’ bacon, Swiss cheese, and caramelised onion ($16 for 3) as well as the Szechuan peppered squid w’ Asian coleslaw and nam jim ($14), we decided to order just a few more. I loved the fact that the brioche buns for the sliders had a sticky, sweet surface. They were humble sliders, and by that, I mean there were no fany-schmancy ingredients in between the layers other than honest, meaty, delicious bites. In comparison, I thought the southern style fried chicken wings w’ fresh watermelon salad ($14) didn't live up to my expectoration. My personal favourite of the night was the Hog 3 Bourbon glazed pork belly paddle pops w’ peppered sour cream and chives ($12). At $12, this dish is practically a steal. Skewed onto a stick (thus the name, paddle pop), the pork belly was juicy, chewy and crispy at the same time, not to mention that the meat glided down very easy with the thick sour cream and chives combo. It is definitely a must try dish.

It’s only been a short few months and I’ve already found a little gem in my neighbourhood. Gotta love that!

Giddy up, guys!

Total Bunnie Dollars Spent: $102
