The restaurant was born out of a family cattle business that prided itself on producing the highest quality beef. Simmer Kahlon’s menu continues this dedication to meat, with his meatball-focused dishes utilising only the best pork, fish, beef and chicken. A popular lunchtime venue, The Meatball & Wine Bar is cosy and energetic. Soft lighting casts a warm glow across the weathered brick walls of this long and narrow venue, while the chat of happy diners fills the air.
What’s on offer here is hearty, uncomplicated food using the finest ingredients sourced from carefully selected producers. Pork and fennel meatballs are a standout thanks to the robust flavours of fennel and sage. Pair them with a creamy parmesan sauce and smashed potatoes for an indulgent treat. A fabulous side is the four large grilled mushrooms, which are soft with a slightly crisped edge. Liberally topped with thyme, garlic and rich taleggio, the flavoursome mushrooms are simple but addictive.
