The ninth iteration of a hugely popular restaurant series, The Meat & Wine Co, has opened in Adelaide and visitors are flocking.
Glam Adelaide dined at the new Currie Street location on a bustling Friday night where a plethora of faces filled seats and aromatic dish after aromatic dish was transported around the venue.
The menu focal point is an AGED program where the beef is aged in specialised dry ageing fridges. The meat will stay on a salt block for a minimum of four weeks.
The Monte Beef that the restaurant supplies is designed with a paddock to plate ethos which translates in the taste. The beef is top grade and cooked to perfection.
Unencumbered by accessories, when ordering steak at the Meat & Wine Co, the meat is the piece de resistance. The sides of salad and chips act as palate cleansers in between each delectable morsel.
To get the full experience, take advantage of their knowledgeable and dedicated staff by asking their wine recommendations. Whilst the wine list focuses particularly on South Australian wine, there’s a dedicated South African wine collection, and some interesting varietals from around the country.
It’s not just the delicious Monte Beef on the menu, with seafood dominating the entrees. If the idea of raw scallops doesn’t put you off, order the Scallop Crudo as a starter. Light, salty, and a hint of chilli will burst in your mouth.
For a heftier starter, the Portuguese Prawns will leave you well fed. On a bed of barley and with splashes of tomato and coriander salsa, this entree is a perfect balance of flavours; spicy, fresh, and aromatic.
You’d be remiss to not order some dessert to close the experience. The Crème Brûlée has our tick of approval (as does everything else we tasted); sweet and rich without being overpowering.
Book in early to get a table, the Meat & Wine Co has been proving exceedingly popular with Adelaide crowds.
