It was a retro day out. Lunch at the American eatery South Side Diner followed by a visit to the Qld Art Gallery exhibition California Design (1930-1965). Timeless, modern classics were the order of the day. The Reuben Sandwich, The New York Skyscraper and Pulled Pork Sliders with Budweiser and Root Beer.
The Pulled Pork Slider with mustard coleslaw (two for $10.50) consisted of shredded roasted pork. I was expecting the mustard coleslaw to have more punch. It was crunchy and fresh and went well with the soft mini bun. Would have been terrific if served with a little bit of pork crackling (pig candy) on the side!
The diner also does several versions of Mac N Cheese (goats cheese, spring pea and spinach, truffled pecorino, caramelised onion and double smoked spec) all $14.50.
We didn’t indulge in sweet pie but they offer pumpkin with maple cream and roast pumpkin ice cream, apple with vanilla bean ice cream, cherry with cherry ice cream and chocolate peanut butter with vanilla bean ice cream and choc fudge sauce, all $14.50.
The staff were super friendly and the food was fresh and well presented. It’s a fun menu with all of the American classics. Great for a bite, before or after a show or exhibition and would also definitely make a casual, fun first date dinner!
