Hey meat heads! Try these carnivorous creations
This is a unique dining experience in Darwin that can be an intimate dinner destination or the ideal spot for a birthday lunch. Char Restaurant is renowned for consecutively serving up quality meat because their restauranteur is a nationally recognised beef judge. He is known for showcasing beef to the hospitality industry and is well equipped with all the knowledge about the right breed, feed type and age of the carcass. This passion is naturally reflected on the Char Restaurant menu so meat lovers put this on your list of places to dine in Darwin. Order an eye fillet, a T-Bone or a Ranger’s Valley rib fillet that has been grain fed for 300 days. Accompany these awesome steaks with potato mash and truffle oil or onion rings with smokey BBQ sauce. A popular choice is the Wagyu rump cap that is aged between 36-42 months and carries the reputation of being one of Australia’s most luxurious beef brands. They have Moo jus, Bernaise or green peppercorn sauces to really complete your carnivorous journey.

Super popular with the locals, Hungry Joe’s Pizza & Ribs is a meat eaters dream. Head in and take a seat or simply order online and feast in the comfort of your own home. These guys are famous for their delicious home-style pizza and putting a spin on the traditional toppings. I don’t think you’ll find a pizza with more meat than the ‘Hannibal Feast’ that is topped with ham, bacon, pepperoni, meatballs, cabanossi, kabana and bbq pork. If you’re a real carnivore you will appreciate a quality rack of ribs from Hungry Joe’s Pizza & Ribs. Try the pork ribs in hickory smoked BBQ sauce or the beef ribs braised in a Chinese broth. These are both available in a 1/2 or 1 Kilogram serving. If you’re more of a white meat person try their bbq, honey, satay or chilli wingettes! They’re finger lickin’ good.
