Ribs & Burgers opened a store in Chatswood about 3 months ago at the intersection of Victoria Ave and Penshurst St. We went around 6pm and it was already full inside. Luckily they had good heating for the outside seats. As it was quite busy, we had to wait about 40 mins for the food, but it was pretty worth it.
We had the full rack of marinated pork riblets, slow cooked for 8 hours then barbequed. It was tender and had a nice sticky crust on the outside. The meat wasn’t as moist as the ribs I’ve had at Barbuto in Narrabeen, but it was a lot nicer than the ribs at Hurricanes.
We had more protein in the form of the 400g grass-fed rump steak.
It was juicy, tender and had a smoky barbeque flavour. It was a generous portion, decently cooked and worth the wait.
The chips were crunchy, but still soft on the inside. We also had the cabbage salad, which was a combination of white and red cabbage, apple and roasted pine nuts in a vinaigrette dressing. I was a little disappointed that they used green apple instead of red as a little bit of sweetness would have add more dimension to the salad.
Ribs & Burgers is quite popular with families and it can get quite busy at night, so either go early or late. They’re open until 9:30-10pm.
If you’re looking for a place for a drink and snack, Pishon Café located just above Chatswood train station is a neat little café/patisserie. They have a small, but delicious looking selection of cakes and breads, and a range of beverages.
I highly recommend the taro tea. It’s light, creamy, not too sweet and has the distinct aroma of taro. Yum!
I also like the green tea chiffon cake. It’s moist and fluffy as all chiffon cakes should be, and has a mild hint of green tea.
You can eat in or takeaway, so stop by and I’m sure you’ll find something that catches your eye.
