Meatmother

This Melbourne venue has been on our to-do list for quite some time, and while it was pretty darn good, it wasn't as amazing as I had hoped. Meatmother is all about American BBQ, so vegetarians need not apply.
 
The menu is simple; choose your meat, choose the delivery (toast or bun) and choose your side.
 
I'm a sucker for pulled pork, so I chose the bun. Mac n Cheese as my side.
The pork was good. But in all honesty, it was no better than what I make myself (and I make a fantastic pulled pork). The mac was nice and creamy, but a little salty hit wouldn't have gone astray. 

The other half chose the brisket, which we are told is their signature dish, served with toast and fries. The meat is beautifully melt-in-the-mouth. And the fries have that nice salty tang I was looking for.
 
To quench the thirst we chose the Dark and Stormy in a Pitcher; not cheap at $36 but certainly more economical than by-the-glass.
 
 
And by now we all know that I like dessert. Just two options; peanut butter cheesecake, and apple pie. I chose the cheesecake and was a little surprised to see it served in a jar/glass. I guess this is hipster territory. Fortunately it was good cheesecake, good peanut butter flavour and not sickly sweet. And no fighting over that little Oreo either!
 
 
All in all, it was a very good meal. But not the cheapest given the size of the serves. I like my burgers just a tad larger. Now I've ticked it off the list I probably don't need to return.
