Pleased to Meet You – 4.5/5
We’re big fans of La Cholita, so on reading that owner Clint Nolan had opened another Northbridge venue, we had to visit. Found on Roe Street, in between William Street and Chinatown, Pleased to Meet You is fantastic music, great service, low-lighting, exposed brick walls and long shared dining bench tables.
The beer menu is lengthy, there is cider available off the tap in huge growler sized bottles and the food is amazing. The flavours are really interesting and it has been a long time since I was happy to order everything on the menu. Plus, the bottles of sriarcha on the tables are a nice touch.
We ordered the pulled pork slider, the duck and corn salsa taco, kai-lan with oyster sauce, salt and pepper squid banh mi, pork crackers with avocado dip and 100 grams of the succulent coal roasted suckling pig. My picks are the red curry-esque flavours of the duck taco and the pork. Give me a huge plate of that and I would die happy. How great is crackling, huh?
No bookings are taken, but no one seemed to wait long to be seated on the busy Friday night. Food and drink is paid for as you go, so try and snare a couple of seats at the bar. It will make it much easier to keep ordering more and more food to eat!
