At the end of the week, it’s great to enjoy drinks and some tasty nibbles after work on a Friday.
Set in the gardens in front of Old Parliament House, the Pork Barrel Cafe is a good place to try for it’s Happy Hour drinks (daily 5-6pm) and two for one pizzas on Fridays (also on Mondays and Tuesdays).
Glasses of Secret Garden Cab Sav or Sav Blanc/Sem are $4 and generous during happy hour (usually $6).
The pizzas are delicious and about $15-$16 for a small size ($23-25 for medium, $28-32 for large).
Fungi – button mushrooms and (plenty of) blue cheese
Pommodoro – pancetta, provolone and semi dried tomatoes
Straight cut fries with three condiments (lovely hot and crisp) $8.50
Take home what you don’t finish for $1 a pizza box.
