The Butcher's Block
15 Redleaf Ave
Wahroonga, Sydney

In quite a short time The Butchers Block has moved from new kid on the block (pun intended - sorry) in Wahroonga to a North Shore institution that people travel quite a long distance to visit.

In fact, they've even had a love child - having opened up The Butcher's Apprentice next door.

If you're wondering - yes this was once a butchers shop once upon a time.

They've certainly kept plenty of the history pf the place very visible too - with a wide range of butcher and meat related devices all over the place.

Coffee - the appeaser of busy people - was the first order while waiting for company to arrive for lunch. It was good too - which helps explain the queue's here on Saturday mornings grabbing a take away fix on the way to sport etc!

Sir was so tempted to have the lobster roll but eventually wavered and went with the pulled pork burger made with slow braised pork, pickled spicy slaw, apple cider mayo, crackling and fries. It was probably the crackling that swayed him - and it turned out to be a great choice too that he loved and devoured eagerly. 

The guests went very differently. One had the peri peri chicken pita that came filled with grilled chicken, garlic aioli, cherry tomatoes, baby spinach, coriander, mint and fries. The other had what Sir was contemplating - the lobster roll with whole lobster tail, mayonnaise, pickled cornichons and sweet potato chips.

Both were lovely meals with substantial quantities of good food!

Having now visited The Butcher's Block in beautiful suburbia Wahroonga its easy to see why it's so popular.

The whole place has a relaxed feel to it. It's nicely fitted out and has great flow and space from indoor areas through to a lovely rear outdoor area that's so fashionable on weekends and fine sunny days.

Would we come back - absolutely yes. The food and drinks were very good and it all felt great.
