Review: Percy’s Bar & Kitchen (Orange NSW)

Alvaro came to visit last weekend. He was here for just over a day and, naturally, I tried to pack in as many meals out as possible. I was hoping for a hipster-style cafe lunch, but he was starving so I suggested plan B: Percy’s Bar & Kitchen, which offers several protein-packed dishes.

Given it was after noon I thought a glass of local sparkling would be not only appropriate but also justified.

My non-negotiable shared dish was smoked beef brisket, corn fritters & onion rings with chimichurri sauce, which I had been eyeing for a few weeks. It was good, although it wasn’t as smokey and tender as the brisket offered at my favourite Sydney American-style BBQ joints. This dish is gluten-free; the onion rings were great but I’ve had better corn fritters. The chimichurri was on the chunky side (almost like a pesto), but it was good.

We chose our second dish from the specials board: spicy pork ribs with polenta chips & pear slaw. Ribs are my favourite cut, even more when they are of swine origin. Both the polenta chips and the salad were awesome.

Alvaro chose the poached pear & tapioca pudding with candied orange & rhubarb for dessert, which was nice enough for me to have more than one spoonful. It helped that the pears had been poached in red wine.
