5 of the Weirdest and Most Wonderful Foods in Hobart
Whether it’s a high-end restaurant or the corner burger joint, Hobart has shown itself to be a force to be reckoned with when it comes to inventive food creations. We ate our way through the city to track down the weirdest and most wonderful dishes we could find.
It’s the marriage of sweet and savoury that makes the PB&J waffle at Honey Badger Dessert Café so incredible. Pairing sweet Belgian waffles, peanut butter fudge sauce and strawberry jam with grilled bacon, cherry tomatoes, and seasonal sprouts doesn’t seem like it’d be a winner, but it all comes together like they were meant to be. It truly is a match made in heaven.

Wild Boar Burger
As the people at The Burger Haus say, “live by the burger, die by the burger”. While we hope the wild boar burger doesn’t do you any harm, we wouldn’t be surprised if it takes you to foodie heaven. Richer in flavour than pork, the wild boar burger comes together nicely with cheese, ‘Haus’ slaw, a fennel and Galliano mayo, and their smoky barbecue sauce. Wash it down with one of their massive and incredibly decadent – but oh-so-worthwhile – specialty shakes. Did we mention that they can be made even more special by adding a sneaky shot of booze? Because that seems important…

At the Cinema
Awarded the Tasmanian Restaurant of the Year and Restaurant of the Year for regional Australia in 2015, the folks at Frogmore Creek Restaurant in Cambridge aren’t messing around when it comes to food. Elegant yet playfully plated dishes are just warming you up for the wonder that is the creative and ever-so delicious ‘At the Cinema’ dessert. Everything you could want from your movie experience is represented: waffle cone, popcorn caramel, white chocolate ice cream, popping candy, cola gel – it’s got it all!

Be prepared to meet your biggest challenge yet, Hobart. This may look like a fairly standard dessert offering, but it’s the unseen flavours that make the Nemesis Cake a force to be reckoned with. The rich chocolate cake is paired with a wicked whisky ice cream, brazil nuts, and a smoked paprika praline that has to be tasted to be believed. This is a dark and mysterious dish out of Frank’s kitchen, and, quite frankly, we’re utterly smitten.

Churro Dulce De Leche
Not content with just making insanely good tequila cocktails, the Pancho Villa team have raised the bar with their dessert game too. The churro ice cream sandwich is still distinctly Mexican, while taking a creative spin on the traditional churro. Smooth, creamy ice cream is smooshed between two churro spirals, and then the whole thing is smothered in a rich and oh-please-let-me-bathe-in-this chocolate sauce. It’s pretty on the plate (perfect for Instagram) and because it’s a sandwich, that means it’s good for us, right?
