For three months, Salt Meats Cheese is bringing its Italian fare to the other side of the inner-city — and, for the first month, it'll have Gelato Messina for company. From Tuesday, July 3, the two new-ish arrivals to Brisbane are teaming up for a pop-up at West End's West Village. Yes, that means you'll be feasting on epic pizza and dessert combinations.
SMC's laneway stint will run until the end of September, serving up breakfast and lunch every day of the week, plus dinner from Wednesday to Sunday — so, if you're keen on truffle pizza, cheese wheel pasta and Nutella mud cake, this is where you'll want to head. It'll also be brewing up espresso and lattes every morning, as well as setting up a boutique container bar curated by Sydney mixologists Archie Rose. Unsurprisingly, espresso martinis will be on the menu.
As for Messina, come 5pm Fridays and midday on the weekend, the ice cream fiends will be whipping up mini gelato cakes and decadent hot chocolates. The latter just might get your tastebuds salivating; called a Bombe Choc Alaska, it comes complete with dulce de leche gelato toasted marshmallows.
