Bovine & Swine Barbecue Co.
Delicious 12-hour slow-cooked meat — eat in or take away.
The team at Bovine and Swine was sick of frequent parking tickets in the inner west, and feeling cramped in the old Newtown site, so the barbecue joint relocated to Emu Plains — much to the locals' delight. You'll know you've come to the right place as soon as you open the door and breathe in the intoxicating smell of Texas barbecued meats. It's a pared-back dining space and there's a casual vibe — you don't need fancy decor when the food tastes this good. Bovine and Swine wood-smoke all their meats for up to 12 hours, resulting in the most tender, juicy morsels of meat. The team uses Australian ironbark, which is what gives it that distinct flavour. You can buy brisket by the 100g measure, and load up on slaw, pickles and mac n' cheese. It's humble food, just the way it's meant to be.
