Inspired by the meaty flavours of the Deep South, Smokey Jake’s Neighbourhood BBQ in Melbourne’s Ormond district is a super laid-back restaurant on North Road. The well-loved local establishment serves smoked and cured meats, burgers, biscuits and gravy, specialty sandwiches, vegetarian creations and other American classics – with a delightfully sunny courtyard and cool and contemporary interior to enjoy the BBQ goods in. What sets this neighbourhood gem apart from others is their approach to sourcing produce. All of the meat comes direct from free range farms in Victoria, St. David Dairy in Fitzroy supplies all the buttery ingredients, coffee is locally roasted, ice cream comes from Ormond Ice Creamery down the road and the pink salt and olives are courtesy of Mt. Zero Olives in the Grampians. It’s all about the local community at Smokey Jake’s, so make sure you swing by for a bite of the south soon!
