Thoroughly impressed with the smoky rich flavours of the brunch fare on our last visit to Third Wave (click here for full review)
, we couldn’t pass up an invitation to try their American BBQ dinner menu. When this menu involves a salacious range of meats and salmon that have been dry rubbed with a complementary mix of spices, smoked over different woods over a period that ranges from 6 to 12 hours, and then slow cooked to juicy tender perfection, how could we say no?
Upon our arrival, we were greeted by friendly staff that were more than happy to discuss their recommendations over a menu that is packed with delicious options. This included the 6 different smoked meats and fish from the American BBQ menu, which come in medium/half rack (recommended for 1 person) and large/full rack servings (to be shared by 2), as well as a gluten-free Paleo menu and many of the delicious burger, slider and salad dishes featured in the lunch menu.
Looking around, we noted that no love had been lost over the night-time ambience of the eatery, which had transformed from a bright, open café during the day to a softly lit casual diner with a joy-inspiring background track of alternative electro house and pop (much to E’s delight).
