QLD, Brisbane – Embassy Bar

Cuisine: American, Pub Food
Location: QLD, Brisbane CBD

After my tasty lunch at Aria I had started to build up a reasonably substantial appetite and decided on a heartier dinner options so I chose Embassy Bar. The comments on Urbanspoon rated this place for American food so I visited for dinner and got the much talked about ribs.

While I waited I observed the bar which was mainly full up of the office crowd. Live entertainment started setting up and they also have free wifi. After a reasonable wait I received a decent serve of pork ribs with some delicious cornbread and some green beans that could have done with some more cooking. The ribs had a lovely flavour but were a bit tough. Actually the ribs had a lot of inedible gristle fat and sinew. The meat didn’t come off the bone easily and was rather underwhelming. I had asked the barman when placing my order if they also have dessert. They were doing a peanut butter ice cream and pie but after this disappointing dish, I didn’t bother to stick around to try the dessert.

Embassy Bar Food Review Summary

Verdict: Based on the comments from Urbanspoon, a visit to Embassy Bar is a good choice if you want some true American fare. The much talked about ribs is what I ordered but I found them really underwhelming. A lot of gristle and inedible stuff on the ribs, while the pork meat didn’t come off the bone easily. The marinade on the ribs was pretty good but it needs to increase it’s intensity in flavour. The cornbread is delicious, a lovely corn flavour with just that hint of sweetness. The green beans were a little crispy for my liking and would have preferred further cooking. It’s good value at $20 considering the serving, but an improvement on the cooking and cut of ribs would make this dish fantastic.
Price: Reasonable
Taste: Great
Value: Good
Recommendation: Worth Visiting Again
