Take the menu board at the Dogs’ Bar in St Kilda, Melbourne: Italian carbonara – you can’t go wrong, kids love it. French beef cheek rague (what’s rague, you ask? Obviously, it’s the chef’s fusion of ragu and ragout. Derrr). Salmon “+ prawn pie” – a fancy British fish pie. Indian goat vindaloo – I consider vindaloo the neutron bomb of cuisine, it wipes out everything (but perfect for winter). At $20-$25, all good value. BTW goat is acknowledged as the world’s most widely eaten quadruped per capita; but pork is by volume.
