Dining out at CHEEK


I haven’t taken a “selfie” in public for awhile, so please bear with my strange poses..

Having loved our visit to Dexter in Preston, I decided to take Ash to CHEEK, their sister store in the CBD, to celebrate his birthday! I was very excited to be able to get my hands on (and sink my teeth into) these meat donuts after so long (hence, the slightly deranged photo above), so you can imagine that my only contribution to the ordering process was to add the hot meat donuts. The birthday boy did the rest.


Starting off with the donuts and a smoked lamb rib, we were off to a good start! I’m actually not the biggest fan of lamb, so I was more than happy to keep that donut to myself while Ash (who loves lamb) devoured that.

For the mains, we decided to get two meats and two sides. Ash can be quite particular about food he eats, so we always avoid the ‘Feed Me’ options, and instead go for picking our own menu items. I loved the mash & gravy… granted that I love most mash & gravy, but the bone marrow really gave it another dimension, and easily became my second favourite of the night (after the donut).


(Starting from the back, L-R) Charred Cabbage, Smoked Short Rib, Smoked Wagyu Brisket and Bone Marrow Mash & Gravy

The only problem with picking our own menu items is that we usually over order…

The above might not look like a lot of food, but trust me, it was way too much food for the both of us to handle (namely, me). Luckily, CHEEK put our left overs in a nice little takeaway box and we were able to drop it off in Ash’s workplace staff fridge before we headed home (beats carrying a box of meat on the train home lol).

This was a great (work) night, and we rolled home happily with our tummies full.
