Chermside has been begging for a modish bar with craft beer and good food. Sasquatch Bar has thankfully filled the spot.
They opened in early January but the potential of this bar is already evident in the decor, atmosphere, food and drink. With super passionate owners you are ensured an awesome experience. They are open for breakfast until late so you can grab breakfast, finger food and a coffee in the morning and end the day with a few drinks once you’ve finished work. Or if you are apart of the lucky ones, a lunch menu is also available.
The bar food may sound and appear as your classic favourites but there is a twist. Instead of a usual grill, all food is cooked using a Yakitori grill. Although this a traditional Japanese method of cooking, the menu is not entirely of Japanese cuisine - just inspired.
The snack menu includes Hot Buttered Nuts, Chilli and Fennel Sicilian Olives (beware as the olives are not pitted) and Fried Chicken Karaage. Just the smell of the Hot Buttered Nuts will have your mouth watering. It is such a simple dish but so delicious, especially with one of the 20 bottled beers or 8 tap beers on top. It would be a crime not to pair the Fried Chicken Karaage with a few drinks. Crispy, tender and delicious.
The Heroes menu include Sticky Maggi Pork Belly option, Haloumi, Miso Glazed Barramundi and more. There are so many different Heroes to choose from and portioned really well. The Stick Maggi Pork Belly has fresh chilli in it but is really tasty; worth picking it out if you do not like spicy food. The waffles fries are not to be missed either.
Get excited Northside folks as this new addition is a goodie. With yummy, well priced food, flowing drinks and a chilled atmosphere, only a good time is to be had.
Sasquatch bar is exactly what Chermside and the Northside of Brisbane needed. All of your classic favourites done differently.
