Little Hunter: Chicken Skin Butter

Dined with girlfriends at Little Hunter in March 2013 in the early days of this restaurant.  Location wise, it’s a bit tricky to find and the building is almost like a construction site.  But once you get in there, it’s modern and stylish but perhaps a tad dark.

The most awesome surprise arrived with the bread:  chicken skin butter.  And oh my, did it taste devine!   I’d say it’s a heart attack in a bowl.  Luckily for me, they gave us a very modest amount of it.

We tried a few things, including the beef tartare which came out more like sashimi.  It was really good.  Also had a serve of the pork crackling.  I really wished I had a beer to go with that.  And footy on the TV.

Pork cracklingGiven it’s suppose to be a steak kinda place,  for my main I had steak.  I don’t remember what cut of meat it was but it was excellent.  Had a wonderful smoked flavour and cooked perfectly. Came with a nice solid mushroom and sauce.  Yum!

I think Little Hunter is still finding it’s feet.  Some things were amazing (chicken skin butter, the steak) but it still felt like there were elements that needed some work.  Would I go back?   Sure, only to give it another go.   And for the butter.
