Best Restaurant Melbourne

Are you ready for a mouth-watering experience? Try our Alpaca Boneless Shanks, a succulent and satisfying dish that will make you feel like a gourmet chef. These shanks come from the finest Alpaca farms in South Australia, where they are raised with care and respect. They are then slow cooked for nine hours until they fall off the bone, leaving you with a tender and juicy meat that melts in your mouth. To complement the rich flavour of the Alpaca, we serve them with a hearty mix of lentils and goji berries, roasted capsicum, and fresh green leaves. And to top it all off, we drizzle our signature Horn & Hoof sauce over the shanks, a secret blend of Madeira wine and spices that adds a touch of sweetness and spice. This is a dish you don’t want to miss!

Experience a culinary sensation like no other with our exquisite dish of Alpaca Boneless Shanks. We’ve taken the utmost care to ensure that every bite of this remarkable creation is a delightful experience for your taste buds. From the tenderization process to the bone removal, we have put in the effort so that you can simply savor the incredible results.

Sourced from Mount Compass in South Australia, these Alpaca shanks offer a unique twist to traditional meat dishes. Their darker, denser, and sweeter meat profile sets them apart from the more commonly used lamb. Our commitment to quality extends to the cooking process, as these shanks are slow-cooked for an impressive 9 hours, allowing the flavors to meld together perfectly.

To enhance the dish even further, we have crafted a blend of lentils and goji berries, providing a delightful balance of textures and flavors. The lentils add a hearty and earthy element, while the goji berries introduce a subtle sweetness. These carefully selected ingredients complement the rich and tender alpaca meat, resulting in a harmonious combination that will tantalize your palate.

No exceptional dish is complete without a truly special sauce. Our Alpaca Boneless Shanks are elegantly topped with our exclusive Horn & Hoof sauce. This sauce is a testament to our dedication to crafting unique and memorable culinary experiences. The recipe, developed exclusively by our team, showcases a symphony of flavors that perfectly complement the alpaca shanks and lentil blend.

Accompanying this exquisite creation are roasted capsicum and a bed of fresh green leaves, adding vibrant colors and additional layers of taste to the dish. The roasted capsicum lends a smoky sweetness, while the green leaves provide a refreshing contrast, making each bite a well-rounded and satisfying experience.

Whether you are a seasoned food connoisseur or an adventurous eater seeking new culinary horizons, our Alpaca Boneless Shanks dish promises to deliver a memorable dining experience. With its meticulously tenderized meat, unique lentil blend, specially crafted sauce, and thoughtfully selected accompaniments, this dish embodies the fusion of flavors and textures that will leave you craving for more.
