In a new location since October, Huber’s Butchery and (now larger) Bistro, helmed by members of the affable Huber family, offers cheese and bread sections, vegetables, fruit and herbs mainly from Australia, barbecue grills with accessories, plus Aussietipples. There is even a bespoke sausage service, complete with viewing-window. The proof is inthe eating! With seating indoors or outdoors, Huber’s Bistro is nestled by the edible herb and flower garden, near a tree-shaded children’s playground.

My friends and I enjoyed the bundner teller, comprising Swissstyle air-dried beef, raw bacon and ham served with cheese, gherkins, silverskin onions andrye bread ($14.80). A warm roast beef sandwich hits the right spot with its mustard-horseradish dressing. Australian lamb chops ($24) tempt, as does Australian angus fillet steak topped with café de paris butter, served with vegetables and chips (fries) ($28). For children, meatloaf, noodles or meat balls are available.
