The Lamb Shop
Beautifully cooked meat. Soft, flavourful bread. A good bit of sauce and a squeeze of lemon. These are the simple pleasures The Lamb Shop deals in. It strikes a balance between your favourite Greek restaurant and your favourite souvlaki takeaway. And this outpost followed the Broadbeach original, which is known for drawing crowds every night with its smells of smoky, sizzling meat on the spit.
While the prices may be a little higher than usual fast food, you’re paying for quality. The meats are slow cooked over charcoal. It serves South Australian seafood for its bar snack plates. Lamb is raised in Junee in New South Wales.
The staff is friendly and happy to share the odd trade secret. If they see you peering curiously over the counter at a bubbling water bath, you’ll be told about the lamb ribs are being slow cooked inside for 15 hours – the secret to the miraculously tender meat.
The simple pleasures extend to a straightforward selection of craft beers and soft drinks and a trio of wines – one white (a gentle sauvignon blanc); one red (a bold malbec); one rosé.
