The Builders Arms is always a solid option for Sunday lunch, but on April 14 there’s even more reason to swing by the Gertrude Street pub and bistro for a feed.
In collaboration with Free to Feed – a social enterprise that champions the skills of refugees, people seeking asylum and new migrants through paid training, employment and events – the pub is hosting a Pakistani feast.
Free to Feed instructor and chef Shahid Syed Burney and Builder’s Arms’ head chef Andy Barkham have created a special menu around the pub’s woodfired rotisserie for the occasion.
The centrepiece is a contemporary take on a karachi sakjji, which traditionally takes the form of colourful boiled eggs stuffed inside whole a quail, stuffed inside a whole chicken, stuffed inside a whole lamb and grilled over fire. And the pair called on Meatsmith’s Troy Wheeler to help them put it together.
The meal starts with drinks and canapés in the courtyard, followed by lunch and dessert upstairs in The Bowery Room. It’s $95 a head and includes a small selection of drinks.
From 12.30pm to 4pm.
