Cargo Bar / Lounge

Honestly, I have never heard of Cargo until Michael worked there. Cargo Bar and Lounge is situated on the waterfront of King Street Wharf. The evening view under their alfresco canopies is picturesque, with the reflection of pretty lights on the water.

They claim to have dishes served in 20 minutes but I did not bother timing them.

I mean, who really cares when there is good company and free booze? We tried a few dishes and one that was a must-have, according to our in-house chef, was the ribs:

I thought it gave the ribs at the other famous establishment on the other side of the harbour a run for their money. Chef, I concur - finger-licking good and definitely fills up an empty stomach!

The Cargo beef burger consisting prime beef pattie, onion, beetroot, lettuce, tomato, aged cheddar, smokey barbeque sauce and fries was not too bad, either. I suppose Cargo does live up to its name of serving good beef:

If you love steak, be sure to take advantage of this offer:

They also serve seafood. The more expensive item would be the atlantic salmon served on a potato cake with rocket lettuce, sun-dried tomatoes and avocado salsa. This was lovely, although, if it were a slightly more moist, it would be perfect! Perhaps it was due to the thickness of the salmon fillet. Oh well, all the more worth the price!

Typical of all bars, they also serve fish and chips, a grilled John Dory fillet served with steak fries, home-made tartare sauce and salad:

With a skin that is crispy, it could do with slightly more tartare sauce. Don't feel like meat? Well, you could give their pumpkin and sage ravioli dressed in a light buerre noisette a try:

I was wondering where the pumpkin was until having consumed a few pieces of the pasta:

Haha, all hidden underneath! I particularly enjoyed the serving portion - not too big. Also, the noisette gave it a lovely, smooth texture.

We will try their famous steaks and pizza the next time we are there!
