Relax at the Waverley

If you haven’t been to Carousel shopping centre for a while you will be pleasantly surprised. Maybe you have just been grocery shopping and not ventured upstairs to where there are many dining options and a relaxing vibe. In the recently refurbished centre, there is a multitude of things to do to keep the family occupied. One of those things includes having a meal at the Waverley Brewhouse, a casual dining venue where even teenagers with their voracious appetites will be satisfied.

Inspired by a love of great beer and top-quality food, the Waverley opened in August 2018. Designed as a contemporary Australian pub and microbrewery, The Waverley delivers delicious unpasteurised beer direct from the tank to the table. The menu offers a mix of everything including some Aussie Classics. There are quite a few share plate options and it’s a good way to try the various dishes. All produce is sourced locally where possible including the meat which comes from Mondo Meats.

DSC_3783The Tacos were a great starter consisting of three flour tortilla, crispy fish or pulled pork, slaw, chipotle aioli, guacamole and corn salsa.

We loved the flavoursome grilled salmon on perfectly cooked sweet potato mash with carrots, pickled beets, brown butter and dukkah.

The house specialty is the Chicken Parmigiana – panko crumbed chicken with Napolitana sauce, mozzarella, basil and fries; always a popular choice.

The full rack of BBQ pork ribs with a brown sugar butter glaze, house barbeque sauce, slaw pickles and fries was so substantial it almost defeated me. Head chef Ryan Ebbs with fifteen years cooking experience behind him, says the ribs are slow cooked for twelve hours, basted with yellow mustard, barbeque rub, char-grilled and sprinkled with love.

While the portion sizes are large, they are designed to be shared so that everyone orders a meal and gets to try a variety of dishes on the menu. And trust me – there will be no shortage of food to try.

The shiny beer tanks are a feature of the restaurant without detracting from the ambience of the venue. In fact they are an attraction PalmyHand add to the atmosphere. Venue manager, Chad Kaya said customers enjoy interacting and talking to the staff about the brewing process. We had a Session Ale beer with our meal which was liquid gold. There is something about microbrewery beer and one of those things is taste. ‘It’s easy drinking,” agreed Chad, “Similar to a lager.’ As well as the onsite brewed beers, there is a choice of wines, cocktails and soft drinks.

Chef Ryan is in charge of the kitchen and menu planning and said he’s very happy with the modern kitchen installed by Caterlink. Business Development Manager, Adrian Tobin worked with Moffat to make sure the kitchen and bars were designed and supplied with the most appropriate equipment from Moffat. These include Waldorf heavy duty cooking, Convotherm combination ovens, Scotsman ice machines and Washtech warewashing and glasswashing machines. Ryan said, ‘It’s very reassuring having super reliable equipment and gives you peace of mind to know it all does what it’s supposed to do.’

Popular with families, the Waverley is open Monday to Thursday until 9pm and Friday and Saturday until 10pm. With a comprehensive play area outside, with soft spongy flooring, it’s a safe area for kids and there is an acoustic artist performing there from Thursdays through to the weekend.

Carousel is so much more than a shopping centre and the relaxed dining options like the Waverley Brewhouse will see you returning again and again.
