2Forks, Milton, Brisbane

April 23, 2017

When you hear there's a place specialising in 10-hour slow-cooked hand-pulled meat, you wonder whether it would make that big of a difference compared to those other ones? Well, at 2Forks, the meat states that it is 100% Australian and allows you to build your own burger based on their slow-cooked hand-pulled meats. Near Milton Station, they are rather quite convenient however, for those who will be driving, then street parking is key.

Both indoor and outdoor seatings are available with a rusted steel bucket filled with forks and knives as well as serviettes. Salt and pepper as well as various salt and seasoning available on the table.

There may not be as much of a wide range of drinks choice but it is definitely sufficient and more than you may think. Being a licensed venue, they have Shiraz or Rose, Chardonnay or Pinot Grigio by the glass or the bottle as well as Asahi, Mountain Goat Steam Ale on tap as well as Somersby Appe Cider and Cricketers Arms Scorcher.

Having a look through the menu allows you to have your own pick of what style of bun you would like from Brioche to Honey roll or Black brioche to sliders. You could also choose to have it in a toasted burrito or with Nachos and even with Jasmine rice or your choice of salad. So to be honest, the choice is yours but then, it can make you more confused in what you should get. If you do want to nibble, there are a variety of sides available such as Spicy wings, corn on the cob, Panko crumbed onion rings and so on.

First, choose your meat. Then, choose your style, in a bun, salad, with rice or nachos etc. Last, add a side or even something to share such as a share platter or USA style pork ribs. There are a few options for buns which allows everyone to choose their preferred bun to their liking. From Brioche to Black Brioche, from Multigran to Honey roll, so whichever tickles your fancy, go ahead and give it a go..

'Tequila Beef' (AUD$13.5) was something that caught our eyes, but then it may have just been the fact that it had the word, Tequila in it. Hand pulled beef with tequila lime sauce served with a tangy green apple and radish slaw neatly stacked between a Multigrain bun. First impression was that it was stacked very neatly with each of the elements in the burger able to be seen and not hidden. I have to say that it can be quite hard when choosing an item from a menu, seeing the pretty images but then what you get doesn't look like the images at all? I guess that has happened to all of us, more than once definitely..

The multigrain bun was soft inside but was a bit dry on the outside. It was quite hard trying to grab it with two hands and trying to bite into it. For some reason however, not sure if it was due to the slaw or the marinated meat but the juices and liquid was surrounding the burger on the wooden round plate. That, made the bottom bun quite soggy even before we started eating which was a shame but overall, the burger had nice flavours with the right elements combined into one. The crunchy texture of the tangy apple gave the burger that hint of sweetness and combined with the tomato, lettuce and cheddar cheese, it mixed well together. The tequila beef was nicely done however I could not really taste the tequila.

'Bourbon Pork' (AUD$14.5) was another that caught our interest, hand pulled pork with homemade BBQ sauce served with a tangy green apple and radish slaw in a Black brioche bun. Do note that all burgers do include lettuce, tomato, onion relish, sweet and spicy pickles as well as cheddar cheese. So yes, it is very similar to the beef burger we also bought at the same time but then, who could go wrong with Tequila and Bourbon?

'DIY Sweet Potato Chips' (AUD$5) served with a hot chilli mayo was also ordered as we wanted to nibble on something while munching on our burgers. At first, I had forgotten that the mayo was suppose to have that kick as it seemed to be a creamy consistency. However, the perfectly fried sweet potato chips really were complemented well with the hot chilli mayo. I do have to say that it really doesn't make you feel it would be hot since it doesn't have that distinct red creamy colour. When you dip a chip in, the mayo will give that kick once it reaches your tongue, when you start chewing and tasting it together. I quite liked their hot chilli mayo even if I'm not big on spicy food but I did feel that it was a great twist rather than having tomato sauce or just simple mayo on the side.

For those who like their fries a certain way or maybe their meats with that extra spice or tickle, then help yourself to your own 'DIY Seasoning station' where you are able to choose and use as little or as much from a range of seasonings and salts such as Szechuan Pepper to Roasted Garlic or Applewood Smoked salt and so on.

Having an open kitchen in a way that allows a full view for diners to have a glimpse at the kitchen's operation allows everyone to see the preparation to the hand-pulling of the meats to the burger making or even the fresh salads.
