Much as I love entertaining at home, I love to go out. I have high expectations when I go out as I want great value and a taste experience I am unlikely to create at home! I love ribs but have not quite mastered the art of cooking them to perfection – it is still a work in progress. However, the best slow cooked ribs I have ever tasted are at Third Wave Cafe in Rouse Street, Port Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Third Wave is a cafe by day and restaurant at night. They do slow cooked beef ribs, pork ribs, beef brisket, lamb, chicken and salmon. It is a great place for a group as you order plates of ribs to share. Add in a few salads and side dishes – coleslaw, mushrooms and potatoes – and you have an amazing meal! The best part is, it is not expensive and everything on the menu is actually exceptionally good. We have been there for breakfast, lunch and dinner and each time had an amazing experience! The staff are friendly and you do not have to dress up to go out. They also do great coffee and have a great wine list too!
