The Food

I just came across the Nighthawk Diner when they were parked in Sydney's inner city suburb of Glebe. You couldn't go past their Food Truck that looks like a shiny silver bullet on wheels. The whole design of the Food Truck is reminiscent of the 1950-60s caravan.

The food was great. They had on offer:

  • Chicken Burger
  • Cheese Burger
  • Shroom Burger
  • Fries
  • Fries with cheese

I had the Cheese Burger. It was so good. The burger patty was very tasty topped with fresh lettuce, tomato, cheese, pickles and their special sauce on a brioche bun. This was complimented by a serving of their fries which were cooked perfectly and seasoned nicely with salt.

The team in the Food Truck were fun and friendly. Overall it was a great experience.

About The Nighthawk Diner

The Nighthawk Diner, was founded by Al and Jim, who are a couple of young chefs with backgrounds in French fine dining. Both of them travelled extensively in North America where they developed a love for American culture and cuisine. Through their creative efforts and love for American dining, The Nighthawks Diner was born. The name, The Nighthawks Diner was inspired by an American oil painting by Edward Hopper named 'Nighthawks'. The painting features a late night downtown American diner.

Spring Lamb a perfect match with Craft Beer

BBQ Lamb is Good

Australian Lamb this Spring is at it's peak. At this time of year it is definitely worth a trip to your local butcher to bag yourself some beautiful Australian Lamb.

Last week our family did exactly that and grilled up some juicy Lamb Chops on the BBQ. It was a perfect way to round off a great Sunday afternoon.

Cooking Tip

Lamb is such an ideal cut of meat to throw onto the BBQ. We simply marinated the Lamb Chops in good quality olive oil and fresh rosemary from our garden, and topped off the marinate with a good grind of sea salt and black pepper.

Beer Match

Lamb matches beautifully with our Gibbs Premium Pale Ale as it is a smooth beer with a fresh taste. This fresh taste is a great way to welcome Spring and get ready for Summer.

Pale Ale and Food

Pale Ale - as a beer style was first made in 1703. Before then most beers were dark ales. The use of pale malt gives a Pale Ale the lighter colour we see today. Due to the popularity of the Pale Ale beer style it has flourished and today many brewers use different techniques like varying the hop levels in the brewing process. Doing so changes the taste of the Pale Ale beer.

Food Match - Goes really well with beef burgers or meat pies.

Cheese Match - Well aged cheddar

Our Pale Ale - Our Pale displays confident hop aromas and traditional amber colouring. Smooth mouth textures and pleasantly fruity notes combine to create a balanced short finish.
