Lodger Kitchen & Bar
Lodger Kitchen & Bar is the brainchild of two hospitality experts who pooled their know-how to create a casual bar and eatery that foregrounds spruced-up comfort food. The dog-friendly locale is tucked away on Sandgate Road in Albion and boasts both interior and laid-back exterior dining. Comfort food provides the key inspirational touchstone for the menu, starting with snacks like crispy potato skins with slow-cooked pork belly and followed by the likes of including gin-cured salmon with roasted fennel, mushroom pierogis, beetroot ravioli stuffed with goat’s cheese and the spiral ratatouille with confit vegetables and tomato ragout. Lodger Kitchen & Bar also opens on the weekend for breakfast, serving up ginger waffles with roasted peaches and Fonzie Abbott coffee. Lodger Kitchen & Bar’s drinks selection starts with a range of tailor-made cocktails with an emphasis on the classics, as well as local craft beers, plus Australian and left-of-centre French wines.
