Whether it’s slow cooked in a stew, smoked, or chargrilled to perfection, there’s something quite comforting about the primal protein that is meat. From crispy pork belly to a rare-or-medium-rare slab of steak, dishes that feature it often highlight the fine balance it plays between fat, crispiness, and achieving a tender bite. When done right, it can either become the biggest guilty pleasure, or the homiest comfort meal.
And as we’re all staying at home reminiscing the days when we could splurge on a night out, we’re all in need of that bite of comfort and pleasure that comes with tucking into a meat dish. While some restaurants have gone on an indefinite hiatus, others are offering deliveries and takeaways to relive that experience at home. If your inner carnivore has been particularly hungry recently, here’s where we suggest you order from to get your fix.
From the Josper grill to your dining room, Park Grill is bringing you the heartiest comfort foods to soothe your soul.
