Lid & Jar
I had first heard about the Lid & Jar at Rhodes and had tried the honeycomb milkshake there, and thought it was fantastic!
But there was little food options there so I was so glad when I heard they were opening a new store at Chatswood.
The store is located at the Concourse and there’s seating upstairs outside, which has a lovely relaxing atmosphere.
We were recommended the sliders and southern fried chicken.
The pork belly sliders were amazing. The pulled pork was braised to perfection – super tender and juicy.
The spicy mayo went perfectly with it. But what I liked most was that crispy brioche bun.
The southern fried chicken was really authentic, though I must admit I still prefer Mary’s. The chips though were disappointing.
I also ordered the Chai milkshake, which was amazing! I highly recommend it.
It comes served in a hipster mason jar – Instagram worthy.
All in all, this is a great place to hang out and just chill with some great food.
It has a really relaxed atmosphere and I loved how it wasn’t too packed.
I’m not sure why it hasn’t gotten some rave reviews, but I did go on a weekday around 2pm so when it was not so busy. From personal experience staff were all very friendly and helpful.
