About Us

SLOW DINING / RESTAURANTS VICTORIA
"Many of us have swallowed the idea that when it comes to food, faster is better"
Quote: Carl Honore, Author of "In Praise Of Slow"

Nothing is further from the truth! Obesity rates are sky rocketing from consumption of processed food packed with fat and sugar!!

Not to say that ALL fast food is packed with empty calories, to the contrary…..but at the end of a grueling week, what could be more appealing then a nice SLOW dinner with a favourite bottle of wine served by someone else in a relaxing atmosphere!!! No rush to get through dinner, no line ups at the door eyeing your coveted seat…just great food, a relaxed atmosphere and a nice SLOW escape…just feel your week slide off….ahhhh!!! Now that feels good!!!

The Slow Food movement was founded by Carlo Petrini in Italy as a resistance movement to combat fast food. It claims to preserve the cultural cuisine and the associated food plants and seeds, domestic animals, and farming within an ecoregion.

Slow dining in Victoria does not necessarily mean organic. Please check with each individual restaurant for their organic menu selections.

SMOKEN BONES COOKSHACK

This up and coming hotspot has it !!We were seated and the waitress took our order for drinks. After pondering the menu for about five minutes we ordered. So much to choose from and it all looked delicious!! Dinner, when it arrived, was fantastic !!! The House Greens Salad with honey lemon vinaigrette was a refreshing contrast to the Smoken Pork Ribs that literally fell off the bone and the BBQ Chicken glazed with fireweed honey and mustard is more then worth a second trip.
If you are looking for a great BBQ restaurant this is it!
