Backsliders coming to Lennox

Australian music legends the Backsliders are coming to Lennox Head for the first time, to play at the Lennox Head Cultural Centre on Saturday 26 June 2021.

Owing to popular demand Barrio Eatery & Bar have extended their opening hours to include Monday and Tuesday evenings, and they are offering $10 Barrio Passionfruit Spritz this Monday 29 and 30 October to celebrate. 

Barrio is renowned for its slow-cooked meats, but also cooks whole vegetables over the wood-fired oven and charcoal grill. Vegetarian options include stuffed vine leaves served with white bean and garlic puree, sultanas, pecans and Nimbin Valley feta; and whole head of wood-fired broccoli with labne, seeds, seaweed salt.

Argentinian-born head chef Franscisco Smoje explains the process behind this simple looking dish: ‘The wood creates initial smoke, so the broccoli has a wonderful warm, wood-smoked flavour. It’s a 1hr process before being served on a bed of labne mixed with a touch of tahini and blended with toffee garlic. I finish the dish with a sprinkle of pepitas, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds and seaweed salt for extra crunch and texture.’
