Entertainment in the Byron Shire for the week beginning 26 January, 2022

There's still loads of stuff on in the Byron Shire and beyond

Congratulations to our local favourite restaurant Barrio Eatery & Bar, who has just been named as ‘one of Byron’s most popular all-day eateries for Middle Eastern-inspired cooking’ by the Sydney Morning Herald’s renowned ‘Good Food Guide’ 2021.

Check out the new summer menu by Head Chef, Jude Hughes, which is a celebration of what is delicious right now. All produce is smoked, cured, and pickled in-house and the menu is constantly evolving.

A complex arrangement of hooks, chains and flames allow for simultaneous fast and slow cooking; tuna is cured into bacon for breakfast bagels; slow ferment sourdough flatbread is grilled with chicken fat and za’atar; Kinkawooka mussels are steamed and smoked before being submerged in preserved lemon and olive oil; large pieces of Provenir hanger steak rest on top of the grill; while ‘to-order’ beef hearts sizzle on skewers below, then, they are thinly sliced and served with house-made taramasalata (a twist on vitello tonnato).

Make sure you order the Fremantle octopus with confit potato and olives; and save room for the Baklava with house-made strawberry sorbet.

What does Australia Day mean?

Another Australia Day. Another divisive polemic about the date, the day, and its meaning. Those who seek to change the date argue that 26 January signifies the beginning of Britain’s invasion of Australia and the violent expropriation of Aboriginal lands.
