The Acres Club, Greenacre is a newly renovated Bistro with modern decor, now owned by Bankstown sports. It occupies the interior of the bowling club. The club also has pokies, a bar with some local Basement Brewhouse beers and greens outside for a game of lawn bowls.
Open 10 – 10 and midnight between Thurs and Sun, you can pop in for lunch, an arvo session or party on into the night. The space is also extremely family friendly and would also be a good venue for a catch up of birthday celebration.
The menu has a broad range of cuisines to suit different tastes, a largely Euro menu with a Japanese influence.
The Japanese options include Takoyaki Octopus, Chicken Karage and Prawn Gyoza. The Gyoza had a really nice flavour and pan fried, accompanied with a home-made soy dipping sauce. We also tried the tempura prawn Udon, a lovely broth with noodles and a plate of crispy tempura prawns.
From the starters menu, we also tried some of the more bistro options including the salt and pepper prawns with salad and chips.
The mains list also boasts steaks, fish; salmon or barramundi as well as panko crumbed chicken schnitzel and braised lamb shanks for those wanting a hearty dish.
A good option if you’re with a group is the Mediterranean tasting plate as you can try the souvlaki, haloumi, olives, arancini, chorizo, baby squid and more.
There’s also pizzas, pasta and a couple of burgers, including a soft shell crab burger with Japanese Mayo.
You also can’t go past the panko crumbed banana, pavlova or crepes for a sweet end to your dinner.
Acres Street Food
We were at The Acres on a Thursday night which coincided with their “Acres Street Food event” which hosts a number of food trucks out on the Green.
Grab your food and chill at one of the bench tables and relax.
Some great coffee by grind and press coffee crew, burgers from 2guys_burgers and pulled pork tacos from miss mabels food. We also tasted one of the best tasting plates of meats from smoking grill barbecue – these guys have their huge smoker on site to produce some of the best ribs around.
Finish off with dessert from gelato brioche who have gelato brioche and milkshakes!
Thanks to the Chew Crew for the invitation to dine.
