Fancy Hanks Launches Fancy Brunch Sundays

Fancy Hank’s has shaken up the brunch game and launched Fancy Brunch Sundays! The World Loves Melbourne was invited along. Because eating brunch is fancy Melbourne’s barbecue professionals, Fancy Hank’s, recently launched their first-ever brunch menu, and we were highly impressed.

Fancy Hank's new barbecue brunch menu is $50pp and happens every Sunday from 12-2pm. Most importantly, don’t be late because there are bottomless cocktails as well. The new brunch menu includes a choice of two brunch items along with two bottomless cocktails, sample the Kentucky Iced Tea (bourbon, iced tea, cherry bitters) and Pomelo Spritz (Pampelle ruby red grapefruit liqueur, mango liqueur, Prosecco). We loved both cocktails!

Kentucky Iced Tea and Pomelo Spritz are bottomless from 12 - 2pm! I loved these spritz cocktails! I reckon Fancy Hank's are onto something.

The brunch menu features a series of nostalgic American breakfasts hailing from the South including Valentina style breakfast tacos with tender smoked beef brisket, scrambled egg and fire roasted tomato salsa. The tacos are inspired by renowned barbecue joint in Austin called Valentina’s Tex Mex, which Fancy Hank’s Executive Chef Mike Patrick visited on his last trip to America.

Spicy spare ribs are melt in your mouth with a killer sweet habanero glaze.

Smoked chicken tamale was a highlight.

More menu items include a Smoked chicken tamale, egg, corn bread, smoked pork sausage and gravy, smoked white fish bagel and spicy pork spare ribs. Or, if you’d prefer something sweet, Fancy Hank’s famous toasted corn bread will be served with Jalapeno butter and sweet preserves.

Smoked eggplant was delicious. Fancy Hanks are famous for meat BBQ but not just meat; savvy with vegetables such as this dish! 

Additional menu items are $12.50 each. Bookings can be made via however walk-ins will also be accepted if available. All of Fancy Hank’s meats are gluten-free and they also cater for vegetarians and vegans, not bad for a barbecue joint. The meat lovers are sure to enjoy Fancy Hank’s selection of free-range meats, sourced from Gippsland, cooked in their infamous two-tonne custom-built smoker for up to 22-hours.

A crowdpleaser was the Valentina's style breakfast taco with brisket! A generous breakfast taco is a great start to Sunday, especially when it involves brisket, fried egg, cheese and Ranchero salsa!

Scones and cream? No way. How about Toasted buttermilk biscuits with a sensational jalapeno butter and house made preserve.

For those who are keen to continue the Sunday session after your brunch, head up to Good Heavens rooftop bar for a spritz and live tunes. Fancy Hank’s 1/79 Bourke Street Melbourne VIC 3000 @fancyhanksbbq/
