There's more to the Sydney Fish Market than fish and other seafoods. Months ago, the famed Victor Churchill of Woollahra has opened Vic's Meat Market! It's a new butcher and smokehouse joint located at the carpark entrance of the Fish Markets.

They've got all your protein needs covered! On the right side, you have a specialty butcher with huge range from wagyu steaks to ribs and sausages. On the left, they've got their smokehouse headed by the barbeque master Anton. This area has ribs, wagyu brisket, chicken and more! All cooked low and slow in their massive smoker imported from Yoders Smoker in Kansas. I visited Vic's with Chocolatesuze to try some of their delectable smoked barbecue meats.
The chicken wings had an amazing smoky flavour and a nice crisped skin that was so addictive! I don't normally get smoked chicken as it easily dries up in the smoking process but their chicken wings were succulent!
Their pulled pork sandwich ($10) came with a sweet and refreshing mustard pickle slaw. The pork was very tender and fatty. The barbecue sauce was tangy with notes of smokiness. The familiar soft sweet bun handles the whole sandwich well.
The brisket sandwich ($10) was insanely delicious! The meat was super tender, extremely fatty (that way it should be), juicy and packed with so much smokiness. The slaw nicely offsets the richness of the brisket and the barbecue sauce adds a nice tang and kick. It was absolute bliss!
Then I got to try the pork ribs ($40 full rack with slaw and pickles) on another occasion. It was done Kansas style with a dry rub. The outer layer had an amazing sweet and spiced peppery flavour whilst the rest of the meat was tender and smoky.
Vic's Meats is one of those places I see myself going back to a lot in the near future. I would specially go back for their smokin' awesome wagyu brisket! Vic Meat Market, it was soooo nice to "meat" you! Until next time!
