CARGO BAR PIZZA LOUNGE
Hobart and Surrounds, Tasmania

Top10 Image
Follow the milling crowds to Cargo Bar Pizza Lounge in Battery Point for tasty pizzas like you've never had before. It seems the kitchen has taken the most popular multicultural restaurant dishes and desserts from around town and replaced the plate with a pizza base. The best place to enjoy one of their cheesy creations is with some liquid magic from the bar, then perch on a stool beneath the al fresco umbrellas.

PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS

The humble pizza has apparently been around for over a thousand years. Now Cargo's chef, the very talented Simon Townsend, is set on scrambling our idea of just what a pizza is. While his bases are not too thick or overly doughy, his wood-fired oven is hot enough to nicely puff the edges and, while there are the usuals like Hawaiian, Margherita and pepperoni, what does one make of a hoi sin duck pizza? Or a baby abalone pizza with croutons? Or octopus salsa pizza, sticky pork pizza or tandoori chicken with rice crackers pizza? Oven even a salt and pepper prawn pizza, chocolate truffle pear pizza, apple crumble pizza or Pinot-poached pear with honey cream and star anise pizza?

It seems Townsend has taken the most popular multicultural restaurant dishes and desserts from around town and replaced the plate with a pizza base. And he's hit a gold seam, for the restaurant has seen a mad buzz since it opened in mid-January this year. The kitchen opens onto Salamanca Place, placing the milling crowds at the alfresco benches in sight of the action; there's a small, more mainstream menu for diners at the tete-a-tete tables and cosy lounges inside, a good cocktail and top-shelf selection and an interesting wine list with sensible pricing that encourages a second bottle and a return visit. There's also a good gelati selection to finish.
