    Talk to Brian, and ask about the great craft beers on tap. Lamb chops were amazing, and the firecracker pizza has a habanero oil drizzled on it......yum

    Plonk is essential to Oak Forest and has a great beer and wine selection. Meatbals, thai curry mussels and hangar steak all merit repeat visits. [Eater 38 Member]

    Although you wouldn't expect it from a wine bar, Plonk has one of the best bacon cheeseburgers we've ever tasted.
