Where carnivores unite
Listen, I need to tell you about Squires Loft, Essendon. I recommend that any meat lover who wishes to eat at Squires do the following:

a) Detox for at least a week ahead of your visit
b) Go there hungry. Really hungry

Squires Loft is not the place you go to stare your date in the eye. It's where you go when you want to get down to the bone (see what I did there?) of serious feasting.

Their portions promote gluttony but no one is judging you except the top button of your jeans.

Their beef and pork ribs are in competition with each other for best tasting ribs ever, probably some of the best ribs in Melbourne.

With thick cuts of meat, there is always a risk that the meat will be cooked with a disrespectful amount of heat and you will end up with a piece of rubber on your plate. I have to give it up to Squires Loft for living up to their claim of being "The Steak Specialists". I am always here for a place that does one thing very well, rather than trying to do most things and ending up mediocre. Medium rare means medium rare.

This steak with blue cheese sauce is the stuff of dreams. I would write a love song to this combination any day of the week.

If meat is not your thing but you want to impress a carnivorous person in your life, fear not.



There are a few other seafood options that I quickly glossed over, because when you visit a self-proclaimed steak specialist, meat is the way to go.

If you can eat here and still have room for dessert, I have unlimited respect for you and probable a little worry, too.
