Salt Meat’s Cheese is awesome. There’s no getting around a venue that celebrates cured meats, cheeses (apparently eating cheese extends your life) and salt and all the finer things in a gourmet’s life. SMC is already this large warehouse space that you’d love to wander around and peruse in joy; Oh hello 3kg jar of Nutella. We attended the launch of their new The Pizza Box. Well, starting as of the time you’re reading this, The Pizza Box is live in store. A custom built woodfired oven that’s been shipped all the way from Naples is ready to go and SMC is now open every day from 6pm-10pm for dinners. What to expect? Woodfired pizzas and their signature black squid ink pizzas with lobster and then some.

The Pizza Box combines traditonal and contemporary toppings to give diners a taste of modern pizzerias out of Italy. Options include prosciutto and chorizo, as well as premium ingredients like Tasmanian smoked salmon with gorgonzola, walnuts, capers and rocket (check that menu pic). More than Pizzas, they have entrees and plenty of dessert options. There’s a special on their online ordering store where you’re able to get 2 of their pizza Margherita or San Danielle for $30. The Pizza Box is gonna be huge and its always good to find reasons to pop into Salt Meats Cheese. 3kg jar of Nutella anyone?
