Carv’n It Up, shop 1a 167-179 Tarneit Road, Werribee. Phone: 9974 0661
Werribee Village is one of the older – and smaller – shopping centres in the area.
It has a Sim’s.
It has Chinese x 2, F&C, a chook shop and a place with curry signage that purportedly sells kebabs.
And now it has a brand new purveyor of old-fashioned roasts and accessories.
Carv’n It Up is rather austere in terms of decor but on the evidence of my Saturday lunch-time visit, it is already a hit with locals.
Folks aren’t queuing up out the door but they are coming and going in a steady stream.
The roast theme is delivered via meals, family deals, rolls and a bevy of extras.
I am gratified my lunch is served on good, solid, real crockery and with metal cutlery.
Potential takeaway customers be warned, though – at least some of the to-go meals are served on yukky polystyrene trays.
Roast beef with veg (14.90) does me real good.
The three slices of beef are well done but cut easily enough – though a serrated knife would’ve been appreciated.
The meat serve is very generous – so much so that what at first appears to be a surfeit of gravy is only just enough to make my meal work.
I like the spuds and peas.
But I am enough of a roast traditionalist to find the veg “medley” a bit over ambitious and fiddly – I do not want capsicum with my roasts.
