There are only two situations in which it’s forgivable to wear leggings as pants in public. The first is, if you’re actually a child under the age of ten, and the second is, when you’re planning on eating more food than regular pants can handle. Clad in our finest leggings, my date and I excitedly checked out The Norfolk’s new Sunday offering: Redfern Asado, where we spent hours hanging out in the sunny beer garden, drinking Pancake Old Fashioneds ($16) (Black Barrel Rum, smoked maple syrup and chocolate) while feasting on delicious South American meats. With meats being sold by the weight, we decided to get a platter and try a bit of everything. My date raved about the Picanha ($9) (beef with coffee and brown sugar), while I inhaled the Annatto Pork Ribs ($8), pausing occasionally to throw back some Coca Cola rice and habanero corn. Sundays (from 12pm) are now sad days to be a vegetarian.
