Served on toasted house-baked brioche and topped with a buttery fried egg, this is definitely not your nanna's savoury mince on toast. Sobrasada and 'nduja give grunt to a rich, slow-cooked Bolognese-style pork sauce which is loaded with a little extra chilli for good measure. Fermented red cabbage brings a burst of swweetness to balance the spice. Gauge, 77 Grey St, South Brisbane, Qld. (07) 3638 0431.
