What is in the Porkanara?

The Porkanara is made of two gigantic aspects:


that! First, they brine the pig leg for around 24 hours. After this, it is rubbed in our spice rub and smoked for an additional 10 hours. This transforms the meat into the softest porkiest experience ever! The pork is so soft you can easily shred it into the carbonara, share it around and have the whole experience be a family affair!

The whole smoked pig leg is actually created when our Chefs at Third Wave and actually takes TWO WHOLE DAYS TO MAKE! Picture that!

Look at this Porkanara beauty!


Oh, and then there’s the Carbonara of the Porkanara! This is a silky, creamy carbonara that pairs perfectly well with the pork!

Third Wave has become a religious experience on the Melbourne restaurant scene. Since opening in 2010, we have cemented a reputation as a great neighborhood cafe with a loyal breakfast and lunch crowd. People come from far and wide to enjoy our exceptional coffees and vast breakfast & lunch menu. Then by night, we transform into a bustling BBQ joint, inspired by the classic American smoke houses of the deep south. Today we are proud to be recognised as one of the best American BBQ experiences you’ll have outside of the US.


Third Wave Cafe started as a trendy inner Melbourne café with an aim to grow and so we did. After 9 years, we are one of Melbourne’s favourite American BBQ restaurants with a huge emphasis on slow-smoked meats and burgers.
