Papi Chulo on Manly Wharf

Located metres from the water, Papi Chulo is a smokehouse and grill that will change the way you think about barbeque.

We smoke succulent marinated meats over wood for at least six hours to create an intense pit barbeque flavour that’s straight from the American Deep South.

But that’s not the end of our love affair with the Americas. We’re also kicking in some classic South American dishes like ceviche and empanadas, alongside perfectly charred seafood, fresh summer salads and a killer cocktail list.

Fantastic ingredients and big flavours take the lead at Papi Chulo. This is a menu that breaks all the rules.

Papi Chulo BBQ platter

We cook our meats ‘low and slow’ – hot-smoked over wood in a special oven for at least six hours. Papi's recipes originate from the Deep South of the USA so they’re the real-deal American BBQ. The result is meltingly tender meat that falls straight off the bone. Perfect for sharing, if you don't devour them first yourself.
