SMK Southern Meat Kitchen on Tuwharetoa street is Taupo’s funkiest BBQ concept restaurant. With a unique wood smoker imported from America they produce mouth watering meals with an emphasis on low ’n’ slow meats.

Think juicy pulled pork, mouth-watering beef short ribs, tangy sweet coleslaw or cheesy barbecue bacon mac’n’cheese. Wash it down down with their own locally brewed Escape Brewery craft beers and a unique selection of ryes & bourbons.

If you've got a hankering for some good ‘ol meat at your own location, Southern Meat Kitchen also have a foodtruck, available for hire at events, festivals weddings and parties.
