Wooli part 5… Mongrel Oysters Kilpatrick

Mongrel Oysters Kilpatrick

Wooli may not be home to hipster cafes or trendy restaurants. In fact it’s sole café is only open, and I quote the guy out the front with the sea farers moustache, “Thursdy through Sundy” (I’m pretty sure that guy does the opening hours for the café and restaurant and oyster farm because no one seems to stick to a time table around here), and it’s only restaurant is at the lawn bowls club, operates out of a 2×4 rabbit hutch of a designated service window in a darkened corner of said club, and is named, like all good Aussie-Chinese restaurants should be, Harry’s Chinese Restaurant. 515 more words

More Bacon Week Goodness… Pan de bono with bacon

Doing my bit for Bacon Week

As I mentioned in my last post, it is Bacon Week. So aside from just eating (I really don’t wish to make this task seem menial or mundane, as it is something that always fills my heart with joy) my favourite cured pork product, or quite possibly even my favourite piece of my favourite animal ever, like the shore bound sailor eats the prostitutes vag… i… n… nothing… I shall also be trying new and exciting things with my friend, the bacon. 850 more words


Marinated sardines

I am obsessed with sardines.

There you go. I said it.

That statement is for everyone I hang out with, work with, my family and the old lady down the street at number 42 for being forced to listen to my constant talk about the next meal I’m going to create with sardines. 783 more words


Sri Lankan Pork and Black Pepper Curry

I have had difficulty coming up with an amusing anecdote to go with this one… no stories of drunken shenanigans with carnival folk… no nothing really. 569 more words
