Gluttony @ Newy Burger Co

Newy Burger Co has moved west along Hunter Street, and is now inside The Cambridge Hotel, but they are still selling their awesome burgers, chips and desserts, delighting the locals.

“Date Night” (aka my sennalink day) saw us glottoning down on these, waiting for the storm to come in. Above you’ll see Bruce’s Bar Beef Burger ($10). Bruce describes this as a “supreme BBQ cheeseburger experience” with its amazing patty and spicy jalapeno white sauce.

I went the “Stocko” ($10) – chicken, coleslaw, cheese, rocket and aoli. Quality ingredients to make this the only burge on the menu you can’t get gluten free.

Stocko money shot – *drool*

We talked ourselves into the “Dirty Fries” ($8) that were on the special menu last week – chips with two cheeses, bacon, cajun spices. So very naughty!

We washed all that down with an Apple cider and an Asahi from the bar ($14 total)…. before psyching myself up to gorge down the Jersey Milk Soft-serve of the week – a well balanced salted caramel ice cream with Belgian Waffle bits and chocolate sauce ($6)

See that topping? Looks like a puppydog in a food coma, I’m told. Which is how I felt at the end!

MOney shot - Greek Lamb Burger $18
Eggplant, zucchini, lamb and minted feta stack

I was skeptical of the ability to surprise someone with a large group dinner (30 people) for their birthday. Especially when her husband, parents and brother were already at the restaurant when I arrived, but it worked, and Brown Dog did ok at being able to service our large group – a couple of forgotten drinks, and a little scattered at which burgers came out when, but they got the orders RIGHT, and everyone seemed happy with their food!

Wedges wtih bacon, cheese and sour cream
Wedges with cheese, bacon and sour cream… full on!

For starters, my table ordered some wedges, and haloumi bites. The wedges were VERY cheesy and creamy, so went a long way. The haloumi was GREAT – soft and not too rubbery!

I ordered the “Get the Greek” burger, which was a great lamb pattie, with veges and feta. I couldn’t taste the mint that was meant to be there, but it tasted great – unfortunately the second half of my burger had the bun go a little soggy on the bottom… not a trouble since I was so full from the meat and the chips that came with each burger!

Burgers @ Munchies Sandwich Bar, Belmont

Popped out for lunch today, and ended up in the main street of Belmont…

Munchies Belmont

How cheap are these burgers? I got the “plain” beef burger for $5.50 (below) and Bruce got the “Malibu” gourmet burger with a home made chicken schnitzel for $10. Standard salad toppings were a given on both and the meats were awesome :)

Weekend Getaway at the Bay

oct2012 310

A weekend getaway, just up to Port Stephens for a couple of nights. Sun and sand, fish and chips, rest and relaxation. Much needed, and well overdue. Over too quickly. Here are some snaps

Bub's Seafood, Nelson Bay

Now, Bub’s Seafood claims to have the best fish and chips in NSW for like a million years running. I so don’t think so. Give me the Esplanade Takeaway at Warners Bay any day. This fish was boring and the chips also…. boring!

Colonial Ridge Resort, Salamander Bay

We stayed at Colonial Ridge Resort (I believe the fact that there was a tennis court made it a resort?). Huge 2 bedroom cabin thing, with equipped kitchen, decent bathroom, and tiny tv.

Bed was comfortable enough, though on the hard sign for little princess and the pea here….

Colonial Ridge Resort, Salamander Bay

No oven, but stove, microwave, kettle and all the pots, pans and so on!

Kids’ room. I slept one night in one of these. And stole the pillows for the night.

Lost Rish for a few hours, after a noice sleepin on Saturday. Spent the morning wandering around Salamander Bay, getting sunburnt :/

The water is so clean here.

Lunch was, of course, needed at some point, and when Rish got back we headed into Nelson Bay to Flipped for some burgers.

Rish went a lamb burger.

And I did too! (note the gluten free breadage). Mine was Moroccan. And better :p

Sanook Thai Salamander Bay takeaway

Dinner in front of Toy Story 3, Thai from Sanook, Salamander Bay. All of the food was wonderful. Great Pad Thai, chicken in the smokey satay was excellent, and the fish cakes were yum!

(did anyone else find Toy Story 3 a little scary???? We followed that up with Die Another Day. Hilariously terrible.)

And awesome date and banana loaf for me. I asked, and it seems the bakery at Anna Bay makes a great range of gluten free loaves.
