Boolaroo Takeaway – Under new “IRNCHF” Management

Monday, May 18th, 2015

Boolaroo Takeaway by Iron Chef

My local takeaway at Boolaroo is under new management, but the Iron Chef, (or IRNCHF, according to his numberplates), no less…

As it was a cold, rainy Saturday night, we had to see how he was going!

fish cutlets and chips

$10 for 6 fish cutlets and chips – The fish pieces were really fresh tasting, and while I didn’t like that the chips aren’t the traditional, oddly-cut, fish and chip shop chips, they were cooked well and had the right amount of chicken salt. I just like it better though when you get the little crispies that are tiny and slightly overcooked in the paper bundle!

We also got a Works Burger for $7, but my photo is rather blurry… but the bun was fresh, the salads nice, and the met patty moist! :)

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

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….

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.

Nice to have a laundry, and the hot water in the shower was AWESOME. Could have done with a little soap rest thingo.

Salamander Beach

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

Salamander Beach

The water is so clean here.

Much wading to be done.

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.

Tank Fish and Chippery, Lygon St, Carlton – my first taste of Kosher salt!

Global Atheist Convention 2012 Melbourne

We went to Lygon street in search of pasta, but wound up trying the fish and chips at Tank. And ZOMG I’m glad we did! (aside from feeling weird that I wasn’t at Bateman’s Bay and I was still eating fish and chips. Sokay, though, cos I didn’t end this meal with tea in a paper cup…)

Global Atheist Convention 2012 Melbourne

We got the “Tank for Two” ($26) with one of the pieces of fish grilled for me. Delish! The tartare sauce is amazing, and the calamari has a touch of chilli and is divine.

And, I’ll have to admit that Kosher is not something I’d thought of for salt, being in Melbourne for an atheist convention and all, but David’s Kosher salt is great! Big flakes, perfect on these chips!
