Newcastle seems to be slowly embracing the Vietnamese Pork Roll, aka Bahn Mi, and this yummy one above is from the Cardiff Bakehouse in the main street of Cardiff – fresh crusty rolls and tangy soy make it divine for $6. They also do a Mega Egg and Bacon Roll for $5.50 with two eggs and heaps of bacon to keep the tradies happy!
I’ve had a few breakfasts out lately, and these two were great – the scrambled breakfast at the top from Belmont 16ft sailing club and the Breakfast Brucetta from Custom Espresso Speers Point (sans eggs).
Back on the Hello Fresh boxes recently, with a number of Asian recipes like the udon noodle soups to keep my nose running, and the pizza to keep to vege count up! You can still get $35 off your first box by using my referral code R3CDUQ :D
And also on the veges – this Mezze Platter from Badde Manors in Glebe :)
Had anything pretty to eat today?
Arriving in Tamworth late Friday afternoon, everyone tired from work.
Pizza it is!
Tuscan Pesto Chicken and Bacon.
What’s your go-to lazy meal?
I feel like such a wuss, wearing a beanie in Newcastle in May, when Canberra is my beanie and scarf collection’s spiritual home.

You mean I have to drink wine everyday with these glasses? Good thing they’re my sister’s! We moved her into a new place with the kids, and she fed us wine and pizza…
Double sausage pizza and a free dessert pizza – Black Forest crumble – from Crust. I didn’t have the sweet one but the savoury was awesome.
Slowly slowly, cafes and restaurants on the Central Coast and Newcastle and venturing beyond having a single vegetarian item on the menu, and giving options for those who don’t want meat in every meal. Admittedly, most are still full of cheese and/or mushrooms (which is okay until your vegetarian date doesn’t like mushroom, or your friend is vegan) but they are getting there.
Here are a few (cheesy – so glad I’m back on the dairy, though my waistline might not be) vego options I’ve had over the past couple of weeks.
From The Spot on Beaumont Street, Hamilton: Corn and Feta Fritters with Mushroom, spinach and tomato relish. Oh so yum!
From Cafe Pennoz in the Tuggerah Business Park: Vege Nachos. I had time to kill at work one day so I treated myself.
From Hungry Wolf’s Pizza, Terrigal: Dom’s Special (Cheese, tomato, mushrooms, onion, artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes, basil, olives, garlic and chilli (optional) – minus the mushrooms and chili. It’s always a nice little delight to get artichoke on something. Way back when I worked in Tuggeranong (not to be confused with Tuggerah), there was a cafe downstairs at Homeworld that sold an amazing vegetarian foccacia with roast Mediterranean veges which I loved… and made me realise that I did like artichoke (from a jar anyway!).
Been a couple of years since I went to Blue Water Pizza, but it was time to go back again. They have gluten free bases for a $5.20 surcharge, but they are nice bases!
Started with a garlic crust. Which initially came out with cheese, despite a specific request for no cheese.
Vegetarian – Mykonos Pizza
Chicken and Prawn – Rio Grande (they were meant to bring out sweet chilli sauce and sour cream for it, too, but that didn’t arrive until we were halfway thru >:|)
Supposedly a greek salad. But it had sundried tomatoes instead of fresh ones, and some other roast veges from jars, and no red onion. It was.. weird. Oh and the plate was cold, so I think it had been in the fridge plated up all day ready to plonk on a table…
They did pass the soy latte making test this time though! :p

Entries close midday, Wed 9th May!
Why are all my dinners at Darling Harbour ‘quick’ ones?
Oh well, The roo pizza at top I’m told was delish, and my seafood gluten free pasta went down well, as did this different take on chicken parmi.
