greek salad, king prawns,chips but no otter. a pleasant afternoon meal

image

The wife and I pass this place every week on our way to to do our weekly grocery shopping.  We generally go early in the morning when this place is closed.  Recently we had occasion to go much later. In fact about 12:45. So we went in on a slightly windy and cold day.  Sat outside because I couldn’t tolerate what passes for music inside.  Seems to be the law these days. An establishment MUST provide intrusive and annoying sound as though everyone else is gonna like that crap.  As a rule, managers and employees never hear what we hear. In fact, they hardly hear it at all.

So we sat outside due to that and also because of the setting.

The Willow Tree is I believe under new management. The plastic tables and chairs are being replaced and the wood deck seen here is new.

Their king prawns are something like $1.60. Each. Had two and the dish comes with a huge plate of chips. (French Fries to us yanks) And they are quite good. Too many to eat there and ended up taking some home. Wife had a generous Greek salad. Naturally I had to try a little.  That’s gonna be my choice on our next outing here.

image

The prawns were overcooked and the meat was stuck to the shell, had to really work to get it out.  One tiny square napkin and a thin one at that. And the paper wasn’t very strong either.  Certainly not adequate for that sort of meal. Which doesn’t mean it didn’t taste okay. It did, but nothing to rave about.

image

Which makes the very long wait for what I got hardly worth it.  From ordering to serving seemed to take forever. But then I suppose even five minutes would feel like that if one is hungry.

image

Are we going back? Yeah. Why? Because I just have to have that Greek Salad, the staff are really nice people, and maybe I will find something else on the menu that won’t disappoint.  AND .... I never got to see the Otter that lives there.

image

Are you ready to order sir?
Yes. I think I’ll have Otter steak with a side of chips and a side order of Greek Salad please. Yes, next Monday would be fine thanks.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
