    Eating out in Brisbane

    March 20, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 25 °C

    During our time in Brisbane, we only dined out a couple of times. The most memorable will be a "Gastro Pub" in West End. For anyone wondering a Gastro pub is a place that serves high end beers and food. These guys had 18 different beers on tap. This place is a revamp of a very old factory building. Apparently the part that is now the bar and restaurant is was the main storage for a shoe company many years past.

    The shoes were actually made next door. Since the building does not look like a typical storage building I suspect it was something else before that. The place is called London Fields. Big thanks to family who arranged the evening as a gift to us.

    Yesterday, dining of a quite different kind. We were visiting good friends and conversation drifted as we reminisced about the dining we recalled in our younger days. Chip sandwiches were mentioned and my friend said he had not had that experience for a long time. For me it had been many years. We remembered the white slices of bread, way too much butter to be healthy and a huge stack of chips from the shop. This delight has to be firmly squished down before tucking in.

    The new tiger bread worked well and we enjoyed a trip down memory lane. Our wifes were not so enthusiastic, preferring to chip dip in Mayo and naked chip chomp.
