Woolloomooloo Bay Hotel: Seafood Platter and Christmas Crackers (16 Dec 2009)

2 Bourke Street, Woolloomooloo NSW 2011

Christmas Cracker Time!

It's now become a bit of a tradition for me to buy some Christmas Crackers for the work Christmas lunch get together and unfortunately the cracker jokes don't seem to get any better this year but always provide an innocent chuckle. We noticed on the specials menu a tight-ass tuesday which would have been good if we'd planned to come the day before to save a few bob. I'm feeling adventuress so have ordered the Seafood Platter, which basically means I'll be getting more than my fair share of the 'yellow and deep fried' food group. All washed down with a refreshing James Squire Golden Ale which is also part of the yellow food group. I would have liked a bit more salad on the side and forgo one of slim battered fish fillets which was more batter than fish. I didn't mind the chips and prawns although couldn't really finish the salt and pepper squid — I reached my limit of yellow.

Wishing all my readers
a very Merry Christmas and
a safe a happy holiday time :-)

James Squire Golden Ale $6.80
