A Whyalla Institution

The genius that is the Bottle And Bird.

I can’t recall seeing a combination bottleshop and takeaway drive through anywhere else, but this Whyalla institution thrives, even on Show weekend.

Coffee Vanilla Slice

Trialing the coffee vanilla slice from local shop Sugar and Spice.

Coffee cream and icing balances nicely with vanilla custard and three layers of light flaky pastry. Goes well with a long black coffee on a cold afternoon watching movies.

I think I may have another one of these someday.

Tiny Pancake

Scaled-down pancake.

Other than that my whole eating life seems like I’m always fasting.

Of course, I grew up eating pikelets. Pancakes were some exotic novelty.

Serious About Pizza – Adam Hills

My family are serious about pizza.
I could happily eat pizza every day of my life.
This story by Adam Hills was featured on our local ABC radio station a couple of Saturday mornings ago.
The clip features on the website of the pizza store in question, so I think its legit.

’Straya In A Snack Biscuit

It’s hard to think of anything more idiosyncratic that cheese and Vegemite flavored Shape biscuits (made in the classic style with the flavor that comes off on your fingers, none of this baked inside nonsense).

They’re even shaped like little Australian map outlines. I assume Tasmania is meant to be included on the bottom right of the Shape.

Taste is vaguely cheese with yeasty overtones.

Australia, you’re so fine, you’re so fine you blow my mind. Australia! Australia!

Tacosaurus Rex

I’m not sure if national taco day is a local observance, or one that is conducted in different nations.

Anyway, in honour, here is Tacosaurus Rex.
