On our big day out North of River we had two very different meals..... both were researched on the net and decided upon before we left home and it's a perfect illustration of the unreliability of peoples opinions.
For dinner we went to The Beach Shack at Hillarys. I think Will's chicken was ok... if somewhat bland.
Kieran feeling ill from an early morning wake up and a full day away from the Wi-fi opted for the Garlic Bread that wasn't. Garlic that is... it was practically tasteless... how do you mess up Garlic bread>
I had the fishermans platter which was over priced, over cooked and totally under whelming.
Les didn't bother to finish his burger- we make better at home for a quarter of the cost.
Merenia had Spaghetti Bolognaise... I think they have used some Heinz spaghetti... and then added mystery meat and then cooked it for a very long time!
Even their chips were yuck.
We left them a poem.
Lunch was a completely different affair! We went to Cafe Elixir in Wanneroo- it was packed... there's a reason for that. It was awesome!
Merenia had spaghetti and meatballs. It was really good and a very generous portion.
The little boys had the kids meals fish and chips.
And chicken and chips. Both super tasty and well cooked.
The chips at Elixir are some of the best I've ever had I'd love to know how they get them so delicious and crunchy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. The sauce is home made too and really yum.
Iced Coffee. :-)
BLT for me... super yum, I wish I could have finished it!
Meatball sandwich for Les. Very good.
And a vanilla shake to wash it down... I like how they bring out the milkshake cup as well so you get the whole shake!
We also got 6 different macarons to go, they were yum!
It was expensive even by Stockley Standards- (there are 6 of us so it's never going to be cheap).
But totally worth it.
