Vegetable Samosas - $4.90
This was spiced potatoes and peas in homemade pastry. They were very nice, but very spicy too. They were quite big, so half a one each was enough.
These were really spicy too, but still very good.
Saag Paneer - $9.90
This was the first time I have tried this dish and I was quite disappointed. I will try it again though in the hope that it will be better..
Goat Masala - $16.90

Oysters Kilpatrick - $3.30 each (min. 6)
Naomi and I shared this plate of oysters. I love oysters, kilpatrick and natural are both good. I hadn't had kilpatrick for a long time, so it was a nice change from getting them fresh. Really plump and tasty oysters too, yum.
Grilled Atlantic Salmon w/ crushed Potatoes - $25.50
The piece of salmon was huge and cooked nicely, but i would have liked some sauce to come with it, cause i did find it a bit dry. The potatoes were to die for, so tasty. I could have eaten more of that!
Grain Fed Beef Sirloin on roasted pumpkin and red onion w/ Shiraz jus - $32.50
Steph got the steak, which looked nice, but would seem more suitable for a colder night. We also got a side of chips and rocket and Parmesan salad which were both $5.50 which is great value!
Affogato - I think about $12
It came with some chocolate mousse and a shot of frangelico. Steph thought it was one of our desserts and just started eating the mousse! The mousse was good though!
Crunchy chocolate brulee w/ peppermint ice cream - $13.50
This was a bit different from what we were expecting. Inside the brulee it was more like a tiramisu texture. Was delicious though. The peppermint ice cream was the best. The first bit that i had had a big chunk of chocolate in it which just melted in your mouth!

4 coupons - $10
Another thing that i saw while wandering around was the scallop and noodle salad with pork belly and you get a cocktail with it, from Boathouse on Blackwattle Bay. I thought that was a bargain until i saw it. Luckily Mum got it before I did! So I was on to find something else and felt like something light after the Arun Thai meal, so I thought Oysters!

Dad finished with these rice paper roll type things from Prasits/Northside Thai. They were filled with pork and prawn and noodles, and they were absolutely delicious.
4 Coupons - $10
Mum finished her savoury items with this sampler plate. I am not too sure where she got it from, but as she doesn't like beetroot she gave me the item with beetroot. It tasted really good with the sweetness of the beetroot and apple and creaminess of the feta.
1 coupon each - $5

Medium Greek Salad - $9
First to come out was our greek salad. You can't go to a greek restaurant and not get it, it is of course the best salad ever. Look at all those different colours and flavours in there. Yum! How good is feta cheese, well how good is cheese in general, but feta is definitely my favourite. Has to be good feta though, not the plasticky feta that you sometimes get in take away salads.
Look at that colourful dish of fish roe. It's making me hungry now. This was nice and thick and creamy. It came with some fresh bread to spread on, but i was spreading it on everything!
BBQ Octopus - $13
Now this is where the photos get a bit blurry. It could have been the wine, it could have been that i ddn't set the camera up properly, who knows all I know is that the food was good. You could really taste the chargrilled flavour of the octopus. It was also served in bit sized pieces which was great, cause nothing is more attractive than having a octopus tentacle sticking out from your mouth. After a while these became a bit tough though, so best to eat them early.

I don't really know Newtown that well, although there are heaps of places that I would love to try out, so I told Frankie to pick a place and he chose Mamma Maria. He had been there the week before with his parents and said it was really good. Also the movie finished about 9pm and this place is open until midnight, so we didn't have to rush our dinner either.
Frankie said that we had to get this for an entree which i was happy about, cause I hadn't eaten brains for ages. When I was little and living in Albury there used to be this sandwich shop called Yums which we used to get sandwiches from all the time and my favourite were the brains, avocado and bacon. So good, anyway these brains were delicious. They were in a creamy tomato sauce with red capsicum and onion and garlic. Can't remember how much they cost but the food here was very reasonably priced.

For Father's day (yes I know it was a few weeks ago...) I met up with Mum and Dad and we headed down to Canberra to visit my sister and her husband. Instead of celebrating father's day on the Sunday, we decided to go out for a nice meal on the Saturday night instead. Now I used to live in Canberra, but that was during my Uni days in which we didn't frequent many restaurants, so Laura had the job of booking the restaurant.
For main course I got the salmon. I am not a big fish fan for fear of bones, but i love love love salmon. This also came with mussels which were the most beautiful mussels I have ever had. Normally when I eats mussels I find them too tough and stringy, but these just melted in your mouth...yum. One thing I have to say though is I did find a bone in the fish, which got stuck in my throat! I panicked a bit cause I have never had a bone caught in my throat before and thought i was going to have to rush to hospital or something (yes i am a bit melodramatic..) but mum and Teighe just told me to eat some bread (although i was so full it was an effort to eat) which got rid of it thank god.
Can't remember what type of fish this was..
