We were in Weipa for Dave’s birthday and we checked out all the eateries before settling on the Weipa Bowls Club for dinner. It was a nice venue with a sports bar, pokies area and the bistro overlooked the lawns.
We ordered our meals and took a seat next to the window. As Dave was chatting on the phone to his sister, who had called to wish him a happy birthday, our meals arrived. Dave’s rib steak was cooked perfectly and was topped with mushroomiest mushroom sauce he had ever seen, came with a salad that was fresh, colourful and tossed with a great dressing. The real highlight was the chips – cooked perfectly so they were crisp and golden on the outside and soft on the inside.
Juz’s chicken parma was a good size but despite being a fat breast, the meat was a little rubbery. It was topped with shredded pizza ham, which was a little unusual but still tasty. All in all, Juz reckons this was the best and worst parma she’d had in a while. While the flavour of the parma and the quality of the chips and salad added points, all of those points were taken away with the rubbery flesh.
