What's the general feeling here about mango and any of beef / duck / chicken / pork / lamb / fish? - ruling out mango on pizza 🍕
Green mango goes with anything. Cooking ripe mango is a waste of ripe mango. But raw it is delicious in a salad with any meat. The only cooking of mangoes should be mango chutney and it goes with everything as well. What a fruit.

What’s that hiding in my Wagyu Beef Burger?
At least they had Beetroot.

View attachment 1285372
Don't like burgers with beetroot as it makes the bun soggy and the taste is not to my liking. The cheese should be sitting next to the burger and the white stuff sitting above the beetroot would be quickly turfed out if this was my burger. Also not sure the bun would be to my liking. Hope you didn't pay too much for it.

And the bacon looks raw. And don't got me started on "wagyu burger". If the beef is high quality, why the hell are you mincing it and making it into a patty?

I have been to the last three protests……….the one three weeks ago I dragged the family along.

I would say from being there that the majority of people are protesting this ridiculous Bill. That is my reason for going.

Now for the crowds if you‘re interested.

3 weeks ago approximately 20,000

2 weeks ago close to 100,000

Yesterday was amazing…………..I would say 150,000 +

A video on YouTube by Arrow clearly shows how huge it was but it doesn’t satisfy the people who follow MSM and think all protesters are extremists…………yesterday was the most diverse crowd I have ever seen.
Please explain the ridiculousness of the Bill, citing actual excerpts.

Weird that nobody has cared about the 'tyranny' of the neighbouring LNP legislatures that operate similarly to how we would under this new Bill. How curious.

Ah, memories.
The Americans on tour in Europe would always be first to the breakfast buffet and complain about perfectly cooked bacon as “raw”.
If it didn’t have copious black bits then it was considered raw.
For the record, the bacon was perfect.

The way of the burger, apart from the fish and chip shop, these days is brioche bun.
Most pubs or restaurants do it this way now.
The cheese stopped the beetroot from making the brioche soggy. I was able to hold and consume the burger without the bun disintegrating.
It was maybe the palest pineapple I’ve ever seen.
the entire meal, two mains and a shared tasting plate was $60. Plus $40 for drinks.
Good meal, good pub, goodnight!

In my defence, I haven't eaten any bacon other than American streaky style bacon in a decade. I've forgotten how to cook Australian bacon.

I used to think the same until a long time ago when an American woman cooked me a hamburger in London (don't ask for all the details) - salient point - she used "prime Idaho beef" - it was a delicious hamburger.

The best breakfast buffet in Europe used to be at the Stockholm railway station.

Gotta put the secondary cuts somewhere. Wagyu burger sounds better than wagyu blade/Chuck/shin.

But given Wagyu (not a fan personally) is all about texture and “mouth feel”, there is no benefit of wagyu over other breeds once it is ground, although the fat content probably helps.

Good for dickheads in the pub thinking they are getting premium product.
