Love Sorrento, not the flies over the meat... :(
Butcher must think he's only got desperate convicts and early settlers for customers - we certainly didn't go in - brought our rib-eye from home - had to razz up the estate agent to get someone around to clean the bbq in holiday rental though - whatever happened to customer service? sigh 😥

There are plans to put some more tourism facilities right there, including a jetty. I fear this will encourage people who aren't good in the water that this is a good place to swim. Even though the Portsea Swim finishes there, that is with guards, etc. On an outgoing tide the current can run at over 5 knots. An inexperienced swimmer who jumps off a jetty and gets caught in that better hope there are some boats between them and the Heads. Next stop King Island!

He's a good bloke and a good butcher. The flies were just clever.

I was wondering why that beach hasn't been made more accessible. Beautiful location... too bad about the rip. :eek:

And swimmers on the other side of Point Nepean should watch out for Chinese submarines looking for overconfident Prime Ministers. Dangerous waters down there. :eek:

Don't think I've ever seen anyone swimming there.

Where Holt went in is such a dodgy spot. It’s even crazier because he was experienced. I can only guess there was ego involved because he was the only one who had access to it.

Btw, there is no excuse for a dirty bbq.

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.

I would have ordered it even if had said “secondary NSW cow” or otherwise known as “Gladys burger”.
Was in the mood for a burger. Almost had the southern fried chicken one instead. But that’s not a burger.

The peninsula is a gorgeous part of Victoria and an important natural resource.

The local businesses are fabulous and staffed with nice people. Resilient organisations that have survived 2 years of hell.

We need to support them.
