Barty returns; Serena no threat? Osaka to exit early?
Delicious.The bakery in drouin next to the post office does the passionfruit vanilla slices perfectly. Wife's been going to the physio near it and grabs a couple occasionally for after dinner.
I can imagine you would have been almost in tears from that. I know I would. On a drive, buy a bit of a treat and that's what you end up with. Bastards.Had an absolutely putrid one down on the peninsula a few months back. Tasted like they made it with Parmesan cheese.
Timboon bakery is ok, the Cobden one is better.Delicious.
The Timboon bakery used to do the pink icing version like I posted above. They went OK. They did cream buns as well back in the day. Cream buns are alright but you can’t beat a snot block.
I hope old SpiderBurton22 can tell us if the bakery is any good down there these days. It’s been a while since I was down that way - last time i was there I got my picture in the paper (and it was nothing to do with horses).
OK - I do consider myself quite an expert on snot blocks. Its a simple science.
I love a four n twenty at the footy - seem to take on a different taste, but buy them elsewhere and they are rarely as good. I'm a fan of square pies as they are easier to eat, but shape matters much less than taste. Had a lot of great pies - the pies at Segefredos in Heathcote are sensational and owned by a great North Melbourne man. Try one if you are passing through (that's all you would normally do in Heathcote, pass through).
Clarkes pies from Mortlake. Best in the South West. They do round and square, I prefer square, sauce optional.
Hojuman - managed to find the satay you mentioned at the Asian Supermarket on Broadway Reservoir. If you like Indonesian food that is their specialty. Worth checking out. I will try the satay tonight and let you know what it is like.
They are good. Avoid on a Saturday though, queue for 30 minutes to find out they're all out of whatever you want.Rutherglen Bakery.
It's almost worth driving there to get one.
