australia day at euro lounge (Shop 21/2 The Piazza, Castle Towers
274 Old Northern Rd, Castle Hill)
australia day! what better way to celebrate a public holiday in Australia where we commemorate the arrival of white settlers on the First Fleet in 1788 by eating its MASCOTS
Euro Lounge has recently had a change in management and when me and noods first came after the change, service was inattentive and food extremely mediocre but a couple of months makes all the difference in the world and the food was pretty much spot on and the service was polite and friendly.
heh check out the complimentary meat pie we scored:
tasty mmm its been ages since ive had a meat pie
Smoked Salmon & Sour Cream Terrine $15.90.
mmm smoked salmon was silky smooth and i liked the sour cream however it was a tad too much but the honey seeded mustard sauce had a light tangy sweetness which prevented the dish from being too heavy and i looooved the salmon roe mmm bubbles of sweet briny goodness
Crocodile Carpaccio with Lemon Myrtle Oil and Bush Tomato Confit $21.90.
noods likes eating strange animals. because hes strange . the croc didnt taste like anything specific. kinda like when you eat abalone or sharks fin and its the soup that it comes with which makes it tasty? yeah
Wagyu Beef Rump $49.90.
the menu said the wagyu had a marble score of 9 and while it was incredibly soft and juicy i dont think it was that high because me and noods have eaten better and tastier wagyu and 9 is the highest it can get. and there was no way in hell i could have eaten that whole plate! before the new management it used to be $75 for that plate of wagyu shared between 2 people!
Wattle Seed Crusted Kangaroo and Bitter Chocolate Sauce $28.90
noods finished this in like 3 mins. not that it was small more like because he liked it. alot. altho not the chocolate sauce so much because he doesnt like it when his flavours are mixed hehe but the kumera mash was fantastic!
i have no idea what this was called something something chocolate parfait with peanut crunch? um. but it was sooo good the chocolate was smooth and a very good combination with the whole peanuts on the base of the tart. i couldnt realli taste the sauce which was a shame because it looked so preetty but the pistachio bits were brilliant!

another day of eating! me and noods went to chatswood (i was looking for a bead shop) and of course had to go to beard papas since its been a while and theyve got new products!
the left one is a beard papa eclair which is a normal puff smothered in dark chocolate and filled with their signature vanilla cream mmm and the right is a normal puff filled with vanilla cream and dude i swear theyve grown in size they were huge!
mango ice shower! this was so refreshing and tasty! the ice shower consists of finely shaved ice drizzled with all natural mango sauce, topped with premium mango chunks and finished off with a light milk topping mmm so so good
and then lunch was at parramatta at ramen kan
free chilli chicken and rice!
and a wander thru the asian grocery stores unearthed this:
‘Chambungau Samanco’- a goldfish-shaped sandwich containing sweet red bean syrup and vanilla ice cream lol i saw this on waffles blog and was instantly curious as to what itd taste like. the outside tastes like those kiddie cones you get at wendys you know, plasticish, barely edible, but still makes you want to nibble on the edge? but it was interesting and ill most likely buy again becos i think it was onli $1.10 haha cheap!
