Where to find deep-fried Mars Bars in Canberra?

By 15 May 2012 34

Apart from making your own, does anyone know any cafe/restaurant/caravan that sells them?

The G-Spot no longer exists (the only place I knew that did sell them).

“The G-Spot no longer exists”

Surely you aren’t referring to the G-Spot in Gungahlin that is open:

Wednesday : 6pm-12am
Thursday : 6pm-1am
Friday/Saturday :6pm-3am

The G-spot never existed, it is a myth!

Many years ago I recall having one at the fish and chip shop at the Lyneham shops. Many many years ago though.

@BobGrrl: that is now a turkish pide / kebab shop. I don’t think Mamas (the name of said takeaway) has been open for 7 years or so!

No way Mamas would have made it through the recent health blitz, funny just thinking about it

The Fish Shack in Civic do them. They’re good, in an artery hardening kind of way….

What do you particularly like about deep-fried Mars Bars, OP? I am asking quite seriously.

Try Palmerston shops, they are apparently the ones that started making them in Canberra…

if you bring your own Mars down to Flatheads and offer the boss a couple buck they might do it for you.

+1 Lyneham Shops takeaway, again many years ago, but I recall a sign saying that they would pretty much batter and deep fry whatever you wanted.
A friend and I travelled at lunchtime from Barton to the fabled establishment to sample their wares. We didnt bother to return once our hearts started beating again.

The G-Spot is open, it’s just that men have a hard trouble finding it and won’t stop to ask for directions…

Deep fried mars bars are amongst the most disgusting foods in the world.

Palmerston takeaway hasn’t made them in years. The G spot van is still in the car park at the golf club, so I’m assuming it’s still operating.

Chapman takeway at the shops does, my overweight neighbours always get them, I don’t see the appeal but then again I have never had one, rather not have a tub of lard sitting in my stomach all day.

I’m sorry, my school used to feed us disgusting food such as calf brain and tongue on a regular basis for lunch, and I can say without hesitation that deep fried mars bars would have been immensely welcome in the place of that awful offal.

Had no idea they were here. I only ever saw them advertised in Glasgow fish n chip shops.

I’m surprised the Burns Club doesn’t feature them, given the origin of the delicacy.

I’d say the Burns club is more interested in the kilts & bagpipes aspect of Scottish culture rather than the more current expression of scottishness involving welfare dependency, smack, glassings and deep fried mars bars.

I would gladly have brains and tongue over a mars bar any day.

Can you still find that stuff in Canberra? it’s my favorite soft-drink but only Woolworth used to have it and I haven’t seen it there in ages, I think they must have dropped it.

Woolies in Woden Plaza have it, not in the drinks section though. its up the back of one of the isles near the fresh juice (with all the other British goodies)

Just checking out their menu for dinner tonight; they do deep fried Snickers too. I don’t care too much for Mars, but love a good Snickers, so might have to try one of those.

The deep fried mars bars from the g-spot in gungahlin closely resemble a sausage roll at first glance. It’s got layers of flaky pastry surrounding a hot mars bar, and its dusted with icing sugar. It’s pretty good but I’m not sure that it’s actually deep fried….??

However Steve and his awesome team at the Fish shack in Civic rock the deep fried mars bars!! ^-^ Light crunchy batter surrounding a gooey melted mars bar, served with cream and ice cream… It is delightful!! :) Much ? to these guys and their tasty food :)
P.S. you should try the sweet potato wedges while you’re there, they’re kind of amazing ;)

Apart from the deep-fried Mars Bar … have you ever tried the “Pizza Crunch” in Glasgow … take one slice of frozen pizza, dip in batter, deept fry… is it any wonder they have the highest rate of coronary disease

G Spot is still operating. They also offer deep fried KitKats as well.
