If you actually step inside the Bailey’s Corner arcade from either East Row or Petrie Plaza one finds in the middle the Yum Yum Tree takeaway.
It’s decked out in yellows and browns and is a surprisingly welcoming space.
They are famous for their roast meat rolls and today I had the beef one for $8 (they also do pork).
The roasts bubble away under a heat lamp and are truly gargantuan.
The amount of meat that goes into a single roll is similarly vast. The meat exceeds the bun in volume (let alone weight).
It comes as standard with gravy and salt and pepper. On request they were happy to add mustard at no charge.
As for what it tastes like?
This is basically large slabs of meat with a minimum of packaging to take it away and season it.
If you like large slabs of meat then it is truly superb.
If that’s not your thing, well they do have a lot of other items on the menu.
