Belco Plagued With Crap to Dine On?

By Ex Warrior - 20 December 2011 59

We took some visitors from Sydney to dinner last night firstly to Jammo Wests where we we’re denied entry as we had rubber thongs on.

Needless to say the previous day we’d been to many places in Sydney in the same thongs but no, not allowed in the pokie palace at

Jammo. Next was an old favourite at Kaleen. More disappointment and marked never to return. Service and waiting times were horrendous.

Is there any decent places to eat in Belco that isn’t Chinese? Suggestions please

Who gives two s***s what you wear on your feet, the color of your money is the same as everyone else’s.

* Ellacure – damn fine sticky date w. Caramel goop – yes, that’s it in the bottom of that Apartment complex – 2/21 Battye Street Bruce ACT 2617 (02)6251 0990 http://www.ellacure.com.au/

* Turkish Pide House, 2 Lawry Place, Macquarie ACT 2614 – (02) 6251 3325

* Rocksalt – 4/78 Hawker Place, Hawker Shops, Canberra 2614 – phone (02) 6254 7865 – A damn fine weekend breakfast.

Clearly the image that interstate visitors have of Canberra & Canberrans is close to correct.
What a bunch of dressed up, feet watching, assumption making do gooders.
As for big Thumper ya best start with reading before opening the trap fella, the restaurant let us in ya spud, it was the pokie parlour that got us and as for ginger pubes mick I was with my family mate, kind of an early Christmas where we wanted a simply meal that wouldn%u2019t cost too much.
Anyway get ya heads up people, up with the eagles not down with the thongs. A pair of shoes has made me all self conscious, feeling in superior to you self made people assesses.
Now im off to put my shoes and long socks on to go to the kitchen for spam on toast.

Did Lewis Carroll write this?

Almost nonsensical.

I think it’s more stream of semi-consciousness.
Lewis Carroll always used beautiful English, even when writing nonsense.
Have to go now, I need to watch some feet. Mmm, feet…

What an odd thread. Pretty much peaked with this masterpiece of literary inspiration, though …

Surely he means Roman sandals and knee-highs? Ironically, no-one’s being turned away at the door for making that fashion statement.
(Full disclosure: I had a science teacher at high school who dressed in this manner. We called him “moon boots”.)

Maybe save up some cash and splash out on a nice formal set of Crocs.

Bahahaha! Love it.

I find it amusing that the OP considers eating at clubs to be good dining.

Excellent trolling, piss-take of a post, Ex Warrior. Clearly a wind up for sensitive rioters.

Thong on.

“do gooders”? Not much of a rant, feeling very let down.

Bye.

When you get back, perhaps you can pop into Rockpool for a bite – make sure you polish your thongs first though.

I am with ExWarrior on this! Whats the harm in going in for a meal while wearing thongs? It’s not like I am jamming my feet in your plate of salad 🙂 It’s only a casual meal! I’ve been caught out plenty of times where I have been out and about with friends, and decide to go and eat, but then get denied because of inappropriate footwear! I say allow thongs in all establishments! It is Australia after all. /rant.

Surely Ex Warrior is trolling?
Most clubs in Sydney won’t let you in if you’re wearing thongs at night either.
And upmarket restaurants there definitely won’t.

Should have just taken them to Subway.

This is why we need better border security. Forget about stopping the boats – stop the cars!

Just go to a cafe or something. The staff are used to bums sitting next to churchgoers so anything goes and you basically have to be naked to get kicked out, and even then the hotties have a good chance of a quick schnitzel first.

Henry82 12:29 am 21 Dec 11

lol, you want a “good” place to eat, but you want to wear thongs to dinner?

McDonalds

Well off you go back to Sydney with your thongs and Spam on toast then………..

EvanJames 11:51 pm 20 Dec 11

“feet watching”. That is easily the most excellent insult levelled at Canberrans yet.

Lots…

Sanur’s (Indonesian)
Rock Salt (Modern Australian)
Mork’s (Thai)
Green Herring (well not strictly Belco but close enough)
Bella Vista (Italian)
Ellacure (Modern Australian/European)

Enough to get started?

+1 especially Ellacure and Rock Salt.

And the odds are thongs are ok because its not the upmarket, well dressed pokie playing fleas keepin the till ringing over
