I’ve just moved to Canberra and quite like it… except for the take-away and home delivery choices (or at least those I’ve found so far).
Why does Pad Thai cost $16.50 (Lemon Grass)? In Sydney $12 is expensive. Same goes for Indian food… curries at $17-20 is a rip-off for take away. And why no decent kebabs in the city?
Why does everything shut at 8:30 or 9pm? Where can I go at 10 or 11pm to get dinner (please don’t say Maccas)?
Who will deliver for free to the inner city? How do places like Asia Noodle House and Pizza Gusto survive without offering delivery? And does nowhere do online ordering?
But if not I reckon there’s a huge market down here for an enterprising chef to set up a proper home delivery business – online ordering, simple but generous portions, 6pm-1am every night.
