Not too sure how widely the advertising has gone for this, but recently in the Holt area I had an advertisment dropped into my letterbox saying that a new chinese restraunt has opened up at my local, Magpies Golf Club – Holt.
The wife and I went up last night, and the first thing I was astounded by was the genuine 90’s prices, most dishes on the menu were only $9.00 ($12.50 if you want seafood).
The food was extremely palatable, and they should be charging a lot more for their food than they are (they are possibly being a bit cheaper because it’s so remote).
If you’re in the Belconnen area in the next few weeks and are hungry, I’d recommend you give it a shot, They’ve also got beer at genuine 80’s prices (indeed a lot of the Magpies Kippax staff drink at the Holt complex when they’ve got time off, a pretty good indicator that they know where the good prices are) and a great sunset view over the farmland and mountain ranges northwards of the ACT.
Thumper – they’ve got chicken schnitzel for $9.00 too 🙂
Everybody else, if you’ve never had a magpies chicken schnitzel, try to imagine 2 flattened chicken’s sewn together, it’s slightly bigger than that.
