Oh you'll all be laughing when I retire on my Rendang Pie fortune

ABN Menu

Watching the Brumbies on Friday night would have been a miserable business if not enhanced by friends and Coopers Pale Ale.

But unexpectedly the menu at O’Connor’s All Bar Nun offered a respite from the tedium of Julian Huxley’s ill considered kicking.

Chicken and mushroom pie might seem like an odd curry of the day, but a beef randang (pretty sure they meant rendang) pie with rice and a pappadam baked in? That would be a major advance on world cuisine and make no mistake!

Sadly when my curry arrived it was a watery chicken thing with no sign of a short crust.

But oh the possibilities!

$14.50 for a pie and chips? extortion!

Depends where and what you’ve eaten overseas. I once bought a durian paddlepop from a street vendor in Kuta thinking it was banana. On the upside, I didn’t get the runs despite eating from street vendors many times and walking the take-out pizzas back to the hotel in the rain, through streets with open sewers and floodwaters up to my knees. The ones who got sick had only eaten at nice restaurants and didn’t go for random street wanders.

Curry pie is good. I reckon I could eat that. Except would have to be a vegie curry.

Coopers? Rugby Union? Seems like your meal was the LEAST inferior product in this story.

Although Canberra has lots of restuarants, most of them seem to me to be overpriced with non-existant service, even though in many of them the food is good.

My expectations are now very low. I recently went with friends to a very well known restuarant and it took an hour to get food, wrong drinks, and bloody expensive (over $60 a head for bread, mains, and a couple of wines).

Perhaps eating overseas spoils it for those of us fortunate enough to have had that experience.

Sorry I didn’t get it!
