Too much tucker in Canberra restaurants?

By johnboy 22 September 2008 25

The Herald Sun’s Chris Wallace has found an un-named restaurant critic to slag off Canberra restaurants in comparison with the glories of Melbourne:

    A national restaurant critic has just marked Canberra restaurants down for not quite meeting Melbourne’s pre-eminent standard. Serving size was the damning evidence.

    Every food snob knows the implicit fine dining equation: small serves signal high quality. Too much was slapped on the plate in even the best national capital restaurants, the critic said, for Canberra cuisine to be taken seriously.

Your thoughts?

To many restaurants in Canberra and way to many serving cr@p. Yes Melbourne dining is far better than Canberra, that’s becuae the locals won’t patronise places that don’t make the grade, unlike Canberrans who think if it’s edible it’s acceptable. Not sure how you fix that though?

WTF??? Makes a Today Tonight segue look smooth as a freshly licked plate from Central Cafe.
For what its worth, in my experience size is irrelevant, quality of the produce is number one, what the chef does (or doesn’t do) with it is number two.
Many here seem to be well travelled and I’m sure that many have had amazing meals that cost F all but were prepared simply and with care.

What a knob. Where’s the culinary delight in paying $100 for a meal and going home hungry?

Pile it up I say…

Thank god that food critic didn’t visit the eateries of Queanbeyan. He’d have died in horror. They have to put the food in layers, as it won’t all fit on the plate otherwise. To get the chips you have to burrow under the schnitzel.

if any restaurant ‘critic’ measures the quality of the establishment by the serve size, then they should f*** up and die and immediately drop such an outlandish sobriquet.

Hear! Hear!
