After a really shitty week of work out in Strathgay, I headed in to the city to meet Gustin and Vadge for some food and booze and we ended up at one of our usual smoking section of Mr B's on the corner of Pitt Street & Goulburn Street. The last time me and Gustin were here we smoked so much the bouncer was forced to kick us out much to our absolute amusement.
They do cheapo jugs of cheapo beerz & happy hour drinks deals and they have a bar menu full of meat on a stick and deep fried delights. They also have a full dinner menu of Japanese and Thai food and the last time we were here they had a Thai band on which made me a bit teary hahahaha.
Vadge said I could order for all of us to share so I went for a selection from both menus. Having tried the 'look chin' (pork balls on a skewer served with a chili jam) last time we were here, I got a plate of them to share along with some satay skewers and some soft shell crab sushi too. Then from the main menu I ordered the larb gai which is a traditional thai salad of minced chicken with shallots, chili, thai herbs and plenty of fresh lime served on a bed of lettuce (sometimes comes with cabbage in Thailand and is even tastier), and also a braised duck in a salty sweet cantonese style sauce with chinese greens, and a big bowl of steaming fragrant rice for the table.
The larb gai was definitely the hit of the meal though - it was perfectly spiced and served with plenty of crispy lettuce which was gradually soaking up the juices... $54 for the lot - Bargain town!
