If there’s one cuisine I don’t have enough of it would Greek, so I was excited to join FCBA at their dinner at Platia Greek Taverna, not only for a night of good food but also plate smashing!
Their plate smashing occurs once a month on Friday nights, and is a fun filled night with performances, dancing, and the opportunity to relieve all your stress by smashing plates on the ground (don’t worry, they’re not real plates,it’s not dangerous at all!).
There’s no shortage of delicious cocktails.
Having spent the first 10 or so years of my life growing up in the west, Lone Star was always known to me as that funky looking house we drove past on the way to the shops. Not that I’d ever set foot in this Texas-inspired restaurant, but I can never forget its unique exterior. So when I realised there was another branch just 10 minutes away from work, I was keen to give it a go.
Wild West Wind Beer Battered Onion Rings ($7.95)
A quick online search tells me that Lone Star was actually once large chain with 180+ stores in the US, now dwindled down to 4. And although Lone Star has also closed many doors in Australia, it seems to be doing better, with some 8 branches in NSW- including the Blacktown branch that I remember clearly.
Saucy Biddy ‘Chicken’ Wings ($9.95 for 6)
