So I live super dooper close to this place and have done so since Dec 08. Everytime I tell ppl where I live they say the same thing… Oh go to The Grand. Its great! And I always keep meaning to but FINALLY AJ AND I WENT! WOO!!!!

Roast Night: Choice of 2 dishes with beer/wine $20
And all the rest of the days its the usual bar food in the bistro bit. Apparently the Dining Room is awesome too.
Anyway…. we went on Monday. I had the Roast Chicken with a panzanella salad (bread, tomatoes, beans, oil. mmmmm). It was sooooo yummy. However, as per usual, I forgot to take the photo. The salad was so yummy and fresh and the chicken had heaps of seasoning. So yum. AJ got the lamb roast with potatoes and fennel. It was really yum too. again… forgot to take a photo. HOWEVER. KK and AlMAX both got a parma which is DID get a photo of…. hahha.. Parma was yum too.
Sunday: Parmas with choice of 5 toppings - Hawaiian, Mexican, Traditional, Bolognese and Meat Lovers $12. Lunch 12 - 3:30. Dinner 6 - 8:30.
So i finally made it to the ‘Spreagle’ as JimC calls it.
Here is a pic. You can get garlic butter, mushroom sauce of pepper. I had mushroom. it was heaps yum. and they pu it all over my chips…mmm… choice of chips and sald/steamed veg. Just my luck i got the smallest steak but it was still totally worth it. Get it in ya.
It is the old Frostbites for those of you who remember those frozen slurpees….i finally went to this place last week. i have to tell you. the service was SHIT! we had to wait for AGES and the guy had the whackest hair. NO THANX. oh and it was boiling hot in there. wtf? so my advice to you is skip this place for pizza and head to Lucky Coq just down the road.
So the deals are:
Monday:Scotch Fillet + glass of wine $15
Tuesday: Curry + pot Blue Tongue $12
Wednesday: Pizza + glass of Stella $12
Thursday: Calamari + pot of Fat Yak $12
The people here are super dooper friendly and the food here is yum. Have eaten here a few times and it is awesome. Good vibe and its so warm with outdoor areas too. The main special here is on Mondays where is is Locals Night so everything except mains are $10 if you can show ID that says you live in Richmond.
this place is deceptive. it looks teeny tiny from the outside but its got heaps of space. some lovely mates of mine live nearby and they go heaps. if they could go and eat there and send me photos that would be appreciated. *hint* *hint*
This is a cute little place. However i did see Dermot Brereton (wait, can I name a celebrity on a blog?) there once which turned me off a little… but that was a weekend and the specials are on during the week….
This pub is on the corner of Swan and Burnley St in Richmond.
pretty cute little old school pub with sports matches etc.
now to the good bit.
this is the specials they have:
Monday: Porterhouse Steak $12
Tuesday: Parma + Pot $12
Wednesday: Steak Sandwich + Pot $12
Thursday: Pasta + Pot $12
Friday: Fish & Chips + Pot $12
Saturday: Burger + Pot $12
Sunday: Parma + Pot $12
so far i have only eaten the burger which was yum. my housemate has eaten the parma which is also yum. only thing is though that the burger only costs $10 normally but I wont let that spoil the whole thing!
