There's a new place in town, and I was keen to try out, as my friend said it serves Deep Fried Golden Gaytime. You read that right, the ice cream, Golden Gaytime, deep fried... well, crumbed then deep friend!
Reading up their menu, I had such hard time choosing just 1 meal. A lot of them sounded so delicious, and I wish I had no shame (and bottomless pit of a stomach and a Speedy Gonzalez metabolism) so that I could order ALL of them. In the end, I ordered their Crab Taco, served with avocado, corn and chilli. I had imagined the crab as bits of crab flesh, however, it came out as soft-shelled crab, nicely battered and fried. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm........... They were so light and easy to eat, that I polished all three in no time at all. My friend ordered their BBQ pulled pork burger, which was served with cringle cut chips and aoli (I think).
Luckily for me, my friend couldn't finish her meal, so I was able to also polish her left-over. The pork was divine! Not really "pulled" as they were more like tiny strips, but nicely marinated and absolutely covered in thick sweet tasty sauce. I couldn't really taste the creamy dressing that normally comes with coleslaw but it went really well with the pulled pork. I didn't try the bread, but it looked quite sugary and buttery. The chips were freshly fried, all crispy and salty. Yum-o!
The Pièce de résistance, which what got me to go to the place so soon, is this yummy goodness. Unfortunately, the Gaytime was a little too melty already as it arrived, however, it was definitely tasty. At $11 a piece, it was expensive, and as my friend put it, "a novelty". But what a novelty it was indeed! I didn't care much for the caramel sauce and crumbs of honeycomb, but the batter and the fact that it was a Golden Gaytime still on the stick, it was so good! :)
The service was impeccible, they were all so friendly and nice. The meals came in no time at all, and our dishes were cleared quite quickly too. I also loved how you order at the bar, instead of a table service because then you can split bills :) The person I made my order with told me that next week, they will have special deals on every Monday to Wednesday. With it you get a specific meal cheaper, as well as a free soft drink - he was so friendly and nice, that he did the deal for me today! Score! :P
I would definitely go back and try their other food, most especially because E loves Golden Gaytime, and I reckon he would like it :) I am also keen on trying their ribs in plum sauce and kimchi!
