'Closer each day..... home and awayyyyyyy' - this weekend I was up at Palm beach - yes this is the same place that everyone's favourite Aussie soap is filmed. Unfortunately they weren't filming on this day so we missed out on seeing and buff beach bods, but as a consolation, we got to have brunch at the uber cool Boathouse at Palm Beach.
Rocking up around 11am, the place already buzzing with patrons. It's grab your own table kind of place where you order at the counter, grab a number and the staff bring out your food. It's also fully licensed so feel free to order a cheeky dozen of ciders or two.
Be warned that on weekends this place is absolutely chockers. The line for food was literally out the door the whole we were there and although the food didn't take tooooo long to come out, if you're not the patient type you will be in trouble.
The kitchen is bustling with staff and dishes are being pumped our fast and furious styles, but there is still a bit of a wait - especially if you go at peak times.
Bucket of prawns with seafood sauce and sourdough - $39 - the most simplest of pleasures. Fresh chilled prawns. Super fat, super juicy. Dipped into housemade tangy seafood sauce on a hot summers day. Can not go wrong.
View from the deck as we munched on our prawns
Beer battered flathead - $29 - Crispy yet moist morsels of fish flesh served in a dim sum steamer. Housemade tartare with a bed of thick cut, twice fried chips that were crunchy yet soft on the inside.
As we left, the courtyard tables began to bake and the line still snaked out to the curb...
