Fork on the Road at The Depot...
Ma and I went down for lunch, and I took my camera along.
Burger Theory was opened for business, there was already a queue forming... and there was always a line the whole time we were there.
Fortunately, the more people that seemed to turn up the more chairs they put out, which was good.
Archie The Pastizzi Bus... I've had the kind that you get from the freezer section of the supermarket, but I've never had fresh ones...
They're good... golden, flaky and filled with a range of things (mine were traditional ricotta and chicken with mushroom)... hopefully Archie starts appearing more often.
Sneaky Pickle tasting plate, as she's never had them before.
I actually wish that they did things in the tasting plate scale more often, they'd be so much easier to eat, and I could probably be tempted by a range of smaller options more frequently.
The Little Van That Could for some refreshing beverages.
I went with their Ginger Ade while Ma opted for Lime Ade. Weirdly I got more of a ginger hit when I stopped using the straw... but it was very tasty.
And the chicken was worth the wait... it just looks like, you know, chicken... but it was really tasty and full of slightly spicy flavours.
Tacocat and pick up one of their tasty little tacos...
This time it was the Chicken Mole... mmmm, taco goodness.
The Macaron Man to pick up some... well, macarons.
She grabbed me a lemon one and a peanut butter too... normally I'm not a giant fan of the macaron, and these did end up a little bit crushed by the time I ate them, but they weren't bad... especially the lemon one.
Damn The Man Night Market was also running... the "night" part notwithstanding, obviously... and Ma decided that she need to have one of these porcelain doll head planters for her desk at work... this one was called "Scout" (it had the nicest plant, to be honest)...
She does like to freak her workmates out...
Our last stop was Loca Pops... I went with the Rockmelon and Lime, which was full of lime zest and only got stronger as it went along. Ma decided on the Chocolate and Chilli which she said was subtle to start with, but the chilli kicked in as she went along.
I have very much enjoyed all of the Fork on the Road gatherings... I'm definitely hoping they continue or return in the future.
