Located between the Eddy Avenue and Chinatown tram stops, it’s an interesting part of the city with about half a dozen pawn shops across the road from each other next to the venue, backpacker hot spots on either side and major junction points to Market City and several key office buildings. As the city is stripped down to its core, the street side benches become only options close enough to dining in as restaurants send us on our way after collecting our orders.
The bamarine always gets my attention from the walk down from Railway Square into the city…
But the renaissance many venues are going through adds a new dimension to the experience of the time. A rediscovery.
Every dish today was either chicken or fish. No pork, no beef as we see the effects on a lockdown interfere with supply availability or as we see the simplifying of menus for fiscal efficiency.
Whatever the reason, there’s now an unspoken appreciation for that struggle which would have already been hard enough when restaurants were full to the brim with customers inside, online and on the phone.
How irrelevant do the old reviews and food critics on the wrong way service staff looked at you, or how long it took for your party to be seated or how a dish wasn’t seasoned to personal preference. We now see the heart and souls of these businesses in the simplest forms now and we forgot about the livelihoods and stories behind these dishes we were casually criticising…
Why does it take the potential collapse of an industry or closure of business to accept the comfort and satisfaction brings without any superficiality?
Plating is a thing of the past for now and who knew how much joy could be carried by one standard 1000mL plastic container. Thick beef junks with mountains of rice to toss through that green coconutty curry sauce!
From the looks of things, the seats may not be available, but the party is still on!
