Hometown Kitchen

A few nights ago, Jaymes and I felt like going out for dinner! It was a public holiday so not many places were open, and after a few phone calls we ended up at hometown kitchen. It was about a 20 minute drive, which took us to a bit of an unknown area for us. We were surprised when the GPS directed us down some little suburban roads, and we ended up at a tiny little shopping centre. The best part was there was a lady dressed as a bee next to the restaurant haha!

As we walked in, we were immediately seated by a really friendly lady. We were worried about our seats as they looked uncomfortable but they were actually 100% more comfy than they looked! We had a cute little table for two. 

The first thing we got was the prawn toast (so cliche haha). It was so good! It tasted like it was house made with juicy prawns in the middle and crispy toast and sesame seeds on the outsides. Best prawn toast we've had.

For our mains, we started with sizzling garlic lamb. It was really nice! Tender lamb, delicious sauce and the veggies included were cooked perfectly. It had so much lamb in it, much more meat that you'd usually get in a meal like this!

The next main we got was the spice pork belly. AMAZING! I love pork belly, and once again this dish was packed with meat. It was pretty spicy, but not overwhelmingly so. In this photo it looks like it was just full of onions but it really did have lots of meat in it!

We also had the special friend rice. I think it's hard to make fried rice stand out but I must say this fried rice had big juicy prawns and massive chunks of meat, very nice!

This was a lovely night. It wasn't as cheap as I was expecting, and as it was a bit of a drive from where I live I'm not sure if we'll be back. However, it was delicious and if I'm ever in the area I will be back for that pork belly for sure!
