Lobster And Shrimp ‘Po Boy’ Dog, 18AUD + Parlour Fries, 7AUD
We were craving for something greasy but fresh at the same time. Parlour Diner seemed to fit the bill because we wanted burgers and dogs that are made fresh to order. Parlour Diner is fancier than a diner. Tuck down to the far end of Chapel Street, Parlour Diner’s main customers look more like the hippie kind. The whole area is dimly lit with a bar area that serves an extensive array of alcoholic beers, wine and cocktails.
My eyes went straight to the Lobster And Shrimp ‘Po Boy’ Dog topped with chimichurri salsa. Once in a while we crave for the junkiest of the junkiest food there is, and boy I must say these deep fried lobster and shrimp were worth all that calories. The lobster and shrimp meat juices were still intact and not dried out after entering the frier. The only downside to my dog was that I wished there were more lobsters and shrimps. I enjoyed my side of fries too, thins are my favourite!
The Captain Burger, 16AUD
The beef patty was from a grass fed Victorian cow. Going upwards, the layer starts with the patty, then the egg, bacon, cheese, pickles, tomato, sweet onions and lettuce. Its a great burger but I have had better. The size would just satisfy the ladies, and not for the big eaters.
Pale Ale Onion Rings, 7AUD
The side of fries were much more worth it than the Onion Rings. For the same price, five measly rings you can’t really compare it to 50 stems of fries can you? I say go with the fries.
I enjoyed Parlour Diner as a whole, and would recommend the Lobster And Shrimp ‘Po Boy’ Dog if you are ever here.
