beef balls and flathead

Remember those springy beef ball noodles you'd get at Jln Alor ? Well it's possible to make them at home!

 These were made using the recipe from here. Basically it's beef mince minced even further with baking powder and other stuff, frozen and simmered.
 They really were indeed springy! A pack of 12 of these from an Asian grocer here would set you back around $3.60. we made a heap and put them in the freezer.
 Lunch at Flathead in South Hobart today : they have a lunch special with 2 courses for $20, above is the breaded calamari which was one of the starters. really nice - the tartare sauce was the best. I only wish the serving was a bit more generous!
 and the thai fishcakes with chilli sauce. Tasty, but not springy like the traditional thai fishcakes.
 The mussels [main] were perfectly cooked, succulent, and quite a generous serving, with a lovely creamy sauce.
 The grilled black travella however was overcooked and tough, and the green beans were a tad undercooked [i guess some people like them raw and crunchy...] well at least the chips were good - crisp on the outside and soft on the inside.
The best part for me was dessert - warm sticky date pudding with butterscotch sauce and ice cream - what can I say? there's nothing not to like about this!
