Clubs, bowlos giving fancy eateries a run for their money


You don’t always need to fork out big dollars for a delicious meal at a fancy restaurant.

Bowling clubs and RSLs on the Northern Rivers are stepping up their game big time, offering good food at good prices.

Here are some of our top picks:

 

The Bowlo, Bangalow

 

Curried mussels with flatbreads and nigella seeds at The Bowlo, Bangalow.

 

It’s all about fresh food and the family-friendly vibe at The Bowlo. Some of the favourites on the menu include the crispy pork belly burger and salt and pepper squid with garlic, onion and coriander crunch. The prices are low, and there’s a huge enclosed grass area for the kids to run around, as well as a playground for toddlers.

 

Brunswick Heads Bowling Club

Open every day for lunch and dinner, the bowlo at Bruns is an unexpected gem. Talented head chef Jeff Thode creates blackboard specials every day, along with the $12 lunch specials, and there’s an extensive menu. Every Wednesday night is Italian Night, where you can choose between four authentic Italian dishes for just $9.50 each.

 

Byron Bay Services Club

The club offers two popular dining venues, Cafe on Jonson and Bistro on Jonson, with fresh offerings from head chef Teaghan Peddie. The focus is on local, quality produce. Try out the soft shell crab sliders and the lamb ragu rigatoni. They also have a good pizza menu and kids meals are $7.50.

 

Mullumbimby Ex-Services Club

Head chef Lenny Ransome is getting plenty of accolades for his work at Societa Bistro. He has experience across a variety of cuisines, but Societa is an Italian-inspired restaurant which also caters to the classic club scene. The spaghetti marinara comes highly recommended, and we’re also looking forward to trying out the other pasta dishes on the menu.

 

Ballina RSL

The emphasis is on quality seafood, salads, pastas, steaks and kids meals. The prices are good, and even better for members, who get discounts at the restaurant as well. Try out the fried squid mango salad or the Tasmanian salmon tagliatelle. For a larger, spicier meal, the chicken parmageddon has Frank’s hot sauce, Salumi chorizo, pepperoni, Daly’s Butchery smoked leg ham, mozzarella and fried chilli.

Albury eateries Indian Tandoori Restaurant, The River Deck and Taco Bill gain excellence awards | The Border Mail


coronavirus,

AFTER a year like no other for the hospitality sector, an Albury restaurant is taking solace in a prestigious statewide award. Indian Tandoori Restaurant claimed the award for Indian/Subcontinent Restaurant, NSW Regional in the Restaurant and Catering Association Awards for Excellence recently. It is the sixth time the restaurant has won the award. Indian Tandoori Restaurant co-owner Manraj Bhullar said it was a welcome result after a tough year for the sector amid the coronavirus crisis. Mr Bhullar said the business had endured the national lockdown followed by the border closure. “It has been a tough year for restaurants since March,” he said. “This award is a credit to our staff who are the backbone of everything we do.” IN OTHER NEWS: Together with his wife Naziya, Mr Bhullar opened Indian Tandoori Restaurant in Dean Street in 1998. Specialising in north Indian cuisine, the restaurant introduced Sunday buffets to feature south Indian cuisine about a decade ago. Mr Bhullar said the popular buffets were on hold amid coronavirus restrictions. “We hope to introduce them again when the restrictions are over,” Mr Bhullar said. “We’d like to thank the people of Albury and Wodonga who supported us. “Once the border closed we really struggled between the 8th of July and 23rd of October. “We didn’t know we had such a strong customer base from Wodonga; once the border reopened we could see the difference. “We have only just returned to offering lunches. “We are grateful we had an understanding landlord and for Albury City’s support.” Together with Indian Tandoori Restaurant, Albury eateries The River Deck and Taco Bill took out awards in their respective categories. South Albury venture The River Deck claimed the prestigious award for Best Breakfast Restaurant, NSW Regional. Long-running Albury restaurant Taco Bill gained an honourable mention in the Mexican Restaurant category. The Restaurant and Catering Association awards have 280 independent judges nationwide.
