IF YOU’RE heading to the Tewantin Noosa RSL for lunch or dinner, make sure you take your appetite.
The carpark has reopened, the menu is varied and the servings are big.
The December special is battered, grilled or crumbed sweetlip served with bamboo panko charcoal crumb prawns, chips, salad and sauce ($25.90 for members and $2 more for non-members).
While the black charcoal coating on the prawns looks like they’ve been left on the grill far too long, the taste is simply divine (and no char whatsoever).
This lunch special is a large serving, as we said, so unlike the decision we made to have an entree as well, you will probably be satisfied with the main meal alone – perhaps followed by a coffee and cake in the coffee shop.
The first entree we sampled was duck and barramundi spring rolls served with dipping sauce – four large, crispy springs rolls with a side of fresh Asian-style salad.
Our second entree was the flash-fried club calamari, which came sitting on the most delicious bed of rocket, cherry tomatoes and cucumber with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar dressing. You can have it as a main meal for an extra couple of dollars.
