The Daily tucks in, but barely makes a dent

Sunshine Coast Daily - - NEWS -

TO THE mother of my best mates, please look away now, your sig­na­ture pork belly and mash might just have been trumped.

It was lucky that I and Daily pho­tog­ra­pher Patrick Woods had empty stom­achs, be­cause boy we needed them.

The Bavar­ian Sun­shine Plaza knows the mean­ing of “hearty”.

In a tour of the Sun­shine Plaza’s new 400-seat restau­rant, this hun­gry pair tucked into a tra­di­tional plat­ter-for-two, (which re­ally means four).

It was served up as a pork knuckle on mash, pork belly, haus sausages, sauer­kraut, red cab­bage and bier jus and of course, an ice-cold Lowen­brau on top.

The pork belly was melt-in-your­mouth type stuff, topped with rich gravy and snap­pable crack­ling. For a good 20 min­utes we felt like Ger­man kings, barely mak­ing a dent in the feast. I’ve only been to Mu­nich once for a Con­tiki tour, and this was as good as that. While it didn’t have the drunken ya­hoos like most Ger­man beer halls, this was a place for fam­i­lies and there were plenty around.

But I dare say come World Cup time, this place will throw one hell of a party. To my three best mates’ mother Jenny and her Ger­man hus­band Wolf­gang, I must apol­o­gise, I’ve at the very least found a ri­val to your fa­mous pork belly.
