Deep Fried

It’s not just pubs that go for using the deep fat fryer for meals.

Sometimes I wish any place that serves food have a little more imagination.

Look at this meal I had at the Auckland War Memorial Museum.

Most of the stuff on that platter is deep fried!

Personally I would have liked them to use fresh ingredients rather than processed stuff out of the freezer that is then thrown into the deep fat fryer. Why not take a leaf out of the Spanish tapas cookbook or a Greek meze cookbook and be more creative.

In December 2009 I went to a conference in Auckland in New Zealand. I visited the Auckland War Memorial Museum and wasn’t ¬†going to have lunch there, but did like the sound of this dish on the menu, however it wasn’t quite what I expected or anticipated. As a result I was little disappointed.
