Belconnen Soccer Club McKellar

Belconnen Soccer Club has never featured on Master Chef

Bron and I watch food TV like a lot of Australians. We’re currently enjoying Heston Blumenthal week on the Australian version of Master Chef. As you’d expect there are numerous mentions of Chef Blumenthal’s prime restaurant, The Fat Duck (which is coming to Australia soon). Having heard and read stories about The Fat Duck, we figure when it comes to Australia it’ll be out of our price range. On Friday Bron invited me to dinner with her, and her son Max, to the Belconnen Soccer Club for a ‘consolation’ dinner ๐Ÿ™‚ 

This isn’t the first time I’ve dined at the Belconnen Soccer Club with Bron and Max. The first time I had a steak and prawns (surf and turf) which wasn’t too bad but I eyed off someone else’s seafood basket and thought that would be what I’d have the next time.

Bron wanted an Asian dish and chose honey chicken while Max chose his favourite, viz., calamari rings and chips.

Max said the chips were better than the Canberra Southern Cross Club Jamison but the Calamari rings at the CSCC were better.

Bron said her meal was fine and on a par with a Chinese takeaway meal.

The seafood basket had prawn twisters, prawn cutlets, calamari rings, crumbed fish and some chips. It was okay. Not the worst I’ve had but no where near the best.

For dessert Max and I had fried ice cream. Max chose strawberry topping and I chose caramel.

I didn’t finish mine. It wasn’t very good. The batter was too thick and hadn’t cooked long enough. I wouldn’t eat fried ice cream here again. Max didn’t finish his either.
