2/20 Derrimut Road
Derrimut VIC 3030
Hello everyone (:
It's been a bit since my last post hasn't it?
Well today is probably my most unique post.
Today's post is sponsored by 'Menulog - No.1 for Online Takeaway'.
For those of you who don't know what Menulog is, it is a company who has set up their services to allow everyone to get food easier through an online website. Through the website you can find your local restaurants, their menus (with accurate prices) and what time they're open from and to as well :)
Payment through this is easy as well, since you have a range of debit/credit cards while also the option to pay in cash.
Okay this all started when I got an email about two weeks ago from Menulog's company saying that they liked my blog and would like for me to write a post about a local take away restaurant in my area! (OMG right? :O)
To be honest.... at first I really thought this was some sort of scam but it really wasn't so I was over the moon to be given this opportunity ~
They gave me a voucher and I ordered some lunch for me and my friends.
The place is called Derrimut Sea Catch.
Their menu had a good range from burgers to flakes to chips to vegetarian options too. It was a well balanced menu which had a good appeal to most people :)
Well excited? I was ~
Free food is always nice but to able to blog about it too? Now I'm having fun haha
Burger with the LOT! :)
Most fish 'n' chip places have it and it's one of the things that needs to be tried.
Given the time it took to be delivered to my house caused it to cool down a bit and also most of the juices were at the bottom by the time I ate it, overall it's a nice burger which filled me up ~
This is the 'Pack for 2'.
What you get:
- Flake x2
- Dim Sims x2
- Potato Cakes x2
- Calamari Rings x2
- Serves of Chips x2
That's a lot of food. :9
The flake was 3-4 parts flake to about 2 parts batter which is fine for most people. I would have like the flake to have a slightly less batter but that's my preference.
Dim Sims and Calamari Rings were what you'd expect so not much to comment there.
Potato Cakes are a treat, never too much potato for them :)
The chips were what I expected, crispy at first but as it cooled down.. they got soggy.
I'll admit that this was not a fine dining meal nor was a meal like the rest of my posts.
It is however a decent meal to fill you up on one of Melbourne's ever changing weather days.
There were a fair amount of things that could of been better, however I believe most of those things wouldn't be a problem if I had gone to the restaurant and ate it there.
That's not to say, I didn't like the Menulog service though. It was simple to use, very quick and everything happened accordingly to what was stated. I ordered my food, the order went through, I got an email from Menulog confirming it and then I got a text from the store telling me what time my food would arrived. I will use this service again most likely.
Menulog Service: 9/10 (Will explain the missing point in a moment)
Okay the missing point from the Menulog service is from the slight bug they have in that if you switch out of the app on your phone, it resets your order. It's still in basket but say you had to look for a voucher code at checkout (like I did), it'll put you back to their menu. My only issue.
For the price.... it was $36 all up. Which is a slightly higher price I would like to pay but the portions were pretty good.
Another sad fact is this place isn't on Urbanspoon! :(
I've tried to add it in and if it goes through, there shall be a link added~
IMPORTANT! READ!I'm glad to have your attention now. This part is the most important part of the post.
What is happening is that, if I can get enough interest then Menulog will be giving me a voucher to give away to you guys! If the giveaway happens then I shall setup some seperate accounts that you all can follow and get entries into the draw (twitter/facebook/instagram etc)
So please spread the word! I really want to do this for you guys! Would be so awesome :)
Finally this was from the West Sunshine Take-Away restaurants for Menulog and this was restaurant Derrimut Sea Catch.
Okay this was suppose to be a short post but turned out quite long ...
Until the next craving kicks in,
