Lunch @ The Press Club

I was right to think Paalo was a bit jealous of my solo lunch at the Press Club so it's no real surprise that we've come here for Sunday Lunch.

The structure of Sunday lunch has change somewhat - you don't need to choose the number of courses anymore.

The meal begins with soup:

a hearty bowl of lentil and vegetable soup.

It is quickly followed by this large platter of assorted dishes

Clockwise from bottom right: Bastourma (air dried beef with "curry" spice notes - served warm), Marinated Olives, Red Capsicum Dip, Greek Salad, Pickled Cabbage.

a large cast iron pan of Spit-roasted Lamb with Potatoes

and simple roasted Chicken pieces.

Dessert is served with a nod to the quantity of food that preceeds it - it comes packaged in a take away box!

Inside the box we had, honey soaked Greek donuts, chocolate semolina slice and baklava.

If you are looking for a decadent Sunday lunch that won't break the bank, then it's very hard to go past this feast from The Press Club.
