The Foodies had a very late lunch after arriving in Sydney at 9am, going through immigration, baggage claim and customs and then catching a train to Newcastle. It was 2pm before we were able to get a bite to eat: fish and chips from a local store.
The fish was perfectly cooked in a good batter while the chips* were creamy on the inside and crisp on the outside, just as they should be.
*Australian chips are more like US steak fries: somewhat larger.
Lunch today cost Au$5.50 or $4.05 US.
Dinner was with our mother/mother-in-law who had purchased a roast chicken and prepared salad vegetables – iceberg, tomato, avocado and mango – to go with it.
Mother paid for dinner tonight.
