We went drove to Hobart via a little place called Sorrell, and diverted into Sorrell Fruit Farm and whoa, happily, they had strawberries for us to pick! We are so glad!
Each of us paid AUD6 for the plastic punnet, and we could pick as many as we wanted.
We also each had a sandwich - and I think the toasted turkish bread sandwich was the nicest. No photos, we were too busy gobbling it up.
Dinner at Mures Seafood Restaurant
Mures at Elizabeth Pier, is one of the famous landmarks of Hobart. Everyone, and I mean everyone, comes here for seafood.
We were contemplating whether to go upstairs to the 2nd floor - Mures Upper Deck for dinner - which was classier and more private, but in the end economic sense took over and we opted for the Mures Lower Deck (1st floor) which also serves seafood but is more bistro-like and we order at the counter and collect our food when it is ready.
Mures Seafood platter - collection of cold seafood and pates. I think the platter cost about AUD38. We couldn't finish it and kept the cubes of fish for the next morning to eat with porridge. and that was really quite nice cos the fish was salty.
Our half dozen fresh oysters - AUD 5.50. They were nice, but the oysters at lunch were better.
Our cooked oysters with garlic butter - forgot how much they cost but these were quite nice too. the oysters here are very large, so they are very juicy.
Chilled rock lobster with fries - a bit small, and nothing great.
We also shared a grilled salmon.
And a tasmanian blue cod? Not quite sure what this fish was but it was nice and oily and tender and it was supposed to be the most expensive fish on the menu.
We ordered a bottle of sparkling wine but didnt finish it. We brought it back but didnt drink much either. Cutie likes to participate whenever we clink glasses though. We dont want him to be left out so he uses his water bottle instead.
Oyster Shooter! I bought this for DH as a surprise because he mentioned that he had never ever had one!
Never?! oh that must be rectified! So I bought this for him.
