Squid Club Meetup
'The Best Salt and Pepper Squid in the Universe' is a bold claim but it's one that Get Big Little Kid and our good friend Pete who discovered the place more than 10 years ago stand by when they compare this dish to all other comers — it's the only dish they order at this place. This is my second visit since they introduced it to me about 2 years ago and I'd rank their Salt and Pepper Squid in my Top 5 favourites in Sydney. Also on my favourites for this lightly battered style is Pho 236 in Newtown and Palace Chinese Restaurant in the city. The cheap looking restaurant has been around for about 40 years and it sure doesn't seem to have changed since it opened. Don't expect much as some people have noted on Eatability, especially warm service and romantic lighting and atmosphere. Each bite sized piece of squid is lightly battered with a nice crisp while remaining tender inside. You'll find it topped with a decent amount of fried chilli and spring onions and if your lucky little tiny batter crispys — order it with rice and vegetables.
First (& only) rule of squid club is ... you must only have squid w/ rice & veg on one plate.
