Great community event
Whilst strolling through the festival it was hard not to feel compelled to try the yummy smelling BBQ sardines and meats on offer. Alas my stomach was already full from a quick bite at Silvas for some Portuguese charcoal chicken ($4) and a Portuguese tart ($2) from La Patisserie — the two most Portuguese food items I seem to only know. The event looked like lots of fun filled with many locals and I was really thinking they'd be a cheeky Turkish Gozleme stall somewhere amongst it but not this time. Although there was a Poffertjes Dutch Pancake stall run by Chinese which made me laugh — what's Dutch pancakes got to do with Portugal? I also spotted a Seafood Paella stall which seems to be becoming just as popular as the Turkish Gozleme at festivals — last time I tried it at Fair Day.
PROS: Family friendly, free entertainment
CONS: Weather permitting, limited parking
MUST TRY: BBQ sardines next time
Poffertjes Dutch Pancake stand — HEHE
