LUNCH 31/10/07

Roast pork salad from Bourke St Bakery, Surry Hills

After yesterdays salami based disappointment, the good doctor Marty Slammin' called Bourke St Bakery earlier today and found out todays salad: roast pork.
Our mouths salivating for the entire 8 to 10 minute walk there AND the entire 8 to 10 minute walk back, we opened our plastic containers back at the office and seriously did not say a word for a further 8 to 10 minutes.
This fantastic salad combined a generous amount of thin, juicy pork slices with crunchy green beans and slaw, beetroot, corn kernels, sweet nectarine and something pickled, smothered in a vinagerry dressing that seemed to yell "Hey, cafe on Crown St with a Lemon on the roof: FUCK YOU!".

8.5 out of 10


We realized we'd been all quiet on the podcast front (the last thing we put up was a video of Muscles pretending to be interested in CD's being made), so we called up all our favourite DJs and asked them to make us a mix. The we realized that we know like thousands of DJs so we thought "hey dudes let's make this shit happen weekly!".
So if you click HERE you'll hear the first of the new weekly modcasts, this time by our good homie Radge (pictured above, mostly naked). Over the next few weeks there'll be mixes by folks like The Bang Gang, Pandemonium Jones, Nick Catchdubs, Spruce Lee and seriously I haven't I thought that far ahead!!
So yeah click HERE for some of that good spooky goodness, here's the info for Radge's mix - just in time for Halloween!!

Les Nuit Des TraquƩes aka The Night of the Hunted
A Halloween Mix by Radge

Radge is this super cool guy with a beard and glasses. I'm sure you know a lot guys like that but this guy is different. He's the kind of guy who'll invite you over for spaghetti bolognese and after being there for ten minutes he'll make you go to the supermarket to buy pasta because he forgot to. But you know what? You don't even care because the spaghetti bolognese is that good.
And so is this mix, a particularly haunted mix of tunes Radge has put together for Halloween.
If you like what you hear head over to and offer Radge a Macy's voucher. If you live in Sydney you can see him every week in the flesh at Club 77 for a new night he's running with Spruce Lee called KON DING. If you are Radge you should've invited me over for that roast you were cooking on Sunday night. What the hell dude seriously.

LUNCH 30/10/07

Grilled beef salad from that cafe with the lemon on the roof on Crown St, Surry Hills.

After getting to Bourke St Bakery only to find that today's salad was a salami salad (we were hoping for lamb), myself and the good doctor Marty Slammin' wandered over to Crown St to see what meaty salads were on offer when we found a cafe with a large paper mache lemon out the front, hovering dangerously over the pavement.
Reading the menus displayed helpfully close to the counter, it quickly became clear that there were three salads to choose from; grilled haloumi, grilled chicken and beef, also grilled. I had enjoyed the haloumi salad at least twice before however the sun was up and Marty and I needed meat so we ordered the grilled beef.
Ten minutes and nine dollars fifty (each) later we were presented with two white cardboard trapezoids and a set of plastic cutlery. Upon our return to the office we opened the boxes and were pleased with the amount of meat on top of the mixed greens. Also noticeable were small slices of capsicum, some cucumber and two thin lemon wedges. Always out to prove he's a dickhead, Marty added crunched up pork cracklins to his salad in what was sure to be the dumbest thing he'd done that hour.
The beef itself was as tasty as it was thinly sliced, and as salty as it was a little overcooked. The greens included a nice amount of rocket, perhaps too much cos lettuce and, unfortunately for all involved, that brownish lettuce that tastes like ass. I believe the capsicum was a great addition however i was indifferent to the fairly wet, tasteless cucumber. The lemony oil dressing that engulfed the salad gets two thumbs up.
All in all, I wish I got a sandwich.

5.5 out 10
(Marty gave his 6.5 out of 10 largely due to the pork cracklins)
