My Top Eats of 2018

Hello there! Well, this Sunday I am nominating my best eats for 2018. Now, whatever I may be, it’s fair to say I’m not really a ‘foodie’ – and I don’t really review restaurants as a matter of course. But continuing on the theme of ‘top…. Of 2018’ I’ve decided to focus, however briefly, on food.

KP Heritage Haveli Restaurant – Tandoori Chicken

Fort from KP Heritage Haveli

I’m a fan of tandoori chicken. Conversely, I am NOT a fan of very hot, or indeed mediumly spicy, food. So thankfully the places that deal with tourists regularly in India, will do your meals to your personal taste in ‘spiciness’. This finally revealed to me that the chilli/pepper/spicy element of all tandoori chicken I’d previously had was not necessary! Still with a great tandoori flavour at my guesthouse in Jodhpur, Rajasthan this was without a doubt the best tandoori chicken I have ever had! With a wonderful backdrop as night falls of the fort, the restaurant at the KP Heritage Haveli deserves praise. If you do you’ll find the tandoori chicken soft and full of flavour.

Seasons Restaurant – Slow Cooked 12 hour Lamb Shoulder

Noosa has plenty of restaurants and they are all pretty expensive, and so was Season, by the beach. But no more so than any other and we checked reviews for it and they were good. As we did for a number of other places before walking Hastings street and basically looking at every restaurant we could find.

There’s nothing worse than paying for an expensive meal you didn’t like. The slow-cooked roasted lamb shoulder however was exquisite. The potatoes were pretty good too. $76 as a meal for two wasn’t too bad (AUD) and there was more than enough for both myself and my wife. The meat was cooked such that it fell off the bone, which I think is what they were going for. Hence it was pretty succulent and delicious. Of course I can’t comment on the rest of the menu, but this dish was a standout. The crumbed calamari was the best I think I’ve ever had too – that was the entree.

Interestingly – honourable mentions go to the RACV Resort’s restaurant (also in Noosa) and the Monica Restaurant in Jaisalmer, where again I had a particularly good and not spicy Tandoori chicken.

And there, just two on my list, but these are the ones that stood out for me. Have you had some outstanding meals this year? Please do comment – and May the Journey Never End!

  1. Same, same. Not really a foodie, but every now and then a food post works wonders! I have a blogging friend who puts a food post in every single blog post he writes, in his experience it increases readership! Have yet to try it myself, but have noticed any food post I’ve written does do quite well!
