Andrew’s Choice, 24 Anderson St, Yarraville: Phone: 9687 2419
Plans for a more elaborate and distant post-cricket lunch have been nixed by some scheduling clashes, so we keep it simple, cheap and very close to home.
I know there’s plenty of folks who swear by Andrew’s and their meats, snags, hams and other goodies.
We’re some-time customers only, based solely on their rather steep prices. Mostly frequented for a treat only by us, though I do love their taramasalata.
The Saturday fry-up of cheese kranskys, a close relation to the sort of weekend sausage sizzles offered by the likes of Bunnings, is another matter entirely.
There’s nowhere to sit and no soft drinks available, but the price is right – $4 a pop.
For him, one with Original Chutney and the browned onions sitting to one side of the grill.
For his dad, one with Original Chutney and mustard. The onions look a mite sad-sack to me.
Our lunches are served not in buns but in thin-sliced white bread.
The bread falls apart. The condiments quickly spread to the paper serviettes.
Our lunches are delicious.
Personally, I could do without the cheese.
I know there’s snag purists who think cheese shouldn’t have anything to with kransky or any other form of sausage.
Apart from as an extra, of course.
Bennie loves the cheese. Loves the onions, too.
He loves the way these sorts of snags go “pop”!
A quick stop at the greengrocer and we’re home inside 20 minutes.
