540 On Barkly, 540 Barkly Street, Footscray. Phone: 96872479
It’s taken us a good while to eat at 540 On Barkly since initially covering its impending arrival.
Now that we’re in the house, we’re happy – the long room is a tranquil, nice place to be on a broiling hot day.
One of the walls is adorned with photographs depicting scenes from Footscray’s past.
Some of them have foodie themes.
Can anyone identify where this pic was taken?
Perhaps this one was snapped somewhere around Essex Street?
We keep it simple – and very affordable – by ordering from the list of $12.50 lunch specials regularly posted on the establishment’s Facebook page.
Bennie like his chicken fajitas fine, though as they’re in wrap form they present as a very light meal that seems to disappear in seconds.
Yes, my lad would’ve preferred the burger from the menu proper!
I do much better with my very excellent fish burger (top photo).
The Turkish roll housing it is super fresh.
Fillings are tip-top and just right.
The fish itself – blue granadier – has been simply pan-fried and its taste is delicate yet robust enough for a good flavour hit.
The chips are many, very hot and very nice.
That first photo could be a delicatessen which was next to my father’s business in Leeds st. The delicatessen was a very European one and was called Milecki’s. My father’s business was Kendall Electrics.
