Time To Eat, 123 Nicholson Street, Footscray. Phone: 0405 526 729
For as long as I can remember, 123 Nicholson Street has been occupied by a chicken shop.
Has it ever been anything else?
In any case, these days it is something to behold.
Time To eat is run by husband-and-wife team Harera and Lageal Amea.
He boasts Lebanese heritage; she, Indian background.
Backgrounds of their staff members range through Lebanese, Nepalese and Fijiian.
The UN ain’t got nuthin’ on us!
Another cabinet boasts a handsome range of Lebanese-style pizzas and pies.
I take a spicy potato and a lamb pie home with me; they’re excellent.
At the front of the shop are Lebanese sweets.
The chicken here come in varieties such as lemon and herb and tandoori.
My half chook, tabouli and chips costs a top-notch $16 with a can of soft drink.
But even that doesn’t phase, such a nice time am I having.
Otherwise the chips are hot and crisp.
