We headed out in the sunshine to the East Brunswick Club (280 Lygon St, East Brunswick), and managed to score ourselves a couch with a half decent view of the TV - which was a considerable victory considering the place was absolutely heaving with footy fans! After settling in we ordered up drinks and perused the lunch menu.
Mr B, Kate & I all opted for the steak sandwich ($19), which would not normally be my hangover cure of choice, but it really did sound too good to pass up! And boy was I happy with my selection when it came out.... Everything you could possibly want in a pub meal - a super soft roll loaded up with tender, juicy angus steak, bacon, cheese, beetroot, lettuce, tomato and mustard, along with a generous side of fat chips.
Hil decided to be adventurous and went with the Nacho Style Parma ($20), which was an enormous chicken schnitzel piled up with black bean chilli, corn chips, cheese, jalapenos, sour cream and hot sauce served with fat chips and salad on the side. Probably not something you'd want to eat every day... but it certainly did the trick for Hil who promptly finished it off!
We all left feeling a little bit too full, but I think it's safe to say that I will definitely be returning the the EBC. The steak sandwich was by far one of the best pub meals I've eaten in a long time and the bar was relaxed and spacious with a nice outdoor area out back. Seems like a good place for a sunny weekend afternoon beer to me...
Oh, and I have to apologise for the sub-standard photos, I'm blaming the hangover!
