Too bad about the Deschutes, but it still sounds like a good place to eat ... em ... except for grass-eaters.

Checked at a large Dan Murphy outlet down there as well. No luck, but the bloke did say he been receiving a few enquiries and might have to put it on their stock list.

Just look what you have done!

An Oregon accent is plain ol' 'Merican but with the sound of rain falling on the roof. :rain

Seeing the Steak House menu make me want to go to Texas De Brazil. The salad bar is great with great baked potatoes, but once you sit down, you see these Brazilian looking guys in goucho outfits walking by with skewers full of meat. If you see something you like, they will put a few slices on your plate. When you finish that, flag down another guy and he will slice you off another piece of meat. In one meal, I had every delicious meat I could ever think of. They just kept bringing it. It was expensive enough that we'll only be able to go on special occasions about once/year, but well worth it. There are several locations across the US.

Sounds like great concept! No wonder it costs a small fortune with what must be high labour involvement.

They sell it all by the pound.

"Texas de Brazil meats, sides and salads are available for take-out by the pound."

Take-out :bgrin (It's take-away, America)

Nah.

When you sit in the restaurant it's a set price of about $45 US for dinner.

$25 if you only eat salad.

I DREAM of finding a hostelry that will serve a decent BIG pie with great pastry and an enormously flavorsome filling, meat, herbs, onion etc.

At Westfield Marion I had a Vindaloo lamb curry pie. A one person, one serve pie. Filling: superb, spicy, tasty. Pastry: tasted dead.

From the Central Market I have bought game pies: about a two person pie but while there were hints of greatness the overall impression was: blah!

I don’t know why the perfect pie is such an obsession with me but I do love pies.

Not pies sold by Cut Me Own Throat Dibbler and I want that understood right from the start! (Any other Terry Pratchett fans here???)

Think I might make a bacon and egg pie for the family christmass lunch. Some sort of pie. Time to drag my pie cookbooks off the shelf. Maybe make something from Mrs Beeton. No vegetarian recipes in her cookbook!

This place has a pretty good reputation for pies:

I used to get a seafood pie from Miami years ago.

It was so filling that I couldn't eat for about 24 hours afterwards.

There were about 12 king prawns in every (single serve) pie.

OK, I missed out on visiting Perth last year but I definitely will go there May 2019!

Take me to one of those and I will be a happy little piggy!

And take me to a brewery there, natch.

Far king kebabs, late night drunk kebab chewing idiots who want to get into 'my' Cab while they are still eating the bastard. Leaves a terrible smell in the Cab, forgetting what they leave on the seats/floors. If you are sucking a stinking kebab, DO NOT get into a Cab.
