A LUNCH NOT FOR SHRIMPS

Remember when eating Asian was “2 mains and a fried rice” that easily fed 3 people? Those days of good food, good servings and good value? Before Fairfax Epicure tossers opined that true gourmands must pay twice as much for half as much? Try this “lunch special”: Singapore noodles for $9.80. Not with shrimp, but with big prawns aplenty. A huge serve. Tucked next to St Kilda’s Aldi Supermarket, the Inkerman Asian Cuisine eatery relies on locals and Chinese tourists – busloads of them at a time, staying in the above serviced apartments. So they must be doing something right…

QANTAS PAYOUT FOR SACKING ‘STOLI’ STEALING STEWARD

I’m siding with Qantas on this one. The steward, let’s call him “Stoli”, stole little bottles of vodka, gin and beer, and lied. Stoli worked for Qantas for 28 years… how many did he “acquire” over that time? The Fairfax story¬†implies it could be endemic: 3 crew on the same flight caught by random. Passenger always pays for it in airfares…
