Today’s poem. 
Potato cake potato cake how delicious was your knubble

If only I leave you to rest your deliciousness might double

Today’s other poem 

There once was a man from Nubeena 

Who wanted his potato cake cleaner 

He gave it a wipe 

With his mean wife’s old tights 

But that just made his old wife meaner.  

Today’s other,  other  poem  (by Jeanie) 
Stick a potato cake up his bum. 

Potato clip potato clip potato clip potato clip potato clip . 

Stick a potato bum up his bum.

Stick a potato tree up his tree.

Today’s poem:

We waited quite a while for the 6th cake of the order.

The temp suggested that it came from within the fires of Mordor.

Holly hated her cake,  we should not have bought it for her

A crispless,  crunchless crap cake maybe they  pre-soaked in water?

Dispute started over ratings,  with  criteria of ‘flavour’

Some had called for its omission whilst still others were in favour

This all lead to pass-ag phrases and other childish behaviour

Mostly coming just from Tessa,  but the rest all soon forgave her.

For potato cake professionals,  tasting can be sentimental

But for others just a phase,  something fickle,  temperamental

We did,  though,  all agree,  that the temperature is essential

And alas at pepperoni’s we found large temp differentials

With opinions of our party and our perspectives divided

There was risk of some cake tasters never getting re-invited

In the end debates were settled and reviewers were united

Looking forward to the next tasting we’re all feeling quite excited

Luke: “Another readable chapter in the potato cake narrative. “

Tessa: “Best potato cake I’ve ever had  (out of the four).”

Ollie: “Don’t go chasing syllables,  please stick to the fritters,  scallops,  cakes that you’re used to…”.  Honestly?  I was mainly just distracted and impressed by the rhyming prowess of our guest reviewers.”

Holly: “It could have been worse but I don’t know how.”

Mykonos Take Away

Mykonos was the name of the place. 

Snacks were ready to go 

In one bite it was known 

Best damn potato cakes in the state! (Tassie)

Ollie: “You know those times when you remember something from your childhood as being great,  then you go and try to do it again but it isn’t as great as when you were a kid?  This wasn’t one of those times.”

Holly: “Prefect combo of salty and oily, crispy and soft.”

Price and ratings

Holly: ‘Weirdly hard.’

Ollie: ‘The flavour was actually sneakily good.’

Special Feature: hoops and everything… 

We tried their butternut pumpkin ring and cake.

The ring was quite pumpkiney and a little sweet,  but the cake was just wondering if.  A nice change from spud cakes,  but there’s obviously a reason why spud cakes are famous enough for people to make websites about them and butternut pumpkin cakes are lucky to make it in as a special feature.


Ballarat and back: spud cake attack! 

The route:

A potato cake on Sovereign HIll


Today’s Poem (This poem is inspired by the poem In Ballarat by John Farrell).

One review amongst many that were written.
On take out wrappers, on the front and back
Made the journey West, one hundred clicks driven.
to lend a hand, to mates Alex and Jack.
Rounding sovereign hill, a thought had us smitten
golden nuggets (potato cakes) found, off the beaten track
We’d bid our mates adieu, set out on our quest
Three sites to go prospecting, which would be best?

Fair Dinkum Fish & Chips, menu roof to floor
Cakes ok, but some uncooked flour within
Brown Hill Fish and Chips, truly unique decor
Hash brown-esque, but too salty and too thin
Leigh Creek Roadhouse, thought we had space for one more
Home made and so thicc, drool down Ollie’s chin
Such a varied bounty, we had had our fills
Turns out in the end, there’s gold in them thar hills

Store 1…

Holly: “Nothing out of the ordinary.”


Second store

Nice decor too

Waaaaay tooooo salty (had to get some of it off)

Price and ratings

Ollie:”The thinnest spud cakes we’ve seen to date.  Good flavour,  so much  potential,  but ruined by the over salting! ”

Holly:”Hash brown in disguise! 👀 “

And, for the Hat Trick! 

There was even an outdoor seating area

Thicc as!

They were home made

And Ollie went back for another one of these delicious golden nuggets.

Holly:”Nice,  but not what I’m looking for in a potato cake.”

Ollie: “Eureka!!!  So thick with dagwood dog-esque  batter. These were some authentic, home made, country style potato cakes. Absolutely delish”

(sorry Pete,  didn’t know you live at the house too until you told me at the party.  Probably for the best anyway…  Too many syllables.) 

Price and ratings 

Ollie: “I was going to give them  2.5,  but they were so friendly that I had to give them 3!” 

Holly : ‘Unfortunately the food didn’t live up to the great service’
