The Bay in Mordialloc @ Saturday, July 08, 2017

Tuesday 13th June

This Tuesday finishing work at 4pm, and after a nap we took a 40mins trip to dinner at The Bay in Mordialloc,  a beach city town far far away. That's 40mins from the city - not from where are are to Mordialloc.

A cornerside pub, we had the best seat in  the house with the best lighting in the corner. Arriving at 8.50 on a Parma Tuesday the kitchen closes at 9pm, and the place at 10pm. 

It was warm inside with great lighting, though not as bright as Myer where we required sunglasses to stroll through the beauty department.

Round the world in 8 Parmas. All served with chips and salad $15

Only on Mondays & Tuesdays - that's a pretty good deal!

Parmesan and Truffle Fries $12

We started with paramasen truffle chips to share, a huge serving. 
I wished the waitress had said the parma also comes with chips!

Mexican Parma $15

Corn chips, salsa, sour cream, guacamole & mozzarella

Bio guy had the mex param, for it was $15 parma night with eight different choices. It was huge! But didn't lack quality.  Salsa and sour cream, unexpectedly twist on classic. The garden salad, pickled red onion added sweeteness and created a well rounded salad. Simple, boring good. Right up there with the best of them. Would definitely return on parma night! - Said he.

Baked Gnocchi - Baby bocconcini, salsa verde, swiss brown mushrooms, napoli $22

I had the gnocchi, which was very tomatoy, been tomato based. More suited to a be a sharing dish to be served with bread. Overwhelming. Not your typical gnocchi serving size. I ate 1/4 of this (because I was almost full from the chips alone... bad choice of entree there). Lacked texture other than being just soft. Crotons on top would have been good. Also an egg since it's baked.

Spanish sherry poached pear, pistachio crumble, & vanilla ice cream $10

Poached pear, Gaytime crumble but less oily with vanilla ice cream. Yes I know the description says pistachio but it didn't taste like that. The pear was soft and well poached in the sherry. This truly was my highlight of our visit! If you visit do get this.

Service was fast and friendly

Note - They don't do takeaway, how odd...

Will we be back? Yes! For param night!
