To All, interesting reading the comments on here. Another ex-pat said to me 'go home then', after I had said I wasn't that impressed with the food. Little bit strong I say. We've only eaten out twice in a non fast food setting, and the food was excellent. Whenever we've been abroad we always try local food, ok so it usually ends up with us laughing and spitting it back out, but we do give it a go. Lots of food products here are high quality, but choice is limited. Jim and Adel have hit the nail on the head, not going to pretend to like pies they don't like.
Butchy2k, yes thanks for your post, we know we are in Australia, we very much do not want little Britain, we came over with a 'give it a go' Aussie rules apply attitude. One day, if I ever get to the end of it, I'll post on here exactly what I've had to go through to get my trade licence, I've taken it all in good spirit, but I can promise you it'll make your toes curl. So please don't slate me for wanting some comfort food.......and the fight continued lol.
I totally missed the "fight started" comment...................
NO NEED for it, imo; and The LORD knows I am more than happy to weigh into a good "sparring match"! Scousers are known for throwing a punch, then ducking out befor the cops arrive, hahaha
Findon is hardly Moana, Seaford, Hallett Cove...........and i sure as H aint knocking those areas; but to castigate someone for their dietry desires is a bit much......we ALL have stuff we miss, food is just the tip of the iceberg!!
I agree that there are alternatives, and some even better ones, but c'mon, play nice, its only bloody readybrek!!
I am constantly telling expats that this isnt Engerland, deal with it, and a few don't like it, but thats about issues unrelated to this particular topic!
Keldaz, i don't have any tattoos, scared of needles ( yes even nurses don't like them); and as for being "nice", please dont ever say that again! "nice" is the jumper your nana knitted, or a dress the missus looks like a sack of spuds in!! LOL!!! The offer stands, btw.
The best pies are from becks bakery Pt Norlunga real chunks of beef and piping hot Don't recommend the family size though its back to the Mushy meat
Scousemouse, ok I withdraw nice and replace it with scary. If you ever saw a jumper my nana knitted, you would realise it wasn't nice either, mainly due to the fact it was twice as big as me, and you could put it on by stepping through the neck hole lol.
At the start of this thread I was only asking if anyone knew of a British tuck shop in Glenelg, I wasn't for one minute suggesting we all walk around wearing union jack t-shirts and eat nothing but British pies. Have had some really well balanced conversations about differences with Aussie's, with some Poms it seems everthing has to be set in stone. I hate marmite, some people love love it, I'm cool with that.
Juicy haddock ,in cripsy batter, thick cut (yes CUT) chips - fried in beef dripping..............
One of the few things I miss!!.
Mrs Tyke's cooking is fab and even better over here so not short of a good feed!!
I enjoy real Gammon from the Pommy butchers at Southgate Plaza, Reynella.
After a while you miss less.
In the interests of research (and cos I happened to be passing), I took a couple of pics of the shop window.
I would have taken more, but the shop lady was looking at me with suspicion.
Note the jar of cockles in case you are missing that particular delicacy!
(why, oh why?)

Coles at Noarunga Collanades sell some British stuff too, my little thing is proper colemans mint sauce. But for the life of me I can't find Primula cheese spread in a tube or Dairylea, and a big decent tub of Gravy wouldn't go a miss.
