At work, the production team had our first afternoon-out last week. What was planned as a long lunch at Wildfire turned into a quick bite at Equilibrium. Ah, the things you have to sacrifice…
We had the salt & pepper squid to share. The squid was lightly dusted in spice and peppercorns… it was tender and crispy and for $12 it was even served with a side of salad and chips.

The associate producer ordered the lamb cutlets which were cooked to a golden brown. They looked so hearty and scrumptious.

And the executive producer had the steak which he finished in record time.

I had the seafood basket which was huge! Crunchy chips, a fresh crisp salad (i was addicted to the purple cabbage), the vinaigrette octopus was plump and juicy… the calamari and prawns were great… but the fish was too fishy for my liking. Even the thick batter didn’t hide the odour.

Oh well, a cheap pub meal is all you need sometimes.

  • That all looks so good – I hate odoury fish though, so that’s unfortunate. But it does look crispy and those chips look awesome too!

  • That looks like one very juicy steak!
