Family Day At The Coast


We're having family bonding time and on Friday, it was decided that we'd go to the Gold Coast for the day. 

We went to Mecca Bah for lunch, which was a little underwhelming. The falafel was almost burnt and the lamb tagine wasn't anything special. The portions were remarkably small. The kofte pizza was decent, and I think the dough was made in-house so that was nice. The stand out of the whole meal was the ice cream. We had Date and Vanilla, Turkish Coffee, and Middle Eastern Halva. I love the Macedonian halva made with tahini, but there's another Middle Eastern halva that's made with carrots and raisins, so when we found out the halva ice cream was the tahini-and-pistachio variation I was so happy. All three flavours were delicious, but the coffee and date ones especially so. :)

After lunch we headed to Broadbeach, and had a nice few hours there. It was a beautiful day and the water so gorgeous. There were lots of surfers and kite-surfers so that was fun to watch. On the way back up we had dinner at Sunnybank Oriental hehe. All in all, a great day. :)

  2. Aw, thats lovely! I wish I lived near the beach, a proper beach. The coast in singapore is grainy and polluted. Nothing beautiful to see or touch! Ice cream and the beach is always good! ^^

    1. That's one thing I don't miss about Singapore! East Coast Park and its muddy water and the scores of cargo ships on the horizon! The beach is amazing, but it can be really crowded sometimes! :) xx
