Yes we ventured to Colbar today for lunch with our mates The Rusiecki’s.
Now we have not been there for quite a while. Clearly some time it became evident as the prices seem to have doubled. Ouch. Now all those that have been to Colbar will know it is a no-frills place, renowned for that chicken curry that reminds you of home, it’s been there years, run by 3 generations of ladies. Well none of that charm has changed. But as I said the pricing sure has.
I had a gammon steak, chips, egg and tomato. That was a Princely sum of $24. Ouch.
So our family outing to Colbar today tipped the scales at over $100. Most unusual in my previous experiences there. Let’s hope they don’t get too carried away with the prices though as they are not exactly on your doorstep. So a $15 taxi fare each way and + $100 for what is, in effect, pub food could start to stop the visitors.
We met many friends there as always, so it still is the melting pot of old.
We love you, but all I will say is caution – don’t price yourself out of the market.
