Tasty dishes in Tingalpa
The facade of the Tingalpa Hotel looks like a typical suburban pub, but take a step behind the front doors and there is a spacious modern bar and restaurant, which extends to a beer garden and children's play area.

The restaurant is light and airy with glass, wooden beams, high suspended fans, and greenery to create a contemporary ambiance. You could almost be sitting in a beer garden without the Queensland steam.

There is a varied food menu, providing good value lunches; and a hearty and tasty evening menu, with bar food from the same kitchen, for those wishing to dine in the bar area.

The evening menu (The Main Event) features Lamb Rump Roasted Cumin Crust, Rolled Roasted Pork Belly, and Braised Chicken and Mushroom Pie, along with old favourites of Steak with a choice of sauces. The steak arrived perfectly cooked, coated in a fresh cream and mushroom sauce, with lashings of salad greens and crisp chips. The Lamb was tender and succulent, with a generous hint of Indian spices.

Specials of the night were Fish & Chips, "the Tingalpa Way", combining portions of Salmon and Barramundi with fresh tossed salad and chips; and Chicken Kiev.

Complimenting the meal was a large range of affordable drinks served from the bar. A glass of wine and craft beer came in at under $16.

A lunchtime visit provided an eye-opening experience. The 'Mail Burger' literally made my 18 year old son's jaw drop when it was served. It was a true definition of a 'Whopper', consisting of Chef's beef pattie and the usual accompaniments, plus egg, bacon, and a good supply of Steakhouse Chips...all for $15, as part of the great value lunch menu.

I chose from the specials board: a roast pork leg and baked vegetables, for under $15. There was also a winter special of sweet potato and pumpkin soup with garlic bread, for $9.
