After a quick whip around one of the local supermarkets in St Helen's, i realise cooking our camping meals isn't cost effective.
The price of fruit and veggies is so outrageously expensive plus i can't get what i need.
Is there a farmer's market, i just can't tell.
Instead we've decided to try some of the local takeaways..and what a surprise it turns out to be..
First stop- Scamander Mouth Cafe, which looks like a previous servo, i have my reservations because of their takeaway menu but SURPRISE, their fresh local fish n chips beats any we've ever had..anywhere!
Second stop- Soul food is a Middle Eastern inspired daytime takeaway in St Helen's. It's incredibly cheap, wholesome, healthy with great portion sizes and so much choice. We love it soo much we've come back every day and everything is amazing, so lovingly prepared..and they're mega busy so it's fresh and terrific.
Lima Organica Creperie and juice bar looks appetising and is also super busy, i grab a menu and speak to the Chef, i love the vibe and the food looks great, but it's now time for us to move on- Plus it's nice to leave some surprises for our next trip..
Heading home down the East coast we pit stop at the Gulch in Bicheno for Boar fish fillets and at the Fish Van in Triabunna for fresh fillets of Stripey Trumpeter @ $26 a kg, what a bargain we can't resist- They're doing a roaring trade selling fishy takeaways, which were pretty good.
Once again the East coast has lived up to my expectations and with beautiful balmy weather, it's been tops...ah well, until the next time!!
