Toxteth Hotel, Glebe

We had a quick dinner at the Toxteth, a low-key but recently refurb'ed pub in Sydney's inner west.

The food here definitely fulfilled the "value" part of the pub grub equation, with enormous servings to satiate the ravenous.

Calamari with chips $13.00

Grilled marinated chicken breast with chips and salad $18.00

Smoked chicken salad with Roquefort dressing $13.00

Baby octopus salad $18.00

The chicken breast serving was enormous although this appeared pan-fried rather than grilled. The taste of dried herbs was also a little strong. The smoked chicken salad was a bit of a disappointment with deli, not whole chicken used. However the baby octopus was tender and tasty even if the cherry tomato and parsley garnish did look at little 80s retro! And importantly for some, plenty of chips for everyone!

The outdoor courtyard was also perfect to dine in as the sun set on a warm summer's eve.

    Wow, everything looks so good, AG. The plate of calamari and chips are killing me!

    When I visited Australia, some of the things I appreciated about the food were the huge portions (ok maybe this isn't so good after all), the oh-so-fresh salads, and the presentation. And prices were reasonable too!

    Hey.. AG,
