Now last night Mr CLI came home late from work and as he had such an out of the ordinary day the day before, I hadn't cooked anything for tea as I knew that he would be a bit fussy about what he ate.
I was right my 2 suggestions for tea got the thumbs done. So what would you like I asked, after much thinking he suggested we go to Alex's for pizza.
Alex's is in Koroit about 15 minutes drive from Warrnambool.
Now Alex's is like a two faced doll one side is a take away shop also with video hire and the other side is a sit down restaurant. Also the menu is two sided one side is pizzas and the other side is Thai food.
Now I must admit I haven't tried the Thai food yet, whenever we go I am always tempted by the pizzas.
Last year Mr CLI, Miss Fish, Miss Le Coiffure and I went there for my birthday it was the first time I had been, well we thoroughly enjoyed it. So when we can we go back there.
Last night we had intended to get take away, which you can eat there at a table inside the shop or at tables set up outside, but as we live quite a distance away the pizzas would have been cold and soggy by the time we got home, so we ate in.
Now the prices for the sit down menu is only a couple of dollars more than the take away price.
Last nights bill for 2 large pizzas, I bought half of mine home + 2 x 600ml bottles of coke + I had a dessert which was meant to be exotic Thai fruits with ice cream , but was actually lychee's, which I actually quite like. = $50.50
Now on the restaurant side you have a area in the front that has hardwood floors chairs and tables with white linen table cloths, then you go down a hallway and enter and area which actually is the back of the 2 shops which have been enclosed, here you have white plastic chairs and black tablecloths and in winter a combustion heater, then you go into the next area which is called "the shed" and this is actually what is is a big shed running the width of the 2 buildings, it also has a combustion heater and a bar.
This are seems to be used for large parties and if you go on a Thursday night in winter the local footy team will be there for an after training meal.
It is a very chameleon like place, like I said a place of many faces.
Now the menu isn't expensive the pizzas range from $10.50 - $18.50. There are stuffed potatoes, Thai food incl rice dishes, noodle dishes, stirfrys and curries. Also you can get standard fare like chicken parmigiana and steaks.
One of the pizzas on a thick base you can ask for a thin base if you wish. Which is my preference the thin base is wafer thin and crispy.
A potato with cheese, sour cream and coleslaw.
For desserts the was sticky date pudding, pecan pudding & chocolate fudge brownie all served with ice cream for $7.50 or chocolate self sauce pudding and ice cream for $6.50, then for $5.50 you have 3 Thai desserts the one I had or rambutans and Ice Cream or what I had for my birthday last year which was sliced banana with hot coconut milk poured over and a sauce made from palm sugar.
I must say I was a bit surprised when I received it because there isn't any mention of it being hot on the menu, so it came as a bit of a shock. After my mouth recovered from the hot liquid I did enjoy it.
Alex's is open Tuesday - Sunday Address 156 Commercial Rd Koroit VIC. Phone - (03) 55658 550
So if you are ever in the area give Alex's a try, I would be very surprised if the food disappoints you.
