The Fiery Crab Shrimp Aglio Olio has a pretty impressive title, and it actually lives up to the hype. Besides the half dozen bouncy, fabulously fresh shrimp that’ve been seared superbly, there’s a fair bit of shredded crab claw meat lurking within the lusciously lubricated linguine. Delivering on the ‘fiery’ part of the name is an abundance of dried chili flakes that’ll turn up the heat. You will be reaching for a cold drink to alleviate the heat, and it’s quite coincidental that Beer Basket just so happens to sell ice cold beers. Hmm. Really gets my noggin’ joggin’.

So, once Lockdown 2: Electric Boogaloo is over, you must head on down to Beer Basket and rob them with your accomplice, Burpple Beyond. Once more, thanks for the hospitality, @beerbasketkatong & @burpple!

The pastas at @beerbasketkatong are covered by #burpplebeyond wonderful 1-for-1, and it’s absolute daylight robbery. Both of these plates of pasta are priced at eighteen dollars each, which means that with Burpple Beyond, you can get ‘em both for just…eighteen bucks. That’s right, it’s legalised robbery.⠀

I was certainly not expecting to be impressed by the pedestrian sounding Beef Meatballs Bolognese, but I was duly impressed. A surprise, to be sure, but a welcome one. The (hopefully) homemade meatballs are utterly spot on. The density is perfect, with the right amount of resistance, springiness & chew for maximum pleasure. The meatballs possess sublime seasoning, and they pair perfectly with the sweet & sour meaty bolognese sauce. I would personally prefer a thicker pasta, like a pappardelle for maximum bolognese mopping efficiency, but al dente linguine ain’t too bad.

As for the Truffle Mushroom pizza ($22++), well, you can’t go wrong with truffles & mushrooms on melted cheese & truffle paste. The heady aroma of truffle pleasantly perfumes every slice of pizza, and while it might be simple in terms of ingredients, the combination of flavours is pitch perfect. Truly a worthy pizza of being washed down with a nice, chilly pint. And also that wonderful 1-for-1 with Burpple Beyond.

Thanks for hosting us, @burpple & @beerbasketkatong!

@beerbasketkatong #burpplebeyond one for one deal is valid for pastas and pizzas like this fine pair here. The pizza bases are all ten inch wide flatbreads which do crisp up oh so delightfully in the oven. There are a quartet of pizza options on the menu, and we got to try half of them.⠀

First and my favourite is undoubtedly the Smoked Duck pizza ($23++). While the slices of duck were too few to really provide full satisfaction, they still supplied the ample meaty, chewy satisfaction that only smoked duck can provide. The melted mozzarella cheese is absolutely delightful on the crispy, thin crust, and the hoisin sauce sparingly drizzled on top of the pizza turns it into a new twist on the classic, beloved Peking duck.

As far as I’m aware, @beerbasketkatong is the outlet with tacos on the menu, while the Kovan outlet doesn’t serve tacos. Beer Basket is a decent enough place for a casual #thirstythursday watering hole, and #tacothursday is always a solid companion to frosty pints of beer. Just like many of the finer things in life, Beer Basket’s tacos come in pairs.⠀

The Baja Fish tacos ($12++) features strips of deep fried, beer battered haddock spiffed up with shredded lettuce, pico de gallo, and a meagre drizzle of chipotle mayonnaise. While the fish was fantastic, with the moist, flaky haddock encased in a charmingly crunchy & light batter, the taco as a whole could be improved. The common thread amongst all the tacos was that the tortillas should’ve been toasted for a lot longer, and they could’ve been a lot bolder with the application of the sauces.

Once again, thanks for having us @beerbasketkatong & @burpple!

Finally, we’ve got the hearty Beef Cheek tacos ($16++). The maddeningly tender beef cheeks were slow cooked for four hours for maximum mouth melting, and these chunks of bovine were divine. Felicitously fatty, stunningly sapid, and ravishingly rich, the beef cheeks should star in their own solo show. I couldn’t taste the sambal mayo that’s supposedly applied to every beef cheek taco, so that was definitely a missteak there. Geddit? Beef? Steak? Mistake? Mis-STEAK? Oh I’m such a comedian!⠀
