When it comes to dude food, the Merrywell at Crown Casino Burswood pretty much has the formula down to a fine art. I have to admit sometimes when I want to indulge on fried goodness, sliders and assorted greasy fare, a trip to the casino is in order.
While the mini burgers (or sliders) definitely appealed to me, on this hot day I had only eyes for Merrywell’s famed mac and cheese bites with house HP sauce ($11.50). To my surprise my two colleagues order the same, though one of them adds on a serving of fries ($5.00). That’s one hell of a fried lunch!
It’s the BBQ pork quesadilla ($11.00 for an order) and after one bite I have a feeling of order regret. I know I’ll enjoy the mac and cheese since I’ve had them at the actual Merrywell, but the quesadilla is wonderful. Sweet rich barbecue sauce covers shredded pork – all of which is encased by a crisp, thin tortilla. I’ll get this one next time for sure!
They are truly delicious! I know not everyone would love these but I think they’re a great guilty pleasure – though probably a bit too ambitious for a mid-week lunchtime meal. I definitely gobbled them up with great gusto, but had some oily guilt for sure afterwards.
To ease the feeling naturally I sampled my colleague’s fries which he had readily smothered in ketchup. They taste good, salty, crunchy and actual potato (evidenced by the skin still present on some chips).
All up, it was a great first taste of the Merrywell’s Dude Food Truck and a sign of what people can expect at the Food Truck Rumble this weekend. Delicious!
