This last set of the Melbourne series features a few interesting food photos. The world is filled with interesting food, I suppose, but this is what we saw.

Nothing says yum like a white tomato.

Mmm. Funky curry.

IMG_3270
Burger trademark fault.

IMG_3273
Pork floss buns, because nothing else speaks so well to dental hygiene.

More pork floss buns!

IMG_3278
Inexplicable buns are inexplicable.

Puppy cake! Now made from real, erm... Never mind.

As usual, more at the Flickr set.

A small store in Perth, I think it was, had the name, whilst he was alive refused to sell the rights to the name. He died and his kids sold the name. Shame really.

I've had them, from that chain even (and I think from that particular store).

They taste mostly of garlic. You *do* taste *something* else but I and everyone else has never been entirely sure what that taste is. The charcoal is very fine, you don't get much sense of grittiness or even dustiness.

The best I can do for you is say bamboo charcoal bun is to garlic bread as dark rye is to Wonder-bread. It has been shifted in a direction that is somehow more savoury, more umami, yet also more subtle.

Thank you! That's really helpful/interesting/only one step shy of the ideal, which is of course trying them myself...

Hee. I think that's above-and-beyond; and I do still have to come to Melbourne sometime, even if I've missed WorldCon. So I shall come, and you can buy me one in person.
