    "Hey Allan, come to the pub and watch footy." "Will there be parma?" "Of course, this is Melbourne you idiot." And with that inauspicious beginning, a new benchmark was set. The footy was on multiple screens, they had my favourite beer on tap, and just behind the bar was a little sign telling us that they had "Melbourne's best parma 2014". Those judges last year were not wrong. The cheese had that nice brown peaks that marks a perfect grilling. The chips and salad were in separate bowls on the side of the plate. And the plate, that took up half of our bench, was covered in the biggest crumbed slice of heaven I have ever laid my eyes on. The chicken was thick yet still moist. The ham was smokey and the sauce had just the perfect tomato zing. As more friends showed up, more parmas were ordered and although hardly anyone could finish theirs, no one was unsatisfied. Next time I'm in Melbourne I'm making a beeline right here and throwing my money at the bewildered bar staff.

    A ridiculously thick parma that managed to avoid the usual dry path at that size. I'm not sure if shaved ham was on sale the week I was there, but my goodness were they generous on the topping. Layers upon layers upon layers of ham. You get the choice of 2 toppings from a good list, but if you stick to the classic chips as a side you'll be eating some of Brisbane's best chips.

    While I was eating this parma I was just thinking about how amazing it was. The sauciest one I've had yet, fried in the pan if is served in. The chunkiest, tomatoe-i-est sauce, smothering absolutely perfectly cooked and juicy chicken, with plenty of leftover sauce to dip those thick beer battered chips in. The cheese was all melted and abundant and stuck to the side of the pan (I loved it). No salad (didn't bother me) but on the down side just not enough of them.
