One good day we found ourselves in Mt Victoria, up in the Blue Mountains, needing a feed. The Imperial Hotel was nearby, so we drove there. We had been there before for drinks, and I’d say most of us found the vintage vibe quite appealing.
The place was dark, I was tired and hungry, and, well, I suck at taking photos. I’ve saved the least blurry of them for this post, so not all dishes will be depicted.
As I said, I was starving. I ordered a T-bone steak with salad and no sauce. Other dishes ordered at our table were the supreme chicken schnitzel, beer battered fish, lamb cutlets, beef pie and grilled salmon. The choice of sides were the standard salad, vegetables, chips, or mash, with staff willing to please customers’ mix-n-match requests.
Once again I wondered why I got asked how I wanted my steak, as it arrived well beyond medium-rare. It was dry and tough. The salad was pretty average.
T-bone steak with salad ($22.90)
I don’t know how good or bad were other people’s dishes but that doesn’t seem to matter that much when you dine with non-foodie friends.
Beer battered fish with chips and salad ($18.90)
