Another guest review. I’ve been fucking busy lately after moving house AGAIN, and going away for a few weekends. Pretty keen to get around the Rosemount and the Scotto in the next week or so. For the meantime, Eric, brother of Denys, takes the reigns, accompanied by the Shentons and a few others.
"I suspect that it is now common knowledge at the pubs, that the Got Parma crew is checking out parmas all over the state. With this, they should be paying particular attention to their parma dishes just in case a Got Parma taste tester came in unexpectedly.
About six weeks ago we tested the Chicken Parma at the Sandy Cove Tavern in South Yunderup and it got an18/25 score. Not bad. Would a restaurant drop their guard after they found out that their parma had already been assessed?
We decided to check. This time we sent an undercover parma tester, Uncle Eggy, back to the Sandy Cove Tav to check things out.
It was a Saturday night and I was starving. On arrival, I met up with four friends who had arrived by boat. We opted to eat in the sports bar. There were plenty of patrons, but seating was not a problem.
I selected Chicken Parma from the menu, as did the Quairading Parma Queen. At $22 a head, not the cheapest parma in WA, but not a rip off either.
We found the cold Hahns 3.5 beer that we were enjoying pre dinner, also went very well with the chicken dish.
The meals came out in good time.
The chicken was served with salad and chips. The salad dressing looked like the contents of a babies nappy, but was absolutely delicious and combined beautifully with the textures and tastes of the fresh salad.
The chips were good. A little crunchy and not too oily. The chicken serving was large, most likely a large breast. Chicken breasts are easily dried out when cooked, but this was not the case. The breast was served up, still moist and tasty. The parma sauce and cheese topping was excellent. I don’t think I have had better.
The meal satisfied my hunger and passed my need for something tasty for dinner. The Quairading Parma Queen enjoyed hers too. It was too large for her to finish, so it was polished off by a growing son.
Pub Vibe 3/5
The final total shows that the chicken parma at the Sandy Cove, even with a reduced Pub Vibe score on this occasion, is of a consistently high quality and should be on all Parma lovers bucket list.
A very good meal.”
