The Cabin

Posted By Kerri


We had planned to eat leftover lamb this evening but we didn’t actually have any left. Plan B saw us defrosting some chicken breasts and eating those with salad and pitta bread instead. It just didn’t feel right though; admittedly today was a mild and sunny day that gave me hope spring was on it’s way but it definitely wasn’t warm enough to be eating such summery food.

Luckily, Stephen had some good news and suggested we go out to celebrate so we began looking for a local restaurant to visit. We’re lucky enough to have some really good places nearby but, having lived here for over two years, we’ve been to many of them and were looking for somewhere different this evening.

A quick Google search led me to The Cabin which seemed to have only good reviews, an added bonus being 50% off on a Monday so this was our Plan C.

I quickly decided on the wagyu beef burger and Stephen did the same. We also couldn’t resist the calamari and opted to share that between us as a starter. We were both glad we did as it was really tasty; tender squid coated in a peppery batter served with a piquant tartar sauce, a huge serving that was more than enough for the two of us.


We both enjoyed our burgers too; cooked to medium on a char grill and served in huge, floury buns with crunchy, potatoey fries and a pickle on the side. I didn’t notice any discerible difference between this and a standard burger but to fully appreciate the flavour of this fine meat then a steak would have been a better choice.

The other thing I learnt is that I really need to learn how to use the new camera 🙁

    Nice lookin burger. The pickle looks a little anemic though.

    A suggestion on shooting pics in a restaurant: work with your camera’s custom white balance feature so you don’t have so much of a yellowish cast from the restaurant’s lighting.

    The pickle wasn’t quite as anaemic looking, I think it’s mostly down to my unfamiliarity with the new camera!

    Thanks for the tip, I’ll try that next time.

    I am getting a big calamari craving from that first photo. I think this place has just influenced my decision on where to buy a flat!
