Another Taipeng Spice popup this Sunday. Jane the Gardener writes:

"By popular demand, Taipeng Spice will be back at the Tapas bar [Spanish place opposite Jing Jing] this Sunday (July 3) with a selection of home-made traditional spicy and mild vegan dishes from South India. Takeaway or eat-in, any time from 5.30pm onwards.

Favourites include Garlic Curry a pungent mix of coconut crème, tamarind, , turmeric, mustard seed, chilli and urud dhal (white lentils) plus fresh curry leaves.

Red Rasam is the ideal hot weather tonic. This original combination of tomato, lentils, tamarind, black pepper and a constellation of freshly ground spices is topped with fresh coriander leaves.

Everybody loves tender Okra, lifted out of the ordinary with the help of fresh coconut and fragrant spices.

Call them Eggplant, Aubergine or Baingan, they are simply delicious stuffed with toasted peanuts and almost 20 spices all carefully balanced for maximum impact.

Black tea transforms humble Chickpeas with the help of fresh ginger, lime juice and coriander leaves plus selected spices to tempt the appetite in hot weather.

Cabbage is unrecognisable when finely shredded and gently stewed with turmeric and fresh curry leaves plus mild but fragrant spices.

Freshly cooked extra-long grain Basmati Rice is available.
All these recipes are prepared without dairy products or wheat.
Ask about our heavenly Indian-inspired puddings."

LaLa mama's has put up a huge and very expensive poster at the YSW Ferry Pier gate. Great location, targeted directly at Lamma commuters coming back from town; plus arriving tourists, who still have a very hard time finding their location:

Three live music events happening at the Island Bar on the weekend!

The new owners are very committed to our local music scene. More and more live concerts happening and, for the first time ever, having kind of a "house musician", playing every Friday.
