We have been mostly cooking in on our stay in Geelong, Victoria as we rented a flat but last night we went to a nice place nearby called Black Salt for dinner. Great meal but a side dish we had of Brussels sprouts with wonderful crispy bacon bits was so big we had over half left. I asked the server if it would be possible to wrap it up in some kitchen foil for us to take (I am aware that the doggie bag concept is not world wide but the kitchen foil request worked in Wales several times). Our server asked if we were staying in the attached hotel and we sad no and that we had a flat nearby. He said we then could not take any leftovers as it would violate health regulations and they could get in a lot of trouble. I said, OK, I understood but I come from the school of not wasting food and would have loved to have had the leftovers for lunch! Oh well, I'll remember them in my dreams I guess.
So was he correct or just giving me a line. My wife said maybe we should take a few zip lock plastic bags along next time!
