For a long time now I have wanted to check out the buffet restaurant that Pizza Hut has at Kirra Beach on the Gold Coast. So yesterday I drove down there to check it out.

I found the Kirra Pizza Hut was easy to find as it is right on the beach, next to the Kirra Surf Club. In fact it is the same building complex, which is called the Kirra Beach Pavilion.

Prices are shown below as of September 2012

I was greeted with such a beautiful day. The sun was glistening on the sea and the long waves were breaking on the Kirra beach. I could see Currumbin Hill, Burleigh Heads and the buildings of Surfers Paradise all from the Pizza Hut restaurant.

Shopa Docket Tip:

I was blessed to have a discount Shop a Docket that meant that instead of paying the adult price of $11.95, I only paid $8.95 for all I could eat pizza, salad and dessert.

These Shop a Dockets are available on the back of your shopping receipts or you can also download the discount voucher online and take that in with you. I also found out that the coupon is good for up to around 4-6 people. So I can come back with my family and friends and we all get the discount.

On the weekends the prices are higher, but the shopper docket coupon still reduces the cost down to $13.95. So you still save!

I had a book with me and just relaxed, enjoyed the delightful view and read some of my book over the hour and a half that I was in the restaurant. It was really pleasant.

Over the period that I was there I must have seen at least 15 different varieties of pizza set out for the customers to enjoy. There were various ones with vegetarian toppings as well as meat and chicken pizzas.

I must say too that they were yummy! I enjoyed being able to taste the thin and crispy pastry base right through to the think pan pizza.

I also enjoyed the chocolate brownie and apple crisp pizza for dessert. I added some soft serve ice-cream onto these and it made a delicious sweet.

In our next blog post we will travel back to Tasmania and continue with our walk out to Sphinx rock on Mt Wellington near Hobart.

So next time, Remember to Enjoy Life and make the most of your time with your Family!

Grill'd Healthy Burgers Robina Town Centre, Gold CoastToday we were blessed to be able to have lunch at Grill’d at Robina on the Promenade.

Grill’d have just celebrated their second birthday at Robina this week. On Monday they had a special offer of Bring a Friend, buy one burger and the friend gets their burger for free.

Lots of Gold Coasters took Grill’d up on their offer and enjoyed the healthy burger alternative!

Today Greg is on late shift at work and so he was able to enjoy a late lunch and have his burger and hot chips.

Greg & Leanne Annett Enjoying Grill'd Healthy Burgers

One thing that I appreciate about Grill’d is the range of different and healthy burgers to choose from.

Grill'd Healthy BurgersToday Greg ordered a Summer Sunset beef burger. This included the grilled lean beef pattie, avocado, bacon, pineapple and salad.

Allan chose the Baa Baa Burger. This has a lean Lamb grilled pattie also with avocado, tasty cheese, salad, relish and herbed mayo.

My choice was the new Winter Special, which is only available for a limited period! This also included the lean beef gilled pattie with feta, rocket, tomato, Spanish onion and smashed spicy pumpkin! Yum!

We also grabbed a takeaway burger for my mum, who is currently in hospital and looking for a change from hospital food. Mum got the Big Queenslander (aka Almighty) burger. This yummy burger has the 100% lean beef grilled pattie with tasty cheese, trim, crispy bacon, free-range egg, beetroot slices, salad and relish and herbed mayo.

We all got our burgers on the traditional wholemeal bun, but you can also select the Panini roll if you prefer.

The chips may not be as healthy as the burgers are, but they are still delicious! I loved the seasoning on them. I asked what was in it and found out from Glen, a Franchise Partner, that it is made up of Rosemary, Sage, Thyme and Rock Salt. Yummy! This is a great tasting seasoning on nicely cooked chips.

At the end of his lunch break, Greg went back to work and I went to visit mum in hospital with her Big Queenslander burger and chips. Mum loved it!

Grill'd Healthy Burgers, TakeawayThis is definitely one place that we will be visiting again in the future. Grill’d has many stores all over Australia, I have seen today from their website.

To think that a week ago I had never really even heard of Grill’d Healthy Burgers and now I am a happy and satisfied customer!

In our next blog post we will travel back to Tasmania to continue our holiday tales. We will share some photos that we took on our walk out to the Sphinx Rock, part way up Mt Wellington, near Hobart. At around 720m above sea level, the views were breathtaking.

So until then, Remember to Enjoy Life and Enjoy a time with your Family!

Yesterday I wrote about the launch event that I received a VIP invite to. At the presentation Adam Liaw gave a cooking demonstration of the newly created gourmet meals that Noodle Box is now offering.

I joined over a hundred other locals as we all enjoyed sampling the four new dishes in this gourmet range.

Adam also signed a little booklet about this new product launch for my husband, Greg and daughter, Tehillah, as they were unable to attend. He wrote “Happy Cooking!”, which is very appropriate.

As I mentioned yesterday, my favourite of these 4 new meals is the Aromatic Black Duck Noodles. This is definitely a dish that I will be ordering in the future!

Adam gave a great cooking demonstration as the talented chef that he is. You can watch the photo slideshow in this short video clip.

So be sure to check out your local Noodle Box store for not only their long-time family favourites, but now also their new Gourmet Range of dishes, especially designed and created by Masterchef, Adam Liaw.

Adam came from a large family and knows the importance of being able to purchase high quality meals at reasonable prices that most families can afford. So check it out.

Noodle Box Gourmet Range by Adam LiawIn our next article we will travel back to Tasmania and continue with our fun, Family Tassie Holiday. We will take a drive from Seven Mile Beach up to Mt Wellington and see if we find any snow that we can play in.

Until next time, Remember to Enjoy Life and Enjoy a Delicious Meal with your family!

Noodle Box Gourmet Range Signed Booklet

Noodle Box Gourmet Range By Adam LiawWhat a fantastic time I had today meeting Adam Liaw at Noodle Box at Mermaid Beach on the Gold Coast. There were over a hundred other people who were also invited to come to this special event where Adam did a cooking demonstration of the new Gourmet Range of Noodle Box meals.

Adam Liaw is the 2010 Masterchef Winner and was chosen to develop this special gourmet range of Noodle Box meals due to his passion and skill as a chef, especially his love of Asian cooking.

When I spoke to Adam he said that he had flown today from Sydney where he lives, especially for this Gourmet launch. He was an absolute hit with all of those present today as his radiant smile beamed to each person he greeted.

The store at Mermaid Waters where the launch was held is a perfect location as there is plenty of outside, undercover seating where everyone was able to mingle and enjoy the festivities.

Noodle Box Gourmet Dragon WingsWe all enjoyed sampling Adam’s Dragon Wings brought around by the Noodle Box team. There were also various drinks for all to enjoy.

From the youngest child to the most mature adult, each one was smiling, chatting, eating and obviously enjoying themselves.

There were opportunities for everyone to have Adam sign a copy of the special little booklet about this special launch of the Gourmet range of Noodle boxes.

Also anyone who was interested could have a photo taken with Adam. Many people made the most of this opportunity.

Noodle Box Gourmet Launch, Adam Liaw & Leanne AnnettAfter we had enjoyed the Dragon’s Wings for a while, Co-owner of Noodle Box, David Milne and Adam were interviewed, which was interesting to listen to.

Adam then went back behind the counter and began to prepare the other 3 Gourmet meals. These included, Aromatic Black Duck Noodles, Malaysian Beef Rendang Curry with Rice and Prawn and Calamari Sambal also with rice.

Noodle Box Gourmet Range of DishesThese 3 meals were then served to all of the guests. My favourite was the delicious Aromatic Black Duck Noodles, but each of the meals was also very good and tasty.

One thing that is great with this new Gourmet range is that they can be ordered to suit each customer’s tastes. So if you prefer a mild taste then you can order Mild. For those who prefer a hotter flavour then you have the option of Medium or Hot!

The meals that Adam cooked for us today were all in the Mild-Medium range of flavour. So everyone was happy.

There is still more to share with you about our lunch today so I will continue in the next blog post also on this same topic of eating out.

Until then, Remember to Enjoy Life and Enjoy a Delicious Noodle Box!
