New club menu to wow – Plus ‘all you can eat’ Christmas buffet on

WHY not relax this festive season and let Granville Diggers do all the cooking and cleaning up on Christmas Day, with a fantastic, affordable celebration menu on offer for all the family.

The RSL club is hosting an ‘all you can eat’ buffet lunch extravaganza, 12-2.30pm, so you can celebrate in style.
Featuring starters, a cold platter, hot items, salads and dessert, you will be spoilt for choice with some of the favourites including tiger prawns, smoked salmon, roast turkey, roast leg ham, seafood mornay, honey prawns, veggie fried rice, roast potato and pumpkin, steamed veg, plum pudding, cheesecake and fruit pavlova.
Bookings limited so call now: Members, $55; visitors, $60; children under 4 years, free, and 4-12 years, $25.
But don’t wait until Christmas to pop in as Poppies is under new management who also own a sea cucumber farm and a dim sim factory, using these products on their menu and are keen to get feedback from local diners.
Poppies manager Mimi Hon says some of these dishes include Traditional Braised Golden Sandfish Sea Cucumber, Golden Sandfish Sea Cucumber Soup, Sea Cucumber Dumplings and Sea Cucumber Fried Rice.
“Sea cucumber is a rare superfood that’s high in protein, low in fat and sugar and cholesterol-free,” she said.
Diners can also take advantage of this week’s special – Lobster Mornay with Chips and Salad – for just $24.80.
Plus all the club favourites are still front and centre such as pasta, pizza, burgers, seafood, grilled steaks and chicken breast, Italian classics such as chicken schnitzel and parmigiana, Asian favourites such as laksa, noodle soups, Pad Thai, Japanese Unagi Don, baked pork chop rice, Cantonese stir fry, handmade dim sims, desserts and a wide range of interesting snacks and sides.
Vegetarian dishes are also available along with a children’s menu.
Only closed on Mondays, Poppies is open from 11.30am daily.
