Another month has flown by....
The busy winter season is well and truly over and this has given us a chance to catch up on some things we wanted to do around the restaurant, but before getting into that, this months winner of the $50 Gift Voucher draw is Paul Schultz.
Specials Board Up
One of the things we've done lately is put up our specials board and we're excited about offering you some new tasty dishes to try. You can see the specials we've got at the moment on our (the Sticky Rice and Mango is absolutely delicious).
Outdoor Dining Area Almost Ready
Our furniture for the balcony arrived this week and we are just waiting for Monaro Glass to put a strip of perspex around the hand rail area so a stray drink or fork doesn't collect someone below. We're hoping that'll be done by next week and then you'll be able to enjoy dining outside in this nice warm weather.
....and speaking of dining outside, we've decided to open for the Busking Festival on Sunday 4th November (11am - 4:30pm). When I spoke with Alan from Cooma Music last he said that there were over 70 buskers joining in...how cool is that!
We are going to set up a corner on the balcony for the buskers to play, so if you feel like sitting out on the balcony listening to music while having a few drinks and some yummy thai food we'd love to have you. We may even do a Buskers Picking Plate. What a way to spend a Sunday!
We've pretty much got our wine, beer & spirits list worked out now. We have 5 premium whites from First Creek Winery in the Hunter Valley;
Sauv Blanc, Verdelho, Semillon, Chardonnay and Bianco Puro (organic white).
We also have 2 house whites supplied by Kanberra Winery, a Riesling & a Viognier.
We have 2 reds from First Creek; Cabernet Sauvignon and a Late Harvest Shiraz. House reds from Kanberra Winery are Shiraz & Merlot.
There is also a full range of beer and spirits.
As of the 1st of November we'll being transitioning into being fully licienced and so we'll no longer be a BYO venue, hopefully we can cater for everyone's needs. We appreciate everyones patience while we were waiting for our liquor license to be approved.
Our next mission on the list of things to do is improve the acoustics of the restaurant. As much as we love how easy it is to keep the polished concrete floor clean, it does mean that when we're busy it can be fairly noisy. We're hoping that acoustic panels on the ceiling will mean that even on a busy night you can easily talk with people at your table.
We are certainly enjoying the process of creating a great space for you to come and enjoy Pha's cooking!
Warm Regards,PTK Staff
