    Hello,

    Round three of the extraordinary culinary adventures of Pointy, iBrez, and Agamemnus saw us delve deep into AFL scrubland - Collingwood. Despite being home to the infamous footy club, Collingwood does provide some tasteful and classy eating establishments, and we tried our luck with Rockwell and Sons

    Restaurant 3 Rockwell and Sons - 23.09.16
    The full crew: @Pointy, @iBrez, @Agamemnus, @SeaGrunter, @Fenix
    What we ordered:
    To Share: Deviled Eggs, Buffalo Style Pork Hocks, Deep Fried Duck Balls, Chips and Tater tots
    Entree/Main:
    Pointy: Fried Chicken Sandwich
    iBrez: Double Patty Smash Burger
    Ag: Fancy Hot Dog
    Drinks:
    Pointy: NZ Pale Ale, Pirate Life Hopco
    iBrez: NZ Pale Ale, Pirate Life Hopco
    Ag: NZ Pale Ale, Pirate Life Hopco

    Summary
    Pointy says:
    Beginning with the Devilled Eggs, the plate was wonderfully warmed and prepared for the oncoming onslaught. The Pork Hocks with Buffalo Sauce were beautiful, displaying a slight crunchy edge to a succulent meat.
    The Fried Chicken Sandwich (featuring Buttermilk Dressing, Iceberg and Hot Sauce) was comfortably the best chicken burger I have ever eaten. The chicken was soft and moist and cooked to perfection, and the sauces perfectly balanced. The flavours were so perfect, in fact, that I almost lamented another swig of my beer as I was savouring the sweet residue of the creation.
    Having said that, the NZ Pale Ale Pirate Ale suited the meal perfectly. Another beer I will have to chase and stock in my personal reserves as soon as possible.
    All the above was remarkably well with-in a nice budget.
    With the quality of the chicken cooking supreme, the Wednesday night chicken extravaganza is definitely on my "Must Do" list
    The only down-side was the luck-lustre service. We had to beckon the waiters at every stage to progress our meals and drinks.

    Pork hocks were fantastic 10 out of 10.
    Chips and tater Tots were also fantastic nine out of ten.
    Pirate beer was great 8 out of 10.
    Deviled eggs were solid 7 out of 10.
    Deep fried duck was ok 5/10.
    Hot dog was just a good hotdog 5 out of 10. Wish I got what iBrez ordered.
    Staff were pretty bad and actually nearly kicked us out at one point thinking we didn't actually have a booking.

    I went back with Elisha and had the crispy chicken on a Wednesday night. Was great, but not unbelievably so. 8/10
