Now, these aren’t just any tacos and sliders. Their actually Breddos Tacos and The Slider Bar, and you would have seen just how delicious I thought they were when I had them at Hawker House. Sadly, I only had a bite of a taco, and only got to try one type of slider. This was all about to change…
None of our great decisions in life would have been made without a bad decision to start it all. This was our bad decision, which then can be debated as a great one. Boy and I ordered a sharing cocktail, Apocalypso Now. It was a lethal combination of Bacardi 8yo and Oakheart, navy and overproof rums, shaken with pineapple, apple, coconut and fresh orange and lemon juices. It’s described as their ‘favourite and most dangerous festival punch’, and shit was it strong.
Cocktails on fire are pretty though. Me like.
Once the excitement of that had disappeared, I was excited for a whole other reason…
We had gotten a little carried away with ordering. I wanted to try everything! When we ordered, the waiter was all “that’s a lot”. Oh please. He doesn’t know who he’s talking to.
We didn’t know which of the tacos to get, but thankfully they had a Taco Tray with one of each taco. Spiced Chestnut Mushroom, Jerk Pulled Pork, Crunchy Nut Fried Chicken (how cool does that sound?), Twice Fried Cod Cheeks and 10hr Chipotle Beef Short Rib. Mmmmm.
It would be hard to eat just one bite of each and have to share the other. But I guess that’s what comes with sharing, dammit.
We decided we’d conquer the tacos first.
Next up was the whole reason we came to The Player in the first place – the sliders. Oh, the sliders.
How gorgeous are they?
Now, they don’t offer a tray to try each of them, so we had to be picky. Off the menu, we ordered the Short Rib Slider, The Breddo and the Crunchy Nut, and off the specials we got the Double Classic and the Chorizo Slider. Let the tasting begin.
