These golden balls are mashed potato, cheese, onion and bacon, crumbed and deep fried.
Made by the cook, of course.
I did mean to save you one … but I forgot.

Phnom Penh dispatches: Something in the water in South-East Asia makes my clothes shrink. A bit more each day until I go home. Hmmm. Anyway, lashing out for lunch today: delicious duck and fresh hand-made noodles ($US4.50) at one of my fav tourist eateries, Davids Noodles…

Corn Fritter spheres with a poached egg, heavily seasoned parsley-and-radish salad, yoghurt, and a poppy seed & (mild) chilli dressing. $18.

Doing the X-word and trying a new drop, called Once Bitter (pot $3.50), at the Grocery Bar on Fitzroy Street, St Kilda. Made by Collins St Brewing Co (new to me), I’d place this beer in the “English Pale Ale” variety, with malt and hops in sensuous sync like tango dancers at a street cafe in Buenos Aires…
