Went to the Leveson Hotel on Friday( 09/06/06), to try out what was said to be the 'best parma in Melbourne', as rated by Superparma.com (http://www.superparma.com).
Ben had a law exam in the city earlier that day, so Alex and I, being highly procrastinating bums that we are, decided to join him in the city for yet another parma action.
Random shots around the law building and its vicinity while waiting around for Michael (yet another bum on the holy crusade to find the perfect parma.)
We hopped into Benjamin's car and drove around in the city until we found and located the infamous Leveson hotel. At the door, we were rather shamelessly greeted by this piece of advertisement:-
So we entered, ordered, and sat down. They waiting period was kind of uber long, and the pleasant, lullaby-esque sounds of workers drilling holes into the brick wall really helped us pass that time with enjoyment. By that, I mean it didn't.
Sometime after, our Parmas were served and ready to be devoured.
I have to say, for $18, it really wasn't very spectacular. Maybe my expectations were too high- but if this is the best parma that Melbourne can offer, I am very dissapointed. The meat was very fresh, and I couldn't possibly complain about the size - this mofo was huge, like it was made out of 2 chickens. But I think it was the overcooked cheese and too much oregano that put me off. Chips and salad, however, were good.
Will my search for the perfect parma ever end?
