Blue Cocos

More than one Cocos submission this week. Their reign of terror may be ending. This by Perineum. Weipa. Queensland.

So, it’s Weipa, right, and you’re there in the most unusual circumstances,
and it’s really, really fucking hot and the beautiful white beaches and
sparkling oceans are full of death and the only sanctuary is the Heritage
Thai restaurant, which is cool and inviting and due – it says here – to the
bar manager’s recent bout of madness is selling imported beer at
(relatively) affordable prices and you realise that they really do ‘do
things differently in FNQ’ and you are crying tears of joy and relief at the
craziness of all that surrounds you; the hilariously barbed menu items, the
decorative pot pouri of Polynesian, Canadian, Thai, faux French (both
provincial and Louis XVIII) and various other unidentifiable styles, and
especially the fake cocos palms outside and then at dusk you see that this
place just keeps on giving and you feel ashamed at your earlier smug city-boy condescension…

    so, these menus, they’re not one-offs are they? there is a whole demographic out there who find it terribly amusing to name dishes after politicians and parties.

    The wok can be a little chewy, I hear.

    I call “not-Cocos” on the blue thing.

    Need a botanist to back me up, now…
