The Palace Hotel, Broken Hill

3 comments

We’ve been told that the Palace Hotel is a restaurant which you must go to when you’re in Broken Hill. Not only is it one of the only two places where it’s legal to play two-up all through the year, but it’s also one of Broken Hill’s most iconic building, where Priscilla was filmed.

It’s also surprisingly busy, as we found out when we rocked up only to be told there’d only be a table available at 8:30. Luckily there’s a bar and pool table to keep us occupied whilst we wait, and if you go to the hotel side of the building, there’s quite impressive artwork to be seen on the walls!

Shoestring Fries with Herbs and Yoghurt (Lge $8.50)

The dining space is rather fancy, with a really unique outback atmosphere from the bush paintings on the wall. Service can be slow when it’s busy, but we’re not in a rush so it’s not an issue for us.

Hocko's Chicken Shop, Broken Hill

We'd been given a little town tour by the uni on our arrival to Broken Hill, some 5 week ago now, and had driven past this cute little corner takeaway store. It's called Hocko's Chicken Shop, but we had misread it to be Hocko's Chicken Soup so when we rocked up on a cold day expecting some warm chicken soup, we were a little surprised to when we read the menu. 

There's no chicken soup in sight, but there is plenty of fried chicken and burgers which sounds just as good!

Tydvil Bistro, Broken Hill

4 comments

There isn't a great lot of places open at night in Broken Hill- the pubs are really the only the place to go. We'd been to Tydvil Hotel previously with friends for drinks but spied the waffles from the bistro at the last minute and decided to go for some waffles instead of a drink- and they were so good we decided we'd come back for a proper meal!

Tydvil bistro is a small dining area next to the pub. It's nicely set up, but like any pub bistro the service is minimal- grab a table, grab some menus, order at the counter and wait for your food to come. They specialise mostly in steaks and schnitzels, with a complete menu dedicated to schnitzels and various toppings you can add on top.
