It’s Sunday night, which means tomorrow is Monday. You could stay at home and iron a couple of long-sleeved shirts for the week ahead, but let’s face it, you’re gonna sit on the couch and watch TV and leave that chore to the morning. Forget that, head out to Aunty Ed’s, grab a great meal and catch some of the best live music in NSW! 6:00-8:00 pm, family-friendly, free event. Slack-off this Sunday and make the weekend last a little longerl
Reservations are recommended for booth seating, however, please note that booths will only be reserved for patrons intending to enjoy a meal . . . but don’t worry, if you’re just coming along for a drink and/or a nibble, there are communal tables and bar stools on the lower level. Aunty Ed’s offers full table service for diners.
What is Aunty Ed’s?:
The best-est and most kitschi-est slice of retro Australiana this side of Paul Hogan throwing a prawn on the barbie! Put on your best ‘thongs’ (those are flip-flops, or ‘flimsy sandals’ for our non ‘occa’ speaking friends) and head to Katoomba’s best ‘underground’ restaurant and bar (it’s not a secret, it’s literally under the ground in a basement – we’d keep it a secret but that’s bad for business). Forget small servings of deconstructed dishes that you saw last night on Masterchef (who wants a meal out that requires assembly anyway), think ‘chips, bits and gravy’, ‘beef brisket ”, or a ‘zucchini burger’ for those who choose to make friends with salad. Whilst the food might remind you of a time when your grandmother used to make you a spam sandwich before you went outside to run under a sprinkler (the smartest thing kids had to play with before iPhones), the bar is all about the best beer, wine and cider you can get your hands on today . . . but don’t worry – beer comes in ‘tinnies’ so you’ll feel right at home. If that doesn’t take the lamington, Aunty Ed’s is home to the best cocktails (and mocktails) in the Mountains. Long story short, the food is tasty, the bar is ‘fully stocked’ bro, and it’s family-friendly . . . and your Aunty is welcome.
Where is Aunty Ed’s?:
122 Katoomba Street, Katoomba. If you’re driving and hit Echo Point, Skippy or the Milkybar kid – turn around and ask for directions . . . unless you’re a man, in which case you continue driving until you’re ready to admit you’re lost.
. . . Who is Aunty Ed?:
There’s an Aunty Ed in every family. The one who never had kids of her own but knew family was more important than anything; who travelled far and wide but always called Australia home; who wasn’t afraid to break from tradition, making new ones of her own along the way; who was unconventional and unpredictable, but always loyal and dependable; who collected trinkets wherever she went, but knew memories were the best souvenirs; who was the keeper of all the family recipes and secret ingredients; There’s an Aunty Ed in every family.
