With so many people driving north these holidays, I thought I’d offer up my favourite Pacific Highway food pit stop.
It’s called the Salty Dog Seafood Café and Gallery, and after travelling the highway between Sydney and Taree numerous times, I can attest to it being pretty much the best food on the highway.
It’s located in Coolongolook (just north of Bulahdelah) and has a focus on locally caught seafood - including excellent Wallis Lake Oysters.
For a clever left-field choice, try their prawn and bacon loaded potato skins - perfect with a bottle of Matilda Bay's Minimum Chips.
And don’t forget to check out their house-made jams and locally crafted wood items in the gallery while you’re waiting.
