We were zipping along the Mallee Highway on New Years Day, and it was stinking hot. Given the heat we had no plans to eat out of the back of the Patrol, so we popped into Ouyen where we came across the Mallee Deli.

I was fortunate to try their apparently famous "Mallee Lamb Wrap" and it was delicious. Mouth watering pieces of jiucy tender lamb in a tortilla style wrap. Yuuuuummmmmyyyy!!!!!!!

The family all enjoyed their other offerings, but the wrap was a standout.

Great little place. I lived there for two and a half years in the early 80's. Hot in summer tho. Some greatplaces for a stop over nearby. Walpeup Lake, Pink Lakes near Underbool, Hattah Kulkyne, Raak country west of Hattah. Loved the surrounding towns names. Patchewollock, Speed, Tutty, Managatang, underbool, Timberoo, Galah and Galah South, Beulah, Bronzewing, Watchemacallit?

Cheers. Mick

Long time ago but the name is familiar. Had a lot to do with the SEC boys. Mate of mine was there, Mick "Wolf" Davies (Mildura boy) and I think the head bloke of the SEC then was Russell Cox. I lived above the State Bank with one of the local ambo's. Left early 1985.

We stopped for lunch at ouyen at the Bakery the following Friday - 4th Jan, It boasts great Vanilla Slices, but it was also a great place for lunch. Had a "For Sale" sign out the front though...

these places beat the RoadHouses any day.

So, Bucky, does that mean we should bring you something from the Birchip Bakery when we head your way???

I'm going to put in a plug for the Rainbow Bakery...they're pretty good too.

HI Stuart,
We'' be down that way in a week or two and will give it a go.
Where is the Mallee Deli - is it on the main drag through town?
Cheers,
Glen

The Bakery in Ouyen, I was talking about, is in the Main Street, just down from the "Round-a-bout", and opposite the Chemist.

Is there another ?
