Talks with authorities regarding premises
on the lighthouse property are progressing and we are very
pleased with the amenities on offer. The site will not have
the capacity for an especially large restaurant; however, we
do expect a fast table turnover, so noone will miss out.
We are hopeful that either of the politicians Mr Peter
Garrett AM, or Mr Malcolm Turnbull will be available to
officiate at the opening later this year. We have a
preference for Mr Garrett given his entertainment value,
though we are waiting to hear from Mr Turnbull regarding any
special abilities he might have to offer the evening.
Both the Byron Shire Echo and the Gold
Coast Bulletin spoke with Byron Bay representative Mavis V
Anthony last week. Mrs Anthony, who has been ill with swine
flu since her recent return from Tokyo, reports that
journalists from both newspapers were most congenial and
more pleasant than usual. Reports; however, that Whalo-king
is not sincere, are unfounded.
restaurant keeps 5 star Michelin Rating despite protests by
Rival sushi vendor Mojotoyo, with only a 3 star rating,
complained to Michelin authorities about Whalo-king’s 5 star
rating. We are pleased to confirm that Michelin inspectors
were more than happy to affirm their prior wisdom.
Mavis chuffed by local and international
Despite being stricken by swine flu, Whalo-king Byron Bay
representative Mrs Mavis Anthony said she is "Chuffed and
buoyed-up" by the encouragement people have given plans to
establish Australia's first Whalo-king restaurant in Byron
Bay, the country's most easterly point.
Speaking through a mask she said, "Whalo-king is a very
go-ahead company with a realistic attitude to taking care of
the environment that must be the envy of many fast-food
establishments the world over."
"To be frank the proposal to open Australia's first
whale-meat sushi restaurant at Byron Bay does have
detractors, but support has been very encouraging from all
over the world. Do you think I'm going to be deterred by a
handful of tree-hugging ratbags?"
Mrs Anthony likened support for Whalo-king to that received
in the local area for the Repco Rally in which rally cars
will travel at high speeds through high conservation value
"There's an old saying my late mother used to say, 'You
can't make an omelette without breaking eggs.' "
If people want to enjoy the taste, heath benefits and
environmental benefits from eating low carbon footprint,
sustainably harvested whale-meat, a little blood must be
spilt," Mrs Anthony added.
