My Australian friend Sam has just sent me this interesting story about Melbourne's newest restaurant, Beanz Meanz Heinz. Yes, that's right - it's a complete restaurant devoted to the worship of Heinz Beans. Amongst the many fine dishes you can appreciate there are Bean pizza (the "Crawf", named after one of the restaurant's founders and Heinz "face", Shane Crawford), Baked Bean and capsicum roesti and Pumpkin and Baked Bean pie. I do not see any mention of our favourite, the English Tartine, a.k.a. Beans on Toast.
The article includes this charmingly modest note:
The restaurant, in the popular beachside suburb of St Kilda, will be open for only two days to test its popularity, the company said today.
