Unlimited seafood is worth clearing an afternoon for. Unlimited mussels — well, that's worth a road trip as well. On Sunday, November 24, prepare to mosey on down to Miami Marketta on the Gold Coast, because that's where you'll find as many molluscs as you can devour over the course of three hours.
The venue's returning All-You-Can-Eat Mussel Festival will unleash a horde of fresh-cooked mussels from 12–3pm, with as many as you can eat all included in the $35 ticket price. Munch your way through four different kinds: mussels with white wine, garlic and lemon; Asian chilli tomato-flavoured mussels; mussels with seafood velouté and mussels with apple cider.
Because the festival is happening when Miami Marketta is usually closed, mussels will be the main attraction. Of course, if you're heading to an event serving them up on an all-you-can basis, then you're already primed — not to mention hungry, naturally.
