Pubs goes barmy over parmi nod

Chefs and staff at the Tydvil Hotel are “parmi partying it up” after being nominated for Best Parmi in NSW.
Fifteen hotels have been selected by the Australian Hotel Association NSW in the Best Parmi category.
Tydvil Hotel publican Eric Hanna said it feels good to have been nominated and to be up against some other great pubs in the state.
“This isn’t just a regional thing it’s Sydney, Bryon Bay, everything, it covers the whole state,” Mr Hanna said.
“We’re just a quiet little corner pub in Broken Hill having a go.”
Mr Hanna and chefs at the Tydvil Hotel said it’s incredibly rewarding to be recognised for their parmis, considering the parmi is an Aussie favourite and regularly served at pubs across the nation.
Mr Hanna said the chefs do a great job, with the Tydvil Hotel serving on average around 100 meals a night over a five-day period.
“They put a lot of work into what they do, bit of love into the sauces and the flavours that they make,” Mr Hanna said.
A “parmi party” at the Tydvil Hotel could become a reality for locals if the pub manages to take out the title of Best Parmi at the AHA NSW Awards.
“I reckon the locals will appreciate that, we get a lot of support from our locals and they love that the food’s consistent,” Mr Hanna said.
Mr Hanna and “maitre d” Heidi Hanna will be heading over to Sydney on November 19, for the AHA NSW Awards Ceremony at the Star Event Centre.
“Hopefully to bring a trophy back,” Mr Hanna said.
