Holidaying in Mooloolaba isn’t exactly conducive to early mornings wake ups. But I’ll give you three reasons that will: the sound of a squeaky bed next door (presumably testing out the quality of the mattress), room service crashing through because the “do not disturb” sign was not on the door and a Hot Pipis breakfast.
The Sunshine Coast heat ain’t the only thing that’s hot on the esplanade, juicy meatballs picked up from the meat market at the local Surf Club the night before is packed with torn basil and oregano covered in a chunky “secret” tomato relish hinted with chilli that really sizzles. A seafood curry is 28 degrees, sunny and fine in a bowl of fresh prawns, mussels, calamari rings, scallops and chunks of snapper gently cooked in a fragrant smooth Thai red coconut curry balancing spices, herbs and chilli-willi.
So the quality of the mattress might not be high next door, but where you will find it on the Sunshine Coast is in a Hot Pipis dish.
