Went out for dinner at Raffety's, which happens to be one of the better places to eat in Benalla. Apparently we've been going to all the wrong places all the while.
Everything was excellent except the rhubarb crumble - I've concluded I don't like rhubarb. Creme brulee was excellent, so much so it inspired me to head home and attempt to recreate its goodness. Will blog about said attempt.
