Fire House – House Fire

Foodscape rather than landscape for a change. Balclutha has a new eatery and what a refreshing change for the South! We drove over to look at people’s Christmas tree lights and paid our first (of many) visits to Casafuego, a Mexican-themed all day and much-of-the-night place. It’s a totally new take on things – the only sombrero is on a corpse (well a skeleton in a hammock above the bar) which suggests they want to set Casafuego apart from anything else.

Despite appearance drinks come quite quickly!

So neat to find anywhere to eat at all southern-wide after 10pm. It will make the life of this long-distance gardener a lot more interesting – and well-nourished.

Great sound system too and a different mix, in half an hour we had some ACDC, Dexy’s Midnight Runners, Soft-Cell and Mellencamp, nothing modern – Don’t know if that’s a thing but it works here.

Something different on the menu


Housefire as far as I can tell – the building is the former Balclutha fire station – built 1923
