As some of you may or may not know, I’ve been sharing my weekends with attendees of the I Ate My Way Through Cabramatta tours. I’ll be continuing the tours throughout October during the Crave Sydney International Food Festival and then monthly after that. It’s been such a rewarding experience, getting to meet and eat with people from all walks of life. Here’s a press clipping from a mention in last week’s edition of City Hub and City News! Woohoo!

Backstage Blogger Tours
Food bloggers are often the first to find great suburban ethnic gems. If you’ve always wanted to uncover the hidden Vietnamese treasures of Cabramatta but don’t know your Banh Xeo (Vietnamese savoury crepes) from your Banh Mi Thit (pork rolls), let Jennifer from Jenius:The Spectacular Culinary Adventures of a Sydney Gen Y, and Betty of Betty’s Bites take you on an amazing foodie adventure. Jen, who is far from a vegetarian, tells me that her favourite Cabramatta restaurant (of the moment) is Duy Linh Vegetarian Restaurant for “their vegetarian take on pho (Vietnamese beef noodle soup)!” Jen says Vietnamese cuisine is significant to her because “while I’ve been born and raised in Australia, both my parents grew up in Vietnam. I love the cultural significance of certain dishes and how there’s a family story behind them. Taste-wise, I adore the clean and simple flavours which is reflective of the lifestyle over there.” www.iatemywaythrough.com/tours.html

Jennifer is the founding blogger of I Ate My Way Through (originally, Jenius.com.au). Growing up in the multicultural melting pot of Sydney’s Inner West as a second generation Australian (of Vietnamese refugee parents of Teochew Chinese ancestry), Jen has always had a deep curiosity about global cuisines, culinary heritage and the cultural assimilation of immigrants. For Jen and her family, food is always at the centre of all celebrations, life events and milestones. A lover of the finer things in life, as well as cheap eats, her blogging ethos is all about empowering and inspiring people to expand their culinary repertoire. When not running her two companies (she is also the Managing Director of The Bamboo Garden online marketing agency), Jen can be found exploring old-world charms at vintage markets and delving into local eats around the world. She has a weakness for fried chicken.

    Sounds fun- will definitely have to join you if I ever get a free weekend! What’s your take on Thanh Binh? We ate there recently (picked straight out of the GFG) and while the food was ok, we were turned straight off by a big fat caterpillar crawling through the salad! They gave us a complimentary orange in consolation though… :S
