Nan Tien Temple, Wollongong

Lunch at Nan Tien Temple, Wollongong

The Nan Tien Temple is the largest Buddhist temple in the southern hemisphere... so it has kind of become a tourist attraction for any visiting relatives. And depite the rain yesterday, it was no exception for my great aunt. The temple is gloriously tranquil, filled with the grandeur of giant monuments, fancy landscapes and rich chandeliers. The dining hall, too, maintained the airy and peaceful ambience, with Buddha statues, soothing chants in the background and staff whom were extremely quiet and courteous. The vegetarian lunch set menu is available on Tuesdays to Fridays, 11am - 2pm, and on weekends from 11:30am until 2:30pm.

A veritable feast of dishes at Oriental Teahouse

Sydney Beijing Restaurant, Ashfield

Sydney Beijing Restaurant

Zen's constant craving for Peking Duck drove him into taking me to Sydney Beijing Restaurant, at Ashfield. We chose the Sydney Beijing Restaurant because after a quick search in Google, we couldn't help but notice the number of Chinese bloggers commenting at this restaurant's similarity to the original flavours in Beijing.

Tim Ho Wan: Michelin-star Christmas yum cha banquet

A cornucopia of Christmas colours started slowly filling the dining table as many bloggers and top Zomato food reviewers began to feast with their eyes (and no doubt contemplate the Instagram photo possibilities). I had...
