Meatless Monday: Bodhi in the Park

As the Miss Eat-out-a-lot in my family and circle of friends, decisions on where we dine at are usually up to me. You'd think that I'd know my family best, but for some bizarre...

Yum cha at Kam Fook, Bondi Junction

I can't explain how much I love yum cha. The idea of spending hours with my nearest and dearest, sipping tea and sharing lots of little dishes of dumplings and deep-fried goodies... There's no...

Crazy Wings, Chatswood

Believe it or not, the concept of Crazy Wings didn't appeal to me until I had actually dined there. Char-grilled skewers of chicken wings, offal cuts and other meats and vegetables, mostly dusted with...
Sumac Restaurant, Darling Harbour

Sumac Restaurant

I had the duck as my main dish. The duck was coated with a coarse mixture of pistatios, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, macadamia nuts and sesame seeds, then panfried to a perfect pink, and the falafel cake was rich and crunchy. This was topped up with a sweet pilaf which was a heavenly marriage of figs and caramelised onion.

Spanish Tapas, Glebe

Spanish Tapas Restaurant (Glebe)

We chose the Spanish Tapas Restaurant because of it's capability to cater for large crowds. Here, we had a reunion of 20 from Strathfield Girls High School, class of 2001. I hadn't seen most of these girls since 2001! The staff were really helpful and ensured that we had a variety of tapas and paella. The atmosphere is rich and lively. We also got to enjoy a performance by the flamenco dancers!

Dooleys Bistro, Lidcombe

Dooleys Bistro, Lidcombe

I've always been a regular at Dooleys Bistro. And since they've introduced the $8 rump steak on Monday and Tuesday nights, I can now enjoy a quick bistro dinner at a great price. The kids meals are awesome too... at $8, you can choose from the fish and chips, nuggets and chips, spaghetti bolognaise, or the roast with vegies, and also get a free soft drink or juice, and ice-cream!
