West Juliett, Marrickville

We are very lucky people here in Australia. We have some of the best beaches, clean air and most importantly some of the best cafes in the world. As part of my day job...

Eaton Chinese Restaurant, Ashfield

Bits and bobs about Eaton Restaurant have been entering my consciousness for several years now... However, it wasn't until recently that I finally dined there. Ashfield may be known for its abundance of Shanghainese restaurants,...

Rhodes Phoenix, Yum Cha

I have just discovered a local Yum Cha that is comparable to those in the City. Rhodes Phoenix is neatly tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Rhodes Shopping Centre (also home to giant outlet Ikea). It is the 4th child of the Phoenix Restaurants family, the other siblings being Sky Phoenix, Hilltop Phoenix and Manly Phoenix; so I suppose it's success isn't really that surprising.

Hello Happy, Strathfield

Last Monday would have been just another girly catch-up dinner at CeCi in Strathfield had I not discovered Hello Happy (to which I squealed with excitement). As you may have noticed, I'm a regular at...

Miss Peaches, Newtown

Reputation is a bitch - once you have one, it generally stays with you for life. I have this friend who had a reputation in high school of being kind of dopey and as...
Yum Cha at Crystal seafood Restaurant, Strathfield

Yum Cha at Crystal Seafood Restaurant, Strathfield

Early Sunday morning, crowds gather amongst the steps of this restaurant to wait for a seat. Towards the busier afternoon, numbered tickets are handed out to ensure that it's a smooth process (yes, hungry yum-cha goers can sometimes make a scene if the queue is unjustified). Once our number is called, we feel a sense of pride... as though we've just won exclusive entrance to a celebrity fested event. I felt everyone's envy as we were hushed into the busy restaurant.

Hip Hop Chicken Shop at The Carrington, Surry Hills, Sydney

If you read my last post (I don’t know why you wouldn’t, but it’s great… I’ll help you, it’s right here ;-) ) I said sneakers and fried chicken are a big part of my...
Strata Poca, Strathfield

Stra Pocha (Korean BBQ), Strathfield

It is hard to miss Stra Pocha- a smokey red building opposite the Strathfield railway station (on the quieter side). At 6.30pm, this Korean BBQ restaurant was packed with locals. When we ordered the 'special hot sauce BBQ chicken' the waitress whom had limited-english, warned us that it was very hot and we weren't allowed to make a complaint if it was unedible. This was enticing enough for us to order without hesitation. I love my food fiery hot.
