Pie Tin – Newtown

Today I thought I’d share with you one of my favourite places to eat in Newtown. I’ve eaten from here countless times, so I’m going to give you a cumulative rather than a one...
La Grande Bouffe, Rozelle

La Grande Bouffe, Rozelle

Over the last year, I have grown more and more in love with my new neighbourhood. A local café/restaurant that I particularly adore is La Grande Bouffe. It's a small corner French eatery that...
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.
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.

Auburn-Baladna-Pastry

Auburn Baladna Pastry

I've made my own baklava at home plenty of times. While it's fun mixing and matching different nuts, syrup to pastry ratio and wacky shapes, nothing beats walking into a baklava pastry store. The huge display here offers more varieties of baklava than you can imagine.

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...
Hyang-Won-Korean-Restaurant, Strathfield

Spicy hot pot… ready for Winter

Strathfield is where I go when I want something local, quick and fast. There are Korean restaurants across every main street. Today, we decided to revisit Hyang Won, which is popular for the hot pots or barbeques. I love the spicy octopus, marinated beef, tofu and vegetable hot pot. Priced at $35, it is more than enough to feed 2 people... served piping hot with typical Korean condiments (kimchi, fish cakes, seaweed salad and caramelised potatoes).

Righetto Osteria Romana, Haberfield

Ever wish you could jump on the next plane to Italy and be there in time to have an authentic Italian dinner that evening? Well now you can! Except all you need to do...
