I Love Pho

*Thanks Mike from Ompty for treating us to this visit to I Love Pho I Love Pho, doesn’t everyone?! I Love Pho in Crows Nest loves pho so much, they were named just that. The restaurant accommodates both an indoor dining and al fresco seating, and given the chill of the day and the nature…

*La Sen

*Thanks Ompty for sending us out to La Sen! La Sen is Vietnamese for lotus leaf, and the perfect name for a little family owned restaurant in the vibrant Randwick Spot. The restaurant itself is narrow and reminds me of the street eateries in Asia with its bright colours and that familiar aroma of incense…

Bite Chew Drink

  Bite Chew Drink resides in Regent Place and is a casual Korean-American eatery developing a touch of infamy for loading their dishes with a stack of melted cheese.    Wanting to grab a quick yet delicious bite to eat before going out, Bite Chew Drink seemed to tick all our boxes. Plus, they allow BYO…

* Originals Burger Co.

Thank you Jason from Spooning Australia for the invite to this visit.  Stepping into Originals Burger Co felt like stepping out of Brookvale and into an American eatery. It was the detail that facilitated our transportation – think Rock n Roll music, booths to chow in and American pastime memorabilia on the walls… you get the idea. The…

* Burgers By Josh

Thank you to Jason from Spooning Australia (@spooningaust) for the invite to Burgers by Josh. Burgers by Josh (BBJ) have taken over the Annandale Hotel, setting up in the space just past the main bar. They kicked things off here with their ‘McDowell’s Monopoly Menu’ – a tongue in cheek response to Maccas, offering a…

Yayoi

Yayoi has been a restaurant that has been in and out of my radar all year. I walk past it all the time in Galleries since it’s opened and I’ve looked at the menu so many times.  Finally, I got around to trying it on a chilly evening in the city after much contemplation. The little restaurant’s location…

Coast 175

As one of the most well known long standing cafes in Ettalong, Coast has been a local favourite for those who live around the Peninsula.  As one of the first cafes that have truly started the big cafe movement in the Central Coast, it’s no wonder it’s always buzzing.  The cafe is filled with natural light and…

Frugii

On recent trip to Canberra, I couldn’t help but notice how the active food scene is thriving in this small state. Everywhere you go there is a fantastic cafe, restaurant or take-away place just around the corner. I only managed to visit a handful of places, but no doubt I’ll be back to try more.  One of…

Ormeggio

The word ‘spit’ is an unnecessary visualization accompanied with an air of disgust, so when I hear a restaurant’s location ‘at the Spit’, the first thought that comes to mind isn’t fine dining.  Low and behold, Ormeggio sits just there in one of the most inconvenient locations to a non-local, before the moving temperamental bridge with not…
