Chilli Jam Thai Restaurant, Concord

So when I talk about Thai food to others, people often ask me 'have you been to Holy Basil?' Thank goodness I can finally say yes or the other question would be 'have you been to Chilli Jam'. I always hear good things about it so I have been quite curious to check it out myself plus how can I ever say no Thai food?!

Vivaz, The Rocks

A Brazilian BBQ restaurant that turns into a Salsa club is a first that I have heard. The restaurant had a very old school feel to it, even the decor and seating was old school - twas quite interesting. The first thing  I notice as soon as I stepped in was this mountain of alcohol all stacked up, maximising the table space and waiting for someone to come and drink it all..

Hello there

MaMa Ka'Z Banana Bread

A thank you to Abbie Thompson from Polkadot PR for delivering me this gigantic hamper filled with lots of baked goodies by MaMa Ka'Z. I am someone who isn't the biggest fan of bananas; I will eat it if I have to and when I visit a juice bar, I will always ask them to take out the bananas. Banana bread however is a completely different story.

Oreo Truffles - Valentines Day Special

So Valentines Day is coming up and as some of you may know, I am not that big of a fan of the day itself  (#FactNumberOne) BUT I decided to still whip up something special for you girls (or boys) that want to make something special for your man, partner, lover or whoever it may be.

Holy Basil, Canley Vale

I have finally step foot onto the famous restaurant in Canley Vale, Holy Basil. I was finally here to try their famous fried ice cream. Everyone always raves on about it, people line for over 30 minutes for a table and half the times, their fried ice creams even run out. Is it really all that good and worth the wait?

Flavours of Peking, Castlecrag

Ok so I am a bit late in posting about CNY and all the food and festivities associated with it but I guess it is better late than never. Technically speaking, I am not that late because CNY is still on for another week or so. CNY to my friends and I translates to an excuse for us to pig out on a succulent peking duck aka a duck fest. Unfortunately the phone at Grape Garden Peking Restaurant didn't pick up their phone for numerous days (serious question - anyone know why?) but nevertheless, so long there would be duck, I can't complain.
