Sam Thai & Pizza Capers via EatNow

Apologies for being MIA for the longest while! With the changing seasons resulting in a nasty flu going around, as well as people heading overseas I’ve been kept on my toes for the last month or so with Zumba covers – teaching up to five evenings a week. I pushed my body to the stage…

Thai Berry

It’s a pretty giddy feeling having your birthday fall close to a long weekend. I’ve been thankful that for the last couple of years my birthday has fallen on or around the October Labor Day long weekend, however it also coincides with the return of Daylight Savings so it means that any partying done on…

Monkey King Thai

A couple of years ago when I was still living with my folks, I remember the week we had new neighbours move in – a couple with three kids. They were friendly, quiet and easy-going, but it wasn’t the people that charmed us; it was the little bundle of fur by the name of Louis….

Home Thai

It’s funny how you can develop a taste for certain foods. Five years ago, I never touched sashimi, and now I wolf salmon nigiri down as though it were sweets. You could not have paid me to ever touch fresh oysters, but faced with my first oyster at a food event mid-this year, I slurped…

Eat Now/Hanuman Thai

I like to set some rules for myself. When I eat out, I hold nothing back. Entrees, croquettes, sides of truffle fries, why just have one dessert when you can sample two? This way, I get the most expansive perspective that I can of a restaurant’s menu – what’s good, what’s bad, what’s worth ordering again – all…

Khao Pla

I had been wanting to try a ramen joint in my part of town (Chatswood) for some time, but when we arrived on this evening around half past 7.00, the line was spilling out the door. Disheartened, we set in to wait before I remembered that I had spotted a new Thai restaurant on Victoria…

Chat Thai Westfield

Three people in the office are now undertaking what we’ve dubbed “The Food Challenge”. The aim of The Food Challenge is to develop healthy eating habits, and some of the rules that have been listed include: No biscuits (we primarily blame the free supply of Family Assorted from upstairs catering); No fro-yo runs; No chocolate,…

Longrain

I have to say, Sydney ranks up there as being downright miserable when it rains in winter! One week not too long ago it rained non-stop, and it was on a Friday evening that I was visiting Longrain Restaurant in Surry Hills with an all-ladies group. This wasn’t your usual group of six women though…

Yok Thai Tapas & Wine

I’ll start off by saying that the full name of this gorgeous Thai restaurant is actually Yok Thai Gub-Glam Tapas and Wines. The word ‘Gub-Glam’ is defined as food eaten with alcoholic drinks, or snacks eaten with or between drinks; the Thai word for ‘Tapas’, really. The Sister had showed me this place some time…
