Turka, Crows Nest

TURKA Cafe Meze Bar, Crows Nest

You know you’re in for a good meal when you’re given two tables for a table for two.

I’ve only had Turkish food a handful of times and if there’s one thing I remember, it’s that it’s always a feast! And that’s the vibe we’re getting at Turka, which is filled diners with tables filled to the brim with delicious share plates. It’s a cosy Turkish cafe/meze bar located on the busy corner of Pacific Highway and Willoughby Road.

It’s a relatively new addition to the Crows Nest dining scene, one of the few Turkish restaurants in the area. And there’s plenty to choose from with an extensive breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. We’re eyeing the Turkish breakfast for our next visit, but we’re here first for dinner, a menu made of dips, cold meze and hot meze.

Thai Pumpkin Soup Recipe

Thai Pumpkin Soup

Spring is finally here (yay!). Whilst I do have some fantastic recipes saved for when the weather warms up, the cold rainy weather over the past week has meant there’s still time to indulge in comfort food for a little while longer!

Which is just as well as I haven’t really been posting many recipes lately. Sorry guys, recipes are just so time consuming to type up! But I’ll try to sneak in a couple more winter recipes before Spring truly arrives, starting with one my favourite recipes this winter.

DARE Delicious and Responsible Eating, Maroubra

DARE Delicious and Responsible Eating

A name can say a lot about a venue, and DARE Delicious And Responsible Eating, definitely describes it well. It might not be the flashiest of cafes, but it’s one you will easily grow to love, from the homey vibes of the interior to the warm service and nutritious menu options.

I mean, just look at the attention to detail in their glass of water- does your local cafe that has water that looks so pretty it could pass for an expensive cocktail? Read more
