Juan Bowl & Tea, Redfern

Juan Bowl & Tea

Unagi Hitsumabushi ($28)

There’s no shortage of good Japanese restaurants in Sydney, but if you’re looking for something that’s a little different to the standard sushi and ramen, you’ve got to check out Juan Bowl & Tea.

Lone Star Rib House, Top Ryde

Having spent the first 10 or so years of my life growing up in the west, Lone Star was always known to me as that funky looking house we drove past on the way to the shops. Not that I’d ever set foot in this Texas-inspired restaurant, but I can never forget its unique exterior. So when I realised there was another branch just 10 minutes away from work, I was keen to give it a go.

Lone Star, Top Ryde

Wild West Wind Beer Battered Onion Rings ($7.95)

A quick online search tells me that Lone Star was actually once large chain with 180+ stores in the US, now dwindled down to 4. And although Lone Star has also closed many doors in Australia, it seems to be doing better, with some 8 branches in NSW- including the Blacktown branch that I remember clearly.

God’s Creation, Balmain

God's Creation, Balmain

Not being from the area, I don’t hang around in Balmain very often, but it’s seems to be quite the spot for brunch. There seems to be no shortage of delicious food options, and in an area densely populated with trendy cafes you’ll be spoilt for choice for brunch.

Which naturally makes it hard for newcomers to standout. But it’s hard to miss God’s Creation, with their bright aqua green exterior.

Mocha ($3.50)

It’s by no means the only standout, and we can already tell we’re in for a bit of a treat when we start reading through the menu. With options like Prosciutto Omelette, scallop deluxe and black truffle toast it’s much fancier than your average neighbourhood cafe fare.

We’ve landed at God’s Creation today, thanks to an invite from Dr Social and God’s Creation and we honestly could not be more thankful for the invite to pull us out of the comfort zone of our own hood.

I Love Pho, Crow’s Nest

I Love Pho

House made Lemon Tea

I have enough trouble choosing from one pager brunch menus, so if you’re ever caught dining me with at Vietnamese, I sincerely apologise in advance for the length of time you’ll be waiting for me to decide on what to order. Especially when there’s a menu as enticing as the one at I Love Pho.

It might be a bit of a cheesy name, but it voices my thoughts exactly. I mean, who doesn’t like Pho?

Yuan’s Hot Pot, Haymarket

Yuan’s Hot Pot

The Winter weather has well and truly arrived. And as much as I loathe cold wintery mornings, it does mean perfect weather for hot pot!

Seriously, is there anything that screams warmth and comfort quite like a pot of hot soup bubbling away right in front of you? (If there is, I’d love to know!)

We’re loving the abundance of hot pot options that have popped up over the past couple of years. One of the newcomers in this area is Yuan’s Hot Pot. And because hot pot is not complete without good company, we’re here with a group of fellow passionate foodies that is the FCBA for a delicious lunch feed. And we sure left feeling satisfied!
