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!

Potato Salad

You won’t see an awful lot of potato salad photos on social media.

In this day and age, where bright and eye catching content rules, the creamy white colour scheme of potatoes is hardly going to catch your attention – when there’s plenty of the rainbow coloured smoothies and OTT burgers that floods our social media streams. And just like how people may often choose menu items at cafes on the basis of how ‘Instagrammable’ they are, I too am sometimes guilt of selecting recipes which look pretty in favour of other less photogenic ones.

But most of my favourite recipes are infact, the not so good looking ones.

Just like this potato salad.

Bare Grill, La Perouse

$25 is pretty standard for the price of brunch in Sydney.

It will probably get you a big breakfast in most cafés, or an eggs benny and drink, or perhaps a slightly more substantial lunch dish. But if you want to take your $25 further, you’ve got to visit Bare Grill.

Left of Field x N2 – Queen’s Feast, Rhodes

Left of Field x N2 - Queen's Feast

For those of us hanging out in the ‘burbs, it’s not often that we get up to anything exciting after work- we don’t get the luxury of walking out of the office on Friday night, straight into the night life like the city dwellers! So when Left of Field announced their ‘Queen’s Feast’, a dinner collab with N2 Gelato, we couldn’t get out hands on those tickets quickly enough!We’re used to Left of Field by day, but with Queen tunes blaring out of speakers, and a dinner set up complete with tablecloths and blankets, it’s a completely different vibe at night!
