Though we do have a handful of good cafes in the Hills, my favourites still happen to be the ones much farther away, such a Dining & Co, a good 35 minute drive away in North Ryde. So when I found out that they were opening up a second branch in Castle Towers (replacing Bellacinno) i.e. less than 10 minutes away, I was stoked!
Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon & Caviar ($19)
The last time I can remember going on a picnic was in primary school. And when you leave 12 year olds in charge of bringing food, all you’ll get are cakes, chocolate and chips (or Korean onion rings because we’re Asian).
If anything, that experience taught me that snacks are no replacement for real food!
