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.

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.

A Foodie’s Guide to Taste of Coogee 2018

Taste of Coogee 2018

It’s that time of the year again, time for the annual Taste of Coogee festival! And whilst there are also plenty of other foodie festival on this weekend, this is one you won’t want to miss. A beautiful beach backdrop, a festival entirely dedicated to food and booze, two days worth of fun- what’s not to love?

It’s been six years running, and it seems to be getting bigger and better every year. Held in Coogee Oval, it’s a large space but only just large enough to contain the massive crowds it’s drawn from all over Sydney. Seriously, if you’re planning on coming to Taste of Coogee, leave plenty of time just lining up to get in, it is that popular!

(pro tip, try the Brook Street entrance or book online- the lines are much shorter!)

Sugar Ray’s Bar, Surry Hills

Sugar Ray's Bar, Surry Hills

Surry Hills is full of great dining spots and although I’m more often in the area for brunch, there is so much more on offer. We’re here at the recently opened Sugar Ray’s Bar today, on the busy corner of Crown and Cleveland streets, the spot previously occupied by Iris Black.

Although it’s not exactly vibing when we visit at opening time at the beginning of the week, we’re actually loving the comfy homey feel of the studded leather lounges and framed photos on the wall. Mostly of sports, Sugar Ray’s Bar is a US Sport bar afterall!
