More Animal Puffs from Doux Amour Plus Uncle Tetsu’s Cheese Tarts

I’ve added two water animals to my collection of cute choux conquests from Doux Amour. The bright purple taro-flavoured octopus and the whale with a vanilla and blueberry filling. Cutting open Mr Octopus reveals a vibrant purple inside. It’s distinctly taro and extremely creamy, which is a big plus. I did like that the little…

Dee Why Hotel’s Famous Trufflenator Burger, May 2017

If there’s one thing you should try from the Dee Why Hotel’s Brasserie menu, it’s their Famous Trufflenator burger. Double wagyu patty, truffle mayo, truffle butter, infused havarti cheese, truffle maple syrup, crispy bacon, American cheddar, onion rings, all sandwiched between a sweet Japanese milk bun. Size-wise, the burger actually didn’t look as large as…

Chatswood’s Chao Ba Revisited, May 2017

It’s been over a year since we first ate at Chao Ba in Chatswood’s Concourse and we were eager to try different dishes from the menu to see if their other offerings were just as good as last time’s. To start, we had the prawn and crab spring rolls. These were plump mini springs rolls…

All About Pho: Eastwood’s Pho Gia Hoi, Feb 2016

Pho Gia Hoi offers up a Vietnamese menu that’s in a similar vein to Me Pho and Tan Viet. Funnily enough, the 3 competitors are also located along the same stretch of road in Eastwood. Upon inspection though, Pho Gia Hoi’s menu is more extensive than the other two’s. We ordered the net rice paper…

The OHBAR Thai @ Sydney, Apr 2017

The Ohbar Thai offers up a bar and dining experience and with its large, orange-lit “The Ohbar” sign at the corner of Liverpool St, it’s hard to miss.

Not far from Circular Quay is the bustling Four Frogs Creperie. The eatery has a seating area as well as a window for takeaway. On offer is a selection of sweet crepes and savoury crepes (called galettes). For sweet, the simple but tasty butter and sugar was a sure pick. The crepe was thin and fairly crispy around the…
