Norton Plaza Community Kitchen Garden

Norton Plaza Community Kitchen Garden
While walking around Norton Plaza I often noticed signs referring to the Norton Plaza Community Kitchen Garden located on the rooftop. It wasn’t until my mum came to visit that I actually decided to explore the garden. After misreading a sign and trying to go up a fire exit we found the lift and took it to level 2. At first it’s a bit disorientating because you enter the sterile business side... 

Pickwicks in Enmore

Pickwicks in Enmore
We are all in such a hurry these days, we need to slow down and enjoy that bottle of red over a gorgeous meal. Pickwicks is the place to do it! An intimate venue with loads of character on Enmore Road. I have been walking by this restaurant since it opened without trying it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Saturday night the planets aligned and 3 of us got together for dinner. First stop was the bottleshop... 

Jolly Cafe, Leichhardt

Jolly Cafe, Leichhardt
Hi Inner Westies, I want to introduce our Guest Blogger Ashleigh. She has recently moved to the beautiful suburb of Leichhardt and will be sharing her exploration of the area with us. I don’t visit Leichhardt nearly enough so I’m excited to hear about places to check out. I moved to Leichhardt just over a month ago. This is where my dad grew up and he has often lead me and my family on... 

Rosa’s Kitchen in Sydenham

Rosa's Kitchen in Sydenham
  This blog is long overdue as I visited Rosa’s Kitchen way back at the end of last year. I remember braving torrential rain to get there, but the great food and coffee was worth the rain soaked shoes. I indulged in Rosa’s Tasting Plate, which was fig and walnut sourdough with fresh ricotta, chill jam, tomato, avocado and a hot mini chorizo muffin! Sounds delicious, and it was! My... 

Kuki Tanuki Japanese Bar, Erskineville

Kuki Tanuki Japanese Bar, Erskineville
I’m back! I’ve spent the last couple of months entertaining in-laws from overseas, taking them on an eating tour around Sydney and throughout the Inner West and have been an all-round tour guide extraordinaire. Well that’s my excuse for being a slacko in my posting and I’m sticking to it! Since food has been a major part of my Christmas and holiday break I thought I should... 

The Kick Inside, Erskineville

The Kick Inside, Erskineville
Earlier this week my sister and I were heading to King Street for a late lunch when the meatballs special on The Kick Inside chalkboard caught our eye and pulled us into the cafe. Meatballs wouldn’t be my usual pick on a Summer’s day in Sydney, but this Summer weather is proving to be anything but summery, so the meatballs were a perfect pick for this particular chilly day. I love a good... 

Cafe Sopra on Dank Street

Cafe Sopra on Dank Street
Ahhh… the joy of food. It doesn’t get much more joyful than the food at Cafe Sopra on Dank Street. The food is amazing, hallellujah kind of amazing! I have my friend Ali to thank for introducing me to this place. She recommended I try the meatballs and they are out of this world. Meatballs, pasta, salads and desserts to die for! Without a doubt the menu board will have something to delight... 

Newbies on the block: Double Roasters in Marrickville

Newbies on the block: Double Roasters in Marrickville
I was so excited last week when I discovered a new cafe had opened up in my own backyard of Marrickville. How could I resist popping in on the weekend to check it out. The fitout is gorgeous and I love the donkey that greets you at the door. There are lots of things that I love about the newbie on the block, Double Roasters in Marrickville: 1. It is within walking distance from my house – yippeee! 2.... 

The Pie Tin… The Art of Pie

The Pie Tin... The Art of Pie
So who’s been to The Pie Tin in Newtown? Combine one of my favourite foods, potato, with a choice of about a zillion different delicious pies and you have the keys to my heart. The Pie Tin has a huge range of handmade sweet and savoury pies which are baked daily on the premises. It opened in about March of this year (I think) and if you haven’t been yet, add it to the list of great places... 

Edamame Sushi in Marrickville

Edamame Sushi in Marrickville
I love Japanese food so I was very happy when Edamame Sushi opened its doors a couple of months ago and joined the Marrickville Road food strip. The “Opening Soon” sign had been in the window for quite some time so I was excited when I walked past a couple of months ago to find it opened, not so excited that I had already eaten dinner and couldn’t try it out straight away. But as...
