Paesanella Food Emporium in Marrickville is OPEN!

Paesanella Food Emporium in Marrickville is OPEN!
Foodies rejoice! Marrickville just keeps getting better and better. I have watched with interest the development of the Paesanella Food Emporium over the last couple of months, but it wasn’t until yesterday that I ventured inside. I’m kicking myself now for not going earlier. Paesanella Cheese, is an Australian family owned business that has been operating out of a factory in Marrickville... 

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... 

Marrickville Road is full of surprises

Marrickville Road is full of surprises
It’s not everyday you can walk down a street and say “There is a shark on the roof!” It is also a very strange thing to be seeing in the Inner West of Sydney, not a well known area for shark spotting. For those of you that may not be familiar with Marrickville Road, it has some interesting roof art going on. The shark on the end of a fishing line above the Marrickville Seafood shop... 

Yum Cha in Marrickville

Yum Cha in Marrickville
My hubby is a huge fan of Yum Cha and up until now we usually go to the city or the massive Chinese restaurant at Homebush (Rhodes Phoenix) to get our fix. Actually, the only way to get my husband to agree to go to Ikea at Homebush is if Yum Cha is the reward. But I recently drove down Marrickville Road on a Sunday and noticed people queuing out the door and around the corner of the Hung Cheng Chinese... 

Recovering from my meat coma at Kelby’s Cafe

Recovering from my meat coma at Kelby's Cafe
For the last month, while in South America my food intake has basically consisted of meat, bread and red wine, so visiting Kelby’s Cafe on my first morning back in Oz I was so happy to be able to order my favourite breakie, ‘The Egyptian’ (sweet potato, fetta and dukkah served on chunky hommus toast with poached eggs $13)! The mixed berry and apple frappe completely hit the spot... 

Christmas Season

Christmas Season
The Christmas season is well and truly here – ready or not here comes Santa! Is it just me or has this year just flown by. Well if you need any help getting into the Christmas spirit on the 18 and 19 December (10am-2pm) there will be live entertainment and Christmas Carols on Marrickville and Illawarra Roads. “Get Folked”, “The Sparrows” and Juggler Extraordinaire”... 

Post Cafe Marrickville

Post Cafe Marrickville
I recently received a recommendation from a fellow Inner Westie on facebook to go and check out Post Cafe in Marrickville. After another hard day of renovating, we were starving. We headed up to the cafe for what I thought was a late lunch on Sunday arvo, only to find the cafe absolutely packed – inside and out. There is an extensive menu and a very attractive dessert bar that was tempting me... 

Festival fever in Marrickville despite the crappy weather

Festival fever in Marrickville despite the crappy weather
Waking to the sound of pouring rain on Sunday did not bring a smile to my face. It was Marrickville Festival day – what a disaster. My only positive thought was that the festival wasn’t kicking off until 11am – maybe the weather might improve by then. No such luck. I headed up to Marrickville Road around lunchtime and had to jump over puddles and raging rivers in some laneways. But... 

Cafe New Deli, Marrickville

Cafe New Deli, Marrickville
No kitchen, no fridge, no kettle, no clean surface anywhere! Currently renovating a 2 bedder in Marrickville and what am I to do without any of the basics needed to make a simple meal? Explore the local cafes, of course! I almost became a regular part of the furniture at Cafe New Deli (181 Marrickville Road) last week. First I tried the Lamb Burger (with feta, spanish onion, tomato, lettuce and the...
