Flower Child – Chatswood Westfield

NeateatSydney Reckons: You can’t pass up the Flower Child French Toast! Having frequented their sister cafe at Warringah Mall, I was excited to take my friend to  try out Flower Child at Chatswood Westfield. We arrived early knowing that there would be queue, and as expected there was! Luckily as it was about 11am, so we…

Concrete Jungle Cafe – Chippendale

NeateatSydney reckons: You won’t go wrong with the Blue Majik Smootie Bowl! Pretty much every morning like clockwork, I wake up and check my Instagram feed before actually getting out of bed – and it was as though overnight all the foodies that I follow were sipping lattes and eating toast at Concrete Jungle! I saw…

Chiswick – Woollahra

Neateatsydney Reckons: The Moran Family Lamb Shoulder is a must try! I had been wanting to frequent Chiswick for some time now having heard that it was co-owed by celebrity chef, Matt Moran. Just a few months prior, I had frequented Aria Brisbane (another one of Matt Moran’s venues). There, the menu was delicate, contemporary…

Plage Restaurant – Cremorne

Neateatsydney reckons: The Wagyu Beef carpaccio with dashi broth is a must! It was date night (date night!) and what better choice than a French – Japanese fusion restaurant – the combinations of my favourite Japanese cuisine, combined with the romance of French flavours, or would it be the other way around? We would soon…

Acai Obsessed @Bare Naked Bowls

Neateatsydney reckons: My go-to is their Power Bowl, plus its Gluten Free! The majority of people I know have a trigger – a happy trigger. Usually its the mention of a favourite subject like fashion, sports or travel – when prompted, their eyes light up and they get a bit giddy. Most foodies I know…

Taste of Shanghai – Eastwood

Neateatsydney reckons: The Pan Fried Pork Buns really do take me back to Shanghai!!!!

It was one of the greatest eye-opening trips I have been on and we really did try to fit as much…

PappaRich – Chatswood

Neateatsydney reckons: The crispy chicken is a must try!! Pappa Rich has nailed it, offering Sydney-siders quality authentic Malaysian cuisine. The array of choice on the menu is unbelievable with ALL your favourites, from your classic Roti Canai to their Fish Head Noodle Soup! It definitely is now one of my favourite go-to places whenever…

Bondi Pizza – Macquarie Centre

Neateatsydney reckons: Try their Peking Deluxe if you love duck as much as I do!! I enjoy coming to Bondi Pizza whenever there is a large group of us as they cater for lots of people so well. It’s not your conventional pizza joint, and takes a borrowing from the American-esk rib and pancake house…

Bentely – Good Food Month

Coming along to Bentely as a part of Sydney Morning Herald’s, ‘Let’s Do Lunch’ was something that I had been looking forward to for some time, after all my reservation had been made may weeks in advance, pretty much as soon SMH had announced their inaugural line up of top end restaurants around Sydney that were putting…

Via Napoli Pizzeria

Neateatsydney reckons: Try their Nutella pizza if you’re feeling indulgent!! My friends partner is Italian but both travel and work overseas, so whenever they are in town, they will tour Sydney in search of all the wonderful Italian restaurants that we have to offer. On this night, we decided to re-visit Via Napoli Pizzeria, which…

Tobikiri Japanese Kitchen

Neateatsydney reckons:  Don’t go passed the Mochi Dengaku for something a little sweet and salty! We stumbled upon this deliciously cute and rustic Japanese restaurant one rainy winters night. It was my mum’s birthday and as is tradition, we went out to celebrate over a Japanese meal. This year it was just to two of us,…

Chur Burger

Neateatsydney reckons: Remember to order a side a Sweet Potato Chips! Burgers??? For Churrrrr…. One of the longest standing and hippest burger joints in Sydney that will leave you satisfied without breaking the bank. The decor is funky with graffiti style murals on the walls and with their food being served on tin plates and…
