Minh Hai ~ Chinese \ Vietnamese - Sussex Centre Food Court

Why are we so excited that Minh-Hai has opened a stall in Sussex Centre Food Court, when their mothership restaurant, a long running and much loved local institution, is a minute's walk away on George Street?

Weng Xiao Chu ~ Chinese - Dixon House Food Court

The toughest spot to run a stall in Dixon House Food Court is  hidden away up in the far corner. This spot has had the shortest lived but most interesting stalls over the years, and Weng Xiao Chu is the most popular and most accessible in a long time (sadly we never got to the Vietnamese guy here before, it looked good).

Lestari - Indonesian ~ Ultimo

Lestari has moved from its smaller digs to just a few doors along. The new space is food hall cavernous, with large hunger busting plates and bowls of Indo favourites.

Won Ton Noodle House ~ Dixon House Food Court - Chinatown

We've been revisiting the older school Cantonese stalls in Chinatown's food courts, because you just never know how long they will be around. This time we visit Won Ton Noodle House in Dixon House Food Court.

Chinese Dumpling Master ~ Enmore

We've been waiting twenty years for a really, really good Chinese resto in our Enmore\Newtown neighbourhood. Then Chinese Dumpling Master appears on Enmore Road, complete with handmade noodles, plastic grapes on the ceiling and even beers in the fridge. It's a dream come true.

Singapura Eating House ~ Singaporean / Malaysian - Darlinghurst

Last time we dipped into Singapura Eating House it was awash with body builders fueling up on chicken rice. While the newer Darlo location is still just around the corner from the gym, we do our best to avoid the barbells and instead carb load as many noodles as we can and waddle home.

Waroeng NY Soedarto ~ Indonesian - Bankstown

Bankstown is so quiet on a Sunday, it feels like the Zombie apocalypse has been and gone, a few small restaurants have opened their doors to hungry survivors, one such restaurant being Waroeng NY Soedarto.

The Burman Kitchen ~ Burmese, Granville

We've eaten out a lot this year, everywhere from Doonside to Paris, but nowhere excited us quite like The Burman Kitchen in Granville.

Tasty Eating House ~ Chinese, Kingsford

Tasty Eating House in Kingsford dishes out big serves of Chinese braised goodness. Feel virtuous with a veg choice then blow your points counting with sticky sweet n sour pork ribs.

Lazar's Butchery ~ Hungarian - Petersham

One of Sydney's many overlooked food treasures is Lazar's Butchery on Stanmore Road, Petersham- think Hungarian cured meats and old school jollies.

Xin Ding Lan Zhou Beef Noodle Soup ~ Chinese - Dixon House Food Court, Chinatown

We haven't found a good Lan Zhou beef noodle soup in Chinatown since Kung Fu ramen closed (or kicked) it's doors, so we are stoked to see Xin Ding Lan Zhou Beef Noodle Soup appear in Dixon House Food Court.

Face2Face Noodles ~ Chinese - Dixon House Food Court, Chinatown [CLOSED]

Face2Face Noodles in Dixon  House changed hands quite some time ago. We find the food is just as good, though make sure you ask for extra spicy.

[We think this place closed pretty much the day we published this post, the B-Kyu kiss of death...]
