The reason we write this stuff is to travel over the world right here in our own city. We take you now to Fuzhou in China via Dixon Street in Sydney Chinatown for noodles, raw egg drinks and stinky tofu.
Of all things it was African food we looked forward to most on our month long stay in Paris in late 2014, in particular restaurants catering to African migrants, a rarity back home in Australia. We found some great West and North African restos, but not nearly as many as we hoped.
So you're drudging home from work wondering what to have for dinner. Hmmmm, Korean, anyone? "Oh but I want all the banchan too!" I hear you cry. Well, now you can have your chilli radish and your bulgogi for dinner too at Koban in the CBD.
We headed back to Noumea in July for a mid-winter break. We get a little more upmarket than on our last trip, just a little. We bust our bellies eating French and New Caledonian food, with a spot of gee-gee racing in between.
Obunmee in Chinatown is the lunchtime place every city worker hopes is underneath their office block. With Vietnamese fresh salads, rice dishes and noodles or a quick banh mi filled with bbq pork or lemongrass beef, this small resto hits all our right spots.
Toothpaste almost counts as a food, doesn't it? It's probably the one thing besides food or drink we put in our mouth the most. So we decided to try out watermelon frost toothpaste with some surprising results.
