Bonolota ~ Bangladeshi & Indian - Rockdale

We train it out to Rockdale to visit Fuska House, only to find it is no  more, all that is left is a cranky note from the landlord taped to the door. So we sniff around for something similar, ie Bangladeshi and awesome. We find Bonolota in the magic block of shops on the west side of Rockdale Station, where Banoful once lived.

Chulin Chinese Cuisine & Deli - Ultimo / Broadway

The stretch of restos along Broadway in the dip between the hills of UTS and Sydney Uni is a B-Kyu wonderland of top notch little Asian restos. We refer to this area lots so we need a name for shorthand, how about Happy Valley? Let's see if it sticks.

Pinoy Kitchen ~ Filipino & Doonside Festival

We don't usually go in for neighbourhood festivals but somehow the idea of a Doonside festival struck a chord, a fine excuse to sniff around a suburb we've never snifftered before.

Concordia Club ~ German - Tempe

The Concordia Club is dear to our hearts. Firstly for being so un-inner-west and inner-west at the same time. It's housed in a vintage bowlo between a park and the Cooks River - think trees and space with a family/beer garden vibe.

Is Sydney in the midst of Chinese food golden age? Hunt around and you'll find dishes exactly the same as they are in China, our trip to Chongqing late last year really drove this home.
