Golden Crown Yummy Express, Chinese-Malaysian, Campsie

Campsie's Beamish Street is getting busier and busier over the years. It's much more Chinese than Korean these days, like a battler's Chatswood. The usual chain restaurants haven't taken over Campsie yet, it's a great spot for mum'n'pop Chinese restos, such as today's lucky dip, Golden Crown Yummy Express.

Chongqing Street Noodle ~ Chinese - Chinatown\City

The fire and spice of Chongqing noodle soup is something we get a craving for at least once a month. Fortunately there's a whole bunch of options for it in Sydney these days, and it's usually pretty much as good as you get in Chonqing, China. For this month's craving we hit Chonqing Street Noodle in the city, which is just a schooner throw from the Sir John Young Tavern, for those of us who pubnav.

Pak Afghan ~ Afghani & Pakistani - Auburn

Every weekend we mull over where to go for lunch, at length, it's a serious decision. Afghani food is the first to cross our minds, Kebab Al Hojat in Merrylands to be specific. But we can't spend our whole lives at Kebab Al Hojat, so we stretch our wings and try some Afghani in Auburn, with a touch of Pakistani for good measure.
