Al Mahabba Take-Away ~ Iraqi - Fairfield

Fairfield town centre is deceptively large, with plenty of room for great little restaurants to hide in the side streets and arcades. Sniff around and you might find a little gem like Al Mahabba Takeaway.

Yanping North Road Tourist Night Market ~ Taipei, Taiwan

Taiwan's huge and world famous nightmarkets such as Shilin are a hoot to visit, but there's a lot of average food you need to sift through to find the gems. Smaller nightmarkets like Taipei's Yanping North Road Tourist Market may lack the excitement factor but the food is a definite notch up overall.

Tiger Cave - Thai & Western Food ~ Eating World Food Court, Chinatown

Our mission to eat at every Chinatown foodcourt stall brings us to Tiger Cave. We must admit we were skeptical to begin with. The menu is an oddball mix of Thai and Western dishes. Plus we had a weird illogical resentment to Tiger Cave because it replaced one of our  favourite stalls, Singapore Shiok. Stupid but true.

Daruma Japanese Restaurant ~ Haymarket \ Chinatown

Daruma Japanese Restaurant is as close as we've come to finding the the izakaya/Japanese pub experience in Australia. Come to think of it, it's kind of like one of those 280 yen restaurants crossed with a pub.

Anyhoo, Daruma is down-to-earth, family-run, and one of the most welcoming restaurants we've been to. And it's one of the few Japanese joints in Sydney that Japanese folks actually eat in. If that's not enough recommendation for you, well then you're reading the wrong blog, off to Surry Hills with you.

Street Food tour of Taiwan - Let's Lukang!

We can't be blamed for picking our hotel accommodation in Lukang because they mentioned they had resident golden retrievers, can we?

Street Food is changing its name

After nearly five years of talking about it we've finally decided to change the blog name. We will be (insert drumroll) 'B-Kyu'.

It's Time for Thai ~ Halal Thai - Central\Chinatown Fringe

The top of George Street in Haymarket is becoming a halal hotspot, with excellent North Chinese handmade noodle joints, the recently opened India Gate, as well as It's Time for Thai, the subject of this month's eating obsession.

Darband Persian Restaurant ~ Auburn

Want to try real Persian food and not sure where to start? Darband Persian Restaurant in Auburn is an easy pick. It's not flash but it's fancy for a hole it-in-wall joint. Best of all it's full of Persian folks, which means great food and atmosphere.
