Appethai Restaurant

Disclaimer: All food and beverages were complimentary but opinions are my own.

I’ve been following Sydney Instagrammer KeraBearEats since I’ve moved here and when I saw she posted on her Instastory that anyone interested in a media tasting should DM her, I jumped at the chance to invite myself. It turned out that Appethai Restaurant, located in Darlinghurst near Kings Cross station, was having their grand opening. Appethai is on the higher end of the scale price wise and they offer a la carte menu items as well as set menus (including a vegetarian set menu!). They suggested that we try the $75 set menu. I felt super lucky to have been able to try so many of their dishes! Since it was a spontaneous event I didn’t have my camera with me and it was dark so the photos aren’t very good.

India Bistro-Private Tasting

Disclaimer: I was invited for a private tasting at India Bistro by fellow food blogger and Instagrammer Julie (Yumdeliciousness). All food was complimentary but opinions are my own.

I must preface this post by saying that I actually have very limited experience with Indian food (besides from the food court) and I believe this is the first blog post about Indian food that I’ve ever written! Sorry if I can’t describe everything properly! The last Indian restaurant I tried was Chutney Villa but I never blogged about it.

India Bistro is situated on Davie Street and they offer a lunch buffet 7 days a week ($12.95/person) from 11:30am-3pm, as well as traditional Indian cuisine.

Sydney Eats-Chat Thai

Hello! I recently visited Sydney, Australia so I will be posting some of the delicious food I ate there along with some observations about their city compared to Vancouver. I haven’t really traveled all that much so lots of things are new and exciting to me haha

After walking around Sydney for a bit, I realized that there are so many Thai restaurants! It’s akin to how many sushi restaurants Vancouver has. One of the most popular Thai restaurants is Chat Thai. They have multiple locations, a testament to their popularity. I visited the one across from Capitol Square in what is known as Thai Town. I arrived at 6:30pm after watching Finding Dory and there was a huge line up. You put your name down on a list and take a number and wait to be called.

After waiting 45 mins, we finally got a table! It was a communal table but we didn’t mind.  Continue reading →

Dae-Ji Pork Cutlet House-Kimchi Fried Rice Redefined

Dae-Ji Pork Cutlet House looks a bit run down from the outside but the food is so good! There’s limited seating inside and you can’t have a group with more than 4 people but it’s worth the wait! They are located on Dunsmuir and Seymour with various other locations as well.

First off, I must talk about the Kimchi Fried Rice!!! This was my favourite dish here. Don’t worry I’ll get to the pork cutlet soon! Continue reading →

Jinya Ramen Bar-Kerrisdale

Jinya Ramen Bar opened their new location in Kerrisdale back in May. It’s right next to The Hills and there’s a bus stop right in front of the store so it’s a great location. I went around 3pm and there was still a short wait! I was super hungry during this visit so it could’ve biased me slightly since everything tastes good when you’re hungry! Just letting you guys know!

Sawasdee Thai

It was about time that I got my hands on some Thai food which I clearly don’t eat often enough! We arrived at Sawasdee Thai for lunch and they were understaffed so we had to wait 10 mins for a table even though they had tables but they weren’t cleared and there were only two servers working.

Since we had to wait for a table, we spent our time deciding what to order. All their lunch specials are under $10 and come with a spring roll and a skewer. They are also closed for lunch on Mondays.
