On a recent trip to the Good Food & Wine Show I stumbled upon an array of delicious food: cheese, cured meats, chocolates, and more.
There was one stand though that peaked the interest, and raised eyebrows of those passing by. a little stand with an array of -Bugs. Not for the food fussy or the feint hearted. I was warned of the strong taste, but still went against any logical thinking.
So what does Scorpion taste like? To me it tastes like fish. Strong fish. It isn’t as gross tasting as it is gross psychologically. Would I try it again? Probably not.
Steak on the Rocks opened in Canley Heights, Canley Vale rd a few months ago, and has been gaining a good flow of customers. A good change from the pre-dominant asian restaurants around the area.But does the food fair?
Garlic Pizza. Was very hard. This is what was left of it. Pretty disappointing.
The Steaks are served on sizzling plates. Served very hot as you could imagine. Unfortunately it does cause you to eat very fast if you like your steak medium rare-rare etc.
The chips would be improved immensely if they weren’t so oily.
A little video
Overall I found the experience to be a little under. The staff were friendly, but the communication level was poor. There was only one staff member who understood our request. The restaurant definitely has potential to do great things.
Made some Vegetarian Risotto at home.
We enjoyed some Chinese Takeaway tonight courtesy of Menulog – “No.1 for Online Takeaway”.
The process was pretty simple. Punch your postcode or suburb into the search bar above, and it takes you to another page with a listing of various restaurants within your area.
The restaurant we decided on was The Peacock Palace Chinese Restaurant in Blacktown. We went with Banquet 2: Garlic Chicken, Pork Spare Ribs, and swapped over one of the dishes to a vegetarian stir fried noodle.
The order was estimated to arrive at 7:56.
The order arrived at exactly 7:56 or pretty damn close. Food was still hot, and it came with an extra 1.25L Pepsi, and a bag of Prawn Crackers. Meat dish swapped for Vegetarian dish no problems
How can you have Chinese food and not have Prawn Crackers right?
This was actually my second time visiting Jamie’s Italian in Sydney. However the first time we went, I ended up with a nasty stomach bug just before the night and couldn’t stomach anything.
Skip several months later and here I am.
We started off with the Fried Three Cheese Gnocchi and Fiery Arrabiata sauce. Quite tasty but I wouldn’t be calling it fiery though.
Our second Entree was the Baked Mushroom. Buffalo Mozzarella and mushrooms surrounded by crispy bread. I think I enjoyed the crispy bread more than the cheese and mushrooms.
For mains i had Jamie’s Signature Porchetta. i.e Pork Belly with Watercress.
I tend accompany most of my meals with salad so would have liked a little more Watercress.
I forgot which pasta dish my partner had for her main. Can anyone help here?
Pannacotta & Epic Brownie.
Vegan Dim Sims.
I found these to be Mushy and flavourless unfortunately.
Steamed Vegan Buns.
In contrast to my previous visit, I did not enjoy the food quite as much as the last time. Generally I do like the food at Loving Hut. As always the staff are very friendly.
As always I intend to provide more reviews in future.
Sugar Cane Pork DIY rice paper rolls. Everything comes pre-cut to make exactly 6 rice paper rolls. Very fresh ingredients.
Pho Hien can be found on Canley Vale Rd, Canley Heights and is open super late.
Heaps of people are flocking to Holy Basil within the South Western Sydney Region for some great Thai food. But if you want to avoid the crowds and have something just as good – I would suggest driving about 5 minutes up the road and trying out Twelve Spices Lao & Thai.
Raw Garlic. Chilli. Garlic. Mint. Fish Sauce. Served on fresh cabbage, onions, carrot. Very intense flavours. The prawns aren’t really overpowering at all.
Pad See Ew Vegetarian. Must have at every Thai Restaurant I go to. Pad Thai seems to be the go to dish for most people, but i think Pad See Ew is much better.
Strawberry Shake. Quite Tasty.
Part 2 review coming soon.
