Left Of Field

I’m finding plenty to love about my new place in Homebush. We initially decided to move here because it puts me within a 10 minute drive of my hospital, and seeing as I’m expected to be there at 6:45am, scrubbed up and ready for surgery, any time saved in the morning is a godsend. But that’s not only thing to love about the area. I’m now a 10 minute walk away from my favourite Korean restaurant, as well as a bunch of good looking eateries around Homebush station – including a chicken shop that does $2.5 milkshakes! And let’s not even get started on all the food delivery options, because I’m inclined to start crying from sheer joy every time…

Down N’ Out

If you think the name Down N’ Out sounds familiar, you’re not alone. But despite ruffling some feathers with a name that some consider too similar to the famous American burger chain, In-N-Out, Down N’ Out is more than just a clickbait-y name. What started out as a pop-up store became so successful that they now have 3 locations around Sydney, and credentials across pretty much every ‘best-of’ list, a visit to try out their burgers seemed in order.

Eunhasu Korean Restaurant

I have been reading Pachinko recently (fantastic book by the way, would 100% recommend, especially for those looking for excellent novels by women of colour), and the descriptions of Korean food in it got me absolutely craving for the stuff. Eunhasu Korean Restaurant is a small, unassuming little shop located on the quieter side of Strathfield, serving up a range of dishes that would be familiar to many. But despite its utilitarian appearance, the space was clean and comfortable, and the staff couldn’t have been more welcoming if we had been family.

GPO Pizza by Wood

I had dinner today at GPO Pizza by Wood. I came across it last-minute when I had a 4pm craving for pizza, but was unwilling to travel very far for it. I know, I like having my pizza and eating it too. Although the restaurant gave off the impression of a rather classy restaurant, the reality didn’t stretch quite that far. It’s situated in the basement level of the GPO building amongst another cluster of eateries, and together with communal seating, formed a slightly more upscale version of a food court that backed up onto a bar area. Its website proudly boasts a reputation as the best pizza in the Sydney CBD, and whilst I’m not completely sold on that…

Xi’an Eatery

I had first come across Biang Biang noodles at the eponymously named Biang Biang, and have been head-over-heels in love with them from that moment onwards. But whereas Biang Biang is a relative newcomer to the wide noodle scene, Xi’an Eatery has been around for years, serving up bowl after bowl of carb-y goodness to the hungry masses in Burwood. This is a little crazy to think about, but Xi’an Eatery was actually the last restaurant I managed to have a meal at before Covid-19 restrictions shut everything down. And even then, you could already see the pandemic taking its toll. Despite normally having lines out the door, the Friday night crowd was reduced to a mere half dozen. The…

Lonely Mouth

It’s been a long two months, but the blog is back! Socially-distanced, but undeniably back. Oh how I’ve missed going out to eat! Lonely Mouth opened pretty much on the cusp of coronavirus forcing us all into lockdown, so I was afraid that by the time we were allowed to emerge from our homes again, it would have fallen victim to the economical crash like so many other restaurants. Thankfully, that was not the case. They’ve kept things going with a steady stream of takeaway orders, and they’ve reopened for dinner as of last week. You do have to book via email for a strict 45-minute sitting, but once you’re there, you can feel safe in the knowledge that everyone…
