New Shanghai – Ashfield

New Shanghai – Ashfield

A little while back, Stud and I were invited to try the new Dumplings and Wine menu at New Shanghai in Chatswood Chase. We came away bursting at the seams and one of us may have been a little tipsy. I’m saying no more! So when I was asked to attend a get together at New Shanghai’s original, but newly refurbished restaurant in Ashfield I was well up for it, and ate extremely low calorie food during the day to prep myself. Let. Me. Tell. You! I’m glad I did! We’re brought out a selection of traditional cold dishes to try. Drunken chicken (chicken soaked in Chinese wine with herb & spice), New Shanghai salted duck, Shanghai style deep-fried fish soaked in herb, spice & dark soy sauce, Shredded spicy chicken, Garlic cucumber, Sliced jellyfish mixed with cucumber, Shredded kelp mixed with spice and vinegar dressing, Pork terrine, Pigs...

New Shanghai – Chatswood

With the weather getting a little colder, there’s nothing I love more than a good comforting meal. A beautiful warming soup, a little pork belly, some kick-butt dumplings – ok, my waistline isn’t too much of a fan of the colder months, but I’m running this show, mwahahaha! So when Stud and I were invited to try New Shanghai’s new wine and dumpling dinner, I was well up for it. Soup dumplings AND matched wine? Ummmm YES….please! I had wanted to try New Shanghai for quite some time now. I feel like ever since Stud and I migrated from the North Side, it’s just got bigger and better. I’m not bitter, I’m just saying. We arrived just after 6pm and as I walked down Victoria Street towards the Chase (Chatswood Chase that is), I was pretty damn excited. I entered via the Victoria street entrance which took me right...

Heritage Court – Hurstville

With more than a couple food deal vouchers under my belt, it was time to start making reservations. As instructed by Stud, I booked in order of purchasing so our first stop was Heritage Court Restaurant in Hurstville. Purchased partly because it was so close to us that it was stupid not to buy it and partly because it was five courses for two people for only $59 including a glass of wine. Without checking the address, I had in my mind where I thought the restaurant was and once in the car and on our way, I realised I was wrong. Really wrong! Heritage Court is a duplex terrace house on a Hurstville side street. They’ve knocked out the “duplex” wall to make this one large restaurant at the front and presumably the kitchen/bathrooms/etc out the back. When you walk in you definitely feel like you are in...

Hun Kee Chinese and Thai Restaurant – Riverwood

Hun Kee Chinese and Thai Restaurant – Riverwood

In an effort to try all the restaurants in our area, Stud and I headed out for a couple of bottles of wine and a stroll around the neighbourhood looking for somewhere to eat. We walked past a couple of places that we had been to already but wanted to try something different so ended up at Hun Kee. The décor was what you would expect from an old school Chinese restaurant in the burbs. A little run down but not messy at all. Just not up to date or “trendy”. In my opinion, this usually means good food as the trendier ones have a tendency to let that get in the way. We sat at our table and the waitress brought us over the menus. One laminated version of a takeaway menu and the other, a big folder filled with food porn! Stud and I were immediately excited...

Sydney Night Noodle Markets

Sydney Night Noodle Markets

People come from far and wide to visit the night noodle markets in October and I was lucky enough to just scrape through on the last night. Naturally because it was the last night, it was pretty packed. We had thought ourselves lucky when we arrived and it wasn’t too bad but we still couldn’t find a seat. Luckily we hijacked a couple of chairs from a friend of a friend and sat there until the rest of our party arrived and then migrated to a nice grassy corner with a great view of the dragon show. When you go to the noodle markets you really need to devise a plan of attack before you even think of getting up to move. As it was still reasonable early (5:20ish), we got our priorities in check and headed straight for the bar, then a little look around for some appetiser...
