Okami, Silverwater



Hello Sydney! Okami Japanese Restaurant is a popular chain with 24 stores in Melbourne and is now available in Sydney in two locations - Marrickville and newly opened Silverwater. Okami is known for their "all you can eat" menu for $34.80. Silverwater is my closest so I was curious to see what the experience would be like hearing about this from one of my friends.I enter Okami at 12pm on a Sunday with a reservation and can see a small queue forming outside already. This tells me that it is best to book or you will potentially be disappointed.

Mr Wong, Sydney CBD

 

This is a delayed blog post! I was fortunate enough to enjoy a group dinner at Mr Wong. My work colleague often talks about fond he is and is a regular diner at Mr Wong so my expectations have slightly increased. I was looking forward to the upmarket Chinese banquet and the good company on this particular night.

Cooh, Alexandria - Revisit


It's been a few years since I've been to Cooh in Alexandria. I recently visit Cooh again, having fond memories of my last visit in 2016. If you haven't been before, Cooh is best described as having a clean eating mantra and is an upmarket cafe so the price point is higher than your average suburban cafe. Cooh has a huge space being located in a warehouse. It's a lovely venue.

The Fold Cafe, Dulwich Hill


The Fold Cafe is a newly opened cafe in Dulwich Hill. It's best described as Modern Sri Lankan meets cafe fusion which is very unique. As I enter at 10am, there's a steady stream of people who are take-away coffee customers with a cheeky pastry.

New Shanghai, Chatswood


New Shanghai in Chatswood typically has massive queues on the weekend so with the covid-19 situation, I was unsure about how many people would be there on this particular Saturday morning. I arrive early and was able to get a table without any waiting when I arrived at about 11:20 am. The restaurant quickly fills and there's a queue before I blink.

An Viet, Chatswood


So I've been WFH for about 4 months now and while eateries are open in Sydney. I have still been careful with my social distancing and limiting my time out of the house. Mr Weekend Food Escapes and I decide for a Vietnamese lunch in Chatswood at An Viet.

Mamak, Chatswood - A revisit


I've been to Mamak many times over the years. The menu has never changed. I go back to see if the food is as good as I remembered. Check out my last visit in 2017 in this blog post.
