Cha Ball, Burwood


Cha Ball in Burwood serves up fluffy souffle pancakes and refreshing drinks. Cha Ball is located in back alley of Burray Place Arcade. I've seen so many delicious looking photos on instagram so I'm eager to see how they look in person.

VN City, Strathfield



I recently checked out VN City which is a new venue on the main strip of Strathfield.  VN City brings the tasty authentic Vietnamese food I have been craving! While I do enjoy some Modern Vietnamese or Fusion Vietnamese, there are times where I just crave some authentic Vietnamese food.

The Eight, Haymarket


It's been some time since I've been to yum cha but over the years I now know some of the ins and outs of what to do and what not to do. For example, at the Eight in Haymarket, you should get there a bit before 11am on the weekend to ensure you get a table and a head start on the trolleys. After this time, it becomes very challenging to get a table and the food is slower to get around in the trolleys. I can completely relate to some of the reviews about the slower customer service in the peak yum cha hours on the weekend.

Madang Korean BBQ, Sydney


Mr Weekend Food Escapes is a big Korean BBQ fan. While this institution has been around for yonks, it's our first time at Madang Korean BBQ. We are invited here as part of a Hungry Diner event. Tonight, it's a big group event so there's a lot of fun mixed with some chaos.

Hunter and Barrell, Cockle Bay Wharf


Summer is now upon us and here come the social events in December! I've been to Hunter and Barrell a number of times for work events, social events and plenty of foodie events. Hunter and Barrell is located on Cockle Bay Wharf and has a new Elements menu. I'm here on a Thursday night and it's a full house.

La Favola, Newtown


La Favola is located on King St Newtown and its shop front is unassuming. It's mostly by word of mouth where people will know about the quality of food at La Favola. On this particular day, I end up sitting outside to enjoy the people watching and numerous people stop and comment on how great the food looks.

Urban Tadka, Terrey Hills


Urban Tadka is well known in the foodie groups. It's Indian Fine Dining at its finest. I had the pleasure of visiting Urban Tadka last year and head back to check out their new menu recently. Mr Weekend Food Escapes loves Indian cuisine.
