Essence of North India, North Ryde


Matt and I have driven past Essence of North India in North Ryde several times and it's been on the list to try. We arrive on a Sunday evening and seated immediately.There's a big dining room of out dated furniture and a few chairs have tears in them. I'm not too phased as if the food is great then it doesn't matter about the furniture. But first I need to try the food.

The Calyx, Tomato Festival



The Calyx is a little oasis in the middle of Centennial Park. I love the escape it brings from the city. There's an exhibition at the moment called "Plants that Bite" with an array of carnivorous plants. They are beautiful and quite delicate in their own way. Matt and I are also invited to a special event held at the Calyx as part of the Tomato Festival on 17th February 2019.
