Granata's, Pemulwuy

 I've never been to Granata's before and I've never heard of the suburb Pemulwuy before. Although after posting photos on instagram, several friends reached out saying they have been to Granata's before with recommendation. Granata's is an Italian restaurant full of the family recipes including Grandma's secret recipes. How intriguing!

Radley's, Sydney Metcentre

Radley's has opened up in Sydney Metcentre for over a year now. It's become a bit of a go-to for some of the folks in my office for lunch or after work drinks. It's been some time since I've come back but I head for some lunch with a friend who also works nearby.

New Star Kebab, Auburn

Auburn has significantly changed over the years. My family often come back to New Star Kebab for a meal over the years. New Star Kebab is an institution in Auburn. On the surface, it just looks like any other kebab shop but the locals know it's a tasty venue for a good price.

I have many friends or co-workers who love dumplings. From time to time, I have dumpling dates with my friends. It's just hard to find the time - I head to Din Tai Fung at Gateway for one of my dumpling dates. From the few reviews I've read, this particular Din Tai Fung has lower ratings than other venues.
