July, a mid-winter foodie adventure

It was the middle of winter but the foodie scene in Sydney is hotter than July to say the least. New restaurant menus launched along with themed pop ups sprouted around the Sydney food scene. My gratitude to Jen @sweetandyummie on Instagram for extending her invites and tagging me along to some of the most incredible dinners in July. Here are my July top pick restaurants.

Savour the flavours of China with Regional Dinner Series at Holy Duck

There’s only a few days left to try the Sichuan Province inspired menu at Holy Duck in Kensington Street, Chippendale. This is the first menu of a four Chinese regional dinner series which started last month and rolling out over the next few months giving diners the opportunity to take a food journey through the provinces of China. The series offers up a select number of speciality curated dishes that highlight the distinct characteristics of the region’s food. Next month’s menu will feature the refined flavours of Cantonese cuisine.

Boodle Feast in Sydney

A few years ago when Boodle Feast posts exploded on Instagram, I felt I was left out, none of the Sydney Filipino restaurants that I know offered this type of dining. Boodle feast was high on my bucket list to tick off and that desire was finally fulfilled on one of my trips back to Manila a couple of years ago and I managed to blogged it, link here.

Sydney’s Zona Azzurri opens

If you’re looking for a new HOT SPOT for Italian dining, Zona Azzurri is the one. The 140 seater restaurant is the latest addition to the ever changing restaurant scene in the inner-city suburb of Alexandria. This suburb was once the epitome of industrial Sydney, but now it’s switching gears to becoming a mix of high-rise residential areas, upscale offices, and home to trendy restaurants, cafes and shops.

Review: House Bar & Bistrot, Potts Point

Decades ago, the leafy Kellet St in Potts Point was once a busy social and dining scene in the Cross, a mixture of top notch restaurants, trendy cafes, massage parlours, pubs and residential area. Over the years, a number of businesses have closed their doors except for a few iconic venues that have become Sydney institutions. Thankfully new places are popping-up and hopefully they will bring back the once buzzing scene of this lovely street.

Review: The Sydney Chin Chin Restaurant experience!

Adding to the vibrant food scene in Surry Hills is the Chin Chin Restaurant which opened late last year, a sibling to the very popular and successful Chin Chin Melbourne which offers a modern take on South East Asian fare, particularly Thai cuisine. The restaurant occupies the Griffith Teas Building along Commonwealth St, one of Sydney’s landmark buildings.

Yayoi Japanese Teishoku Restaurant opens at Westfield Sydney!

Over the last few years, Japanese food has gradually been permeating the Sydney food scene with more choices of specialised Japanese cuisine. Gone the days when we think of Japanese food as either sushi or tempura.

Leading the pack is the ‘Teishoku’ dining introduced by Plenus Co Ltd, operator of renowned Yayoi, the largest Japanese Teishuko Restaurant chain in Japan, they also have outlets across Asia and the USA.
