On the last Friday of every month Mezze Cafe in Chatswood put on Mediterranean Yum Cha. It may seem strange, but it is a great way to experience a number of dishes influenced by countries including Greece, Lebanon, Morocco and Turkey.
I received the e-newsletter from Mezze Cafe noting that Yum Cha Friday was fast approaching and I therefore rallied a couple of friends and booked in.
On arrival we were provided with harissa sauce and fresh lebanese bread. Unfortunately they do not have gluten free bread on offer but the harissa came in handy as a dipping sauce for More >
We were lucky enough to be treated to lunch at work the other day at Wi Marn Thai in Chatswood. I had been to Wi Marn Thai a number of times before and therefore knew that there were a number of gluten free options on the menu. They used to have a symbol next to each item on the menu that was, or could be made, gluten free, however they no longer do this as they say that most dishes can be made so.
I absolutely love Wi Marn Thai’s salt and pepper calamari and therefore requested this as one of the More >
My friend introduced me to Mezze Cafe in Chatswood soon after I started working here. We were meeting for lunch and she suggested a few places where we could go. I was immediately drawn to Mezze Cafe as they label all their gluten free items.
I went there so many times in the first couple of months that they remembered what I wanted everytime, The BIG M salad and a chai tea. The BIG M salad consists of sumac chicken, prosciutto, parmesan cheese, boiled egg, mix leaves, fresh tomato, spanish onion, avocado and harissannaise. The salad is a great twist on a More >
I don’t know if you have noticed but there are a number of frozen yoghurt places popping up as an alternative to gelato and ice cream places.
The frozen yoghurt is a far cry from what I used to make with our Easiyo yoghurt maker, instead of being icy it is very creamy and comes in a number of great flavours. My favourite frozen yoghurt place (of the two I have tried so far) is Wowcow in Darlinghurt. They always have a great range of yoghurt flavours including chocolate, mango and coffee and a number of great toppings. Its also a More >
Dietitian Susie Burrell recently released a book ‘Losing the last 5kg‘ which I purchased considering that is exactly (well close to since I want to lose 6) what I have been trying to do for the last 5 months or so. I am only a 1/3 of the way through the book and I already have picked up so many great tips (so much so that I am going to have to read it again and highlight some parts so I can keep coming back to them).
I will complete a review of the book and trial some of the recipes in More >
I used to drive past the 85 Degrees Coffee (85 Degrees Celsius Bakery Cafe) in Kingsford on a regular basis and always thought that the cakes displayed looked amazing and that I must visit sometime. However, I never managed to get there in the time I lived in the Eastern Suburbs. When I started working in Chatswood I realised that there was an 85 Degrees Coffee there too.
I put off visiting the one in Chatswood for awhile thinking that there was a chance I couldn’t eat anything there and also that they wouldn’t understand me asking for gluten More >
