A couple of friends of mine had suggested that I go to The Orchard Tavern in Chatswood as there were a number of gluten free items on the menu which were labeled so.
One of my friends and I were meeting up for lunch and she was craving The Orchard’s baby octopus salad therefore we decided to go to The Orchard. It was a beautiful day and we therefore sat in the semi outdoor area (still undercover).
When we got there we realised that they had changed the menu therefore they no longer had the baby octopus salad or labeled the gluten free More >
Now that the weather has finally heated up I often find myself craving a Boost Juice. I walk past the one at Chatswood one on a daily basis and have noticed the list of Oriental Delights! flavours. As far as I am aware these are not available at other Boost Juice’s and considering my love of lychee I decided to try one out.
I decided on the Lychee Crush, which consists of freshly squeezed orange, lychee, mango, sorbet & ice. While refreshing I was disappointed to find that the crush had a very strong mango flavour which disguised the lychee More >
I walk past the Makoto sushi train in Chatswood on a regular basis and there is often a queue outside. I had also heard from a work colleague that it was the best sushi train in Chatswood and so I decided to go and try it out.
On this day there wasn’t a queue out the door and I was seated immediately. Somehow they forgot to come over to take my drinks order, however I didn’t want to order a drink so it didn’t bother me.
I started off with some edamame which were perfectly salted and a good sized portion.
I then More >
True to my word in a recent post I visited Mamak in Chatswood for a second and third time to try the other gluten free dishes on the menu.
Once again I was happy that I could walk straight in and not have to queue for a seat, though the place was still buzzing with people.
Having tried the Nasi Lemak last time, I decided that I would try the satay skewers and the Sambal Udang (stir-fried tiger prawns with fiery sambal sauce).
The Sambal Udang is on the lunch specials list for $11.50 (from memory) and comes with rice and some shredded carrot More >
I had always wanted to try Mamak in the city however never made it there and didn’t really fancy having to queue for hours outside. If you haven’t heard of Mamak it is a Malaysian restaurant which is renowned for having amazing food, hence the constant queue to get a seat!
I was therefore very excited to hear that Mamak was to be opening in Chatswood in Eat Street. In their own words, Eat Street is a new addition to the Chatswood eating scene, and is located at 1-5 Railway Street. To date the restaurants that have opened on ‘Eat Street’ are More >
I noticed that they use a number of labels on their food menu including gluten free, dairy free, vegan, vegetarian, good carbs/good sugars, no or low fat etc. There is only one gluten free item on the menu at the Westfield Chatswood cafe (I am not sure if the menu differs at the different locations) but it sounded tasty so I decided to try it one More >
