Banana Blossom Asian Salads, Bondi Beach

Nestled off the busy Hall Street at Bondi Beach is the third branch of Banana Blossom, a small chain of Asian salad restaurants which opened a few years ago. It’s a beautiful summer day and I’m planning to visit the beach later, so I’m pretty stoked to be trying a lighter lunch of salads instead of the usual meat-heavy lunches I’d usually opt for.

Madam Char Char, Surry Hills

It’s well known that diners on Crown Street in Surry Hills are spoilt for choice with the many vibrant eateries in the area and one night we were feeling like a quick bite so we popped into Madam Char Char which is near The Winery.
