Green Peppercorn Lao & Thai Restaurant, Fairfield

Green Peppercorn is one of those restaurants I have heard so much about and my friends keep raving on about it, so I thought it was about time I checked out what all the fuss was about. The menu is full of traditional Lao/Thai dishes with decor to match. It does remind me slightly of the popular Holy Basil restaurant and I thought they were related, but in fact they are run separately with no relation. Talk about stiff competition!

Iron Chef Chinese Seafood Restaurant, Cabramatta

One of the best things about living in a multicultural society like Australia is that you have easy access to restaurants serving up the cuisines of different countries. A favourite activity of mine is going to yum cha, which is a lunchtime activity at Chinese restaurants where trolleys and trolleys of dim sims are pushed around for you to choose from.

Today some friends of mine take me to Iron Chef at Cabramatta as they tell me it’s the best yum cha in the area. Finding parking can be a bit difficult especially during peak periods (weekends), but conveniently enough a new car park has just opened next door offering limited free parking, hooray!

Pho and Pizza at Cabramatta/Canley Heights

I said I would return to Cabramatta to eat pho and I finally did! Today my friends took me around the Cabramatta area to eat…and thankfully we got to eat pho unlike the last time when I ate everything but pho. They’re a bit torn about where to go as all 6 of them are locals and have their own personal preferences. In the end we decided to visit Pho Phung which is located on the main strip of restaurants, only a short walk from the train station.

A day of eating in Cabramatta and Canley Vale

The outer western suburbs of Sydney such as Cabramatta and Canley Vale are not places I visit too often unfortunately.  Where I went to school, live and work are all nowhere near there so it was always a bit out of the way. However, a few of my friends that live there have always proclaimed that some of the best food can be found there. So they decided to take me there on a food day trip – lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and dessert all in one day!
