Dos Senoritas, Gladesville

With the weather gradually getting cooler, I’ve recently been craving some hearty Mexican food. I’m used to only eating this at food courts and not at proper restaurants, so it’s about time I found an actual Mexican restaurant. My friend told me about this place at Gladesville which is allegedly super authentic and one of the best Mexican restaurants in Sydney, so of course I had to check it out!

Contrabando, Wynyard

It’s no secret that I am a big fan of Barrafina Tapas and when I heard that they were opening up a brand new Latin American restaurant next door called Contrabando, I just had to check it out. The team behind Barrafina Tapas has taken over the old Noble House Chinese restaurant site and revamped the basement location into something completely different – starting with the graffiti adorned hidden entrance, signposted only by the upside down Noble House sign on the street.

MoVida Special: MoVida Sydney, Surry Hills and MoVida Bar de Tapas y Vino, Melbourne

I am a massive fan of Spanish cuisine and have been waiting patiently to try the tapas at MoVida for months. I first tried my luck at booking a table at MoVida Sydney back when it first opened, but it seemed that the rest of Sydney had the same idea as me and it was practically booked out for months. Luckily, my patience has paid off – the boy took me to MoVida Sydney for our anniversary, followed by MoVida Bar de Tapas y Vino in Melbourne to see how the two measure up against each other.

Mooberry, Newtown

I know what you’re probably thinking – another froyo place? Sydney is currently chock-a-block full of these frozen yoghurt parlours and it’s getting rather hard to tell them apart…but I can assure you that Mooberry is slightly different from the others because it’s also a dessert bar, serving up warm goodies like Belgian waffles, churros and chocolate souffles to keep the winter chill away. The shop space isn’t that big, but has enough room for a few groups to dine in. Keeping with its Newtown location, it is quirkily decked out with astroturf on the walls, picture frames, mirrors and lots of purple, although surprisingly it doesn’t play on the cow theme too much (apart from its logo).

Wowcow, Parramatta

This restaurant is now closed.

It’s no surprise that we are massive fans of frozen yoghurt. It is a relatively healthy dessert option, delicious with various flavours and toppings and very affordable. Last week saw the opening of four new frozen yoghurt stores; Praus in Eastwood, Yogurberry in Eastwood, a new Moochi branch at Westfield Centrepoint as well Wowcow in Parramatta. Sydney is really going froyo crazy!
