TripAdvisor : Bill & Toni’s, Darling Hurst, AU

This traditional Italian diner serves hearty, authentic homestyle meals. It’s a short walk from the NSW Art Gallery, and attracts all kind of folk- bohemians, school kids, grandfathers and their beloved, friends for a catch up. There seems to be a well established patronage, and for good reason. The food is simple and traditional. Our osso bucco was tender, fall-apart and rich, while our scaloppine pizzaiola was flavour-intense and meaty. 
Don’t expect a luxurious experience. It’s delicious, it’s satisfying, it’s a reasonably-priced hidden gem in Darlinghurst. 

TripAdvisor: Zeno’s Cafe, Sukhumvit, Bangkok

I’ve often wandered past this little cafe, but never gave it a look in. This morning I found solace in its airconditioning and respite in its WIFI. I opted to be healthy and ordered a Mango and Banana smoothie which made me feel virtuous and refreshed. 

I chose the Ham, Tomato and Onion omelette with wholegrain toast and was delightfully surprised. It was flavoursome and filling. Great value for 150THB. What a tasty breakfast, I do recommend. Apparently the coffee is good too.

TripAdvisor review: The Emporium, Parramatta Sydney.

The Emporium is my always place when out for dinner or lunch in Parramatta.  The burger and chips are flavoursome, hearty and incredibly satisfying. They also so gourmet treats as well; the stuffed zucchini flowers and ceviche cups are to die for. The garlic and mushroom risotto is a bit too heavy on the garlic, nevertheless the food is wholesome and fulfilling. 

The aesthic of the restaurant is quaint and rustic, a beautiful venue. Although the menu is a bit pricey, go for the dessert. Guaranteed to be delectable.
