It always excites me when we have a free Saturday which means being able to venture to places to tick off our to go list. We call a few friends to eat and chill with us, also showing them what our city has to offer. With my liking of the Drink and Dine Group so far, I thought it would be a great opportunity to try another. We make our way to The Norfolk in Surry Hills, ready for a good pub feed.
It’s been a while since my last food truck hunt. It was announced sometime in December that Street Sliders were going to hit the Parramatta streets so it’s great to see that a suburb out west is adopting the food culture that the Sydney CBD has been so fond of lately. Why should the westies miss out? For January 2013 only, The Food Truck Revolution featuring the below food trucks will park themselves at Church Street Mall, Parramatta and serve up their street food. Schedules are posted up by the participating food trucks so make sure you follow them on facebook for any updates.

Queenies is the first restaurant that I have dined at that belong to the Drink and Dine Group. The company, led by Executive Chef Jamie Thomas, has under their belt The Abercrombie, The Carrington, The Norfolk, Santa Barbra and The Forresters, all of which are on my to go list and have yet to tick any off. Sad face. Queenies is a Jamaican bar and kitchen that is located above The Forresters and takes you to a place where you’d always dream of going, somewhere in the Caribbean.
MoVida has expanded and finally made its way to Sydney and found a home in Surry Hills. You can hear just about every Sydney-sider cheering because now there is no need for a trip to Melbourne to get a dose of Frank Camorra. I’ve not been to any MoVida locations in Melbourne so was very excited to try the one in Sydney, 6 weeks after the opening.
