Another birthday calls for another reason to eat out. I asked the Boy where he wanted to go and although there were many many options, he went for Sokyo at The Star. We haven’t had the chance to eat at the range of places there except for Momofuku Seiobo.
It’s that time of the year again with December being filled with lots of festivities. Not only is it Christmas and New Years, but for me, it’s my anniversary with the boy and my birthday. I suppose that just means lots of celebrating and eating out? Ha, kind of! December kicked off with a revisit to Ms. G’s for an early birthday celebration and to spend some quality time with the boy, and his sister and brother in law who recently got married. Our guests have been wanting to go to Ms. G’s for a while so we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to take them.
I got my act together and got myself to Circa Espresso. Wait, technically, my first visit was on ANZAC Day but silly me didn’t read Circa Espresso’s tweets advising that they were going to be closed for the day. I rocked up to this empty and locked up garage and was devastated. Anyway, so I finally got the chance to see what all the buzz was about!
Living out west means that brunch places are quite limited. Of course there’s always Cabramatta for your all sorts of Asian cuisines for any time of the day but sometimes, just sometimes, there’s the craving for some toast and eggs. It is really simple and worth it to make at home, but it’s also convenient to head out and order it to have it made for you. It was nice to have stumbled across something so close to home - we found this hidden gem in and amongst the Bonnyrigg Garden Centre. It’s gorgeous that the cafe is located in and has a garden surround – it really makes the atmosphere a pleasure to be in.
Again, it seems like it is another post about the boy’s birthday. Did we really celebrate that much? Oops! Well the reason why we went to La Tratt, Fairfield was because I wanted to take the boy out to eat on his actual birthday. I couldn’t just let him go home and do the norm.
You’d never think that such a fancy schmancy place resided within an RSL. I’ve personally never been to Fairfield RSL until this evening and it’s a lot more grand than any RSL I’ve been to. The entrance to the club is filled with lots of trees and plants, in and amongst this are beautiful garden lights. Not only does it show you the entrance to the club but it creates that calm and serene atmosphere. Though, in my opinion a bit odd as the entrance is also the opening doors to the pokie machines.
I was rather spoilt for my twenty-fourth birthday. As a belated gift, the boyfriend’s sister took me (as well as the boy, and her significant other) out to Restaurant Arras. On my birthday/Christmas card she revealed to me where she wanted to take me. I was super excited. It took a while for us all to find a time where we were all free so we could have a fancy dinner.
