Everyone has their local spots to eat out at. I’m quite fortunate enough to live very close to a couple of suburbs that has on offer a variety of cuisines. One that has been expanding right before my eyes is Canley Heights. With Holy Basil, Chi Chi, Twelve Spices and Noggi opening up/renovated, the suburb has become more known and talked about. Just as it should.
After a session of training and running a muck on the field, a group of us toss up between El Jannah and La Mono for a fix of charcoal chicken and garlic sauce (best reward ever, right?). Purely because of our location, we head to La Mono for the convenience. Afterall, we were just down the road.
Just a quick post on yet another newbie around Canley Heights – welcome Le Caravelle, an extension of Holy Basil. Residing right next door to Holy Basil, Le Caravelle is more of a wine/tapas bar rather than another Lao/Thai restaurant. Also available are a variety of cakes and treats, as well as frozen yoghurt and gelato.
As mentioned in an earlier post there’s been a few places that have opened up recently at Canley Heights near Holy Basil and well, being a local I can’t help but want to give the new places a go. Whilst waiting for the boy to finish a long day at work, we just wanted a local fix for dinner. We found parking right in front of La Grilla so thought why not since we’ve had this obsession with Korean food lately.
I’m not the biggest fan of frozen yoghurt but I do have a tendency to crave it every now and again. Since it’s popping up everywhere and even so close to home, it’s always a quick fix for some relatively healthy dessert. A couple shops down from Holy Basil and around the corner from Chi Chi, Noggi (Canley Heights) has just opened its doors on March 22, 2013.
Nearly every suburb (or second) has their own little local shopping villages. I have to say these places are generally overlooked because they aren’t the one stop shop place for you to buy all your groceries/everyday needs and usually only have a handful of independent shops. One of my local villages has a tuck shop that has been established since 2010 run by a local family (they went to my high school). It’s definitely a hidden gem that only those in the community know or have heard about it. Good hearty food at decent prices has won the hearts of the locals.
