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.
I finally got around to visiting the new kid on the block in Canley Heights. Although to be frank, there have been a couple new shops that have also opened recently (La Grilla, Le Caravelle) and to be opened (ahem, Noggi!). It’s quite amazing to see just how much Canley Heights has transformed over the years since the Holy Basil days.
I love getting home from work when the sun is still out. Summer makes that real easy. It’s a gorgeous evening to be heading out and about for a week night dinner so we head somewhere local to make the most of the day light.
I absolutely love the dining precinct at Westfield Sydney. Given it’s location in the Sydney CBD, I think it was the perfect idea to create a dining experience with actual restaurants and not just with a food court especially beyond the trading hours of a shopping mall. I am slowly trying to make my way through Level 6 and Chat Thai has now been ticked off the list.
Sometimes there are places you drive by all the time that people have mentioned to you before but it’s always gone unnoticed. The boy and I jump into the car and take off to destination unknown. We cruise in the car and quickly decide we’re going to Green Peppercorn but whilst on the way, we drove past Star Lao-Thai Restaurant, and well, we do a U-turn and have a new place for dinner.
