Bellbird Dining and Bar Casula Powerhouse
Federico is a true gem

Casula Powerhouse – Bellbird Dining and Bar:  Executive Chef Federico is one of the hidden secrets of South West Sydney. It’s a little bit like having Neil Perry hiding at your neighbourhood cafe, or Tetsuya Wakuda moonlighting at the local pub. Federico is a seriously talented chef who turns out elegant, seasonal city-like meals at crazy cheap prices.

Camden Produce MarketsSydneysiders get pretty excited about a grower’s market but here’s the thing – a lot of them are really expensive. Not so with Camden Produce Markets. Buy picked-that-morning veggies including shiitake mushrooms, fruit, herbs, eggs and honey, stock up on sourdough, buy baked goodies like apple pies and Dutch biscuits, and snack on Gozleme washed down with a coffee or freshly squeezed OJ.

Taste Tours Lakemba
Ramadan in Lakemba is one of the best food experiences I have ever had

Taste Tours: Wish you could go on a foodie holiday to Vietnam, Iran or Lebanon? Guess what? You can! Taste Tours will show you the best places to find authentic delicacies in your own backyard. Celebrate Ramadan in Lakemba, Vietnamese in Cabramatta, Persian and Afghani in Merrylands or Chinese in Chinatown.

Epicure, CamdenDo you love cheese? Or fancy a delicious salad or soup? Epicure is one of the best places to grab lunch (Monday – Saturday), or stock up on fancy cheese sold by weight. Located in a historic cottage, Epicure is right next door to the Macaria – Alan Baker Gallery and opposite the Camden Museum so you can easily turn it into a cultural excursion.

Mezzapica Gregory Hills
This is one of Mezzapica’s giant cannoli ‘cakes’. We had one of these for our wedding cake.

Mezzapica, Gledswood Hills: Can’t be assed driving all the way to Leichhardt to load up on ricotta-filled cannoli? Fear not, dear friend. Mezzapica has opened a South Western outpost at Gledswood Hills. Drop in for all your Italian sweet treat needs, as well as cakes to order, coffee and gelato.
