Tan Viet, Eastwood

IMG_0994

Tan Viet has been synonymous with crispy chicken for quite some time, and with good reason! With outlets at Cabramatta and Canley Heights, they provide chicken that is crispy not crispy because of any 'aids' like batters or breadcrumbs, but from it's own...chickenyness.

Naturally, when restaurants in Australia seem to thrive on variety - have you seen Asian restaurants with a menu as long as your arm? - I just had to find out how anyone has managed to specialise in a particular thing to such a degree.

Bread-ucation!!

Bread is one of those things - you're not guaranteed a result even if you are given the recipe. It takes technique, with the right recipe and the right conditions, to achieve the fluffy interior and crusty exterior that is the holy grail of white bread.

I've dabbled with bread on and off over the years, but I knew that I would absolutely get back to figuring this culinary puzzle out if it was the last thing I did!!

Goodness gracious great bowls of noodles! 1.5kg Pho Challenge at Huong Xua
Three restaurants down, and three to go in the epic food crawl with Thang, Isaac, Amy, Christine, Jeroxie and Kate! At this point, we're starting to breathe more heavily, and feeling that fullness that comes with a satisfying meal.

But are we done? NEVER!!!

Canley Heights Food Crawl, Part 1

IMG_0912

I'm always envious when people talk about going on pub crawls, since I'm slightly allergic to alcohol - tasting is okay, drinking is apparently not. I always feel like I keep missing out on all the fun!! So when Thang from Noodlies organised a food crawl in Canley Heights with the Fairfield Council, I jumped at the chance!

6 restaurants in 3 hours, will we SURVIVE THE EATING????!!!! Well Thang, Jeroxie, Amy, Christine, Isaac, Kate and I were going to find out.

What I ate: Crab Salad Roll

IMG_0708

You know that time of the week where you have spare cooked crab meat in your fridge? No? You don't? You ate it all?

Well I usually do too, but I was convinced for long enough that I should try something new with the crab (rather than simply give my usual answer, "EAT IT") that I came up with this speedy and crab salad roll recipe!
