Replay Espresso
2A William St
Turramurra, Sydney

Tucked away around the corner from the highway in suburbia Turramurra is the quaint, quirky and somewhat hidden Replay Espresso.

It's cosy but uses its space well and focusses on good coffee, a selection of tasty looking cakes and pastries on display at the counter and a range of hot cooked meals from the menu.

While they do a mean coffee here - and have people queueing for take aways - the green tea is also done well.

It arrived at our table brewing in a beautiful purple cast iron teapot that looked great - and fortunately tasted just as good as well.

Then there's the coffee. It's done well and having tried their brews it's easy to see why its popular.

Hasn't acai become popular lately?

This berry like product from a type of palm tree has a name that half the world struggles to pronounce correctly - including us originally - ah-sigh-he.

Not that this growing popularity is a bad thing as it's good for you and goes well with so many things.

This version was an acai bowl with fig and maple granola in clusters served with sliced banana and shredded coconut.

It was a big, bold, colourful and tasty serving that was extremely filling.

 Apart from the cooked to order meals there is also a good selection of pre-prepared sandwiches, croissants and other bread filled goodies,

On this occasion the choice was a simple ham and cheese toastie.

This was already prepared and just had to be toasted. Nevertheless, it had good fillings and was nice and tasty.

Back to the good-for-you goodies and this selection was gluten free muesli with yoghurt of the day and seasonal fruit. It was another big serving that had plenty of colour and flavour.

It did look spectacular when it arrived at the table with a big dollop of purple yoghurt beside freshly cut pieces of fruit all on top of crispy muesli.This was a feel good dish - you feel good for eating healthy and the tasty is a bonus.
However, if you're looking for that big cooked-to-order breakfast/brunch that you've earned after a week of moderation - um - whoever this may hypothetically apply to - then there are plenty of choices here too.

This was crushed avocado, grilled halloumi, roasted tomato and basil pesto on organic sourdough with a soft boiled egg. The egg was a side and you can order more eggs or other sides. It was a hearty brunch and we do love halloumi any time of the day!
Replay Espresso is secluded but worth finding.
Venture inside - you have to anyway as you need to order at the counter - and check out whats there before you choose.

If you like good coffee they will keep you happy too. 

There are a few outside seats too if you want to people watch - but you can also do this from inside at the counter looking out onto the street.

Gama Korean BBQ Buffet Restaurant
1/1380 Pacific Highway
Turramurra, Sydney

Gama is upstairs facing onto the highway at Turramurra and it's sometimes a bit hard to see it here. Nevertheless it's worth visiting for great Korean BBQ - actually the best we've had in a long while.

Owner Hong has been exporting Aussie meat to Korea for decades and this certainly shows in the quality of the product he has available here - it's excellent.

The $33 all you can eat option here is worth doing. It's a good price for a lot of good food, especially for a family function. We were there for J's birthday.

There's a lot to choose from as well. The meats include pork, beef, chicken, squid and prawns, and many come in several varieties of cuts and marinades. There's something for everyone here. The idea here is to go and choose your meats and then take them back to your table to cook on the BBQ in the middle. The hotplates are decent here too. Some places have very open mesh grills with small pieces of meat that often fall through. Not here. The hotplates only have small slots and the meat is in large pieces although suitably thin to easily cook.

There are also sides to get as well. Some are vegetable options like the spicy but very tasty kimchi whilst others are pre-cooked like the tempura vegetables.

Gama is named after the pots used for Korean cooking - which come in a variety of sizes. Gama Korean BBQ Buffet Restaurant has a similar variety - except it's eating options - and its good. We enjoyed it and would go back again.
