1/501 King St
We were cruising King St in Newtown looking for a parking spot first, then we were going to just drop in to whatever was nearby for a quick bite before going to see a band.
We eventually found one down the far end and when we got out and wandered a short distance we spotted African Feeling.
We've eaten African food a few times before and always enjoyed it so we made the impromptu decision to give it a go.
We also fortunately scored a table straight away which was a bonus.
We would have liked to try the African Donuts for dessert but sadly we didn't have the space. They looked good in the advert on the table. African Feeling is a pleasant place with a good variety of African food.

We felt like having a spicy lunch and being a public holiday, where a lot of restaurants are closed, we decided to head to the Macquarie Centre.
The Foodie House caught our eye and after reading their menu's thought that this would be a good place to grab a nice lunch - with spice. We both chose dishes that were on the "lunchtime" special.
It did not take long to arrive and when it did it smelt delish. Mlady had the beauty of the laksa being a lovely "soup" with all it's goodies.
This consisted of the noodles, baby corn, mushrooms, pieces of carrot, sliced bits of onion, pieces of shallot and of course wonderful soft tofu.
Mlady of course used the chopsticks to eat the tasty spicy vegetables and noodles and the spoon to enjoy the wonderful "soup". This was a really satisfying dish that tasted delicious and ticked all the boxes.
Sir ordered the Crispy roasted pork served with rice. There was a good pile of pork on the plate. It was nice and tender with a mildly flavoured dipping sauce and a small garnish of salad.
It was accompanied with a good sized serving of rice on the plate as well. The combination was tasty and with its side of soup it was a very substantial meal.
The Foodie House is a quaint place with a street stall appearance to it even though it's inside Macquarie Centre. The food is freshly made, fast and tasty.

Customs House Bar is transforming into one of the city's newest dining destinations, both inside and outside what is one of Sydney's oldest pubs. The outside seating, their main area, has rustic furniture, pretty hanging gardens, hedges, white picket fences and communal tables. This is absolutely ideal for people to enjoy a drink and a quick bite or a full meal. Customs House Bar is a casual fun place. They have nice quick meals - to cater for the lunch-time crowds and the food is kept at affordable prices. It's a beer pub and they have 20 "on tap" beers - that cater for every possible taste! When we arrived we could feel the "buzz" and the place was full with people eating, drinking and generally relaxing. There was a mixture of people including groups and couples that were settling in for a good night of food and drinks.
Hemant Dadlani - Executive Chef has put together an innovative, seasonal and very tasty menu. His inspiration has come from tropical places which are versatile - and it is evident in the menu.
Mlady ordered the Cajun chicken breast burger, smashed avocado, perri mayonnaise on a Brioche bun. Chicken breast at times can be a bit dry - but this was certainly not the case here! It really was a very tasty burger with crisp lettuce and tomato. It arrived with oh so good chips in a cute bucket with the chips wrapped in "newspaper". It also included was a little bucket of tomato sauce. Dipping the yummy chips in the tomato sauce - nice! Mlady enjoyed this dish immensely.
The asparagus was served as a side in a cute retro white enamel bowl. It was pretty enough to eat on its own!
The chicken was tender and juicy and the crispy skin made this a very enjoyable meal. It was a decent sized serving too - plenty there for a sharing plate or a big meal for one.
This was a colourful dish with the citrus salsa adding splashes of pastel on top of the chicken and even more colour coming from the floral adorned asparagus, all the flavours and textures - these all complemented one another.
The next selection was a sample of darker beers. These were Millers, Ruby Tuesday and White rabbit and again these were well paired with our meals. Mlady favours the darker beers whilst Sir drinks the lot!
Special thanks to Hemant Dadlani - Executive chef for taking the time out of his busy schedule to sit and chat with us and share his wonderfully flavoured and innovative menu.
Sir and Mlady dined as guests of Customs House Bar. Big thanks to Gabriella Lizzo for this invitation.
Level 4, Westpoint Shopping Centre
Mlady and The Baroness felt like having some noodles for dinner so we decided to try Noodle & Dumpling on Westpoint.
Mlady had often passed this place whilst shopping and liked what she'd seen. She decided it was the time to try it out.
Situated on level 4 - same level as the cinemas. You can sit either inside or outside and there are those lovely heaters outside to keep you nice and warm.
The choices here are varied. You can create your own or just choose from the diverse menu.
Step 1: Choose Noodle style,
Step 2: Choose Noodle soup.
Step 3 : Choose Ingredients.
The decision to choose was difficult - What to have?
They have great choices and also being able to create your own combination is a good idea.
Mlady decided this time to not to create her own but chose from the menu.
She saw the Wonton Noodle soup and this really appealed to my taste buds. This really was a fresh and flavoursome dish. She really enjoyed the taste of the Wontons which had a meat filling. She was not entirely sure what the exact flavour was but they were really good. There were plenty of noodles too! She also loved the greens that surrounded the Wontons - she does love her greens. The serving was generous too.
The Baroness chose Pad Thai - chicken and prawn. This really was an exceptional Pad Thai and her empty plate was testament to this! She is quite partial to prawns and this dish had them aplenty. Again it had great flavours and was a generous serving.
The Baroness also ordered a serve of Vegetarian Dumplings (6). These were filled and bulging with vegetables. They looked so good that Mlady just had to try one. These really were very yummy.
We noticed too that tables were filling up. It was obvious that this place was popular. We can see why. The food here is certainly fresh, mouth watering and generously served. We will definitely be back.
