Food Truck Weekends has to be one of Wetherill Park’s best kept secrets. Every Friday and Saturday night one of the steely warehouses in the industrial corridor of Victoria Street transforms into the food truck pop up – Food Truck Weekends. This more intimate food truck venue has become one of our regular weekend eating spots, it's always fun to visit, for more than just the food!

We first met Tinsae a few years ago at a local multicultural food event. She was serving coffee at her signature Djebana Coffee stall behind an eye catching display of African baskets and ornate coffee pots. Tinsae offered us a cup of her fair trade Ethiopian coffee and some popcorn to nibble on. This kind gesture was our introduction to Ethiopian food culture. We now know that when Tinsea isn't roasting coffee beans, her passion is cooking, especially the food of her original homeland, Ethiopia. Tinsae shares her love of Ethiopian cuisine via her cooking classes at the Auburn Community Centre. However, just recently she decided to branch out and offer food lovers an alternative way to explore the lively flavours of Ethiopia, at a secret Dinner With Tinsae.

Paddy's have joined the Western Sydney food truck frenzy with the recent launch of Paddy's Night Food Markets in Flemington. In its first few weeks the markets  have attracted a large crowd of people keen to rev up their Saturday night with some food truck fare, arcade games and a party atmosphere. We were there too, and were blown away with both the crowd and the food!

Georges Hall isn't one of Western Sydney’s best known food hubs but just off Henry Lawson drive there's an assortment of restaurants nestled beside the Georges River. One these restaurants is Adagio’s Steakhouse, formerly known as Adagio's Cafe. We learnt that Adagio's owner Chris loves nothing more than good food and wine and it was his passion for cooking more meaty dishes which steered him to change the food focus at Adagio's, from cafe to steakhouse. We called in on a cool wintery evening to be warmed up with some good food and wine.

Life has been really busy lately. It’s always busy, but I mean like, next level busy. As much as I usually quite enjoy strolling leisurely around the markets with a coffee in hand, it’s times like these that I am extremely grateful for online grocery shopping. To help regain some of the time that I would normally spend visiting the shops and planning out meals, I decided to give the fresh groceries from Aussie Farmers a go and in particular, their Simple and Fresh Dinnerbox.

Amongst the hustle and bustle of Merrylands Road is a smorgasbord of eateries representing all corners of the globe. Lebanese, Persian, Ethiopian, Thai, Italian and Turkish cuisine can all be found here. On this occasion, we visited Kabul House for a hearty Afghan feed.

Wests Ashfield Leagues Club looks like any typical club from the outside but beyond it’s concrete facade lies a thriving indoor oasis. This oasis is The Garden, a farm to fork venue embellished with sunshine, lacy white trellis and lush green foliage. We spent a relaxed Sunday afternoon in these beautiful surrounds, sipping on Bellini's, nibbling on wood fired pizza and being awed by the ultimate dessert.

Johnny Fong’s Yum Cha restaurant is bringing those in and around Mount Pritchard an indulgent oriental dining experience. Located inside Mounties, the restaurant is modern and sophisticated, yet retains all the charm and hospitality that you’d expect at a traditional Yum Cha eatery. We recently ditched our usual Sunday brunch of bacon and eggs and instead visited Johnny Fong’s for some mid-morning dumplings and jasmine tea.

Hooray, it’s finally here! Neil Perry has brought his renowned Burger Project to Western Sydney. It is now one of nine Burger Project restaurants across NSW & QLD and it is serving up the same delicious burgers and decadent desserts that food-lovers have come to adore.

It’s no secret that working in an office environment isn’t the best for your health. Long hours sitting down at a desk and looking at a computer screen can really take its toll on your body if you don’t take time to stretch and exercise. Then, there’s trying to stay on top of healthy eating. Long, exhausting hours mean that popping over to the food court for lunch and snacking on biscuits can become the easiest option. A lot of workplaces have already introduced standing desks for their employees to help improve their health. So should workplaces have a duty of care when it comes to their employees’ nutrition too?
