Strathfield Good Food Guide : Strathfield Good Food Guide 2016
ourstrathfield.com.au 2015/2016 | 7 happy tummies PUBLISHER’S LETTER Tap “Strathfield food” into any search engine and you’ll come up with a culinary United Nations. Strathfield is one of the great multicultural municipalities and no-where is that more obvious than on the menus of our restaurants and cafes. Tripadvisor, that global authority on everything hospitality, has a veritable feast of the best, from Norm’s Milk Bar, Strathfield, to Thousand Spices in Homebush – which inspired one reviewer to remark: “Every time I go there, I leave with a smile on my face and a happy tummy.” Happy tummies are really what eating out is all about. And there are happy tummies aplenty in Strathfield, thanks to an army of master chefs who shun the limelight, but deliver silver service nonetheless. Well-known foodie and host of SBS TV’s Food Safari Maeve O’Meara says: “The wider Strathfield area is one of the most vibrant parts of Sydney... there are several culinary destinations in the Strathfield I would crawl over broken glass for.” Thankfully, we hope this guide means you won’t need to go to such extremes when seeking out your next great meal. When we started the Strathfield Good Food Guide six years ago, it was the first time many of our great cooks had featured anywhere other than on the menu cards of their own establishments. An unassuming lot, they had to be coaxed from their kitchens to pose for photographs and share their recipes. Leafing through that first edition, we see many familiar faces. Kumar Mahadevan, for instance, whose restaurant, Abhi’s, on Concord Road is 25 this year. Today, the list has grown as our enterprising chefs of all nationalities have flourished. And Strathfield’s food culture is not standing still. Sydney Markets, our neighbour, is building a culinary school to improve the cooking of not just the professionals, but all of us. A bevy of celebrity chefs will be on hand when it opens in September, 2016. And Strathfield Council is launching Scores on Doors in November, 2015 to encourage restaurants to display their hygiene rankings. The purpose of this Good Food Guide is to encourage you to support your local food community. Without you, their hungry clients, this vibrant culinary culture would not exist. So choose a great food experience from these pages. Or go online at ourstrathfield.com.au, where you’ll find these and many more eating options in the area. You can be sure of a happy tummy.
