Strathfield Good Food Guide : Food Guide 2011
October 2011 | 29 www.ourstrathfield.com.au an importer hidden behind a shopping arcade), Homebush West also has a specialist Asian butcher, Tam Hung Butchery (great for tripe and chicken’s feet), and a brilliant fishmonger, Viet Hoa Seafood, selling live crabs and freshly filleted fish, plus periwinkles, jellyfish and sea cucumber. Many Sydneysiders come to the village purely to go crazy at Best Taste Dim Sim on Henley Road, which sells the best and freshest dim sim in Australia, plus a wide range of sweet and savoury buns. Don’t miss the fresh barbecue pork buns (just $4.80 for six pieces). STRATHFIELD Back in our silver Rio, we cross the railway tracks and head for Strathfield Town Square. While this precinct is dominated by coffee shops and Korean, Japanese and Chinese restaurants, you’ll also find the venerable Rainbow Cakes, which opened its doors in 1928. Pastry chef John Jung specialises in French-style cakes and pastries. Order a slice of his signature vanilla sponge or a dozen neenish tarts to take home. Inside the plaza is Hanaro Mart, a Korean supermarket selling a mind-boggling range of sauces, oils, pastes, seaweeds, rice and Korean snacks, such as pot noodles and prawn crackers. BAKEHOUSE QUARTER Just five minutes away is the buzzing foodie precinct known as the Bakehouse Quarter. Once the epicentre of the giant Arnott’s biscuit empire, the area strives to maintain its foodie heritage, with a range of fresh food outlets, such as Harris Farm Markets, and a selection of cafes, restaurants and specialist outlets, including Cheeky Chocolate and Cookie’s Lounge Bar – a laid back brasserie-style pub that doubles as a wine merchant. Having completed your food safari, reward yourself with brunch at the appropriately named Bar Biscotti on George Street. The traditional cooked breakfast is very popular, or try the vegetarian option with poached eggs, hash browns, roasted tomatoes, sauteed mushrooms and toasted Turkish bread: $14.90. Now that’s enough to gladden the heart of a fearless foodie explorer. Sydney Paddy’s Markets 250-318 Parramatta Road, Flemington.
