The spanish fly is a tapas bar that I had been dying to try out for a few months. A few of my friends had raved about how beautiful the food was, so when I tried it out, I saw what all the fuss was about! From the Sangria to the octopus, to the mushroom-filled Tortellini, the food reminded me of the many Tapas bars I visited whilst in Barcelona a year ago. I would definitely recommend trying this place out!
So Mum and I have been dying to visit Manu’s restaurant L’etoile together. It was absolutely amazing! I had the scallop sausage for entree, the confit lamb with smoked mash for my main and a lemon meringue tart for dessert – was so delicious! I Definitely recommend trying this place, I felt like I was back in Paris.
Where in the world can you get two metres of top-quality, only authentic, wood-fried pizza? In Sydney’s Lane Cove. The pizza chef’s cheered as metres upon metres of pizza came out of the mouth of the hot oven and was carried above people’s heads by a squadron of about five men. It was almost a military operation! But what was even more amazing was that the ingredients were so authentic that the broccoli-like vegetable on the pizza, Friarielli, was grown in the volcanic soil of Mount Vesuvius and flown over to Australia to be used as a pizza topping. And why grown in volcanic soil I hear you ask? Well the rich soil gives the Friarielli a creamy, but bitter flavour – something quite unique.
