…he’s eaten, blogged, and lived to tell the tale

“Embedded in Cabramatta in Sydney’s culturally diverse south-west, Thang Ngo reports on popular restaurants as well as hole-in-the-wall eateries which still serve exciting authentic food. Vietnamese, Chinese, Lao, Thai, Cambodian, Iraqi, Lebanese, Italian, Chilean, Korean… he’s eaten, blogged, and lived to tell the tale” is an apt description by SBS.

You see, noodlies, Sydney food blog is less about sausage rolls and more about Vietnamese fresh rolls (goi cuon), less triple-cooked pork cheek fine dining and more humble ma & pa run eateries.

Hi, my name is Thang Ngo and I live in south western Sydney, a colourful, exciting, culturally diverse place which never ceases to delight. My blog, noodlies uncovers authentic, culturally diverse food and culture around Sydney.

There are dozens of food blogs that rarely stray from Sydney CBD and inner city. My blog is about the food out west.  I love food that is fast, tasty and affordable; a bowl of steaming pho, flaming Lebanese chicken, freshly baked Afghan bread.

I wanted a blog that’s the answer to “where to eat in Cabramatta?” and “what’s the best restaurant in Cabramatta?”, or where’s the best Lebanese grilled chicken?

Hope you enjoy the food highlighted here.
