Al-Dhiaffah Al-Iraqi Restaurant, Fairfield

Dinner was delicious in Fairfield at Al-Dhiaffah Al-Iraqi Restaurant, allegedly the only Iraqi restaurant in Sydney. We ordered two dishes only: Beef (or was it lamb) kebab, which was well cooked, thanks to the thickness of it, the centre was still juicy and very tender.  The salad garnish and additional complimentary pickles and salad help cut the protein. Also lots of protein was the lamb stew, with Iraqi bread soaked into it. And of course the Iraqi bread which, as far as my limited knowledge can tell is like Lebanese bread but fluffier. ...

Quick Vietnamese Snack: Trung Nguyen

For a late, light dinner, we usually go to Trung Nguyen in Canley Heights.  The food is fast, cheap and very fresh.  Like all other local Viet restaurants Trung Nguyen is not much to look at but you can’t get better food late at night. In terms of customers, it used to do ok, but the restaurant really picked up customers with their $15 all you can eat hot pot introduced a few years ago.  These days it’s abit more than $15. I’m usually there for rice with pork chop and egg (below), the name, when translated always sounds...
