A quick post on a surprisingly good feed. Located behind a dodgy looking drive thru bottleshop/bar is Josephine's. Kind of like a cafeteria brassiere, they offer a range of usual pub grub. Plenty of parking at the car park out back.

What was surprising was how tasty this was. Grab a menu, order at the counter and wait for your food to be delivered to your table. Be warned that there can be a bit of wait however especially if its a busy night. I went on a Friday night and it was dead set choccers.

Surf and Turf- $35 - Beautifully char-grilled rump steak cooked medium-rare with hollandaise sauce and 2 fat succulent prawns sitting on top. Chips are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.
Looks small in my photo but was plenty for 1 grown man.

Tucked away on a side street of the CBD is Bona fides cafe. A smallish cafe which is located next to a small alley which doubles as outdoor seating. Due to the low light decor, its apparently been around for ages but I've never noticed it. However on this occasion we did notice it and decided to try it out.

Inside, it was pretty cozy and surprisingly was pretty busy when we got there. Luckily we got a table and placed our orders with the super friendly staff.

Stuffed zucchini flowers - stuffed with ricotta cheese and herbs -$18.90 - For the entree we got the zucchini flowers. Although the portions were a bit small with just 2 flowers, they were super tasty. The flowers had a crunchy battered coating and a tangy aioli dip.

Mixed grill for hungry wolf - char grilled selection of daily meats, chips and salad - $38.90 - I had a hankering for some protein and this menu item hit the spot perfectly. A medium- well done mini steak, marinated chicken tenderloins, kransky sausage and beef sausages. A side of garden salad provided the perfect accompaniment so that I could claim that this was a 'balanced' meal, hehe

Steak of the day, char-grilled grain fed steak, BBQ prawns, mash and mushroom sauce - $30.90 - The other main was the steak of the day. A beautifully cooked sirloin steak with two plump prawns sitting on top.

Not a bad place to chill out with a nice wine and friends.

Yang's Malaysian food truck, Various locations, Sydney

I feel that the food truck revolution has really stepped up a notch after I tried Yang's food truck. As luck would have it, we stumbled across Yang's on Friday night at Pitt street mall in the Sydney CBD.
As you can see below, there was already a bunch of people lining up to try their offerings. We ordered and paid at the counter, grabbed our food, and the headed up to the Westfield foodcourt to grab a table to eat at.

Hainanese chicken wings ~$5 - Four super tasty chicken wings. An awesome twist on the classic Malaysian dish, complete with the chili sauce and slices of cucumber. The coating was light and has just enough flavouring to not really require the chili sauce. Served piping hot, I was pleasantly surprised.

Indo mee goreng - $5.00 - Such a simple dish, but the flavours were just so good. Mee goreng noodles, fried egg and some bok choy. The noodles themselves were to die for.

Soft shell chili crab - $9.00 - The highlight of all the dishes we had. Deep fried and crispy on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside, the mantou bun was delectable. The soft shell crab was lightly battered and deep fried. The chili sauce is just like what you'd get ordering it at the hawker markets. Need more sauce though!

One cup laksa - $7.00  - A simplified laksa that you can eat with just a spoon. The only downside is because it's in a cup, it means the toppings tend to be layered. E.g. noodles at the bottom, chicken at the top etc. The laksa soup itself was nice but super thick.
