If you’re ever in Sydney, check out B-Kyu blog for cheap eats ideas

Posted on

One of my favourite non-Canberra food blogs is the Sydney-based street-food blog B-Kyu.

B-Kyu is “a celebration of the world’s great culinary underbelly by two Sydney-based travel nerds. They¬†dig traditional foods, hole-in-the-wall restaurants, and international supermarkets of mystery.”

They recently came to Canberra to check out our annual world-famous National Multicultural Festival and were appropriately impressed.

They also wisely set aside some time to visit a local favourite – The Burmese Curry Place.

I’ve blogged on it before here and it’s one of those classic authentic ethnic restaurants that is family run and gives you consistent value for money.

It’s great to see it get the national recognition it deserves!

Fire in Sydney Building

Posted on

Very saddened to hear about the fire in the Sydney Building today.

Lots of photos online via @CanberraTimes and #Canberra peeps on Twitter and Facebook. Early reports say the fire started in the Coo Japanese Restaurant in East Row. Looks like much of the building and opposite shops will be shut down while emergency services mop up and deal with the asbestos in this old building.
