A new local community popped up recently, which has their own lovely cafe. The cafe is surrounded by leafy greens, a waterfront and has a verandah on the side if you prefer eating outdoors! We were fortunate to be eating on a clear, blue sunny day, as the wide windows in the cafe allowed a flood of sun to enter. There’s a mixture of table sizes in the cafe, small and large groups can be accommodated.

Two By Four Cafe did not kid, with the bowls, I was struggling with the size of mine. The chicken strips/cuts and vegetables blended great together, it tasted clean and was not heavily sauced. The juices were cold pressed, which was definitely refreshing. The highlight, that I really want to go back for, is their french toast. It was delicious, dangerously soft and not too sweet.

Located along Weston Lane, you’ll find ample parking and it’s less than a 3 minute walk from Rooty Hill station. I believe A-Team’s Kitchen has been at the current location for 2+ years, however have re-branded and re-named the restaurant. I liked the relaxed feel, simple interior reminiscent of food eateries in the Philippines.

Specialising in authentic Filipino meals, desserts and has a coffee-maker for coffee lovers! I would have loved to taste their own version/creation of taho. The mass-produced taho lacked in sweetness and freshness. Though can’t complain, it melds well after a heavy feed. You will find all the classics here, from rice meals, main dishes and BBQ meat sticks! It was glossing in oil and surprisingly it didn’t taste oily at all, it was sweet and tender. Just scroll through the glorious food below, try not to drool.

Averagely priced, it has positioned itself as an ultimate food stop, when you’re craving for that comfort food! I highly recommend their turon, it was amazing! Sweet whilst being soft inside and it’s a decent size. A-Team’s Kitchen is the type of restaurant you’d come back to again and again.

I just love when Western Sydney picks up its food game! When this little gem opened up, offering burgers, chips, beer, tasty beef  and ample seating, I was super excited. The feel of burger point is similar to food establishments you would find in the CBD, however its menu definitely considers the crowd out west.

I did forget what I ordered, so I’ll give you a general idea of what they offer. You will find 4 basic yet scrumptious sides to start your meal, such as their mash and gravy, crispy tenders, shoe string fries and their liquid cheese. I found their gravy ok, it is more on the lighter tasting side with more mash. I do remember the burger I had was definitely satisfying, the bun used was soft which just paired smoothly with the filling. The beef was done perfectly, was juicy and *sigh* just good. Loved the shoe string fries for sure! You can add extras if you need a bit more and they have smaller burgers for the kiddies.

Burgers are priced from $15-$18 and sides from $4-$8. Food came out within 5-8 minutes, mind you the time we went, it was pretty packed. Make sure to bring your ID if you plan to buy a beer or two.
