Everyday Eats

There’s a new food guide out. Called Everyday Eats, it features 450 wallet-friendly feeds from across Sydney. Edited by the wonderful Angie Schiavone (former regional editor of the Good Food Guide and eternal titleholder of best person to ask about dumplings in Ashfield), it lets you know where you can get a good hunger-sating return on a $30 bill. My favourite part is Angie’s section on handy categories such as “Biggest Bargain”, “Favourite Big Group Venue” and “Favourite Rainy-Day Dish”; there’s also a nice breakdown of the best breakfasts, late night feeds, banh mi and “lolly bag legends”. Good takeaway and vegetarian options are also noted.

I should admit, the contributors’ list for Everyday Eats features Joanna Savill, Helen Greenwood, Fouad Kassab and, um, me. It was fun to go undercover dining for the book, but I think I will enjoy using it as a where-to-eat aid even more.

Everyday Eats can be found in bookstores and iPhone addicts may be happy to know that an app version is now available.

  1. Congrats on being a contributor! I saw the book the other week and thought “Oh no, not ANOTHER one!”. LOL Surely the SMH could’ve merged this one with the pub one? It’s a good little guide though and contains a lot of gems.

    I went out and bought this guide the day it come out – I love the cheap eats nature of it, and am glad to see some good places around Parramatta where I live.

Hi, I'm Lee Tran Lam. When not blogging with my mouth full, I'm usually writing, presenting Local Fidelity on FBi radio, making zines, producing podcasts or continually breaking promises about how I really am gonna get through my book pile one day.

All the good pictures on this blog are by photography ace (and patient boyfriend), Will Reichelt, (all the dodgy ones can be credited to me)!

The lovely banner is by friend and ultra-talented illustrator Grace Lee.

This site redesign was made possible by the next-level generosity and expertise of Daniel Boud, whose code-tinkering ways are only outranked by his seriously inspired way with a camera.

You can read more about my co-conspirators here.

This is a blog I do for pure fun and zero influence – there's no sponsorship, sneaky advertorial or advertising. I pay for all the food mentioned, 'cos it seems the ethical thing to do.


This is a blog about eating and drinking in Sydney, Australia (with the odd cross-border or off-topic detour). BYO appetite.
