Burwood Eats

Hey guys, I’m sorry for the lack of blog posting recently but between all of the restrictions and places closing down that I wanted to visit, it’s been mum life all the way!

So here I am writing a blog on a couple of places the fam visited in Burwood during a super cold and rainy winter’s day. I decided to only focus on these two as I’m never sure of the future of businesses these days so if I started doing a collection and then a bunch of the places I visited close down (which they have), it wouldn’t really be current by the time I posted the blog.

Our first stop was Twinkle Kids Cafe. This place is super kid friendly as I’m sure you can tell from its name so mums and dads who are on the lookout for somewhere to park themselves for the day while their kiddos burn off some energy, this is the place to go. They have a giant ball pit, lots of pretend play areas, little vehicles and even costumes for the kids.

The items on the menu aren’t too extensive but you do get a $4.00 drink voucher for each paying adult. They also have a display case of desserts like Krispy Kreme donuts and macarons.

I ended up choosing the mixed seafood basket, which had calamari rings, prawn toast, fish, and chips and hubby got the curry chicken rice. The kids picked off our plates as naturally, they were too busy playing to sit down and attempt to eat a meal! Just a note if you order the seafood basket that it only comes with tartar sauce and no lemon.

Mixed seafood basket $16.00

Hubby loved the chicken curry and noted it to be quite flavourful. It was served up in a Peppa Pig shaped bowl which they also sell at their little shop.

Curry chicken rice $12.00

I highly recommend this place as I found it to be quite clean and even though it was busy, they knew how not to overcrowd the venue.

After all of the playing, we were hungry for dessert but the area we were in didn’t really spoil us for choice so we ended up going to Kowloon Cafe. The interior seating reminded me of bus seats and had a cosy feel to it even though it looked miserable outside. Hubby forgot all about dessert when he saw the various menu items containing Spam and eggs so decided to order a dish called Spam and a lot of eggs with rice, a lot of eggs meaning three.

He loved the dish and said it was the perfect size for his appetite. The eggs were also nice and runny, just like he likes them!

Spam With a Lot of Eggs and Rice $13.80

Miss Three shared a dish with Mr One called Spam and double fried egg noodle soup. They loved it as noodles and Spam are two of their fave things to eat and it was the perfect dish for them to share and leave the leftovers for me.

Spam and Double Fried Egg Noodle Soup $11.80

I opted for the HK style toast with condensed milk and peanut butter, which was delish. I have to admit that I drenched the thing in condensed milk – amazing!

HK Style Toast With Condensed Milk and Peanut Butter $5.80
Give me all the condensed milk!

Definitely a place to visit if you are a Spam fan and also to try their toast. Oh, and they’ve got cold Ovaltine on the menu – winner!

Have you got a fave place to eat at in Burwood? I would love to hear – comment or drop me an email to let me know so I can go and try them the next time I’m in the area.
