The Rice Den – Chatswood, NSW

How much deep fried is too much? I say, never too much. These salt and pepper nasu are simply the best, wedges of eggplants are battered in a spicy five spice mix then deep fried to a golden crunch on the outside and comfortingly soft on the inside, a splash of...

Nectarine Frangipane Tart

Edible flowers are the best. I was craving for stone fruit badly, and don't ask me how, but I managed to find some nectarines and paid high price for it. I know, I know, I am a naughty boy and not adhere to my own rule, as I always encourage people to use seasonal...
