If you read our last post (and I strongly suggest you do) then you know all about Westfield Hurstville’s fantastic food offerings. So pushing on from that we decided to sit down with each of the fantastic eateries and sample some of their delicious food offerings, so pull up a chair and joint us won’t you?
Our love affair with the Taste of Shanghai group has only grown stronger thanks to the newest Rooftop Dining restaurant, LiLong. Inspired by neighbourhoods and alleyways of Shanghai in the 1930s, Lilong takes you back in time as if to share a meal at a neighbour’s lounge room. This upmarket restaurant serves crowd favourite signature dishes from the Taste of Shanghai chain, as well as those that are only found at the restaurant including their famous dumplings, Xiao Long Bao and Won Ton in chilli oil sauce, to name a few.
They say “Heroes eat like the Greeks”… well dust off your superman cape and head straight to The Hellenic. Casual and carefree, this is a favourite for those wanting a traditional and affordable meal with plenty of flavour. Whilst the menu might be casual it’s definitely not limited – there’s traditional pitas and souvlakis, larger dishes such as marinated prawns with Hellenic’s own mayo, lamb and pork with tzatziki and chips or Sheftalia (Cypriot sausage) with tomato and tzatziki.
Add a side of feta chips, spanakopita (pastries with feta and spinach), salad or dips to complete and if you’ve not yet succumbed to a food coma, grab some delicious Loukoumades (Greek donuts) – take your pick of honey or chocolate.
They also have a delicious cocktail offering so it’s the perfect place to take a load off during a rigorous shopping expedition.
For the finest Belgian chocolate, look no further than Oliver Brown. Think churros and fondue, waffles featuring bananas, nuts, and strawberries, and cakes, sundaes, and an extensive range of hot and cold chocolaty drinks. For the true chocaholic though, you can’t go past Oliver Brown’s signature double delight: the Choc Bomb. A layer of dark chocolate ganache upon milk chocolate ganache, topped with crushed nuts, strawberries, and wafers. Adding Oliver Brown has definitely made Hurstville’s rooftop dining a sweet and deliciously indulgent experience.
The Shed Café
Affordable and quintessentially modern Australian. Try beer battered barramundi with sweet potato fries or ‘The Duck and Hot Chick’ pizza with duck chorizo, chilli chicken and mushrooms. If that’s not for you try the delightfully fresh vegetarian pizza for a guilt free option. For breakfast, why not start your day with The Shed Cafés classic eggs benedict or homemade granola. Pair it with their house blend coffee and you’ll find notes of toffee, praline, spice and caramel emanating from your morning cuppa. Sensational! Also, kid-friendly with a kids menu and play area just outside the café.
Don’t let the name fool you, Sushi Zenko’s extensive menu offers a lot more than just sushi. While their menu might look a bit daunting, don’t fret, here’s a few suggestions. Their hot pots take a few minutes to cook so order them first. We suggest the Tempura Hot Udon Hot Pot. While you wait, munch on some edamame to get your appetite going, and enjoy your sushi while you wait and try their spicy tuna roll or their octopus salad gunkun for something a bit different. Finish up on some classic chicken and avocado rolls, gyoza, chicken karaage, or Tempura Prawns.
Burger Co by Kingston
Burger Co is an American style hamburger restaurant. Their most popular burger is the American Classic (a cheese burger with pickles, mustard and ketchup). Feeling extra hungry? Step up your burger by adding an extra patty and make it a double. Next, decide what to pair your burger with – seasoned fries, poutine, waffle fries, onion rings, sweet potato fries or even buffalo chicken wings. Add an indulgent milkshake, choose from Oreo or Snickers flavoured. If that isn’t enough try the decadent dessert burger with creamy ice cream sandwiched between a cinnamon infused bun and doused in rich chocolate and 100’s n 1000’s.
If your idea of a great dining experience includes tasty Asian dishes, great service and food prepared fresh and fast, then you simply must head over to Chef’s Gallery Hurstville. It’s a gallery after all! So expect to be able to see chefs pull and stretch hand-made noodles and prepare the most mouth-watering dishes. Our favourites are their lightly fried eggplant and spinach tofu, their spinach handmade noodles wok fried with prawns, mussels and calamari, topped with shitake mushrooms and you can’t forget their marbled beef dipped in spicy Sichuan soup. Yum!
