Bún Thang – Vietnamese Noodle Soup with Chicken, Pork, & Egg

by Huy @ HungryHuy.com

What Is Bún Thang? My knowledge of the Vietnamese language is about on par with my grandma’s English, so this gives us lots of opportunities to learn from each other. She watches Viet news and Korean dramas which have a surprising amount of English in them. The latest term I explained to her was “poker face” hah! […]

Pork Belly Recipe for Bánh Mì (Vietnamese Sandwiches)

by Huy @ HungryHuy.com

At Vietnamese sandwich shops, you’ll find a dizzying number of meat options like grilled chicken, grilled beef, sardines, and even some Chinese influenced options like xíu mại. However, with Vietnamese sandwiches, pork seems to be king–you’ll always see pork options like chả lụa (meat loaf), thịt nướng (grilled pork), nem nướng (ground & grilled pork), bì […]

Bánh Xèo – Savory Vietnamese Crêpes

by Huy @ HungryHuy.com

Bánh xèo seems to be designed to be eaten as a family. The batter, filling ingredients, and veggies aren’t complicated to prepare, but they don’t make sense to be bought or made to be eaten by yourself. You don’t just buy 1/4 pound of pork, 8 shrimps, or buy 1/4 head of lettuce. You kind […]

Hybridized Vietnamese dough “kebab” – bánh mì tươi

A Latin Festival Is Coming To Sydney

A Latin Festival Is Coming To Sydney

by Ange Law @ The A List | The Urban List

There is literally nothing we love more that day drinking, street eats, and a side of culture. So when we heard the Inner West Fiesta – A Latin Cultural Festival was coming back to Sydney, we were well prepped for a day in the sun, with mates and aaaaaaall of the South American, Brazilian food and even some Central American food thrown in for added deliciousness. 

Expect everything from dance and music performances on the stage, to markets and cultural demonstrations. We’re talking tacos, empanadas, arepas, burritos and more. Our recommendation is that you head down, grab yourself some seriously delicious (and authentic AF) snacks, settle in on the grass to watch the show, and then (obviously) make your way over to the market stalls. Sounds fab, no?

For all the deets and to book, head here

The Details 

What: Inner West Fiesta – A Latin Cultural Festival When: 28 January Where: Sydney Portugal Community Club, 100 Marrickville Road, Marrickville Cost: $11.20 (children $6.20)

Here are even more things to do this month.

10 Places You Wish You Were Instead Of At Your Desk RN

10 Places You Wish You Were Instead Of At Your Desk RN

by Shannon Coward @ The A List | The Urban List

Welcome to 2018. We bet you're wondering why the hell you're sitting at your desk right now, as your other (some might say, smarter) colleagues took an extra week to lounge around eating the last of the leftovers, or to swan off overseas to top up their tan. We feel you. The real world has rolled back around—and it feels remarkably like work in 2017...

Instead of doing actual work, spend your precious brain space fantasising of the 10 places you wish you were instead at your desk RN. 

#1. Whitehaven Beach

Australia

If there’s anything that screams perfect daydream material, it’s sitting on 98% silica sand while the crystal clear ocean laps at your feet. The incredible Whitehaven Beach, located a short boat ride from Airlie Beach in the Whitsundays Queensland, has all your tropical island dreams covered and then some with its mind-boggling beauty and location on the edge of the Great  Barrier Reef. There’s a reason this stunning natural wonder is plastered across every Australian tourism campaign and it really needs to be seen to be believed. Plus, you could totally combine your trip to Whitehaven with a stay at luxe accommodation on nearby Hamilton Island for the ultimate island escape. Throw in a palm leaf and we’re sold.

#2. Plitvice Lakes National Park

Croatia

A hidden gem more than worthy of a shout out, Croatia’s Plitvice Lake National Park is a nature-lover’s dream come true. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Plitvice Lakes National Park marks the point where 16 crystal-esque lakes flow into each through a series of waterfalls and cascades. An 18km wooden footbridge meanders through the water and butterflies do their thing all over the heavily-forested area. The water is so turquoise you’ll find yourself questioning whether they secretly dyed it and if you visit in winter, you might just find an ice-covered wonderland that would make for one sick ‘gram picture. Plitvice Lakes might also be as close as you’ll get to steeping onto the set of a real life Disney movie. Talk about magical AF.

#3. Gion

Japan

Located in Kyoto, Japan’s cultural hub and former capital, Gion is a must-see on any Japanese adventure. Referred to informally as the geisha district, Gion is a gorgeous slice of the Japan of ages past, nestled smack bang in the middle of a bustling, thriving city that effortlessly blends modern and traditional. Think wooden buildings, winding alleyways, traditional gift shops and the chance to spot a geisha or maiko (a geisha’s apprentice) making their way between appointments at the myriad teahouses dotting the district. Gion is also home to a number of sights, including the famous Kiyomizu-dera temple which offers to-die-for views over Kyoto, if you can’t get your fill just by wandering the stone pathways. BRB, looking up when the next flight leaves for Japan.

#4. The Alhambra

Spain

Topping many a “things you have to see before you die” list, the Alhambra is, well, actually something you have to see before you die. Let’s just say, it makes sitting at your desk sound pretty dang boring. Drawing heavily on its Arabic ancestry, the Alhambra is a fortress complex located in Granada that manages to blend historical significance with stunning architectural brilliance in all the right ways. To start with, the Alhambra offers killer views over the city of Granada and the surrounding meadows. It was built primarily in the 13th century when the first king of the Nasrid dynasty decided to make the fortress the royal residence. It’s from this period that much of the architectural elements –including wooden filigree archways and that iconic central fountain – that make the Alhambra so gorgeous are from. Oh and did we mention that the aim of the architects designing the Alhambra was to cover every single space with decoration, no matter how big or small said space was. Leave work early, head to the airport, fly to Spain, go to the Alhambra, thank us later.

#5. Edinburgh

Scotland

Ah Scotland, we might just have a tiny crush on you after binge-watching Outlander on Netflix. Which is why we just had to put Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city and voted the most walkable city in the U.K. (take that, London), on this list. Edinburgh is home to many a cultural monument, including the perfectly medieval Edinburgh Castle and the Museum of Edinburgh - which just so happens to be located inside a 16th-century house. If you’re more the type to emerge after the sun has gone down, spend your time exploring the haunted alleyways of Mary King’s Close or hit up the local pub for the best whisky you’ll ever taste. Just don’t forget to head out of town and climb Arthur’s Seat, an extinct volcano that also offers gorgeous views over the city below. Ugh, why can’t we be working in Scotland right now.

#6. Skaftafell National Park

Iceland

And here we were thinking that the rock formations of Ireland’s Giants Causeway were impressive when Skaftafell National Park came onto the scene and blew us all away. Located in gorgeous Iceland, Skaftafell is the epicentre of the largest national park in Europe, Vatnajokull National Park, and lies on the southern edge of the breathtaking Vatnajokull Glacier. The park is a land of contrasts, promising you the chance to see everything from active volcanoes to glaciers to flat, sandy plains to glacier rivers – all in the same place. Skaftafell is also home to the Kristinartindar Peaks, a dramatic rock formation from which a waterfall plummets one metre into the lush park below. And that’s all before we get to the variety of hiking trails that wind through the 5000 square kilometres of natural beauty that the park claims as its own. Psh, who needs a job anyway, if you need us we’ll be adventuring in Iceland.

#7. Old Havana

Cuba

Okay, okay, so the pinnacle of chilly northern wandering isn’t really your thing. What about the colourful, bustling, tropical flair of Old Havana, in Cuba? Old Havana is the second most populated borough of modern Havana and is contained within the original Havana city walls. It is also the best placed to be completely immersed in the Havana of long ago. This is a Havana where rumba music floats through cobbled streets, where narrow lanes meander past Cuban-Baroque-meets-Art-Nouveau buildings and where the locals sip coffee and chat like they’ve been doing for many a-year. In other words, it’s pretty wanderlust inducing. Stay in a hotel that once played host to Winston Churchill, explore the brightly hued Plaza Vieja or spend the day exploring Havana’s revolutionary past at Museo de la Ciudad. Whatever you choose, it’s got to be better than staring gloomily out the window at all the not-Old Havana you’re surrounded by. Yes, you can thank us later.

#8. Banff National Park

Canada

Located in the iconic Canadian Rockies, Banff National Park is Canada’s first national park and is home to some breathtaking examples of that alpine beauty we all know and love about Canada. Lake Louise, a turquoise pool of pure postcard perfect beauty, serves as the park’s main jumping off point before you move on to the too-pretty-to-be-real Sunshine Meadows (the name, guys, the name) or the jagged peaks of the Icefields Parkway. To help with painting the picture of how freaking incredible Banff National Park is, imagine that scene in The Sound of Music when Maria is singing her heart out to the rolling green hills around her. Banff makes that scenery look like your attempt at Pictionary after a few too many drinks. So, what are you waiting for?

#9. Chiang Mai

Thailand

Chiang Mai is a beacon when it comes to sought after travel destinations at the moment but the temple city of Thailand is attracting so much buzz for a very good reason. Serving as the hub of Northern Thailand, Chiang Mai is the perfect place to kick back and get some much needed R&R while remaining in close proximity to activities galore. Pick from one of the many temples peeking out from behind every corner, thanks to the city’s position as the former seat of the Lanna kingdom, or spend your time wandering the backstreets and sampling the many flavours of Thai cuisine. Did someone say authentic pad Thai and grilled pork in banana leaf? Drool. Uh yeah, you can totally get away with chucking a sickie for a whole week (or four). We’ll see you at the airport.

#10. Ggantija

Malta

An underappreciated hidden gem good for more than just filming locations for a bunch of hit TV shows (Game of Thrones, anyone?), Malta is well-worth an addition to any perpetual wander-lusting daydreams. Malta, an island located between Malta and the North African coast, is home to a number of historic sites that remain as evidence of its former rulers, including the Romans, Moors, French and British. The most famous of these has to be Ggantija, a temple complex on the Mediterranean Island of Gozo that is older than the pyramids of Egypt. They are also the world’s second oldest existing manmade religious structures, losing out only to Gobekli Tepe in Turkey. You can actually wander through the ruins of the complex, marvelling at the ingenuity of construction from before society was really a thing. Getting to explore the almost-oldest structure in the world AND having the chance to live your best life on a Mediterranean island? Sign us the heck up!

13 Awesome Things To Do In Sydney This Weekend

by Hannah Caldwell @ The A List | The Urban List

Yep, it definitely feels like summer in Sydney right now, and that means only one thing—celebrating with good food and good vibes in the sunshine. That last one is mandatory. From open-air markets to Oktoberfest street parties, film festivals and an RnB sesh for good measure, there are plenty of fab activities to do in Sydney this weekend. 

Diaries at the ready—let’s do this.

All Weekend

Canadian Club Racquet Club

Guys, the Canadian Club Racquet Club is back for another year of being the perfect chaser to the holidays. What does that mean for you? You can sip on Canadian Club, dry and fresh lime as you kick back and soak up those last days of summer. Just gather the squad and head down to Bucket List or Watson’s Bay Boutique Hotel until January 28 to join in on the fun.  

When: Until 28 January Where: Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel

Mexican Fiesta Pop-Up

Summer is all about settling in by the water and taking up the challenge of eating your weight in food. That’s why we’re really digging the Mexican Fiesta Pop-Up at Portside complete with casual flair did we mention delicious food? Yep, that’s right, get your fix of small bites like quesadillas oozing with mushroom, serrano chilli and pepita aioli and follow it up with a margarita deconstructed cheesecake. Margarita. Cheesecake. Cheers with a glass (ahem, jug) of sangria then sit back and enjoy that epic view. More details here.

When: Throughout January Where: Portside Sydney, Opera House

FLICKERFEST SHORT FILM FESTIVAL 

Flickerfest has been around for yonks, we tell you, and they’re back in 2018 with some mighty fine international and national short films. If you fancy yourself a bit of a film fanatic, an unlimited season pass is the way to go, but for the rest of us, a ticket will only set you back $20 (a bargain if ever we saw one). Head here for more info and to get booking.

When: Friday 12 January to Sunday 21 January Where: Bondi Beach, Bondi Cost: Tickets from $18 per person

LEURA SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL

Calm down everyone, Leura is legit only a 1.5-hour drive from Sydney city, acting as the perfect lil’ getaway or road trip you’ve been hoping for this January. Fare thee well to the bustle of Sydney city and catch Shakespeare’s Measure For Measure and Goldoni’s The Servant of Two Masters at the outdoor festival this January.

When: Saturday 13 January to Sunday 28 January Where: Leura Everglades Garden, Leura Cost: Adults $38 and concessions $32

PARKES ELVIS FESTIVAL

Parkes isn’t close but it isn’t too far either, think 365km from Sydney, rural AF and bang on in the centre of NSW. Thank goodness road trips exist because the Parkes Elvis Festival will have you packing your car with pillows and snacks and making the trip out to Parkes, all for the love of Elvis. With five whole days of entertainment, food, live music and drinks, the Elvis Festival is bound to be a goodie, so get your tix here.

Aperitivo Hour

This time, it’s a collaboration between in-house legends Butcher and the Farmer, and Dust (just quietly one of Sydney’s best bakeries) and it’ll be a big fat flavour bomb for those taste buds of yours. What goes better with honest farm-to-table dishes than freshly baked bread? Nothing. Book here

Where: The Tramsheds When: Friday 12 January, from5pm

Spear The Beer

Fridays just got a lot more interesting thanks to The Oaks Hotel and it’s all because they’re bringing back the ancient tradition of spearing the Beer. Basically, this is where they take to a beer barrel with a stone hammer and spike to break the seal for some satisfying and fresh AF beer. Oh and did we mention the beer is free? Yeah, we’re talking about schooners of XXXX Bitter for zero dollarydoos. Yep. 

When: Fridays in January from 5pm Where: The Oaks Hotel

Tiki Pontoon Party

Have you been looking for an excuse to party on a pontoon on Sydney Harbour? Well, we just found one bloody good one. Coca Cola is celebrating summer in typical Sydney style with a Tiki-style party happening on a pontoon that’s sitting right next to Rose Bay Wharf (you'll need to catch a short boat ride over to the party). The floating hut is only hanging around for two days so you’ll want to get in quickly for fun in the sun water activities and music courtesy of DJ Mashd N Kutcher. Stay hydrated kids and pop open one of those refreshing bevvies including the new Coca-Cola Raspberry and water. See you on the pontoon. 

When: Friday 12 & Sunday 13 January, 11am – 5pm Where: Rose Bay Wharf Who: this is an 18+ event and any underage individuals (aka 13-17 year olds) must be accompanied by or have a signed waiver from a parent or guardian

Saturday 13 January

Free Live Entertainment Hub at Gateway’s Summer Sessions 

Each weekend in January you can expect to be dazzled by musicians, acrobats, performers and jumbo games at Gateway’s Summer Sessions. Gateway has locked down talent like professional street artist, Hendrick, and ‘Kids of Leo,’ the World’s youngest sibling pop group from Australia’s Got Talent. Bring the kids, bring the adults, and most importantly, head here for more details.    When: Every weekend in January 11am - 4pm Where: Jessie Street Gardens (next to Gateway)

Cockatoo Island Campfire Sessions

What’s better than a Saturday arvo involving your crew, a couple of cheeky bevs around the campfire and some of Sydney’s best acoustic artists crooning in the background? TBH not much, unless said arvo involves an island in the harbour, obvs. Cockatoo Island is dishing up the chilled, summer goods this month. Throw in some cheese and wine and you’ve got yourself a pretty cracking arvo situation. More details here

When: Saturdays 13, 20 & 27 January Where: Cockatoo Island Cost: $25 (general admission), $15 (overnight visitors and concession), kids 12 and under are free. 

GLITTERBOX 

Yep, you’ve read that correctly. Glitterbox is literally a box filled with glitter and YOU, dancing your little heart out. Bump up Glitterbox on your summer to-do list ASAP, as it will only be around for the duration of Sydney festival. Head to The Meriton Festival Village in Hyde Park for this super funky experience. Warning—most fun guaranteed by ‘gramming the entire thing.

Bánh xèo seems to be designed to be eaten as a family. The batter, filling ingredients, and veggies aren’t complicated to prepare, but they don’t make sense to be bought or made to be eaten by yourself. You don’t just buy 1/4 pound of pork, 8 shrimps, or buy 1/4 head of lettuce. You kind …
