Walter & Thang


By Thang Ngo

Noodlies, Sydney food blog is less about sausage rolls and more about Vietnamese fresh rolls (goi cuon), less triple-cooked pork cheek fine dining and more about the humble ma & pa run eateries.

Noodlies uncovers authentic, culturally diverse food and culture around Sydney.  I live in south western Sydney – a wonderful, exciting, culturally diverse place which never ceases to surprise and delight. SBS sums up noodlies pretty well:

“Embedded in Cabramatta in Sydney’s culturally diverse south-west, Thang Ngo reports on popular restaurants as well as hole-in-the-wall eateries which still serve exciting authentic food. Vietnamese, Chinese, Lao, Thai, Cambodian, Iraqi, Lebanese, Italian, Chilean, Korean… he’s eaten, blogged, and lived to tell the tale.”

We rarely cook or eat at home.  Walter and I are busy with work and projects that means we don’t get time to cook.  But living in Cabramatta, we’re spoilt for choice.

There are lots of blogs about CBD and inner city Sydney eating, but not much that I could find that features food in our area.

In particular food that is fast, tasty and fresh.  I reckon that’s got to be the specialty of the area.  A bowl of steaming hot pho can be on your table within two minutes of ordering.

I wanted a blog that’s the answer to “where to eat in Cabramatta?” and “what’s the best restaurant in Cabramatta?”.

Hope you enjoy the food highlighted here.
