1. El Jannah's Charcoal Chicken - Granville
4-6 South St, Granville NSW 2142
02 9737 0977
If you are ever near Granville station, you will instantaneously smell the savoury burn of freshly grilled chicken wafting its way through the streets. I always seem to fill guilty after finishing a half chicken dolloped in that creamy garlic sauce. So. Good.
2. Circa Cafe - Parramatta
21 Wentworth St, Parramatta NSW 2150
This is probably one of my most favourite places to eat in Parramatta. Their petite location in the heart of Parramatta resembles the ones in Surry Hills with all its quirky antiques. They serve killer coffees with the best breakfast/brunch in the area for under $15.
3. Bach Dang - Canley Vale
46 Canley Vale Rd, Canley Vale NSW 2166
02 9727 9931
This seems like my family's favourite restaurant out in the west for all special occasions, or none at all. The place has a modest decor with white painted walls and great ambiance with fast and attentive service. Seafood is served fresh with your choosing of the crustacean.
4. Green Peppercorn - Fairfield
1 Hamilton Rd, Fairfield NSW 2165
02 9724 7842
This place is steadily gaining high popularity in the west. It is a modern thai and laos with a hint of french influence as the bird cages adorns the ceiling. The atmosphere is vibrant and seems to be bustling with people by dinner time. Best to go in early to avoid the queue.
5. Tan Viet Noodle House - Cabramatta
3/100 John St, Cabramatta NSW 2166
02 9727 6853
This just made the list. Might change it later...Anyway, there always seem to be a massive line here for the chicken noodles/rice during lunch time, but for good reason. Service is fast, and you get what you want. Crispy chicken skin with a generous serving of your choice of rice, dry noodles, or soupy noodles with a bowl of soup on the side.
Hope you guys enjoyed the list! Will add more pictures soon.
Note: these restaurants are just my personal faves; but there are plenty good restaurants in the west to try. Cheers! :)
