I think this little thai restaurant is quite new and nestled amongst all the outer restaurants along Willoughby Road in Crows Nest. Service was really quick (some of the food too pre-prepared) which was good for a quick dinner before a long and silly karaoke session in the city!
Thai milk tea ($4.50)
Satay chicken 6pcs ($5.90)
Deep fried taro ($5.90)
Mussaman duck ($18.90)
Mango sticky rice
The Food Zoo experience: I would recommend the thai milk tea (one of my favourite drinks). Although there wasn’t enough ice to make it icy cold – but at the same time, it meant that you didn’t finish your drink in two sips leaving a cup of ice behind. I found the massaman duck a bit expensive given there were only a few pieces of duck in the dish and couldn’t taste anything in the fried taro except for sweet chilli sauce. The satay chicken was well served and the mango sticky rice (the price escapes me). I think I would go back to this place for my favourites and maybe give a chance to the other items on the menu!

It seemed not so long ago that I was here with my most favourite person in the world. It’s so lonely not having you around but I feel so lucky that you will always have a place for me in your heart. When life gets tough and time passes by too slowly, I can always imagine you reminding me “everything happens for a reason”- even though I have yet to figure out what that reason is.
Anyway, I digress! Moody Chef is one of the few places I love going back to for the relaxed atmosphere, sweet memories and most importantly – good food! There are plenty of indoor (booth seating and private function room) and outdoor options which means it’s pet friendly!
They have their own range of sauces & jams!
Milkshake, Wild berry smoothie, Mocha
Chunky chips with peri-peri aoli ($8.90)
Poached eggs & Kipfler potato, bacon hash ($17.90)
Grilled chorizo and roast tomato bruschetta with fresh ricotta, poached eggs & pesto ($16.90)
Delicious runny poached eggs!
Poached eggs on spanish txitorra sausage with chickpea fries, chilli jam & wood fired toast ($17.90)
Nutella and mascarpone pancakes ($15.90)
The Food Zoo experience: The pancakes – oh my – were to die for. I have been going through a nutella phase and what I loved about the pancakes were the generous slabs of nutella between each pancake. Yes… I said “between”!!! I could happily die from a nutella overdose! I also really liked the poached eggs and the chunky fries get a thumbs up from me! I wasn’t a huge fan of the kipfler potatoes and bacon hash (was hoping the potatoes would be crispier and there were bits of hash which were just bacon fat) but there are plenty of other options and I will gladly go back go back to tick off each item from the menu!
