3 Weeds for Dinner

But that's not what we ate!

I have to admit, the Inner West is not my usual watering-hole but with the majority of our party of four hailing from nearby, I did some research and came up with a handful of options.

Having been establshed in 1881, The 3 Weeds in Rozelle definitely has the atmosphere of a grand old pub. (It was allegedly once owned by Dawn Fraser and as such was the homebase of the Balmain Tigers. According to the taxi driver who drove me home that night, it even boasted a tiger's head which lit up when the team won a match!)

Get Twisted!

You know when you've been really really good to yourself? You've eaten the right mix of carbs, protein, vegetables, fruit and fibre and you feel so energetic you could run a marathon? You know that moment when you feel like something cold, sweet and delicious but you don't want to ruin the great way you feel? Well, now you can get TWISTED!

Looking like it wouldn't look out of place in New York, Twisted is a newly opened frozen yoghurt cafe in Bondi but if you think this is just another frozen yoghurt, think again. The co-founder of the company, Cassandra Spies, spent quite a while researching the product and with her background in food technology, she has hit upon the most luscious, smooth, mouth-fulfilling, creamy, un-yoghurt like frozen yoghurt I have ever tried. It's made from freshly made yoghurt everyday, yes folks, it's NOT a premix!
