Campsie Food Festival 2011

4 Jun

First time at Campsie Food Festival. The weather wasn’t very good, a bit cloudy, but at least it wasn’t raining.
Campsie

Campsie is said to be a place with Korean cuisine as the predominate flavour, but the annual Campsie Food Festival definitely provided a wide range of food cuisine that reflects cultural diversity. There were French crêpes, Spanish churros, Japanese Octopus Balls, Korean kimchi, Thai curry, Indian mango lassi and more .

Grab a Chiko!

4 Jun

Chiko Roll is an Aussie icon, a deep-fried wrap that consists of beef and vegetables. It was inspired by Chinese egg rolls and spring rolls, and was once a popular snack at football matches. They are now found at supermarkets, and fish and chips shops.

I think the filling of Chiko Roll  does taste a bit like Chinese spring roll; the outer wrap is crunchy but the texture is different, more chewy than spring roll.

I like how the Chiko Roll is despatched with its famous CHIKO serving bag. Very unique and eye-catching!

Perfect on-the-go snack, and when you just want a quick snack!

It’s uniquely Aussie! Give it a try if you visit here!

P.S. I bought mine at Quay Seafood Fish and Chips at Circular Quay (AUD$3).
