Arthur’s Pizza – Maroubra

Arthur’s pizza is one of those staple Italian joints – your local where you can call up for that Friday night pizza when you can’t be bothered cooking (or on any night really) and you can always guarantee it’s tasty. They’ve been in the business for over 30 years.

Beginning in the 1970’z, they offered alternatives to the regular cheese and tomato options, they soon became popular with their creative flavour combinations. They’ve have continued to grow, and now have stores in a number of locations: Randwick, Paddington and now also Bexley, Maroubra, Glebe and Rosebery.

Arthur’s stores have a family atmosphere and super casual which makes it a comfortable place to socialise. That, in combination with reasonable prices makes for a good eat in or takeaway option.

We visited in a group so were able to sample a variety of things from the menu including entrees, pizza, pasta and salads.

Entree wise, we ate the saucy meatballs and garlic prawns – these were cooked and served in thick tomato type sauce so a lot of the flavour was retained.

Pizzas come in different sizes; small, medium, large and family. There’s plenty of flavour combinations, but you can pay a little extra if you want any additions. There’s also Gluten free options.

We had the following pizzas – all really good choices!

Campollo: Chicken Fillet, Semi-Dried Tomato, Red Onion, Camembert, Basil

Sassri: Lamb Fillets, Fetta Cheese, Red Onions, Sweet Potato, Mint

Nitro: Pepperoni, Onions, Capsicum, Bacon, Chilli

In addition, we enjoyed the creamy Bosciola pasta with bacon and mushroom and well as the super flavour some mushroom risotto.

With so many delicious carbs, we needed some salads to balance out or lunch and we tried the Greek salad and also a lovely rocket and Parmesan one too.

By the end of this we were super food but did a great job finishing it off. Unfortunately we were too full for dessert, but if you’re not, Nutella pizza or tiramisu would be my pick!

Be inspired by flavour and design @Cafe 0.6

Cafe Zero Point Six (0.6) is a trendy little cafe and retail space in Bowden Street in Alexandria. Having driven past a number of times and not visited, I saw some instagram coverage from friends which inspired me to visit.

A big and bright space, scandi styled, it has a very beautiful aesthetic appearance. They have a small retail space selling some cool handmade gifts like cards and candles.

We were there on a Saturday morning at it wasn’t too busy at all. We sat down and ordered coffees. Unfortunately they were out of cold brew on this day, so the waitress suggested a long black over ice. We also got some filtered coffee over ice and a cappucino.

The food here is pretty interesting, with a Japanese influence. They’re quite keen on their carbs and have a range of bread inspired dishes, in particular croissants.

As a group, we all ordered different things to share, including the Farmer’s Jo granola, topped with plain yoghurt and fruit – a good option if you’re into something healthy.

The SMH was great – creamy scrambled eggs and haloumi on a brioche bun

The tastiest dish was definately the “Pop da Prawns” or lightly battered prawns and a secret sauce on a in house made croissant with fresh avocado.

Wanting something other than a croissant, I got the crispy chicken thigh (an extremely generous serving on a cauliflower puree and salad. This was a lovely dish and thoroughly recommended.
