    Rhodes Find a Foodie

    The Fat Couple

    Introducing Jasmin and Warren, the Rhodes locals responsible for the popular Instagram @TheFatCouple.
    The duo have been selected as the Rhodes Waterside foodies, and will be bringing you reviews of their eats around centre each month on their Instagram @thefatcouple and here on our website.

    TOMODACHI TIME

    We chose Tomodachi Japanese Restaurant as our third stop as The Official Rhodes Waterside Foodies! @rhodeswaterside March weather has been incredible, which has really left us wanting fresh & summery food!
    It’s a fantastic spot on Level 1 of the Centre, with 3 dining options: Indoors, Al Fresco on the balcony & the sushi train. We opted for Al Fresco dining and were seated promptly. We ordered the Agedashi Tofu, Kingfish Tataki, Beef Teriyaki Bento and Deluxe Assorted Sashimi. We started with the Agedashi Tofu, with its light and crispy tempura which was perfectly partnered with a delicious sauce. Then we had the Kingfish Tataki which was fresh and light, served with a packed full of flavour dressing. Our mains came out & looked incredible! The Beef Teriyaki Bento was packed full of goodies – we immediately regretted our decision to get entrees, as this dish was super filling on its own!
    It was like entrée, main and dessert, all presented in a pretty box!
    Then came the main event, the Deluxe Assorted Sashimi, beautifully presented on a platter – the seafood was incredibly fresh!

    Tomodachi is the perfect spot for a date night! We were impressed with the food and staff!
    We can’t wait to come back for the sushi train!
    Stay tuned for our next Rhodes food adventure!

    RIBS AT RHODES

    For February, we visited @ribsandburgers to dine with as The Official Rhodes Waterside Foodies! @rhodeswaterside  We popped by on a weeknight, because we weren’t in the mood to cook! (Any excuse for good food ) We also opted to dine in because no one enjoys washing the dishes However, Ribs & Burgers is quite a popular Take Away and Delivery option for many around the area! 
    Ribs & Burgers is a relaxed style restaurant suitable for everyone! Families, couples or if you’re grabbing a quick bite alone, simply place your order at the counter & grab any available table! They also have an Alfresco dining section ☀️ As their name suggests, they do Ribs & Burgers and they do them exceptionally well! We had the Cheese & Bacon and Wagyu Chimmi & Swiss Burgers They we’re both mouthwatering! Patty’s were juicy, and flavours balanced perfectly! We certainly couldn’t say no to some ribs, so we decided on Pork Baby Back Ribs (so juicy) & Boneless Beef Ribs (too easy to eat & less messy) Both also mouthwatering & perfectly cooked - with just the right amount of char!

    The service here was friendly and efficient and thankfully the menus are easy to read and understand!
    Oh & they do a pretty amazing milkshake too!
    Stay tuned for our March food adventure & let us know if you have any suggestions for the centre!

    BREAKFAST AT LILLY'S

    We chose @lillysespressocucina as our first venue to dine with as The Official Rhodes Waterside Foodies! @rhodeswaterside 
    As locals, we’re always headed to Lilly’s for their delicious special takeaway pizzas, but have never taken the time to actually eat there! 
    It was buzzing on a Sunday morning - with both options to eat indoors and outdoors almost at capacity, so we could tell it’s quite a favourite! Even the line up for takeaway coffee was out the door! 
    We ordered a fresh orange and watermelon juice as well as an iced coffee, to cool down. Both options were refreshing and tasty! 
    For brunch we opted for the Avo smash on Sourdough with extra bacon & halloumi, Fresh Fruit Salad and Pancakes.
    The Avo Smash was delicious! Eggs were perfectly cooked, which is kind of a big deal these days! 
    The fluffy pancakes were more of an adult option. Stacked with saffron poached pear, vanilla labneh, pistachio praline, orange glaze & pistachio crumb. 
    The Fruit salad was delightful, topped with natural yoghurt & Lilly’s home made granola. Definitely a top choice for summer!

    We had a great time dining at Lilly’s and it’s safe to say we’ll definitely be back for more!
