When it comes to the weekend, Matt & I tend to be creatures of habit. But every once in a while, we get brave and check out new places in nearby suburbs. Lately, we’ve been hitting up these local spots for eating and finding used goods. I’m pretty confident that once you try Silvas Portuguese Charcoal Chicken in Petersham, you’ll keep coming back for more. I’ve had lots of chicken in my day, but their Silvas burger and homemade potato salad (on the takeaway menu) will have you hooked like nothing else. And after you’re good and full, why not swing by Reverse Garbage in Marrickville? Whether you’re on the hunt for cool art supplies or simply love rummaging through used goods, this place has got it all. They are chock full of lovely random things and you won’t want to leave empty handed as there are dozens of bargains to claim for yourself.
