Small Town Food & Wine Restaurant
Alex Delly and wife Jo Thomas of St Isidore fame have opened their latest venture, ‘Small Town’ in the heart of Milton.
Their reputation alone speaks volumes for their ability to serve quality fine dining meals at affordable prices, having been awarded a ‘Chefs Hat’ by the ‘Good Food Guide’ in 2019, 2018, 2017, & 2016 and being ranked by ‘Gourmet Traveller’ in the top six N.S.W. regional restaurants in 2018, 2017, & 2016 with their previous restaurant, St Isidore.
My wife and I (Ken and June Banks) recently enjoyed the ‘CHEFS SELECTION MENU’ a degustation lunch. The fusion of flavours in each of the eight serving courses was extraordinary, each matched with quality wine that complemented each course. Alex, without a doubt has a unique creative genius in his vision and ability to prepare meal after meal that is amazing.
Some fine dining friends visited ‘Small Town’ two days later and were delighted by the delicate flavours and culinary skills of the chef with quality matching wines. Guests from Mollymook Beach Waterfront have also been unanimous in eloquently describing their experience in regard to quality and variety of flavoursome dishes, service and ambience. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Matt Upson’s new venture: Gwylo Restaurant Mollymook
Chef extraordinaire, Matt Upson opens his latest venture: Gwylo Restaurant, Mollymook

Matt has a super impressive background, having originally worked in South Australia for Cheong Liew, Simon Bryant and thereafter stints at Southern Ocean Lodge on Kangaroo Island and Capella,at Lord Howe Island.
In 2010, after having travelled extensively through Asia, he and his partner moved to the south coast and open Tallwood in 2013. Tallwood was an outstanding success ranking among the best in the local area. Now 2020, Matt steps out to showcase his latest venture, the highly anticipated Gwylo Restaurant.
Gwylo is an ‘Asian Fusion’ style restaurant with an ever changing menu of ‘punchy Asian street food flavours’.
According to ‘Wikipedia’ “fusion food has become very popular as it offers culinary adventures based on unique and distinctive tastes, to the mainstream culinary culture. Food Fusion is a form of cooking that combines contrasting culinary traditions or techniques into a single dish. In Australia, due to the increasing influx of migrants, fusion cuisine is being reinvented and is becoming increasingly the norm at numerous cafes and restaurants, with Modern Australian Asian-fusion restaurants like Tetsuya’s in Sydney ranking highly in The World’s 50 Best Restaurants.”

Cheryl’s Choice: The Mutawintji National Park, Outback NSW
The Real Outback, NSW, 100’s of klm’s travelling on dirt roads.
Another incredible day, a visit to this majestic National Park that ought to be on most peoples ‘Bucket List’.
The Mutawintji National Park, is located in the Far West region of New South Wales. It is approx. 170,290 acre in size and situated approximately 880 kilometres west of Sydney. It is rugged and dissected by colourful gorges, rockpools and creek beds lined with red gums. Scattered among the caves and overhangs are Aboriginal rock art and engravings. There are eight major walks, each with there own uniqueness. Cheryl chose the the Mutawintji gorge walk. Each walk varied in length and time, but generally each varied from 2 hours to say 4 hours with one particular historic walk only possible with an Aboriginal guide. You could camp in the area and do a number of walks over a few days if you were so inclined. (Thanks Cheryl, a marvellous choice)
Besides the Mutawintji National Park, the Mollymook Ocean Swimmers later travelled to White Cliffs, and the following day to Wilcannia and then Bourke.
