Alex’s top food picks in the Gong

If there is one thing everyone here at 2RS knows about Alex, it’s that he loves his grub. He talks about food 80% of the time and we are always asking him where he likes to eat out.

The Gong has plenty of great food spots, but I wanted to share with you Alex’s top 3 picks for food you can’t say no to!

Diggies at North Beach is a great place for lunch. When you just want to relax with friends, what better place to be than by the beach. With a menu boasting fresh seafood and delectable local produce, combined with ocean views and outstanding service, Diggies is a definite favourite. They open for breakfast from 6:30am, so whether it’s a pre-surf coffee, brunch with mates, or lunch with the family, this is the perfect spot for all occasions.

The Yard at the University of Wollongong has something for everyone. If you have a sweet tooth, the selection of cakes and pastries will surely satisfy. If you love your coffee, the baristas at The Yard have making a good cup down to a fine art. Personally, Alex opts for the mouth-watering sandwiches. Hello fried chicken.

Chickos is the Illawara’s leading takeaway spot. There is nothing better than knowing dinner is taken care of in minutes, especially if you have to feed the whole family. Roast chicken, salads, pastas and more. The variety at Chickos is massive. If you are in the mood to be healthy or in the mood to indulge, it’s the great, fast option for the way home.
