Otto Ristorante

Otto Ristorante, Woolloomooloo

January 8, 2015

While everyone else was returning to work after the Christmas break Dylan and I had an extra week off to enjoy some downtime and make the most of summer before kicking off another busy year. And while everyone else was at work the smart thing to do was book a long lunch at a restaurant […]

Rockpool Bar & Grill Sydney

Rockpool Bar & Grill Sydney, Sydney

May 3, 2014

Having respect for every venue under the Rockpool umbrella and great admiration for the man behind it all, I have recently found myself becoming a bit of a fanboy of sorts. So when news hit that there had been a fire at Rockpool Bar & Grill Sydney with extensive damage I was a bit sad. […]

sushi-e

sushi-e, March Into Merivale 2014, Sydney

April 4, 2014

Japanese is one of my favourite cuisines. I just love the precision that goes into it. While you can definitely recreate many dishes at home I always find that to get the most from Japanese food you need to go to a Japanese restaurant. Lex had been to sushi-e on a number of occasions with […]

momofuku seiōbo

momofuku seiōbo, Pyrmont

October 19, 2013

We booked our return visit to momofuku seiōbo on a whim. We couldn’t wait to get back and see what changes had been made to the menu and enjoy one of my favourite restaurants again. First time around Lex had sat out the beverage pairing as she had been cutting back on her alcohol intake. […]

The Tea Cosy

The Tea Cosy, The Rocks

September 28, 2013

High tea (or afternoon tea, whatever you want to call it) is one of my favourite ways to spend an afternoon but not something I get to do often enough. An excuse to eat cute little sandwiches (with no crusts!), indulge in a few scones with jam and cream and wash it all down with […]

Minetta Tavern vs Rockpool Bar & Grill

Minetta Tavern vs Rockpool Bar & Grill

August 28, 2013

One requirement for our New York trip was good local knowledge on the food scene. We didn’t specifically want or need to know every little nook and cranny of the city, but a nice running sheet would be nice to have. When it comes to burgers there is once place everyone said was a must […]

encasa

encasa, Sydney

May 22, 2013

encasa is an old favourite, a very old favourite. Before we even knew we loved to write about food this place was hallowed ground. I can recount the many times we ate more than what should be possible, drunk all the sangria our bellies could take and came out of it all only $35 lighter. […]

momofuku seiōbo

momofuku seiōbo, Pyrmont

May 4, 2013

A question that comes up four times a year with our crazy fine dining crew is ‘Where are you having your birthday dinner?’ In turn we select the one place that is the top of our respective list for whatever reason. For me it HAD to be momofuku seiōbo (pronounced say-oh-bo). Sure it was awarded […]

Flying Fish

Flying Fish, Pyrmont

May 1, 2013

This year I decided to take Dylan to Flying Fish for his birthday. I’d been a couple of times for corporate lunches but Dylan had never managed to get there himself. He bought me Peter Kuruvita’s My Sri Lanka DVD for my birthday and although Peter no longer works at Flying Fish, once Dylan watched […]

Sydney Seafood School

Sydney Seafood School with Giovanni Pilu, Pyrmont

April 13, 2013

In January I turned 30 and my family and friends spoiled me like you wouldn’t believe. My amazing brother and his girlfriend bought me a gift voucher for Sydney Seafood School. I was absolutely blown away by their generosity and as you can imagine I was completely stoked to be heading back to SSS after […]

Harry's Cafe de Wheels

Harry’s Cafe de Wheels, Woolloomooloo

March 2, 2013

A Tweet about pies was all it took for Lex to organise lunch at Harry’s Cafe de Wheels. Rain, wind and general miserable weather could not hold us away. We met Craig, Caroline, Mr O and Em for a bite to eat and here is what unfolded… Harry’s Tiger Pie ($6.20). Lex has an obsession […]

The Tea Cosy

The Tea Cosy, The Rocks

February 17, 2013

After lunch at Café Sydney we decided to go for a wander through The Rocks Markets before finding somewhere for dessert. I’d read a few things about The Tea Cosy beforehand and suggested Devonshire Tea (tea and scones) to the girls while we wandered through the markets. Em has recently become a tea drinker so […]

Cafe Sydney

Café Sydney, Sydney

February 17, 2013

Lunch with a long lost friend on a summery Sunday. Café Sydney had to be the choice with stunning water views and a contemporary menu where everyone can find something they like. Previously I’ve received nothing but hospitable service at Café Sydney. Unfortunately this time around we didn’t seem to hit things off with our […]

AKI's Indian

AKI’s Indian, Woolloomooloo

January 31, 2013

It seems to be a common occurrence, a restaurant we’ve wanted to get to for quite some time but just never made it for one reason or another. Aki’s has been on the list for a very long time and when Lex and I decided to take a week off after her 30th one of […]
