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 […]

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 […]

Quay, The Rocks

January 26, 2013

It has become a bit of tradition for the four of us (Lex, Em, Mr O & I) to make birthdays the pinnacle of our gastronomic explorations. The 4 days of the year we let loose – literally, I went sans belt – and do not let our logical budget conscious minds interfere with our […]

If you’ve read some earlier posts or follow me on Twitter you would know I love Grain, the new bar at the Four Seasons Hotel Sydney. Dylan and I were invited to the opening and have returned several times since. I love the design, being able to sit at the high tables and watch the […]

Rockpool on George, The Rocks (Relocated)

December 1, 2012

Turning 30 worries some of my friends, but for most of us it’s a reason to celebrate. We celebrated Dylan’s 30th with a group of friends at our beloved buzo. Em’s shindig was at her favourite, Sepia. My birthday, which falls at the end of January, has been booked in at Quay for many months […]

Spring is in the air and the party season vibe is starting to amp up. I just love this time of the year. It’s also the season for new life – there seems to be openings left, right and centre. Monday 10th September saw the opening of GRAIN, a bespoke bar at Four Seasons Hotel, […]

Ocean Room, Sushi & Sashimi Masterclass, The Rocks (Closed)

August 25, 2012

Dylan and I both love Japanese food, especially sashimi, so we were thrilled to have been invited to a sushi and sashimi masterclass at Ocean Room. And what a stunning winters day in Sydney; with barely a cloud in sight it was a perfect day to head down to the waterfront. Ocean Room is located […]

When Dylan and I were deciding what to do for our 6th anniversary we ummed and ahhed for quite some time. For our 4th anniversary we dined at 4 restaurants (4 for 4), for our 5th anniversary we spent two weeks travelling from Sydney to the Great Ocean Road and Melbourne. We ate a lot […]

Sailors Thai Canteen, The Rocks

August 27, 2011

With no real plan as to where we wanted to eat after attending KOFFIA at the Dendy I made a quick call to Azuma at Chiefly to see if there were any tables available. Of course being a Saturday night we were out of luck so we decided to wander down to The Rocks and […]

Rockpool

Rockpool, The Rocks (Relocated)

December 4, 2010

It was around ten years ago I first had the urge to go to Rockpool, back when I was still at Uni and this vision was only a pipe dream. My admiration for Neil Perry only grew over the years and when I finally realised I was a foodie it dawned on me that I […]
