Izakaya Yebisu – Sydney CBD

Izakaya Yebisu – Sydney CBD

  Hands up if you love yakitori!!! If you do (and who doesn’t really – it’s grilled meat on sticks…) then IZAYAKA YEBISU is the place for you. It’s a traditional izakaya-style Japanese restaurant, which means it has many small dishes on the menu that are […]

nel. Restaurant Christmas Menu 2017 – Sydney, Australia

  This week nel. restaurant launched it’s Christmas menu! I was so excited when DS told me he’d booked us in for a date night. You might remember that last year’s Christmas menu made my top eats of 2016! When Chef Nelly Robinson told me that this […]

Bespoke Kitchen – Queenstown, New Zealand

Bespoke Kitchen – Queenstown, New Zealand

  On our last morning in Queenstown, New Zealand, mum and I decided to have breakfast in town rather than at our beautiful resort, Millbrook Resort. BESPOKE KITCHEN is so Sydney. By that I mean, it would totally fit into what is currently trendy in Sydney. You know […]

Cafe Paci ‘Cooking by Colours’ GREEN – @ Mecca Alexandria, Sydney

  On the final night of CAFE PACI’S ‘COOKING BY COLOURS’, CK and I headed over to MECCA in Alexandria for their green menu. If that sentence doesn’t make sense to you, here’s some explanation! A couple of years ago, a wonderful restaurant called CAFE PACI popped up […]

Manoosh Pizzaria – Enmore, Sydney

Manoosh Pizzaria – Enmore, Sydney

  Sometimes, when I’m invited to try out a restaurant, things don’t go quite how I expected them to go. For example, when I was invited to MANOOSH PIZZARIA in Enmore, I was picturing your classic little Italian pizzaria, probably with wooden floors and plastic chairs, […]

Fable Coffee – Darlinghurst, Sydney

Fable Coffee – Darlinghurst, Sydney

  I love finding out about new food places near home! It also means I’m much more likely to go back a second (or third!) time – ha! FABLE COFFEE totally fit the bill for my ideal cafe. It’s close by (of course) and serves interesting and […]

Provisions of Arrowtown – Arrowtown, New Zealand

  I wanted to share these couple of photos of our lunch at PROVISIONS OF ARROWTOWN, a super cute cafe in Arrowtown, New Zealand. You may have read in my previous post that mum and I were staying at Millbrook Resort last week. It’s the most […]

Millhouse Restaurant – Arrowtown, New Zealand

Millhouse Restaurant – Arrowtown, New Zealand

  If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ll see that I’m currently in New Zealand with my mum! We’re staying in an incredible resort called MILLBROOK RESORT which is actually located near Arrowtown, a little town about 30 minutes out of Queenstown. It’s all incredibly convenient […]

Madame Shanghai – Darlinghurst, Sydney

Madame Shanghai – Darlinghurst, Sydney

  Continuing with the birthday adventures from last month…S, DS and I checked out MADAME SHANGHAI for my second birthday dinner. The address says it’s in Darlinghurst, but really it’s on the edge of Hyde Park so that’s pretty much the city to me. The restaurant […]

Matteo – Double Bay, Sydney

Matteo – Double Bay, Sydney

  The opening of MATTEO was very much anticipated in Double Bay. Not only did it mean the long vacant site of former Italian restaurant Limoncello was finally being filled (by another Italian, nonetheless!). It also meant that Orazio D’Elia’s (of Da Orazio fame) food was now […]

Pici – Wan Chai, Hong Kong

  Looking for a neighbourhood Italian restaurant in Wan Chai, Hong Kong? You’ve definitely got it in Pici!     On our last trip to Hong Kong over Easter we spent a lot of time exploring Wan Chai. We totally loved Elephant Grounds there and really enjoyed […]

Spiga – Central, Hong Kong

Spiga – Central, Hong Kong

My cousin J (who is a total foodie as well!) recommended Spiga to mum and I for a quiet but nice dinner. It’s a super cool space in one of the big sky scraper office blocks in Central. I’m still getting used to the fact that […]

Meen & Rice – Repulse Bay, Hong Kong

Meen & Rice – Repulse Bay, Hong Kong

We were lucky enough to have some amazing weather while in Hong Kong! It was so unusual for April. I’m talking about clear skies, warm, sunny days. It made total sense then to spend some days with my cousins and nephew playing in the sand […]

Café Causette @ Mandarin Oriental – Central, Hong Kong

Café Causette @ Mandarin Oriental – Central, Hong Kong

When I say I grew up in hotels, I mean that literally. As an infant, my first steps were taken at Tiffin, the coffee shop at the Grand Hyatt in Hong Kong. We went to the Chinese restaurant, One Harbour Road, at the same hotel […]

Brew Bros Coffee – Sheung Wan, Hong Kong

Hey folks! If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ll see that I’ve been hanging out in Hong Kong, a.k.a my original home. Having said that, Sydney habits die hard and so I’m always on the lookout for a good, Sydney-cafe-style breakfast when I’m here! […]
