Yakitori Jin – Haberfield, Sydney

Yakitori Jin – Haberfield, Sydney

  So…I love yakitori. There’s no doubting that. It all started with Yardbird in Hong Kong, followed by Yardbird in Sydney (!) and other amazing yakitori places like Yakitori Yurippi in Crows Nest. There’s something about the small skewers that appeals to me, as well as […]

Templo – Hobart, Tasmania

Templo – Hobart, Tasmania

  When some friends found out I was in Hobart, they both (separately) told me we absolutely had to go to TEMPLO. I hadn’t even heard of TEMPLO – probably because it’s a fairly new member of the Hobart dining scene. We quickly rang up and made a booking, […]

Franklin – Hobart, Tasmania

Franklin – Hobart, Tasmania

  I just realised it’s quite odd to start a post with a picture of bread and butter…not very exciting is it! It is, however, the first course of many that we ate at FRANKLIN in Hobart. FRANKLIN is definitely one of the most well-known restaurants in […]

Breakfast in Hobart – Born in Brunswick, Pollen Tea Room, Jackman & McRoss

Breakfast in Hobart – Born in Brunswick, Pollen Tea Room, Jackman & McRoss

  Last week, DS and I had the pleasure of hanging out in Hobart, Tasmania. Tasmania is a place we’ve been wanting to go to for ages, so it felt a bit surreal to finally be there and doing that trip. We jammed a lot […]

Bar Brosé – Darlinghurst, Sydney

Bar Brosé – Darlinghurst, Sydney

  It’s kind of ironic that I’m writing a post about BAR BROSÉ from Tasmania. Analiese Gregory, the incredible chef who started BAR BROSÉ with Mitch Orr, is headed down here to Hobart to take over FRANKLIN. She’s taking over from David Moyle, who is heading over to Melbourne […]

Cirrus – Barangaroo, Sydney

Cirrus – Barangaroo, Sydney

  I’ve loved everything Brent Savage has done in all his restaurants. Yellow never misses the mark (go there for breakfast!), Bentley is incredible too. The only one I haven’t been to is Monopole, mainly because it’s also a wine bar and I don’t drink. When I heard that Cirrus […]

Holy Duck! – Chippendale, Sydney

Holy Duck! – Chippendale, Sydney

  If you know DS, you’ll know he loves duck. It’s definitely in his top 5 favourite foods. So, naturally, we got very excited when Matt from Cardinal Spin invited us to check out the new dinner menu at Holy Duck! in Chippendale! The restaurant has been around […]

Sasaki – Sydney

Sasaki – Sydney

  For DS’s birthday this year we thought we’d sort of re-live our honeymoon in Japan and head to Sasaki. In my opinion, it’s pretty much as close as you’ll get to Japan in Sydney!     The whole place is incredible. Starting from the fact […]

Pici – Wan Chai, Hong Kong

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 […]

Gudetama Cafe – Singapore

Gudetama Cafe – Singapore

  I’m not going to lie…the Gudetama Cafe was maybe, possibly, actually, really, the highlight of our trip to Singapore. We also may have been slightly delirious with excitement when we made that judgement. It’s kind of funny that we made sure that this was on […]

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

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! […]
