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

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 […]

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 […]

The Grounds of the City – Sydney CBD

The Grounds of the City – Sydney CBD

  So THE GROUNDS OF THE CITY has been around for a few months now – but actually getting in is seriously difficult. In the first couple of weeks I kept walking past and was always told the wait would be at least 2 hours. Wow! That’s […]

The Bach Eatery – Newtown, Sydney

The Bach Eatery – Newtown, Sydney

  I’ve been wanting to try THE BACH EATERY  for ages! For some reason I haven’t really hung out in Newtown in a while… Luckily Hamilton does hang out in Newtown a fair bit, so it made sense to catch up with him over dinner there. They […]

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 […]

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 […]
