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 […]

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 […]

Lotus – Barangaroo, Sydney

Lotus – Barangaroo, Sydney

I’ve always been a huge fan of Lotus Restaurant. I first went to the one in the Galeries (and been there a dozen times or so since!), followed by a trip to the original Lotus down on Hickson Road. I know it’s terrible to admit, but before […]

ABC Restaurant and Bar – Potts Point

ABC Restaurant and Bar – Potts Point

  We’re always really excited to hear about a new cafe or restaurant opening in Potts Point. We like to think it’s ‘our area’ when it’s really not… Close enough though! We love Italian food (who doesn’t!), so when we heard that ABC Restaurant and Bar […]

The Butcher’s Block – Wahroonga, Sydney

The Butcher’s Block – Wahroonga, Sydney

Brunch with the mother-in-law? No worries if you’ve got The Butcher’s Block in Wahroonga round the corner from her place!
