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 […]

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 […]
