Yayoi Japanese Teishoku Restaurant

When someone asks me what my favourite cuisine is I usually reply “Oh well I love thai and italian. That’s too boring, isn’t it?” However, recently my reply has become different. I’m increasingly turning to Japanese as my go-to dining choice as well as Saturday night take-in. Why? I can’t quite put my finger on…

Governor’s Table @ Museum of Sydney

Inspired by the rich history of Sydney, The Governor’s Table at the Museum of Sydney is well-worth the visit, even for Sydney locals. The small yet intimate restaurant (soon to be expanding) perfectly captures the feel of early Australia, especially with the use of basic décor such as stone, timber and steel to mirror what…

IPPUDO Sydney

If you dream of pork buns and ramen noodles then there’s a restaurant in Sydney city that you need to try out. Ippudo which has restaurants in New York, Singapore, Seoul, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Shanghai is now my new go-to Japanese restaurant when I’ve got a hankering for pork buns and noodles (which is often). Walking…

Cottage Bar and Kitchen, Balmain

Cottage Bar and Kitchen in Balmain is a quaint and rustic restaurant with a lovely homely vibe. Stepping inside its doors is a welcomed changed from the bustle of Darling Street, making you feel as if you’ve entered a vintage style farmhouse. With kitsch style like your grandma’s house and a warm, relaxed ambience,  it’s no wonder…

Mexico Food and Liquor

Last Wednesday night I ventured to Mexico Food and Liquor in Surry Hills. I’d been keen to try out this mexican tapas bar for a while because I’d heard only good reviews about it. With a 120 seated capacity, featuring communal tables as well as the option for your own little side-bar seating that lines the back…

Fat Rupert’s, Bondi

After many weeks (OK, months) of wanting to check out Fat Rupert’s on Bondi Road, Bondi, tonight, I finally got the chance. Truth be told I’ve had many chances, however, that’s not the point. The point is that Fat Rupert’s has some seriously delicious cocktails and mighty good tucker that you just can’t go past.…

Old Town in Newtown

 As people flock to Newtown to experience the throng of new and ‘cool’ eateries, it’s easy to miss the true gems hiding beneath the shadows. One such gem is the 8 month old family run café/restaurant, Oldtown in Newtown, run by Italian migrants and mother-daughter duo Ella and Elisa. Ella has a background in hospitality,…

New Shanghai, Ashfield

Whether you’re a pork lover, seafood fanatic or a passionate vegetarian, New Shanghai in Ashfield brings the best of Shanghai-style cuisine to Sydney and it’s damn good tucker (I can still call it tucker even though it’s Chinese food) away from the CBD. Sydney’s suburbs provide unusually rich pickings for intrepid foodies keen on traipsing…

Ocean Room, Circular Quay, Sydney

As a self confessed fair dinkum red meat lover, a degustation at the Ocean Room was always going to be interesting. Entering the restaurant I knew my tastebuds were in for something special. The chic architecture fused with an oriental feel symbolised exactly what I was about to eat – quintessential Japanese ingredients with a modern…
