Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel

Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel has been dubbed by countless foodies and critics as one of Sydney’s most ‘Instagrammable’ places, and it certainly lives up to this title. A few months ago the hotel underwent over $2 million worth of multi-level renovations. Previously known as a beach club for old-timers, the renovations have brought every generation flocking for…

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,…

The Publican at The Eastern, Bondi Junction

If there ever was a perfect combination of food and booze, jaffles and beer would certainly be in the running. There’s not much more you crave after a night out than a warm, cheesy and toasty jaffle. And that’s exactly where the inspiration for the newly opened bar, The Publican, on the Eastern Hotel’s ground…

The Carrington, Surry Hills

Last Sunday, Sydney had beautiful weather. And what better to do on a gorgeous Sunday morning? Go for a late breakfast. I knew that The Carrington in Surry Hills had a new brekky menu so I was keen to check it out. The Carrington is your old-fashioned neighbourhood pub with good food and good vibes. This pub-come-restaurant…

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…

Puntino, Wolloomooloo

You know that deliciously smokey and natural woodfire smell that screams high-school campfire nostalgia with damper bread drenched in maple syrup? That is the smell that greets you upon entering Tony Sabia’s Italian restaurant, Puntino. They say (whoever they are) that Tony or ‘Mr Woodfire,’ brings the best of Southern Italy’s Basilicata region to Sydney…
