THE WHALE RESTAURANT is an establishment my mother loves. The parental units live on Wallaga Lake just out of Bermagui on the South Coast of NSW. They are about 15mins from a fantastic coastal town called Narooma and Narooma is a South Coast tourist hub. With a caravan park, apartments and many AirBNBs, plus some fracking […]

MONSTER Kitchen and Bar at Hotel Hotel in the Nishi Building of the NewActon Precint of Canberra is my favourite venue in the Capital of Australia. I am obsessed with it, a restaurant in one of the most creative buildings I have ever seen. Everything in the building and NewActon precinct is artistic and visually […]

The Méjico/ INDU food group is one of my fave restaurant groups in Sydney. Their Méjico at Miranda is one of my favourite Mexican restaurants in the massively wider greater Sydney and INDU is just sublime with their modern Indian fusion cuisine. So when I was asked a while back if I wanted to visit their […]

PappaRich is what I would call a high-end franchise of Malaysian restaurants. They now have twenty three venues across Australia and all of them are successful independent businesses. I love Malaysian food and with the meteoric rise of food love in Australia it isn’t just Chinese and Thai venues dotted everywhere. There is now food […]

Here’s a to a big happy start to the 2017 snow season! So happy that the snow is falling again and the wonderful mountains are open. I thought it was an appropriate time to pull my finger out and post my review for the wonderful Thredbo Burger Bar at the Knickerbocker in Thredbo. When I […]

The Ball & Chain Grill located in Salamanca Place Hobart is one of the must visit places I had heard about when planning the Tasmania trip with mother dearest. An old stalwart venue of Hobart I was sold by the reviews, the history and the food. A restaurant that is all about fresh produce and […]

ECHO ON THE MARINA is a stunning, hidden venue on Middle Harbour, attached to the Roseville Chase Marina. It is set in what feels more like National Park and if you haven’t been told about it you would never know it existed. I have visited the venue twice now. My first visit was a disaster, a […]

Wildbrumby, in between Jindabyne and Thredbo is one of my most favourite places in Australia. There are so many reasons why but mostly because it is a destination venue. I am always on a high when in the Snowy Mountains, whether in Summer or Winter, and whenever I am there Wildbrumby is on top of […]

I have walked past the Noodle & Dumpling Canteen a hundred times or more. It’s located right near the Hoyts cinema in Westfield that I do a lot of work at. I was curious by the venue, I love Japanese food, could basically live on it if push came to shove. I got excited when a large […]

Howdy, I grew up with a cook mum who made many many nomnoms. My passion has always been four things: food, movies, photography and wine. Somehow this meant I would become a cinema projectionist/ technician, food critic, home cook, food photographer and wine addict - so basically win win - enjoy life and NEVER diet - just be healthy :)
