I have so many Canberra reviews backlogged, my apologies to the Capital for dropping the review ball on such fantastic food. Canberra, in my humble opinion, is comparable, if not better on many fronts, to Sydney food. It is a community that is arts driven, and also heavily politics based due to the area. It […]

Madame Nhu’s is nearly a commercial pho institution in Sydney. Starting in 2007 as a Summer Rolls specialty store Madame Nhu has now grown to five stores. Two of these are Summer Rolls outlets in Sydney and Surry Hills and three Vietnamese restaurants. Two of the restaurants are smaller food court outlets, in Chatswood and […]

PLAYA TAKERIA is a small, fun, bustling, traditional Mexican venue on Darlinghurst Rd in Darlinghurst. The playas are a bunch of hot Mexican guys wearing sleeveless black t-shirts with bronzed guns on full show and the logo in fluro pink highlighting their gym visiting chests. Their idea was to bring the Mexican street stall food experience […]

BARE GRILL is basically a burger institution of the Sydney burger scene. Their La Perouse venue is a little out of the way at the end of the Eastern Suburbs, but when I made my journey, thanks to an invite from Ompty, I was met with one of the most beautiful places I have been […]

HENRYS CRONULLA is a venue I wanted to visit over a photograph of wallpaper I saw on their instagram. You can kind of see the wallpaper on the left hand side of the below pic. It is a beautiful motif of drawn banana leaves and is very green and vibrant. In front of it that […]

Finally kicked myself up the butt to get back to the blog. There have been so many events taking place in the lead up to Christmas that there is basically no time to actually write about the events. Catch 22 but not a bad one – lots of dining out and delicious menus and venues […]

DUCK DUCK GOOSE is a fantastic rustic cafe in Randwick. I had heard some great things about this place, mainly because they make burgers, but was very keen to check it out. Thanks to the Ompty boys I got to indulge in a brilliant brunch that truly satisfied the stomach and surprised me in its […]

SALMON & BEAR will make my top ten venues of 2016. This venue is ALL me. I loved everything about it and am taking the parents back in two weeks to show it off to them. They also hold a dear spot in my heart as they saved my livelihood and job. I walked out […]

It was exactly two months ago I visited this fantastic cafe in Potts Point. I remember clearly, the morning following I drove to the snow for a week’s holiday. It was pissing down with rain, I still had a hacking cough, it was freezing and it was blowing a gale plus I caught a ferry in […]

Thanks, yet again, to those wonderful gents at Ompty I was invited to attend an influencer’s dinner at Rubyos in Newtown. Now when eating out in Newtown the first thing that comes to mind is my sheer panic of “will I find a park?” The good news is Rubyos is located right at the beginning of […]

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 :)
