It’s a sweltering day in Sydney, just brutal, the kind of day camels are nervous to go outside. Regardless it’s the day that we booked Glass Brasserie for lunch so we swallow the $140 taxi ride through murderous Sydney traffic and land at the Hilton for a meal I’ve been salivating over for months. Continue reading Glass Brasserie
One night in the city of Brisbane, where o where to eat? After a quick check of Trip Advisor and a scan of what’s close to the hotel, Miel Container Burgers runs to the front of the pack. Bun and Cam will be joining me as they’re in town on business so the three of us meet up at the Container on Mary Street in the CBD. Continue reading Miel Container Burgers
Sometimes the best food is when you least expect it or necessarily aren’t even hungry. Whist on Holidays up in Yamba just randomly driving around checking out the sights I need a coffee hit. Bun is driving and we end up in a little seaside hamlet called ‘Angourie’. On the ‘main road’ I see a restaurant, it’s not really even open yet for dinner but I see a couple of waitresses milling about. Thus began a wonderfully unexpected couple of hours in culinary delight at ‘Barbaresco’, an Italian eatery across the road from ‘Spooky Beach’. Continue reading Barbaresco
Back when I was a young whippersnapper I worked around the corner from Rockpool Bar & Grill. I was a clerk at the Department of Education; I rocked the shoulder pads suit and blonde streaked haircut, it was the 80’s and anything went. I was a man about town; well at least I thought so. Tonight I enter Rockpool Bar & Grill with no hair or shoulder pads but I’ve got something that matters more, an appetite. Continue reading Rockpool Bar & Grill
Nestled a block back from the main road running through Morisset is a little gem. Italian in flavor, homely in attitude. Jess the owner has created an experience where you nestle in as the fireplace sizzles and dabble through a weekly changing menu depending on what’s seasonally available. Continue reading The Olde Bakehouse
Aria is on my wish list, its time to take it off. The Matt Moran owned restaurant with 2 Chef’s Hats and a view that no mere mortal could afford little own wish for, which overlooks Sydney Harbour. Continue reading Aria
Bun is away right now but far be it for me to deny my culinary cravings and stay home alone. So, I find myself flying solo at China Doll for a lazy lunch.
Sitting pretty on Finger Wharf at Woolloomooloo this Asian cuisine hotspot really has one of the prime locations in Sydney.
Back in the mid 80’s when mullets were in and Madonna was the hottest thing around I lived on Glebe Point Road in a hostel with ten other blokes, we spent nights trying to cram into a kitchen to cook what could be loosely described as ‘food’. Afterwards we would watch episodes of Neighbours and wait for the day that Kylie and Jason got married.

It was just a matter of time before I ended up on King Street, Newtown tickling the tasty buds and mixing it with the hipsters, groovers and musos. This recommendation (as if I have any of my own) comes from my little buddy ‘Swami’ who joins me this evening. Continue reading Pastizzi Cafe
Italian cuisine in my world is king. Hence here I am at another Italian joint, quite different from Buon Ricordo but nonetheless reveling in its own charm. Continue reading Pasta Emilia
