There are days where you crave carb like no other…then, there’s me. Carbs all day, errrrrday. Having been on an Italian food binge for the last few days, I thought it fitting to up the ante and have a girls night out in Leichhardt. There’s no shortage of options in Leichhardt, but for an intimate group of friends who long for hearty Italian in a beautiful, elegant dining space, it had to be Grappa.
We love a good Korean BBQ. One that usually involves grilling marinated meats and vegetables, lots of appetising side dishes, great service and a relaxed atmosphere. Upon hearing that 678 Korean BBQ have opened up in a huge spacious lot in Eastwood, we gathered a group of family friends and our healthy appetites to give it a try.
As a video game novice, playing Breath of the Wild is my first immersive experience into the world of Zelda, and boy, what an experience it has been. Before the release of this game on the new Nintendo Switch (aka “Zelda machine”), my partner has been talking his head off about this game.

Jase turned the big 3-0 recently and as he’s usually the one spoiling me, I knew I had to pull out all the stops for his birthday.

That’s where we were headed for the birthday weekend extravaganza.
The Source utilises seasonal local produce to create fresh and delicate flavours and textures in every dish. In fact, the menu is so seasonal that it changes daily, at the whim of executive chef Vince Trim and his team of culinary masters.
Urban Bites has been around for a long time and I remember visiting the cafe back in my uni days. Back then I was the eager, fresh-faced student hoping to find a cosy place in between lectures for a piccolo to go with my course reading. Fast forward a few years later, returning to this somewhat iconic Newtown hub for a casual business meeting, it summoned a wave of nostalgia.
Every time I visit Ryo’s in Crows Nest, there is a queue outside the bright orange double-doors. I suppose that is the way life is now in Sydney, if you want something authentic and delicious, you just have to join the queue. A quick glance up and down the line and you can see all the ramenous patients experiencing withdrawal symptoms, restless and eager to get their fix.
This holiday season, we decided to pack up our bags and appetite and travel to sunny (ha!) Melbourne for a change of scenery. We were there only for a few days and although the weather wasn’t especially kind to us, we still made the best of our time eating, drinking and frolicking amongst some of the best Melbourne have to offer. Here are some of the best snaps we’ve captured during our visit!
