Oui Oui Paris!

The last time I visited Paris (also the only time) was 7 years ago. It had a wonderful charm and was best admired at your own leisurely pace. But Paris…

Grappa Ristorante e Bar, Leichhardt

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.

678 Korean BBQ

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.

The Legend of Zelda – Breath of the Wild

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. And it wasn’t just him, the whole gaming world was raving with excited anticipation. So, naturally, I became curious.

The Source Restaurant, MONA Hobart

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.

Review

Urban Bites, Newtown

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.

Ryo’s Ramen, Crows Nest

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.

Review

Ogalo, Crows Nest

Everyone knows the five main food groups: Vegetables, Fruit, Grain, Meat, Dairy and Portuguese Style Peri-Peri Chicken Burgers. So here’s the deal, Ogalo makes the best Peri-Peri style chicken burgers available in Sydney. Yes, I know, it’s a bold claim but please hear me out.

Review

Le Saigon, St Leonards

I love Pho, I’d eat Pho every day. Jin doesn’t like Pho, which means I don’t eat Pho as much as I’d like. After Jin dragged me to Melbourne (sorry Sydney is better) I knew I’d get to redeem some love coupons and eat out what I wanted to eat. Now normally we would go to the “other” Vietnamese joint around the corner but like most Asian eateries around this time of year, they were shut.

Four Frogs Crêperie, Gateway

I remember when I first visited France six years ago. The memories that stick out vividly are morning rituals of boulangerie-hopping and trying to eat my weight in pastries. The lazy afternoons drowned in wine, cheese and the sound of accordions along the Seine. The one thing I regretted not having a lot of was crepes. Luckily for me, four Frenchmen has decided to bring the authentic French crepes and galettes to Sydney! Hurrah!
