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.

Gourmet Destination: Hobart

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. I wanted to keep the birthday weekend under wraps so I booked everything in secret until we were literally boarding the flight at the gate. Hobart, Tasmania. That’s where we were headed for the birthday weekend extravaganza.

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.

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.

Gourmet Destination: Melbourne

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!

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!

Review

Butcher and the Farmer, Tramsheds Harold Park

According to its chef Jared Ingersoll, the philosophy is simple: a farm-to-table approach that delivers simple, honest food that honours the produce and where it came from. When the food arrived on the table, that is exactly what I felt too.

Bondi Pizza, Macquarie Centre

The people at Bondi Pizza set their priorities straight when they designed the brief of creating ‘thin pressed’ base pizzas topped with fresh, innovative ingredients and unique sauces. Tonight, with my girlfriends in tow, we explore just how good Bondi Pizza is.
