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.

Chinese New Year – Year of the Rooster

Chinese New Year. What does it mean to celebrate Chinese New Year in Australia? Well, let me start with what it doesn’t mean…

Event Travel

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.

Review

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.

Ryos Ramen
Review

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.

Event Travel

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 Creperie
Event Review

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!

Tramsheds Harold Park
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
Review

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.

Final Fantasy XV
Event Review

Final Fantasy XV – A Food Blogger’s Quest

They say “you eat with your eyes first”. This rings true especially when your inner food blogger comes out as you play Final Fantasy XV, or as I like to call it Final FanTASTY XV. (oh, yes!)

Moody Chef
Review

The Moody Chef, St Leonards

Jin and I have been to The Moody Chef a handful of times, in fact, it’s where we had our first “breakfast date”. There is a lot to like on this massive menu and I’ve yet to be disappointed. I’m going to let the pictures do the talking on this one, I think somebody once said, “a picture is worth a thousand yums”.

LOT.1
Event

LOT.1 Sydney Media Lunch

Today, I was privileged enough to attend a unique event thanks to Food Critics & Bloggers Australia (FCBA) and LOT.1 Sydney – LOT.1’s Summer Menu Tasting. It was a fantastic opportunity for executive chef Adam Swanson and head chef Ricardo Cavuoto to showcase their 2016/2017 summer menu, matching seven signature dishes with Italian wines. But let’s rewind back to the start when we first arrived at this beautiful venue.

Review

The Wooden Whisk, St Leonards

It is one of life’s simple pleasures to sip on strong hot coffee whilst reading the paper. And this is exactly what I got to do for 10 minutes before Chuck Norris made its grand entrance.

Review

Le Pub, Sydney CBD

I’ll be honest, I’m a little tipsy for a Thursday afternoon but it’s all for a good reason. It’s a celebration of the day before Friday and as we all know Friday is the International day of drinking. Almost as good as Saturday, anyway, where was I?

Review

Royal Stacks, Chatswood

Royal Stacks opened up its first burger restaurant in the Melbourne CBD and it wasn’t long before our second store opened up in Brunswick. Our burgers have been carefully thought out and all of our ingredients work together in harmony to create a very satisfying burger experience.

Review

Escarpment Tapas Restaurant, Blackheath

Living and working in Sydney, sometimes you can’t help feel a little bit claustrophobic. So for the weekend, we decided to run away to the beautiful Blue Mountains.
