Sydney Cebu Lechon, Newtown

Sydney Cebu Lechon originally started as a catering lechon business supplying their famed charcoal roasted suckling pigs to the pork lovers of Sydney. The Mahusay family has been operating since 1991 and a few years ago opened a restaurant in Newtown. We st...

Legend Hot Pot, Burwood

I love hot pot, specifically the communal dining aspect of everyone focussed on a pot of soup bubbling away at the centre. Carefully swirling thin slices of meat into the soup until cooked to your liking, fishing for forgotten tofu and smothering your morsels...

Strawberry Crumb Bars

You know how most recipe posts there’s always some super long background story on how the baked goods came into being? This isn’t one of them. Hurray! These strawberry crumb bars are the perfect slice to bring into work or a party, they’re not sickeningl...

Soul Dining, Surry Hills

Have you ever been to a restaurant and been so blown away by everything that you’ve immediately made a booking to return before the meal is even over? This is what happened when Angela and I dined at Soul Dining in Surry Hills for my birthday and we imm...

Bush, Redfern

BUSH HAS OPENED IN REDFERN! You might’ve had their roo pies or cheeseburgers at popups around Sydney at The Meat Emporium or seen Grant Lawn around at Young Henry’s but he’s finally set up permanent digs in the ‘fern! They’re locat...

Poly, Surry Hills

Poly in Surry Hills is part of the Paramount Hotel with a much more casual wine bar vibe than sister restaurant Ester but is equally as delicious. I’ve been a few times- once for the amazing Scarlet prawn dish and the light comte donut but both times I...

Banh Xeo Bar, Rosebery

I’ve been to Banh Xeo Bar in The Cannery in Rosebery a few times now, their bun bo hue is awesome and I love their bone marrow so for my bday lunch with the fam I decided it was time for the ½ Berkshire pig head ($79.50)! The pig head takes about 30-40min...

Koku Culture Cafe, Ashfield

You know when you read a menu and know that you will love it even though you haven’t seen any pics or heard from anyone who’s been? That’s how I felt when Good Living reported that Kenji Okuda (head chef Lotus Barangaroo) would be opening...

Hong Kong Bing Sutt, Burwood

So I’ve always been really skeeved out by spam and all its fake bouncy luncheon meat cousins. I maybe ate it once or twice as a kid but never grew up eating it, never had a spam musubi or a spam sandwich for an arvo snack. So when Viv orders the Pineapp...

Bella Brutta, Newtown

Bella Brutta in Newtown is Sydney’s latest hotspot for wood fired pizza, a joint venture with LP’s Quality Meats’ Luke Powell and Porteno’s Elvis Abrahanowicz and Joseph Valor. The restaurant is surprisingly long, the bar lines the wall from the e...

Totti’s, Bondi

Totti’s is the latest offering from Merivale with Mike Eggert (Mr Liquor’s Dirty Italian Disco, Pinbone) and Khan Danis (Rockpool) at the helm in the kitchen. It’s taken our group quite a while to finally make it out Bondi way and after weeks o...

Champeaux Restaurant, Paris

One incredibly warm day while out exploring Paris, the boy and I stumbled into Champeaux Restaurant, part of the Alan Ducasse empire. We’d been checking out the Les Halles area and required sustenance and I just happened to recognise this restaurant...

Tamworth changes its name

Let’s face it, there are few things Aussies enjoy more than Tim Tams — they’re an Australian icon, our favourite treat and frankly something we’re all very proud of in a nation that’s otherwise lacking in its own cuisine....

Bistro Guillaume, Sydney

Have you ever chosen to dine at a restaurant solely because of one item you’ve seen on the menu? That’s what happened when we spotted the Twice baked souffle with roquefort sauce ($21) and decided to visit Bistro Guillaume. I friggen love chee...

Sizzler Toast (Super Easy)

I have extremely detailed memories of eating with my family growing up. Summers of eating KFC in the sweltering heat, dunking each scrap of chicken skin into the gravy and clutching steaming hot corn cobs. Weekends at Istana, freezing in their arctic restauran...

Firedoor, Surry Hills

I love fire. There’s something hypnotic watching flames, twisting and dancing to their own tune. Growing up out west where bushfires was the norm, I grew to love the smoky scent in the air, the headiness of the slightly burnt char scent on satay sticks...

Here’s to 2019!

2018. It has been another whirlwind of a year! I started a new job (again), there was a Kygo concert, the complete and utter obsession with Terrace House, and an epic food trip to Hong Kong where I ate my body weight in bbq goose, egg tarts and buttery pineapp...

Bistecca, Sydney

MEEEEEEAT! Sydney’s hottest restaurant is Bistecca, featuring Florence’s famous T-bone steak and is located off Dalley St and around the corner from the horror that is the light rail construction on George St. Make your way down a slightly shady...
