Lunch special @ Chaki Chaki

Newly opened Chaki Chaki in Braddon offers high end Japanese cuisine from chef, Yujiro Takeda, who brought us Tasuke. I’ve been stalking the website for a few weeks and I must say the website alone is beautiful! Chaki Chaki predominantly offers a $60 or $80 set degustation with a few tapas on the a la […] Read more…

Dinner @ Chez Kimchi

14 types of fried chicken. That’s what Chez Kimchi in Civic offers and more. On one spontaneous Friday night shopping trip into the city, J and I stopped in for dinner at Chez Kimchi. After hearing good reviews from various people, it was time to try it out. The menu has plenty of Korean dishes […] Read more…

First look @ Cinnabar (Kingston Foreshore)

*I was invited to dine as a guest, however all opinions are my own. As mentioned in last year’s post on what’s opening at the Kingston Foreshore, Cinnabar is a new Asian Fusion restaurant. I got a sneak peek at Cinnabar last night and learnt that it focuses on bringing a new modern spin to […] Read more…

Asian fusion @ Soi Noodle Bar

I’d walked past the boarded up space when Soi Noodle Bar was being constructed wondering what it would offer. The signage only stated that it would be Asian Fusion dining and to me that means $$$. Soi Noodle Bar has been open for about a month now and it was about time I went to […] Read more…

Matcha desserts @ Cre Asion (Sydney)

I’ve been wanting to try Cre Asion cafe in the Sydney CBD for a while now after seeing droolworthy photos of its creations on Instagram. Tucked away in a small alley, Cre Asion is tiny with very minimal seating on low stools and tables that don’t even reach your knee. Cre Asion makes bowls of […] Read more…

Dinner @ Thip’s Thai

The restaurant is difficult to find if you don’t know where it is as there is no signage out on the street. It’s actually located upstairs in the Churches Centre […] Read more…

Cheap Chinese @ Orient Kitchen – Chinese Cuisine and BBQ

Orient Kitchen has been open at the Weston Creek shops for about a month now. There are so many restaurants in Weston Creek that I haven’t yet had the opportunity to dine at, but when I saw glazed roasted ducks hanging from the window at Orient Kitchen, I couldn’t resist going in and checking out […] Read more…

Weekend lunch @ The Merchant

One lazy warm weekend, J and I were strolling past the Kingston Foreshore looking for lunch. We ended up at The Merchant CafĂ©, mainly because we knew they made iced coffees and shakes, and we were after something cold to drink. We were lucky enough to grab the last popular outdoor table underneath the shade […] Read more…

Bao and Pao – The Fish Can and Daana @ Westside Acton

So the title sounds like onomatopoeia, but they’re actually food! The Fish Can Thanks to Tales of a Confectionist for putting the word out about the opening of The Fish Can at Westside Acton Park. The Fish Can offers what you’d normally get from a fish and chip shop including salt and pepper squid, calamari […] Read more…

Modern Asian @ XO restaurant

New modern Asian fusion restaurant, XO, has opened at the Narrabundah shops replacing The Artisan. The restaurant is easy to spot with a large artistic mural outside. Taking on the same narrow space as the previous eatery, the inside of XO is surprisingly bright and light. The exposed brick walls have been painted white, there’s […] Read more…
