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…

Brunch @ The Knox Made in Watson

The Knox Made in Watson is a suburban cafe at the Watson shops which opened up a few months ago, replacing Satis. The team love the suburb of Watson and use as much local produce and supplies as possible, hence the ‘Made in Watson’ motto. Rounding the corner of the shops, I walked towards a […] Read more…

New menu @ Walt and Burley

A friend had her birthday lunch at Walt and Burley on the Kingston Foreshore. It had been a while since I’d dined here and I noticed a brand new menu. Since I wanted dessert, I decided to order the pulled confit duck salad ($28) as my main. The salad was really just rocket. A LOT […] Read more…

8 course tasting menu @ Biota Dining

A friend’s wedding was held near Bowral NSW which provided an opportunity to check out Biota Dining. Some friends and I went there for lunch. Biota offers either a 5 course ($125) or 8 course ($175) tasting menu which is changed seasonally. We decided it was perfectly reasonable to indulge and chose the 8 course […] Read more…

Just Feed Me Dave @ Pistachio Dining

Some friends and I took advantage of a Livingsocial deal at Pistachio Dining where we received the ‘Just Feed Me Dave’ degustation for about $30 per person. It is usually about $65 per person so this was a real bargain. The last time I was at Pistachio was in early 2014 and I remembered liking […] Read more…

High Tea @ Parlour Wine Room

Parlour Wine Room has introduced high tea on weekends for $45 per person. High tea is available on Saturday (morning and afternoon sessions) and Sunday (11am session only). A glass of sparkling wine is included in the price as well as tea and coffee. Since I don’t drink, I asked if I could swap the […] 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…

Lunch @ Ellacure

(I dined as a guest of Ellacure, however all opinions are my own.) I was invited to dine at Ellacure to provide an honest blogger review of the restaurant. Ellacure is part of 2617 Group that also own Soju Girl and Versatile. My last visit was back in 2013 so I was happy to try […] Read more…
