Brunch @ La Buvette in Potts Point

During my weekend in Sydney, I was strolling through Potts Point in the morning when I noticed a rather busy cafe on Challis Street with outdoor diners enjoying the sunshine. La Buvette is also rated quite highly on Urbanspoon so I decided to pop in for breakfast the following morning. We scored a table outside […] Read more…

Dinner @ Cafe Sopra Sydney

I was in Sydney over the long weekend for the International Fleet Review. A few of us stayed in Potts Point which has quite a few funky cafes and restaurants. We asked reception for an idea of some good restaurants within walking distance to our hotel. Cafe Sopra at Fratelli Fresh (just above Woolworths) was […] Read more…

Dessert train @ Adriano Zumbo Patissier

I’d been wanting to try out Adriano Zumbo’s patisserie for nearly 2 years, but since no one else I know likes desserts and sweets, there was never an opportunity to go. I was determined to try out the dessert train and patisserie at the Star during my trip to Sydney over the long weekend. My […] Read more…

Brunch @ the Grounds of Alexandria Sydney

Warning: this post is photo heavy. When my friends and I arrived at the Grounds of Alexandria at 10.30am on a Sunday morning, it was jam packed with people. We were told that the wait for a table would be over an hour. After hearing and reading good reviews of this place, we were willing […] Read more…

Ippudo Sydney

I don’t get to go to Sydney often (even though its less than a 3hr drive from Canberra), but when I do, I make sure I try out a different restaurant/cafe. This time, I decided to head to Ippudo for some ramen. Some friends had mentioned this was one of the best places to eat […] Read more…

I did a bit of research on restaurants and read about Din Tai Fung– advertised as serving the world’s tastiest dumplings.  Din Tai Fung originated in Tai Pei and now has a chain of restaurants all over the world. […] Read more…

Dinner @ Quay Restaurant Sydney

After watching Masterchef, I put Peter Gilmore’s Quay restaurant in Sydney on my foodie bucket list. Going on to their website, I found out group bookings needed to be made at least 6 months in advance! So I decided to organise (very early) my next birthday dinner with some friends.  Fast-forward 6 months and it […] Read more…

Gelato @ N2 Extreme Gelato Sydney

During a weekend in Sydney, I headed to N2 Extreme Gelato to try their gelato made right in front of you with liquid nitrogen. The store had a laboratory feel to it with glass beakers filled with ingredients displayed everywhere. The flavours available are written up on the blackboard. Lots of weird and interesting flavours. […] Read more…

Ice cream cake @ Gelato Messina Darlinghurst

I read about Gelato Messina for the first time on Urbanspoon as one of the best ranked restaurants/cafes in Sydney. To my delighted surprise, it is an ice cream shop specialising in awesome looking miniature ice cream cakes. I am really grateful to my partner (a non-foodie) who puts up with my innate cravings and […] Read more…
