Cuppaflower totoro chiffon cakes

Brunch @ Cuppaflower (Sydney)

My friends and I had brunch at Cuppaflower in Sydney a couple of months ago. I had heard good things about the newish café but I must admit, I was there for the Totoro chiffon cakes! I could see them in the display window in two flavours – matcha and black sesame. There were also […] Read more…

Spice Temple steamed eggplant

Dinner @ Spice Temple Sydney

While visiting Sydney for the weekend, my friends made a dinner reservation at Neil Perry’s Spice Temple. The entrance was a little inconspicuous and we only found it as we noticed the street number displayed on the building. The front door was covered in an LCD sceen playing a loop of curtains unravelling. We pushed […] Read more…

Dinner degustation @ Koi Dessert Bar – Sydney

A few months ago, some Canberra foodies and I did a massive Sydney food weekend. One of our meals was held at Koi Dessert Bar for its set 5 course dinner at $77 per person. The ground floor has a display cabinet filled with an assortment of cakes. These disappeared quickly so I’d recommend buying […] Read more…

Giant dumpling @ Din Tai Fung

When I heard that Din Tai Fung was creating a giant xiao long bao (soup dumpling) for the month of November, I had to make some time to get to Sydney to try one. That day was today. For $8.90 I got a xiao long bao the size of a small bamboo steamer and a […] Read more…

Brunch @ West Juliett

A few months ago, J and I stayed with friends who live in Marrickville, Sydney, and they took us to brunch at a cafe down the road called West Juliett. By the time we go there, around 11am on a Saturday morning, the place was packed and there was already a list at the door […] 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…

Lunch @ Porch and Parlour Bondi

My family recently visited the east coast for the first time. After showing them around Canberra, I took them to Sydney and we went to see the Sculptures by the Sea at Bondi. While in Bondi, I took the opportunity to go to Porch and Parlour for lunch as I’ve had it on my list of […] Read more…

Food weekend in Sydney

This is a short-ish compilation of the food had during a recent trip to Sydney (about 2 months ago). I made a short list of places I wanted to visit after seeing a few photos on Instagram. My partner and I booked tickets to see Les Miserables in Sydney on a Friday night, so I […] Read more…

Discovering Devon on Danks (Sydney)

During my birthday long weekend in Sydney, one of the places on my to eat list was only a 15 minute walk from a friend’s place who we were staying with. I’ve seen droolworthy cronut photos and read reviews about Devon on Danks in Waterloo, a second branch of the original Devon Cafe in Surry […] Read more…

Birthday lunch @ Tetsuya’s

Warning: this post is photo heavy. For my birthday, I booked Tetsuya’s Restaurant in Sydney (about 6 months in advance) for Saturday lunch. Tetsuya’s offers a 10-course degustation for $220 per person (without wine). It’s been on my list of eateries to visit and I couldn’t wait to head to Sydney for an extra long […] Read more…
