Dinner @ Billy Kwong Sydney

During a weekend stay in Sydney, I got to visit Kylie Kwong’s Surry Hills restaurant Billy Kwong with some friends. The restaurant takes 6pm or 8pm bookings, and those in the 6pm slot need to be out by 8pm. The restaurant rang us earlier in the day to confirm our booking and were advised that […] Read more…

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…

Dumplings @ Din Tai Fung Sydney

I was heading to Sydney for the day with a friend to see the show Wicked. 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…
