Breakfast / Chinese / Desserts / Dumplings / Italian / Pasta

Simon and I celebrated our 4 years this weekend and coincidentally, we ate at 4 restaurants in the one day. Our plan of attack this year was to try a lot of new smaller places, rather than just one fancy (expensive) place. It turned out to be a great day of food and the sun came out to play too! First stop was breakfast at Harry’s @ Bondi. Beautiful cafe with friendly service and so […]

Ridiculously good-looking soft serves

Desserts

Sometimes, food looks better than it tastes. This isn’t the case with the soft serves from Aqua S. They opened last month in Regent Place and they make really beautiful soft serves. They taste so good too. I tried the sea salt flavour (standard) and the lemon tea (temporary flavour). I had both with all the toppings they had on offer: fairy floss, toasted marshmallow, caramel popcorn and pop rocks. I really really liked the […]

Seafood

My family and I love going to the Sydney Fish Market. So much choice, so much good seafood. On Australia Day, the weather was pretty crappy so we couldn’t do anything outdoorsy. So we decided to eat.

This is a pretty delayed post about Thanksgiving last year. Thanksgiving doesn’t exist in Australia but I’ve always wanted to experience a Thanksgiving feast, simply because the food looks so good… and because of pumpkin pie. The Bourbon, an American style pub / restaurant, hosted a Thanksgiving event last year and Tim and I made sure we went. It was a 2 course lunch that included turkey stuffed with cornbread, potatoes, greens and pumpkin pie mousse […]

Japanese

S and I saw a picture of the teriyaki beef rib dish on Instagram a few weeks ago and we haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. This month, a special occasion came up and we decided that it was the perfect time to try Izakaya Fujiyama. We try not to order too much, but we always do. It’s just the way it is. We both really enjoyed the dishes from Izakaya, some more […]

Markets / Photo Diary

Thailand was a fun food adventure. It was exciting because you never know which food will give you food poisoning. LOL jokes. Damnoen Floating Market had pretty good food to offer. The pork noodle soup was deece and the mango sticky rice was amaze. Both just $2 each. The Maeklong Railway Market was a pretty crazy sight. We were there as the train went past and it was so interesting to see how the stalls moved […]
