Eating in Sydney – Restaurant & Cafe Reviews

Gumshara Ramen – Sydney CBD, Japanese Restaurant Review

Gumshara Ramen

So if you talk to any one of my friends, they’ll tell you that I have a strange fascination with all things Italian. Mostly food, though it does extend beyond that! Now I’ve always told them that I must have been Italian in my past life, but going by the sheer number of Japanese restaurants I’ve frequented, I’m beginning to think that … Continue Reading

Ippudo – Sydney CBD, Japanese Restaurant Review

Ippudo

Funny thing happened on my trip to Japan last year. No matter what the night entailed – be it dinners and deserts, izakaya, karaoke while eating honey chocolate ice cream loafs, whatever – I always found myself finishing the night off with a nice bowl of ramen from one of the many Ichiran restaurants. It’s like a Japanese version of the … Continue Reading

Sushi Samurai – Pyrmont, Japanese Restaurant Review

Sushi Samurai

It’s been such a long time since my last blog post (sorry)! I’ve just become so busy with work and life lately that I’m finding it really difficult to continue with my periodic restaurant reviews. So instead of abandoning it altogether – like I have the last several months – I’ve decided to at least post the photos of my eating endeavours, and … Continue Reading

Cantina Mobil Bar & Garage – Glebe, Mexican Restaurant Review

Cantina Mobil Bar & Garage

I first stumbled onto Cantina Mobil at their Darlinghurst store – where a big sign on the window notified me of their Glebe store opening. Since I had previously tried Max Mex and Guzman y Gomez, I was very keen to see how Cantina Mobil’s burritos fared against theirs – especially when the new store had opened so close to … Continue Reading

Kingsleys Australian Steakhouse – Sydney CBD, Restaurant Review

Kingsleys Australian Steakhouse

Situated well back from King Street in Sydney’s CBD, walking into Kingsleys Australian Steakhouse feels like a step back in time. It’s not just the restaurant’s interior that has an olden day charm, but leading up to the entrance, you are greeted by traditional sandstone walls that would have been all the norm a couple of hundred years ago. In fact, … Continue Reading

Mejico – Sydney CDB, Mexican Restaurant Review

20131014-191657.jpg

So I finally decided to try Mejico after walking past it on numerous occasions. Prior to this, I hadn’t frequented an actual Mexican restaurant for almost a decade – Wow! It’s not that I don’t like Mexican cuisine, but I guess I hadn’t seen too many around (sans Max Mex and Guzman y Gomez). Being situated next door to Jamie’s … Continue Reading

Yume Sushi – Gladesville, Japanese Restaurant Review

yume-sushi-gladesville-3397

The origins of Yume Sushi Gladesville – nestled amongst a variety of restaurants along Victoria Road – goes as far back as 2006 when the head chef and owner, Hyun (Daniel) Cha, opened his first Japanese Restaurant in the Imperial Arcade in Sydney’s CBD. Since then, Daniel has opened and ran the very popular Yume Sushi in Drummoyne, followed by Yume Sushi … Continue Reading

There are certain moments in life then most men absolutely treasure. These include things like fishing, cooking steak on a BBQ, cracking opening a cold beer while sitting in front of the television and digging in a giant, juicy, delicious schnitzel. That’s where Essen Restaurant & Beer Cafe comes in! Cabbage Salad (complimentary) Every meal at Essen starts with a … Continue Reading

MoVida Sydney – Surry Hills, Spanish Restaurant Review

movida-eating-in-sydney-2852b

Life is full of lessons – I can’t believe I just opened a foodie blog post with that line – and one of the lessons I’ve been taught recently by a work colleague, is that the suburb of Surry Hill aint so bad. In fact, it is actually freaking great! After avoiding the suburb for far too long, I’ve only recently … Continue Reading

Lucio Pizzeria – Darlinghurst, Italian Restaurant Review

Lucio Pizzeria - Darlinghurst

Earlier this year I had the wonderful opportunity to spend a month in Europe and enjoy it’s many culinary delights. That included tasting the most amazing Margherita pizza ever, at Pizzeria Da Michele in Napoli, Italy. Since then I’ve been on the hunt for something similar here in Sydney. Now comparing local Sydney pizza, to what is quite possibly the best pizza … Continue Reading
