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

essen-ultimo-broadway-chicken-jaeger-schnitzel

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

The Italian Bowl – Newtown, Italian Restaurant Review

The Italian Bowl - Newtown

One of the best things about Newtown is that it’s very easy to get lost in the myriad of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. Which is very convenient when your super-lazy mates are running an hour and a half late to an event you’re attending – as was the case on the night. So after browsing a few art stores, … Continue Reading

Restaurant Atelier – Glebe, French Restaurant Review

Restaurant Atelier (4)

Restaurant Atelier is located on the Parramatta Rd end of the incredibly popular Glebe Point Rd in Glebe. This street is an absolute mecca for restaurants and cafes; quite a few of which I have visited in the past. Restaurant Atelier, however, is one that I had walked passed and overlooked on numerous occasions. Perhaps because of it’s very unassuming … Continue Reading

Xanthi – Sydney CBD, Greek Restaurant Review

Xanthi-Westfield-Sydney-1213

Some restaurants you plan to go to and some you just end up at. Xanthi is the latter of the two. Our original plan was to dine at Jamie’s Italian on Pitt Street, but after being informed of the hour and a half long wait, we decided to head elsewhere. Fast forward 15mins and we were navigating the food court … Continue Reading
