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

Mino Sushi & Sake – Willoughby, Japanese Restaurant Review

Mino - Sashimi

On a freezing Friday night, after wrapping up another crazy-busy week at work, my mates and I crossed the Bridge and headed over to a tiny Japanese restaurant located in the suburb of Willoughby. Mino, which has been around for the while in the suburb of Mosman, has only recently opened up in Willoughby. From the outside, Mino has a … Continue Reading

Eatalia – North Strathfield, Italian Restaurant Review

eatalia-north-strathfield-1233

It’s no secret that I love Italian food. The trinity of great pizza, pasta and coffee is one of life’s great culinary pleasures. At least for me anyway. Which is why I was quite excited to try Eatalia in North Strathfield. Their radio ad described it as an authentic Italian restaurant and on their website, Eatalia is likened to restaurants … Continue Reading

Din Tai Fung World Square – Sydney CBD, Chinese Restaurant Review

Din Tai Fung - Exterior

The name Din Tai Fung is synonymous with dumplings. Why? Because the international restaurant chain is said to make some of the tastiest dumplings in the world. But then again, statements like these are thrown around all the time in the food industry. At the end of the day, what it comes down to is how delicious and enjoyable the meal … Continue Reading

Sushi Hotaru – Sydney CBD, Japanese Restaurant Review

Sushi Hotaru - Sydney CBD

For a few months now, my work colleague had been telling me of this mythical Japanese restaurant, in Sydney’s CBD, where you could get plate after plate of fresh sushi for only $3 each. That’s right, $3 per plate. Bollocks! At first I didn’t believe him, but then he educated me on their unique business model where if you carry … Continue Reading
