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

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

Restaurant 16 – Neutral Bay, Italian Restaurant Review

Restaurant 16 Neutral Bay Panfried Scallops

I worked in Neutral Bay back in the day so I used to know the area quite well. But boy has it changed over the past 6 years. There are only a handful of shops that I recognise from back then. One theme has held true over the years, though, and that’s the abundance of restaurants and cafe’s adorning Military … Continue Reading

Malacca Straits – Ultimo, Malaysian Restaurant Review

malacca-straits-hainanese-chicken-rice

In the words of Natalie Tran… Hi! I know it’s been a while since I last posted a review, but in my defence, I was away on holidays for a month. So I thought why not get back on track by posting a quick short review of a restaurant I’ve visited a number of times, but never took the time … Continue Reading

Sushi Rio – Sydney CBD, Japanese Restaurant Review

Sushi Rio - Tuna Nigiri

Sushi Rio is located on the southern end of Sussex Street in the Sydney CBD. Positioned right on the corner at Liverpool Street, the restaurant is adorned with large glass window panes and prominent ‘SUSHI RIO’ signage sitting behind them. The fittings are a beautiful mix of dark granite, deep blacks, brushed aluminium, combined with a striking large chandelier that makes … Continue Reading

Outback Steakhouse – North Strathfield, Restaurant Review

Outback Steakhouse - Alice Springs Chicken

When it comes to Aussie steakhouses, there are plenty to choose from; Outback Steakhouse, Ribs n Rump, Hog’s Breath, Hurricanes, and those are just the popular ones. My very first experience at a steakhouse was at Outback Steakhouse in Parramatta. I remember being blown away by the ridiculously large portions of steaks, ribs, chicken and even chips. Since then I … Continue Reading

Crinitis – Darling Harbour, Italian Restaurant Review

Crinitis Darling Harbour - Linguine Frank Sinatra

Ah Crinitis… Situated in the Harbourside Shopping Centre in Darling Harbour, this is an absolute gem of a restaurant! Overlooking the beautiful Sydney CBD skyline, expect to be fed to the brink here with delicious Italian food. Although a little on the pricey side, the servings here are definitely more than generous! What is really astounding, and somewhat daunting at … Continue Reading
