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

Lotus – Potts Point, Restaurant Review

Crispy King Prawns, Chipotle Mayonnaise

With all the celebrations and excitement of bringing in the New Year, as well as the Christmas festivities before that, there is one thing that brings you back down to Earth. Quickly. And that’s your first week back at work. So after what has been the busiest last few months of my working life, it was really nice to finish off the … Continue Reading

Nick’s Seafood – Darling Harbour, Restaurant Review

Blue Eye Cod Fillet

It had been a while since I had last visited Nick’s Seafood Restaurant in Darling Harbour. A full year in fact. Unlike Jordan’s Seafood Restaurant across the water, which has since closed down, Nick’s Seafood Restaurant is still just as busy as ever. Walking into restaurant you are very quickly engulfed by the buzz and chatter of a house full … Continue Reading

Australian Youth Hotel – Glebe, Pub Review

Australian Youth Hotel - Spanner Crab

Located on the outskirts of the Sydney CBD, The Australian Youth Hotel sits in the vibrant suburb of Glebe. An area rich with some of Sydney’s best cafes, restaurants and pubs. Having frequented this pub a number of times, and loving their food on almost every occasion, I thought it was time I actually wrote a review of it. Now I … 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

Mecca Espresso – Ultimo, Cafe Review

Mecca Espresso - Coffee

I first heard of Mecca Espresso in Sydney Morning Herald’s inaugural Good Cafe Guide 2011, where it was crowned Cafe of the Year! What surprised me about this result was the fact that I had walked past this cafe numerous times without giving it a second thought. From the outside it looks like any other cafe, bar, or bookshop even. What … Continue Reading

Danks Street Depot – Waterloo, Cafe Review

Dank Street Depot - Waterloo

Danks Street Depot was one of the first cafe’s to open it’s doors in the now buzzing gastronomic neighbourhood of Waterloo. Just on Danks Street alone you will find the likes of The French House as well as Cafe Sopra. To succeed alongside such stiff competition, Danks Street Depot needs to be on top of its game, which seemed to … Continue Reading

Clipper Cafe – Glebe, Restaurant Review

Clipper Cafe - Fruit Juices

Clipper Cafe, located in the bustling restaurant precinct on Glebe Point Rd, is an absolute gem of a cafe. You could be excused for walking straight passed it, if not for the loud chatter of a cafe full of happy patrons. Aside from the food, part of charm of Clipper Cafe is it’s white, terrace style, almost European facade that is both … Continue Reading

Snag Stand, Westfield – Sydney, Restaurant Review

Snag Stand - Greek Snag

The Snag Stand is another brilliant new addition to the recently renovated Westfield food court on Pitt Street Mall in Sydney. I absolutely love the decor of this take away! With a myriad of fancy typography written across large black wooden panels, you can’t help but start selecting your next meal as you walk past. It also helps that the … Continue Reading

Water Bar at BLUE – Woolloomooloo, Bar Review

Water Bar at Blue Woolloomooloo - Drinks

While most people head to noisy bars and pubs on a Friday night after work, we were looking for a quiet place for the two of us, where could enjoy some drinks and light finger food. Normally it’s very difficult to find a place that serves alcohol, yet remains on the quiet side. Add to that the requirements of being … Continue Reading

Bungalow 8, Sydney Bar Review

Bungalow 8

Okay, so Bungalow 8 isn’t a restaurant and it’s definitely not on top of my list of places to go to for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Buuuuuut, Bungalow 8 is located at the always buzzing King St Wharf and they serve some decent food so why not :) I had been here many times before, however, this time I thought … Continue Reading

Park Hyatt Harbour Kitchen & Bar – Sydney, Restaurant Review

Park Hyatt Harbour Kitchen & Bar

Park Hyatt’s Harbour Kitchen & Bar is situated in The Rocks overlooking the absolutely stunning Circular Quay, with sweeping views of the Opera House and the Sydney CBD. On a bright sunny day, there is perhaps no other place in Sydney where you would rather be. A premier location like this almost always has a premium fine dining experience associated … Continue Reading

Ribs and Rump – North Ryde, Restaurant Review

Ribs n Rump

Image sourced from Ribs n Rump, Hoo Haa! There is something really manly about eating ribs. It’s a mans opportunity to go back to the caveman days, where they huddled around the campfire picking at bits of Sabertooth Tiger that they’ve just hunted down with their bare hands. Fortunately, these days the only hunting you do is going through … Continue Reading
