  • Since I had heard all manner of good things about The Fishmonger's Wife and I had a hankering for fish, we dropped in one evening to give them a go. But the sour service left enough of bitter aftertaste that we would reconsider making another visit.

  • There has been some excitement in the foodie world, seeing as Minh Le (formerly head chef at Deer Duck Bistro) is at the helm of this new establishment. It is not quite as close as the bustling Gasworks, trendy James Street or neighbourhood Merthyr Village. With the newly opened Escobar just down the street, will The Foraging Quail mark the birth of a new chic dining mini-strip?

  • I don’t talk about Siam Square Thai Restaurant much and haven’t blogged about it, because it’s our local and I selfishly want to keep it to myself. We also often order takeaway and photographing their food in those plastic takeaway containers doesn’t do it any justice.

  • SOFI Spritz is an all natural, all Australian take on the classic Italian spritz. She's made from locally grown Riesling grapes, blood orange, bitters and citrus zest, blended to create a complex, bitter-sweet taste and a crisp, refreshing finish. With no added sugar, she has plenty of sparkling water and a lower alcohol content than most wines (1.3 standard drinks per bottle).

  • SOL Breads is on the right track with their fundraising campaign in the fight against women's gynaecological cancer, an issue that's been close to my heart since I was diagnosed with cervical cancer. SOL Breads will donate 50 cents for every loaf purchased until 1st May 2014 to support Cherish Women's Cancer Foundation and gynaecological cancer research, aiming to raise AUD$75,000.

  • Even though I didn't quite get the breakfast I wanted, we certainly got a very positive service experience from The Burrow  and I really hope to go back to have those Wookie Waffles.

  • That walk took us up Brunswick Street and into Anise, a tiny restaurant squished between Gertie’s and Majo’s. Anise has been around a long time and has built a solid reputation for intimate fine dining. Save one small table right by the door, everyone else gets to sit up at the black bar.

  • PUK Espresso was an unexpected find - I had just attended The Art of Fermentation with Sandor Katz session at Kangaroo Point and was on my way home via the Cityhopper when I stumbled upon this little off-the-beaten-track establishment.

  • It's been too long since we dug down for yum cha and the ones we usually hit up were either too far or it would be too difficult to find parking. Talk about being lazy. Then we remembered that Bamboo Basket had just opened an outlet at Portside in Hamilton, a much more reasonable drive with better chances of scoring a park than its South Brisbane location.

  • What a mess! Summer down under is harsh and there was a lot of brown going on. And the balcony garden has been in desperate need of a massive clean up.
