  • When I first heard about Ramen Champion, I was excited. I thought it might be similar to Singapore’s Ultimate Ramen Champion, which I really enjoyed for the variety and sheer amazingness of the ramen available. Unfortunately this was not to be and here’s why.

  • With not much planned before our evening flight back to Brisbane, the SO and I were going to wander around the city for a bit of last minute shopping and needed some breakfast to set the foundation of the day. We ended up at Jones the Grocer in Westfield Sydney for a caffeine hit (meh) and were one of the first through the day at opening.

  • I have been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to drop in at Samson and Sophie Café and Deli in Teneriffe. Every time we've passed them by, there is always a crowd of eagerly yet very patient customers waiting for available tables.

  • Just off La Trobe Terrace on Collingwood St, the modern Middle Eastern influenced café Shouk is housed in a warm blue-grey corner shop that has seen a modern extension out the back, thus providing guests seated at the back of the café an almost bird’s eye picturesque view of the little suburbia towards Jubilee Terrace.

  • Unlike Sisco across the road, Spring Hill Deli is quieter and looks a little older, but there is an unmistakable calm when you have little wizened patrons on canes who park themselves at their curb side tables to start their day. That soothing sense that one should take in the simple pleasure of sipping an aromatic cup of hot coffee while catching up on the morning news saturates the air at Spring Hill Deli – a welcome change to the sterility of hospitals and clinics.

  • Speaking of charm, Bean on Dean has a bit of a rustic a-little-left-of-centre theme going with its re-purposed vintage metal bar stools, recycled paint drums and industrial spool furnishings. Perhaps the owners love DIY-ing, if the wall montage of workshop tools were any indication.

  • Despite his general lack of organisation skills, the SO had secretly made reservations at The Attic restaurant in Malt Dining on Market Street. It's been on my list to-visit, so I was really pleased to have finally made it there. However, when I had asked the SO if he had brought one of our proper cameras, he eyed me woefully and replied: "This is a birthday dinner, not a food blogging dinner."

    It’s my birthday and I’ll take photos of my food if I want to
