  • 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.

  • When I was invited to visit Queensland's Sirromet Winery, I was hesitant. What can a non-wino (and definitely no wine expert) say about their award winning wines? I laid out my concerns to their marketing manager and she very kindly invited me to visit one of their 3 dining venues, Tuscan Terrace. So of course I said yes.

  • While the SO enjoyed the fresh selection of seafood in the chirashi don set at Reef Seafood and Sushi, he lamented that it still didn’t match up to our favourite chirashi don on the Gold Coast by way of variety or aesthetic arrangement. On those fronts, we weren't wowed.

  • Cirque have extend their offering to include dinner two nights a week – Thursday and Friday. And making our dining choices at Cirque was a simple affair. Their offerings were a variety of tapas-style nibbles and main dishes, which are specials: a meat, a seafood/fish and a vegetarian option.

  • Peng You's menu surprisingly reminds me a lot of my mother's cooking, especially the crispy marinated chicken, Steamed baby barramundi and slow cooked pork trotter. It's simple food, where even the garnish is meant to be eaten and it doesn't have too much fuss about it.
