  • My face and body often react when I consume alcohol, turning me into a red blotchy monster with a headache and inevitable grumpiness to match. The SO and I think I may be sensitive to the preservatives in beers and wines. With that said, there are a couple of wines I will and can happily have, and one of those is Samuel's Gorge from McClaren Vale. When we learnt Samuel's Gorge was holding a five course dinner at Malt Dining with matching wines (duh!) for $140 each, we knew this would be a grand treat.

  • Most days of the week, I am chained to my desk and drowning in work. Even when I'm not, our office doesn't have a lunch room, so lunch is usually a sad affair at my own desk. So it's a rare treat when I get to lunch with a girlfriend somewhere in town and thanks to an invitation to try Four Points by Sheraton Brisbane's Wrapped Cafe, I caught up with an ex-colleague who I adore and miss terribly for lunch.

  • Several years ago, my girlfriend Sassystrawberry dragged us to their Mandarin Gallery outlet in Singapore and we were blown away! Al dente ramen noodles with great flavourful broth - no wonder Sassystrawberry was so adamant we lunch there, but I never expected nor realised Ippudo has made it down under. And certainly not an outlet in Sydney’s Westfield.
