  • Sydney seemed full of hole-in-the-wall coffee joints for those on the run, but we had trouble finding a breakfast place that coaxed you to linger. Delisse on Clarance Street was the first we encountered and I fell in love with their pastry display.

  • When you think of Bondi Beach, the picture in your mind's eye might be of the white sand, crashing surf, suntanned bodies, buff lifesavers and fish and chips. In fact, chowing down on piping hot chips and crispy fish fillets goes hand in hand with sand between your toes down here. Yet we found ourselves slurping away at Handmade Noodle & Dumpling Kitchen in Bondi.

  • Exploring Sydney can be a challenge - there's so much to do, see and more importantly, eat. We had to start a long day of adventure right, so stumbled into the city and found breakfast at Medusa Greek Meze in Sydney.

  • I cyberstalk Kylie Kwong’s Instagram and I’m not afraid to admit it, because when you’re a foodie, you CHOOSE to torture yourself by surrounding yourself with other food lovers who overshare their gastronomy exploits. There isn’t a waking moment when you’re not filled with food envy.

  • The SO and I do not like dining in hotels, but the skies finally opened on Sunday evening and we were stuck in our hotel room. Neither of us was motivated to brave the weather, so instead we headed to the Intermezzo Italian Restaurant at the Westin Sydney lobby for dinner.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • It took a year, but when the opportunity came, I called a week prior to make dinner reservations at Billy Kwong over the long weekend. Billy Kwong served very Asian cuisine that was instantly familiar to us, yet not because of the use of Australian native ingredients that provided such an interesting and enjoyable dining experience.
