Wish Bone, Enmore

I’ll always have a soft spot for Enmore. Night Owl used to live there prior to us moving in together, and it served her well during her bartending gig at The Gretz, which was the sister bar to the infamous Hartsyard up the street towards Newtown Station. I still remember the absolute chaos that occurred when Gregory Llewellyn and Naomi Hart…

Gojima

It took me a while to get there, but I finally did it. Back when we had been going to Sunday yoga at Crunch Fitness in the city, Night Owl and I did a regular brunch thing, until we joined a gym closer to our home hub in Neutral Bay. Sunday brunches sadly became a thing…

Salmon Burger

It’s no secret that I love a good burger. A Friday late afternoon about a fortnight ago, I was back late at the office finishing up after a client appointment and a mate of mine messaged me asking how things were. It had been one of those sweltering Sydney summer days and the cool change…

Locomotion Coffee

I remember last year when I used to be so set on visiting a new inner-city/inner-west cafe every weekend. I’m the type of person who can only prise their eyes open blearily after a half-decent attempt at breakfast, and so getting dressed and sitting on a train into the city with very dark sunglasses on…

Mary’s Newtown

I’m a huge fan of Studio Ghibli movies. The details in the watercolour backgrounds behind the animated characters, the amazing soundtracks crafted by the artist Joe Hisaishi, the utter nonsensical, whimsical plots of some of the movie plot lines and a certain quirkiness to many of the characters that you can’t find in those from…

Alfie & Hetty

We are all too well aware of the dilemma that happens when you have too much choice. Too many clothes – yet you have nothing to wear. A fridge full of fresh ingredients, snacks and ready-prepared meals – yet you have nothing to eat. This is pretty much my dilemma when it comes to Sydney’s…

Revolver

If I had a dollar every time someone recommended that I visit a cafe in the Inner West, my piggy bank would have combusted with a high-pitched squeal a very long time ago. Sure, I have caught myself drooling over the menus of these Inner West cafes more than once, however living all the way…

Chur Burger

Sometimes it’s the most spontaneous plans that turn out the best. I was at the launch of a venue late August and was thrilled to bump into a few food bloggers who I know of via social media but had never met in-person before. With the number of events for bloggers happening across Sydney every…

Jones the Grocer

One of my good foodie friends Kulinary Adventures of Kath had at last finished her stint at university – five years of law over and dusted and we decided to celebrate appropriately with a nice foodie visit to Westfield’s Jones the Grocer. Jones the Grocer is on the top floor, the food level, back where Quarter Twenty-One…

Grill’d (Chatswood)

I get cravings, just like any other normal person. While most people who read my blog and follow my food photos will think that my cravings will be for sweets, my dominant craving is not for sweets – but for red meat. I love nothing more than a good burger, and luckily over the past…

The ‘I Hate Mondays’ Burger

This recipe is one that I’ve had for some years now, an adaptation of Bill Granger’s recipe for Spaghetti with Spicy Meatballs. I’ve modified the meatball recipe and used it for making my own meatballs, and on the odd occasion, into hamburger patties for some of the most ah-mazing hamburgers you will ever taste. It…
