Bathers’ Pavillion Cafe

” Ohhh that person’s just leaving now. Oh no, someone else has taken it!” Grinding my teeth in frustration, I gave up on finding parking around the main esplanade area and ended up driving up the long hill to find somewhere to leave the car. I would have thought arriving at Balmoral Beach at 10.00…

Bourke Street Bakery

After having a very satisfying brunch at Bills, Girl From the Bus and I consulted my printout from Google Maps and began to slowly walk our way over to our second foodie stop of the day, Bourke Street Bakery. Bourke Street Bakery is located in the very leafy heart of Surry Hills, on the corner of Bourke…

Bill’s (Surry Hills)

‘This hill is really testing my fitness.’ I was too puffed to give a coherent reply, so when at last we reached the top Albion Street, I leaned as nonchalantly as I could against the traffic light (when what I really wanted to do was collapse against it) and after a few breaths, replied ‘At least we’ve…

Carré Noir

There’s been a month delay on this post as I came here right before I caught a flight overseas for my month-long holiday – so I apologise sincerely for the delay! I had been hoping to keep up with my blogging while I was overseas, but my dad owns a Windows ’98 computer and whenever…

Häagen Dazs (Zhongxiao Fuxing,Taipei)

I’m fortunate enough that my parents have an apartment in Taipei close to the Zhongxiao Fuxing shopping district, which is one of the busiest shopping areas in Taipei. It was in my last week that I was in Taipei catching a bus when the bus turned off the main street…and drove past a Häagen Dazs ice…

The Victoria Room Tea Salon

Scones, cakes, sandwiches, tea. I suppose when you think about it, the food at a high tea is essentially quite easy to make for anyone culinary inclined, but it truly is the whole atmosphere of it that really gives it its novelty – the awe at the tier when it’s brought to your table, how…

Cafe Madeleine

As a foodie, you can imagine I read a lot of restaurant reviews. Not necessarily with the intention of visiting, but also just to read about the food trends going around, the state of service nowadays, what is hot and what is not. And now and again I’ll pop by a review of a place…

T2 Tea House Macquarie

With my sensitive disposition towards coffee, over my lifetime I’ve developed a severe addiction to tea. Of any blend, of any flavour. A light, fruity iced sensation in the warmer months, or a hot, fortifying and steaming cuppa when the winter chill bites. With milk or without, I love the variety of different teas that…

Tablespoon Cafe

Brunch is one of those meals where you know that whatever you order off the menu, you can never go wrong. There is the use of classic ingredients: fresh eggs, crispy charred bacon, soft yet crusty aromatic sourdough, crunchy salad leaves of peppery rocket and tender baby spinach, smoky and silky slabs of sunset-pink smoked…

San Churro Chocolateria (Chatswood)

So thanks to watching Heston make potato doughnuts last week, I’ve had a mad craving for Spanish churros all week. Finally had the opportunity to get some while out with Kirsty doing some market research on new laptops… My eyes definitely overestimated my sweet-tooth. I ordered not only churros for one but also a Madrid…

Max Brenners (St Ives)

Happy 22nd Birthday to my gorgeous girlfriend Lara Croft! She was going to be boring and sit at her boyfriend’s home all day to study, but I insisted on taking her out for a treat. As she was around St Ives, I suggested we hit up Max Brenners for a chocolate fix. She had the…
