Vaucluse House Tearooms

I can’t believe its been a month since my last post! Moving last month certainly took a toll on my energy and creativity levels – not to mention my wallet. Prior to starting the nightmare task of packing, my brother-in-law – also a fellow culinary enthusiast – hazarded a guess that I would have more…

Celsius Dessert Bar

Ice cream is a weakness of mine. Delicious, a huge variety of flavours and you’re able to eat a whole lot of it as it simply melts away on your tongue. It’s the reason I would never be able to give up dairy, and the winter months are so much better for enjoying ice cream…

A girlfriend of mine has finally finished her exams, and we decided that a day out combined with good food was in order. She was easy as to where we went, and after realising last week that Ryo’s Noodles in Crows Nest is currently on break, I suggested we hit the city for some retail…
