Left of Field

Out of the way from the busy Rhodes shopping centre but only around the corner sits a little cafe full of character called Left of Field. The cafe has a clean, minimalistic vibe with tall ceilings and pops of nature. We’re greeted by a friendly face who seated us at a table suitable for the pram and tiny guest…

*Sir Chapel – Tramsheds

*Thank you Danny (QueueTix) and FCBA for organizing such a lovely event. Special commendation to Sir Chapel for hosting the evening.  Since it opened, I’ve heard all about Tramsheds; a self contained food court, being the next best eatery in town. I wasn’t sure what to expect as the photos I’ve seen looked like a…

*Lot 1

*Thank you Tina from Lot 1 and the Food Critics and Bloggers Australia for inviting me to this lunch tasting. Newly opened in the city and feeding a lot of curiosity from passers by is the dual Lot 1 Restaurant and Lot 1 Espresso Bar. It can be confusing as both sites are right next…

Yayoi

Yayoi has been a restaurant that has been in and out of my radar all year. I walk past it all the time in Galleries since it’s opened and I’ve looked at the menu so many times.  Finally, I got around to trying it on a chilly evening in the city after much contemplation. The little restaurant’s location…

Coast 175

As one of the most well known long standing cafes in Ettalong, Coast has been a local favourite for those who live around the Peninsula.  As one of the first cafes that have truly started the big cafe movement in the Central Coast, it’s no wonder it’s always buzzing.  The cafe is filled with natural light and…

*Kialla Purefoods x Al Taglio

* Thank you Amanda from Missy Mischief PR for inviting me to this wonderful event. Thank you Al Taglio and Kialla for hosting a fantastic luncheon.  On a beautifully sunny day, Kialla and Al Taglio teamed up to present the best of the locally produced grain of Australia. Kialla is proud to show the end-to-end process of their product, from the farm to…

Frugii

On recent trip to Canberra, I couldn’t help but notice how the active food scene is thriving in this small state. Everywhere you go there is a fantastic cafe, restaurant or take-away place just around the corner. I only managed to visit a handful of places, but no doubt I’ll be back to try more.  One of…

Ormeggio

The word ‘spit’ is an unnecessary visualization accompanied with an air of disgust, so when I hear a restaurant’s location ‘at the Spit’, the first thought that comes to mind isn’t fine dining.  Low and behold, Ormeggio sits just there in one of the most inconvenient locations to a non-local, before the moving temperamental bridge with not…
