I Love Pho

*Thanks Mike from Ompty for treating us to this visit to I Love Pho I Love Pho, doesn’t everyone?! I Love Pho in Crows Nest loves pho so much, they were named just that. The restaurant accommodates both an indoor dining and al fresco seating, and given the chill of the day and the nature…

*La Sen

*Thanks Ompty for sending us out to La Sen! La Sen is Vietnamese for lotus leaf, and the perfect name for a little family owned restaurant in the vibrant Randwick Spot. The restaurant itself is narrow and reminds me of the street eateries in Asia with its bright colours and that familiar aroma of incense…

*Oiden, Mappen, Derauma

*Special thanks to Washoku Lovers for inviting me to this event and to Kayla for being such a lovely host. Special mentions to @forknchopsticks and @kimmiebites, it was lovely to meet you.  Located centrally within the city is a small little food haven of Japanese cuisine.

*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…

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…

Spotlight Sunday: Laphroaig Pedro Ximenez (PX) Sherry Cask

I love duty free. I love whisky. I share these enjoyments almost as much as my dad. The two of us have a little travel tradition –  each time one of us travels overseas, we buy the other a bottle of whisky. So when my eyes came across Laphroaig’s Travel Exclusive PX Cask at Sydney…

*Mowbray Eatery Launch

*Thank you Tina at Sydney PR, and the team at Mowbray Eatery for inviting me to the launch evening of their newly rebranded restaurant.  Stain Cafe, located in Lane Cove, was known for their farm-to-table menu style. Now rebranded as Mowbray Eatery and with the same values for fresh produce the original Stain Café is…

Erskine Villa

On this particular occasion we attended Erskine Villa as paying diners, however we have previously attended the restaurant as invited guests.  Erskineville was formerly owned by a gentleman named “George Erskine” and was best known for serving the community. Back then, the suburb and community was called Erskine Villa. With a focused mindset, Erskine Villa embodies the…

*Creperie Suzette

*Thank you to the Food Critics & Bloggers Australia Community and Creperie Suzette for inviting me to try this menu. Thank you also to Jamie ( @xoxo.msjamie ) for your company during this tasting.   Just like a crepe, Creperie Suzette is a little bundle of France as soon as you walk in the door. The atmosphere is…

Brewquet – May 11 2016

Flowers, chocolate and sometimes even a plushy friend are often delivered to the office to say ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’, or ‘Sorry, I messed up’ or simply ‘Just because’. In this case, I was the lucky recipient of a ‘Happy birthday’ office surprise. It wasn’t a bouquet of flowers though. Instead, I received a Brewquet! Brewquets are…
