Harry's, Bondi Beach


It can be hard to find a cafe that revamps the way you view breakfast. Harry's Bondi manages to do just that, while maintaining that surf-side coastal cool. 

Pasta Party at The Italian Bowl, Newtown



I don't think there is anything quite like the humble bowl of pasta in the world of comfort food. There's probably not a single person I know who would turn down a bowl of pasta. It has such universal appeal, and can be cooked in so many different ways that it's hard not to say no.

Bennelong, Circular Quay



Bennelong is one of those iconic Sydney restaurants on every avid diner's bucket list. Whether it be the allure of eating under the Opera House sails, those stunning harbour views, or the much talked about, produce-driven menu, there is something about Bennelong that makes it a truly unique and sublime place to dine.

A look into a Chinese Wedding Banquet at Rhodes Phoenix


Chinese wedding banquets are big affairs. They are a quintessential part of the traditional Chinese wedding, and often whole restaurants will be booked out for the special occasion. Family and friends will gather after the wedding ceremony to share an impressive feast can consist of more than ten different courses.

Isaac Toast: a South Korean sandwich specialty


Travelling gives you a licence to be adventurous with your daily diet. Breakfast, in particular, is a meal that instantly becomes so exciting to eat in foreign countries. 

The breakfasts we ate on our trip to South Korea late last year ranged from cheap gimbap (Korean-style sushi) and samgak gimbap (triangular rice balls) from the local 7 Eleven, to warming dakjuk (rice porridge) and baked goods from the popular Korean bakery chains Paris Baguette and Tour Les Jours. One of the most memorable breakfasts we had was from the uniquely Korean breakfast-cum-sandwich chain, Isaac Toast. I enjoyed it so much that I thought it would be appropriate to dedicate a whole post to this marvelous bread creation.

Chiswick, Woollahra


I must admit that I am often envious of those who are able to grow their own fruit and veg in their gardens at home. We have tried on multiple occasions to start our own mini veggie patch, with very little luck at all. There was a brief summer or two when our backyard was home to a forest of cherry tomatoes (grown by accident), however the only vegetable-like plant we've got now is a small bunch of basil that was bought from the supermarket and recently planted in a small garden pot. 

Chiswick, on the other hand, is home to the vegetable garden of everyone's dreams.
