Henry Lee’s, Redfern

Henry Lee’s in Redfern is a stalwart in the Sydney brunch game, despite not having the same social media clout as the usual suspects in the city. We’re here at 11.30 am on a Sunday morning, peak brunch hour (any time that’s dangerously close to …

Alem’s House, Camperdown

My first and only other time dining Ethiopian was several years ago in Footscray, Melbourne. If there was ever a place in Melbourne to have Ethiopian, Footscray with its diverse East African community, is it. I’m not blind to the fact that Australia is still …

A1 Canteen, Chippendale

A collective sigh of relief was exhaled throughout Sydney, as soon as A1 Canteen opened its doors to the public. Has ever a photo of a fried eggplant, provolone and romesco sandwich done the media rounds, the way Clayton Well’s did back in November 2017? …

Yang & Co, Castlecrag

All photos by Sarahlianhan   We’re back at Yang & Co, almost a year later. It is a little far, clocking in just over an hour from where I live via public transport. But on this occasion, we’ve all piled into Jeff’s car, like the …

Gaku Robata Grill, Darlinghurst

Chef Harunobu Inukai has long been part of the dining fabric here in Sydney and in Japan. His accolades include working at Hotel Nikko, InterContinental, Bilson’s and Ampersand in Sydney, and also for Robuchon in Osaka. These days (or the last ten to fifteen years …

Yellow, Potts Point

Like the best of us, I’ve waged my own personal war against vegetables in the past. Some, like me, predominantly during that prepubescent stage where food on the table was declined on the basis of being “weird-looking” (this was brinjal in particular for me). I grew …

Saké, The Rocks

The last time I set foot into Saké, I was still technically in high school. As far as hunting for Japanese food goes in Sydney, it’s not typically a name that comes to mind. But when you’re very nearly about to be handed the worst …

Gogyo, Surry Hills

Sarah, Jeff and I went to Gogyo well over two months ago, so this post is extremely delayed. Our gang of three meet often over food. It’s surprising that we’re able to do this when we each have very different interests and different palates, yet …
