niku yakiniku daichi

Yakiniku Daichi, Roppongi

It always surprises people when I tell them I have no yakiniku recommendations for Tokyo, or Japan in general, because I’ve hardly ever had yakiniku in my life. Case in point, it’s been seven months since I moved to Tokyo and I’ve only had it …

Saint John Espresso, Glebe

Towards the end of last year, I was introduced to this cafe by an overseas visitor. A mildly embarrassing feat considering I’ve lived a stone’s throw away for the last four years but never thought to pop around for a coffee or more. Saint John …

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 …

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 …

An Umami Disposition, (RŌNIN, Hong Kong)

A visit to RŌNIN is one where both the journey and the destination are almost equally weighted. We were on our way there, yet ended up bidding farewell to our taxi driver somewhere in the middle of Sheung Wan. It was like dropping a pin …

Dinner by Heston, Melbourne

Yesterday was the day I ticked a significant item off the food bucket list. I don’t confess to know or have seen everything there is about Heston but I’ve watched enough Masterchef Australia cameos and day time filler episodes on the Food channel to understand …

The Q on Harris, Ultimo

My everyday routine for the last month has the speed and intensity cranked up high right now. I’ve doubled my fitness routine, am finally getting the hang of my new job, been reconnecting with new and old friends and am trying to put more consistent …

Blanca, Bondi Beach

The best time to go to a new and trending restaurant located by the beach is when there is a 90% chance of severe thunderstorms. Blanca has been all over my Instagram feed, e-newsletters and websites I frequent, it was almost like they were low-key …
