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 …

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 …

Overtime at Oratnek

The folks at Oratnek have invited my friend Erina to check out Overtime at Oratnek, their latest foray into dining after dark. Myself, Jeff and James do what we do best and ride on the coattails of Erina’s instafame and join as her +3s. Oratnek …

Cafe Rumah, Surry Hills

The JB Special $6, Yuzu drink $6 I’ve pretty much resigned to the fact that I will never get my real deal Malaysian food in Sydney. Admittedly I’ve stopped trying so if there is a new joint that professes to provide authenticity, it’s likely I …

A Bit of Melbourne 2015

If my insane birthday week didn’t already show it, I do believe birthday celebrations always call for a little something special. That’s why tonight we find ourselves checking out the next newest restaurant on colourful Kensington Street for my dining partner’s birthday. Kensington Street Social …

Cho Cho San, Potts Point

Part three of my birthday week eating series is Cho Cho San (see part two here). I haven’t been back since Elaine’s 22nd birthday  in 2013 where dinner was pleasant but not an experience worth having again. This was in fairly early days for the …

Cafe Paci

My friend Jason is a really good photographer. I like to tell him that as often as possible because he gets really shy about it. He in turn tells me he enjoys my writing which embarrasses me as well. Ironic it is then that this …

Izakaya MEW

Murakami Bingo by Grant Snider isn’t a real game, although I suppose you could play it at a binge-reading slumber party if that’s your thing (it’s my thing). It’s a visual depiction of the most common Murakami-esque plot devices that litter throughout most of his novels, …

Devon Cafe Brunch 2015

So I eat at Devon a lot. My mom jokes that the frequency in which I go combined with how adamant I am about bringing visitors here must mean I have a share in the business. But quite frankly, I know I’m not the only …
