Mr Wong, Sydney

Mr Wong is yet another Sydney institute that needs no introduction. The golden child of the Merivale empire, it sits in a back alley near Bridge St, where it famously pumps out modern Cantonese fare with enough of an international slant to be universally appealing. …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Moxhe, Bronte

It’s pretty unfortunate that I never got around to writing about my birthday lunch at Moxhe. Not only are the delicious memories now a blur, I didn’t even take a photo of the daily menu at the time so I can’t put a name to …

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 …

Juan Bowl & Tea, Redfern

There’s something about don. Don being donburi, the Japanese word for rice bowl dishes. It conjures images of comfort food, of dinners in front of the TV with a stolen airplane blanket and someone you love. A bowl is an object capable of being cupped, …

Spring Yunnan, Haymarket

“This is the first non-Cantonese Chinese food I’ve had that has not been terrible” I’m usually against quoting myself for fear of sounding ridiculous but today’s post is important as it celebrates me finally enjoying “traditional” Chinese food. What do I mean by traditional? There …
