Sushi no Midori, Akasaka

The living in Japan equivalent of making lemonade out of lemons is to treat yourself to sushi. No matter how bad a day or a week you’ve had, plonk a bowl of chirashi or a nigiri selection in front of you and you’ll find your …

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? …

Kikubari, Malaysia

‘Ki’ (気) is defined as ‘mind’ or spirit’ while ‘Kubari’ (配り) means ‘distribution’ or ‘delivery’, the closest translation in English would be the ‘to pay attention to others’. Combined, they birth Kikubari, a heavily nuanced Japanese phrase that’s literally ‘to pay attention to others’ but …

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 …

Bennelong (Cured and Cultured)

I’ve never been particularly drawn to iconic infrastructure. They always seemed a bit much, too much a tourist trap, too much a white elephant, too much ado about nothing. Case in point, I was the only one in our party of six to decide against …

Sanpo, Rosebery

Rosebery isn’t exactly somewhere I would send people in search of a culinary adventure. Which is why our recent trip to Sanpo in that very suburb is a testament to how effective Facebook marketing is. Sanpo ads of their delicious looking uni gunkan maki were populating …

Mama’s Buoi, Surry Hills

I’m told a good Vietnamese meal is scarce to non-existent beyond the realms of Cabramatta. While that statement might be true, this doesn’t deter me from finding as good as it gets in the CBD and inner suburbs. I hazard to say that Vietnamese food …

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 …
