The cronut craze has been going on for a while now, but I only just caught up to it recently and had my first bite of this sinful creation at Brewtown Newtown last weekend.
Bourke Street Bakery was the first bakery that I fell in love with.
It was a particularly sunny Saturday afternoon. I felt like going on a lunch date with Mikey, but I also felt like a burger. However, I didn’t want to have just any burger, since it’s a date. That’s when I thought of Chur Burger – the burger shack that replaced the two-hat Assiette that we still hadn’t had the time to try.
Rustic Pearl, another cute little cafe my dear friend, L, introduced me to. It’s right in the middle of one of Sydney’s buzzing brunch capital, Surry Hills.
As I enjoy cooking and do cook quite regularly, I have to admit I get more excited when I see “food that I don’t make myself” on the menu. To me, Rustic Pearl is one of those brunch spots that not only offers the usual eggs-on-toast but also something extra for picky breakfast snobs like myself.
Chat Thai is my favourite Thai restaurant in Sydney. The food here is so good, the average waiting time at dinner hours is 40 minutes.
Mike planned a Hunter Valley day trip for his mom’s birthday, and picked the 1 chef’s hat (in 2014 Regional NSW category) Muse Restaurant for the celebratory luncheon.
Road trip, wine tasting and fine dining, woot!
My friend, A, took me to Yakiniku Kashiwa on a Saturday afternoon for a long overdue catch-up. It was a little place in Crows Nest, near where the Woolworths used to be. Look out for the sign that says “YAKINIKU” (Japanese BBQ).
