I was really looking forward to trying Suzuya because Jen told me that their salad is as big as a fishbowl and their set menus are as generous as Sushi Suma‘s. Really?
Who is John Montagu? According to Wikipedia, he was a British statesman in the eighteenth century, better known as the fourth Earl of Sandwich who supposedly invented sandwich!
If that was true, I am sure Earl Montagu would be very pleased with what John Montagu in Woolloomooloo has created under his name.
Clipper Cafe is a gem in Glebe that reminds me of a sunny afternoon in Santorini. It is somewhere that I wouldn’t mind spending the whole afternoon in while daydreaming my next holiday.
Doyles at Watson Bay is a big name in the Sydney seafood restaurant scene. I had heard good things about the fish’n’chips here and I know that the fish’n’chips at Doyles Fishermans Wharf are on the “To-Do List” of many travelers visiting Sydney. Some even dubbed Doyles as having the best fish’n’chips in Sydney.
Unfortunately, we were left rather disappointed. Did we come on a bad day? Maybe. Are we coming back? No.
I love celebrating birthdays, but finding the perfect venue is not an easy task. I was looking for a place that is classy yet cozy; not too expensive but has good food; can fit at least 10 people but does not have strict booking policies, easy to get to but not somewhere that I have been to before…
Just when I had given up on the idea of throwing a party this year, I stumbled upon The Greens. It ticked all the boxes!
I would have never stepped foot in O Organic Produce Cafe if it wasn’t for Julie. For starters, I am skeptical about the supposed benefits of organic food. Also, the first word the pops up into my head when I see the word “organic” is “expensive”. And more importantly, the shopfront and signage of O Organic Produce Cafe fades compared with the other hipster and flashy cafes on Crown Street.
After today, I kicked myself for not discovering this place sooner.
Grumpy Barista is a little quaint and charming cafe in Petersham that made its mark on Instargam with their guilt-inducing cronuts. I came for the cronuts, I was wow-ed….but not in a way that I had hoped. Nevertheless, I wouldn’t hesitate to return just for the avocado on toast drizzled with their exquisite zesty house-made dressing.
Panzerotti Bar is officially my favourite Italian place in town. The service is efficient, the staffs are friendly and the kitchen cooks up one hell of a scrumptious pasta storm.
I have to admit, I never had cravings for pies or sausage rolls until I had them at Central Baking Depot. I thank this unassuming bakery in Sydney CBD for making me (finally) understand why meat pies are considered the “national dish” in Australia.
The best part? They have soup in winter!
Komachi is officially my favourite place for udon.
