Cuppaflower, Waterloo

You can always tell how badly your friends have screwed up just by observing the size of the bouquets they were purchasing after work. Sure, some were being proactive and buying nice flowers for the Hell of it but few people splash out for $120 rose collections on random Wednesdays. I once saw a buddy of mine splash […]

dutc h smuggler cafe broadway

Dutch Smuggler, Broadway

Shopping centre food is notoriously bad. You either have to settle for fast food that isn’t served very fast, unauthentic Chinese food that you can’t find in China or butter chicken without any butter in it. Look what smuggled into Broadway Shopping Centre whilst everyone was watching the Olympics. I’d like to introduce Dutch Smuggler […]

Skittle Lane, CBD

Have I ever told you guys about the first time I tried to cook? My mother was in the process of preparing dinner and I nominated myself as her sous chef. By that point in time, I had seen enough cooking shows to build up a false sense of confidence in my budding skills as […]

brewristas cafe glebe

Brewristas, Glebe

Little known fact about me: I used to be a barista. I was absolutely terrible. This was before I liked coffee so I had absolutely no idea what “good” coffee was. I must’ve ruined coffee for so many people. In fairness, the beans we used smelt like me before I discovered deodorant so it was hard […]

I like to branch out and visit hidden gems and shed a little spotlight on some of the lesser known eateries that Sydney has to offer. Sure, even the most popular spots could use a second opinion but I rather be the first voice to sing the praises of an establishment I have an affinity […]

Little lost bread: Brioche French toast with strawberries, balsamic and strawberry gastrique, strawberry cheesecake ice cream and arnott's biscuit crumble

Devon on Danks, Waterloo

It’s only been four months since I wrote about Devon Cafe and my morning routine is completely different to the one I described back then. I think the blonde woman who was always running late has been fired. The couple that was once on and off are now completely off. I still see the guy every now […]

Salmones: Scrambled eggs, smoked salmon, asparagus + sourdough

Tapeo, Redfern

I’ve got a massive chip on my shoulder the metaphorical equivalent of three packs of Pringles. I’m not sure when it started but I can think of a number of incidents that contributed to it. Let’s go back to fourth grade for a bit. School photos had just arrived and my teacher was handing them […]

Autolyse, Chippendale

I was without my phone for most of last Saturday. It’s a long story but it involves chronic texting, needless browsing of Instagram, checking to see if anyone read iFat (still nope) and leaving my phone charger at the office. Combine all those factors and I was left with a nice plastic paperweight that I […]

Pumpkin Fritters at Cuckoo Callay, Newtown

Cuckoo Callay, Newtown

I’ve been called a lot of mean things in my life. Rightfully so but still. The most memorable insult  I ever received was the time a girl in my modern history class called me a “sl*t.” Keep in mind that this was before I had even touched a boob so I was extremely confused. There […]

Eggs Blini at Devon Cafe, Surry Hills

Devon Cafe, Surry Hills

My favourite part of my daily routine is the walk from Central station to the office. Every day I see the same faces during my route. The blonde woman who’s always late, the Asian couple in constant relationship flux (they walk on opposite sides of the path if they’ve fought the night before and walk […]
