Recent Dining

"Have you ever been to Nomad?", a colleague asked me the other day. What followed was a passionate conversation, as we extolled the virtues of the restaurant in Surry Hills, which I've been to a few times, though not recently. This review, takes you back to when my friends Sandra and Robert were visiting, and... Continue Reading →

Bei Jing Dumpling

A couple of weeks ago I was sitting at the bus-stop near the corner of Cleveland and Crown Streets (Surry Hills) and a Chinese guy came up to me, asking for directions. He showed me a piece of paper with the address "432 Cleveland Street" written on it. As I don't speak Chinese and his... Continue Reading →

The New BBQ King

"OMG BBQ King is closing down", a colleague explained to me a year or so ago. He was genuinely concerned at the loss of a "Sydney institution" Located near the corner of Sussex and Goulburn streets, BBQ was the place where you could go with a large group or by yourself to feast on plates...

Finally Porteño

"How long before you move?", I asked the waiter tonight. "About five weeks, or thereabouts", he told me. Once the home of Greek restaurant, Dimitri's (with associated plate breaking), the building on Cleveland Street will be looking for a new life, as Porteño is moving to another Surry Hills location. In contrast to Dimitri's, which... Continue Reading →

Darlinghurst Dinner

It started with a cough on Tuesday. A persistent cough. I was in a series of quite important meetings, and apologised profusely to my colleagues about my cough. Later in the afternoon, I wandered home. And almost as soon as I arrived home I had a "Hillary Moment", as I've since joked about. Within minutes... Continue Reading →

Red Chilli

Having previously written a few times about Sydney's Red Chilli restaurant, I was super excited to discover one in Canberra too. Over a bottle of wine and great conversation, a colleague/friend and I enjoyed a most excellent dinner there. Ham, eggplant, fish. All brilliant. Highly recommended (AGAIN).

Mekong Restaurant

You know how it is. Sometime you go out for dinner, and you remember every detail of the food. The waiter goes into intricate detail about what's on offer, where it came from, how it's been prepared, and you savour every moment. Truly memorable. Other times, you go out for dinner in a largeish group... Continue Reading →

Christmas in July in Surry Hills

If you're a Sydney-sider and you're told you're going to "Christmas in July at The Carrington", you immediately think of The Carrington Hotel in The Blue Mountains. Though my memory is a little sketchy, I remember once doing that. Indeed, it's the first thing you'll find when you Google search. But my neighbourhood of Surry... Continue Reading →

Food and Views

The last few weeks have been "super busy" with work-related trips to Brisbane, Perth and Hobart. Having spent so much time "on the road", I've pretty much lost my normal "travel bug". There'll be more travel to come, but in the meantime, it's been really nice to spend the last week just going to work... Continue Reading →

New Sydney Hotel, Hobart

As I sat, sipping on a glass of wine at The Brick Factory, I received an instant message from Damien, asking where I was planning to have dinner tonight . "Spooky", I replied, "I was just going through your email thinking exactly the same thing". He and Kristin love their food and wine, are big fans... Continue Reading →
