IMGP9595

Earlier this month we were lucky enough to dine at Cecconi’s on Flinders Lane, a Melbourne institution. Back in the day, Cecconi’s was the go to spot for corporate long lunches and client-wooing dinners, and today it still retains that old school charm, but is decidedly more romantic. When we arrived, we were seated on…

Est., Sydney

IMGP7799

We love visiting Sydney, and always make sure to try a new restaurant while we are up there. Last year we had a lovely long lunch at est., with two of our good friends. The lunch menu at est. is steal relative to the cost of their dinner menu, and you can choose how many…

Awhile back, Alex surprised me with a fancy night out to celebrate completing my first semester of grad school. He didn’t tell me where we were going, and instead led me up a dark alleyway off of Smith Street to a large, yellow door. Inside was a dark restaurant, built around a large bar in…

Top Paddock, Richmond

IMGP7268

Top Paddock holds the kind of brunch notoriety reserved for LA’s top West Hollywood spots- which made it the perfect spot for a reunion with my old LA work manager! When we arrived on a Sunday morning the place was practically bursting at the seams with eager eaters, waiting to be seated. After an extended…

When Rue & Co (the popup eatery on Collins Street featuring Kong, Jimmy Grants and St. Ali) first opened up, I meandered over to Kong for some chicken wings and never looked back. So I was delighted to head over to Kong the full restaurant in Richmond earlier this week, and needless to say, it…

Late last month Alex and I hopped on over to Bali to celebrate the end of our freedom as we know it (this week we both started work and I started grad school). We spent a week enjoying beautiful views, time relaxing and of course, a LOT of delicious food. On one of our three…

If you’re in the mood for a little jaunt to the South Australian countryside or on a wine tour in the Barossa, then pencil in fermentAsian – you could even coincide your trip with the annual Cruise On car show like we did, albeit accidentally. Combining a great wine list, representative of the region, with…

Golden Boy, Adelaide

There is much to be said about a trendy restaurant, filled with 30 somethings, sipping on colourful cocktails and eating inspired food.  And hats off to the creators of Golden Boy for producing an atmospheric, glam space out of a small dark corner of the Botanic.  But for a restaurant to become a mainstay in…
