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…

Lakehouse, Daylesford VIC

IMGP8200

A few months ago, Alex and I celebrated five years together. It’s crazy how quickly half a decade has gone by- there has been plenty of incredible food along the ride! To celebrate, we headed out to Daylesford, which is a beautiful spa town about an hour and a half outside of Melbourne. While Daylesford is…

Meatball & Wine Bar, Melbourne CBD

meatballs

Meatball, located in the ever-trendy Flinders Lane, was a random choice for us one day whilst out shopping in the city. Since then we have been back twice, and always leave stuffed and pleased with our meals. Cocktails at Meatball are delicious and don’t skimp on the alcohol, and the Italian-focused wine list partners well…

fermentAsian, Tanunda

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…

While doing some general cleanup and organization on my computer this week, I came across a few residual blog posts from 2013 reviewing restaurants that are too good not to share. So I’m going to do a few #throwbackthursday posts in the coming weeks! The first of the bunch is M’s Pub, an Omaha classic….

Well friends, I have some big news! I am typing this post from Melbourne- that’s right, Alex and I are finally reunited! I moved over here three days ago (hence the lack of posts- turns out moving your entire life across the world in two suitcases is fairly hectic) and am loving it so far….

Mana Food Bar, Wicker Park

I spent this passed weekend gallivanting around Chicago with one of my best friends, Josh. Chicago is my family’s go-to weekend vacation spot, but we rarely stray from Michigan Avenue, so I had a great time exploring Wicker Park this time around! We had dinner on Friday night at Mana Food Bar, a popular vegetarian…

Salt 88, Omaha

Last weekend a group of girlfriends and I went to Salt 88, a much-hyped and discussed new sister restaurant to Hiro 88, for a farewell brunch. We opted to sit on their lovely outdoor patio, studded with fans and hip blue plastic chairs and looking out onto the neighboring golf course. Salt 88 has all-day…

Poolside @ the Ace Hotel, Palm Springs

My friends and I spent spring break lounging by the pool at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs, eating and drinking. A few hikes were involved, but the week mostly revolved around the pool and all the wondrous things it has to offer. We ordered food poolside one day, and were so happy with everything…

eeeeek, over two weeks without a post! Apologies, apologies, apologies- our only excuse is that we are finally reunited and have been a bit too busy for blogging! But here is a post on a restaurant I’ve been waiting to eat at for ages- Bäco Mercat. Bäco’s reputation precedes it, as not many restaurants are…
