IMGP7196

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…

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…

A few weeks ago, while some of our close friends were visiting, we visited Ańada for dinner. We opted to do their Chef’s Tasting menu, which allowed for us to relax and sip sangria while dish after dish arrived at our table. First up were oysters, which were so fresh and paired with just the…

Throwback Thursday is back! This time with another awesome meal from our trip to Bali, however it couldn’t be more different from our other meals because it was MEXICAN!

Raj on Taj is a classic Indian establishment with two locations in Adelaide. Alex and I stopped by after I was struck by a craving for Indian food (these happen often), and were quickly seated by a friendly waitress who was more than happy to chat with us about our holidays. When it came time…

Padi Organic is a beautiful open-air restaurant set amongst the rice paddies outside of Ubud. When we arrived we were promptly seated at an individual little hut, floating over the twinkling lights coming from the rice paddies and restaurant. Once we were comfortable on our cushions (yes, we sat on the ground! It was fabulous.)…

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….

Golden Boy, Adelaide

goldenboy

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…

Taste on Melrose, West Hollywood (plus a promo via Lyft!)

Before coming to LA, one of my biggest worries was how I would get around without my lovely hybrid- I’m still a total mess when it comes to attempting public transportation in this city. As fate would have it, I woke up with an email from Lyft in my inbox, and all of my problems…

tarandroses

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….
