Añada Bar & Restaurant, Fitzroy


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…

Meatball & Wine Bar, Melbourne CBD


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…

Warung Padi Organic, Ubud (Bali)


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.)…

Terracotta, Ubud (Bali)


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…

Bluebird Espresso, Collingwood


We seem to have lucked out, Bluebird Espresso nestled snugly on Johnston Street about five minutes from our house, who would have thunk it!? Having ventured there twice, Priya and I have given the smallish menu a good go.  The restaurant itself is small, however a comfy outdoor space opens it up and provides some…

British India, Adelaide


Having been invited to enjoy a meal at British India, we were not going to miss the opportunity on our most recent visit to Adelaide.  Entering British India you will notice an eclectic mix of decorations or animals to be exact; taxidermy takes center stage and the eclectic mix continues on the menu.  From sweet…

Claypots Evening Star – South Melbourne Markets


My brother and I, both having plenty of spare time during the day, decided to head down to the South Melbourne Markets for a gander.  After a walk around the markets, which were great, packed with delicious foods and popup stalls and of course eating a couple of their famous Dim Sims, we stumbled across…

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…

Kødbyens Fiskebar – Copenhagen


As you enter the square upon which Fiskebar sits you could be forgiven in thinking you have entered an abandoned warehouse district.  But looking past the crumbling cement and cracked tiles you will see a vibrant community reveling in their hipster surrounds.  Restaurants packed – bustling with activity, dj’s spinning 70’s funk and people of…
