The Town Mouse

The Town Mouse, Carlton

October 31, 2014

There are all kinds of friends in life and when you are into food like we are some of the best are your dining buddies; you go to every new place with them, get terribly drunk at your regular haunts with them and suggest places you MUST eat at, around town and interstate, when not […]

The Stinking Bishops

The Stinking Bishops, Newtown

June 15, 2014

I can still recall the first time I walked into the fromagerie at Simon Johnson in Pyrmont. I was working as an office manager in an advertising agency and was sent to buy cheese for Friday afternoon snacks. It was the first time I’d set foot in a cheese room. I had no idea what […]

At the last minute we decided to rent a car for our stay in Hobart which meant a road trip to Bruny Island was in order. Bruny Island is a small island off the south-east coast of Tasmania. It comprises North Bruny and South Bruny which are connected by a narrow isthmus. 100 kilometres in […]

Tavern 42 Degrees South

Tavern 42 Degrees South, Hobart

March 29, 2013

We finally made it to Hobart. Late last year Mr O suggested we fly to Hobart for the Easter long weekend and surprisingly we all agreed within minutes. Flights were booked on New Year’s Eve between a few caprioska and negroni pre-drinks before our dinner at Bishop Sessa. We instantly knew there was an epic […]

Bondi Hardware

Bondi Hardware, Bondi Beach

March 13, 2013

We rarely venture over to Bondi but an invitation to Bondi Hardware’s first birthday lured us in. Half of my colleagues are Bondi locals and a few have mentioned Bondi Hardware on a number of occasions. Share plates and a funky vibe, sounds like fun to me! Although my family now lives North West of […]

GRAIN, Sydney

September 20, 2012

Spring is in the air and the party season vibe is starting to amp up. I just love this time of the year. It’s also the season for new life – there seems to be openings left, right and centre. Monday 10th September saw the opening of GRAIN, a bespoke bar at Four Seasons Hotel, […]

Helm Bar

Helm Bar, Darling Harbour

June 23, 2012

When hidden away from the sun, in the shadow of buildings, the city did its best to pull the warmth right out of our bodies. But the moment we made it down to Darling Harbour the sun was beaming down with great fervour and it appeared that Sydney had put on a fantastic winter’s day. […]

Bar H

Bar H, Surry Hills

September 9, 2011

Another day, another Spreets deal. We’d heard good things about Bar H and wanted to go there for ages but with this one coupon we were quite undecided as the value just didn’t seem to be there… sure for dinner for two sounded good, but we couldn’t see how it was worth 0. In the […]

Eau De Vie

Eau De Vie, Darlinghurst

September 2, 2011

I’m not really sure how we decided to make a trip to Eau De Vie, but I guess that really doesn’t matter because we’ve wanted to go for quite some time and trying to remember the finer details after spending a few hours at The Argyle seems all too difficult. Nestled in a nice leafy […]
