Four Frogs Creperie

Four Frogs Creperie, Mosman

The last time we were in Melbourne we sussed out the crepe offering at Roule Galette which wasn’t too shabby at all, but I was keen to find a crepiere closer to home to satisfy my crepe cravings. And when in the space of just a few days a handful of people told me about […]

Sweet Belem

Sweet Belem, Petersham

August 31, 2014

I’d always heard Sydney’s best Portuguese tarts could be found at Sweet Belem but I never realised they were located in Petersham. That changed for the better over a feast at The Oxford Tavern. Demolishing a platter of meats and relaxing with a few drinks our friend Lil started telling us a little more about […]

Following on from our weekend away in the Hunter Valley we had two weeks of holidays booked for a Sydney ‘staycation’ and one place we were quite keen to hit was Papi Chulo, partly because we were heading to Oxford Tavern for a taste of what ‘Black Betty’ has to offer a few days later […]

January 27, 2013

It was a cold and dreary day in the middle of summer but it was my thirtieth birthday and nothing could put a dampener on my spirits – not the lack of sleep from being out the night before, the pounding headache or the never-ending rain. Dylan had organised a surprise birthday lunch for me. […]

Italian Food Safari, Sydney

June 4, 2011

I’ve always loved Food Safari with Maeve O’Meara on SBS and was ecstatic to discover Maeve had taken her adventures, experience and wealth of knowledge and turned it all into a wonderful tour company for the public, Gourmet Safaris. I readily bought Mum a Gourmet Safaris gift voucher for Christmas, thinking we would have a […]

Thai Splendid

Thai Splendid, Rouse Hill

March 15, 2011

I absolutely love living in north west Sydney except for two things: the distance from the city and the lack of good cafes, pubs and restaurants. There are not many good dining options in the north west and it frustrates me to no end. The prices tend to be quite high and the quality quite […]
