Cho Cho San, Potts Point

Cho Cho San is the second joint venture of restaurateur Sam Christie and chef Jonathon Barthelmess (the first being The Apollo). Ever since opening in June the interwebs has been filled with smoked duck steamed buns, Petuna ocean trout, fried chicken and udon. With Japanese being one of Dylan and my favourite cuisines we had […]

sushi-e, March Into Merivale 2014, Sydney

April 4, 2014

Japanese is one of my favourite cuisines. I just love the precision that goes into it. While you can definitely recreate many dishes at home I always find that to get the most from Japanese food you need to go to a Japanese restaurant. Lex had been to sushi-e on a number of occasions with […]

UME Restaurant

UME Restaurant, Surry Hills

October 30, 2013

I am a massive fan of Japanese food. The only problem is I find it prohibitively expensive to enjoy on a frequent basis. To tell you the truth if you rewind 10 years Japanese was a cuisine I’d never experienced and sushi was something that made my skin crawl. A lot has changed since then […]

Tokonoma, Surry Hills (Relocated)

January 6, 2011

When a Spreets email came floating along with an offer for Tokonoma it was one we could not refuse. A two for one deal on their $90 Banquet that also included a bottle of White Wine. We arrived and all we needed to do was advise it was the ‘Spreets’ offer, hand over our vouchers […]

Koko at Crown

Koko, Southbank

September 7, 2010

Seeing as though we were staying quite close to the Crown Complex during our Melbourne visit we decided to have a bit of a wander through the Casino and somehow ended up deciding to check Koko out. We arrived without a booking but were lucky enough to get the last free table. The interior by […]
