Bo.lan, Bangkok, Thailand

May 25, 2013

Our latest Thailand adventure needed to include dinner at Bo.lan. Lex, Em and I had attempted to dine at Bo.lan in 2009. Although we hadn’t made a booking, it was pouring with rain and our taxi driver had no idea where he was going, we decided to make our way to Bo.lan anyway. Little did […]

nahm, Bangkok, Thailand

May 24, 2013

What was the first thing I did when Dylan’s brother announced he and his fiancé were getting married in Thailand? I emailed nahm to make a reservation for dinner. In fact I contacted them so far in advance they wouldn’t take the booking. I would just have to wait until reservations opened 12 weeks out. […]

With no real plan as to where we wanted to eat after attending KOFFIA at the Dendy I made a quick call to Azuma at Chiefly to see if there were any tables available. Of course being a Saturday night we were out of luck so we decided to wander down to The Rocks and […]

Thai Express, Sydney (Closed)

April 8, 2011

Finishing a hectic week at work late on a Friday night and not having had any lunch (that’s how hectic it was – I don’t ever miss a meal!) meant I was exhausted and completed ravished. Wanting to go straight to bed when I got home, Dylan and I decided to grab a quick bite […]

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 […]

Rambutan, Darlinghurst (Closed)

February 10, 2011

Having ventured to Rambutan a few times before, when we saw a Spreets deal offering value for a mere dollars it was a no-brainer. We booked quite a way in advance as the last few times we had been lucky to get any standing room downstairs let alone a table. On this occasion we arrived […]

Chat Thai

Chat Thai, Haymarket

January 14, 2011

Dylan and I both love Thai and although we’ve been to a lot of Sydney’s Thai restaurants, for some reason we had never ventured down to Chat Thai. So when old work colleagues suggested Chat Thai to catch up over a feed and a few Singh beers I was thrilled. Having heard good things about […]
