Ryo’s Ramen, Crows Nest

Winter is officially here in Sydney. If you are out there braving the cold, clutching tight to your coats and scarves, you are not alone 😉  Hang on tight and think of something warm, “nourishing” and squiggly. Yes, I am talking about the ever popular hole-in-the-wall ramen house up North. Ryo’s ramen has become a … Continue reading

Orto Trading Co, Surry Hills

Orto Trading Co originates from the brains of Anne Cooper, Louise Hunt and Chris Low from Redfern’s popular brunch spot Baffi&Mo. The name is inviting all by itself, “Orto” means “vegetable garden” in Italian. A vegetable garden nestled in Surry Hills? We’re sold! The glass bistro is warm and cozy, with sprouting herbs in recycled metal … Continue reading

Porteno, Surry Hills

One of Foodyphile just turned a year older and thus we decided to venture to Porteno after hearing rave reviews about it. Another establishment by the marvellous Bodega team (Ben Milgate and Elvis Abrahanowicz!) and 8 hour wood fired suckling pigs, how could we not go? It took us a while to find the place but … Continue reading

Crispy Gow Gee

What is it about Gow Gee that impresses people? Is it the outer beauty that captures people’s eyes? Or is it because of how it tastes? For me, Gow Gee is comfort food. I grew up eating this, my nuclear family would make this for Sunday lunch and the filling changes all the time. Ranging … Continue reading

Black Star Pastry, Newtown

The name Black Star Pastry by Christopher Thé is no stranger to the sweet tooth out there! For me, Black Star is synonymous for a dose of happiness, sugar coma and chocolate love. Chocolate and caramel tart is the perfect concoction and marriage! Add fleur de sel on top, and voila you get a chocolate overdose … Continue reading

Being a true breakfast lover, I have unabashedly and shamelessly exhausted every list of brunch places possible. I am also particular discerning when it comes to breakfast. I have a few favorites to which I would … Continue reading

Chocolate Cheese Crepe with Grand Marnier Creme Anglaise

I have been into crepes for a while now, ever since I was still living in Indonesia, good 15 years ago. Fellow Indonesians, remember D’crepes? That used to be the only crepe joint in Indonesia, it was a hit, a mix of savory and sweet tantalizing crepes. But once I moved to Perth, my crepe … Continue reading

District Dining, Surry Hills

Mum is in town and I decided to have a nice lunch with her. 🙂 The new kid in the block is the establishment District Dining by Warren Turnbull, owner of two-hatted chef Assiette. The atmosphere is a lot more relaxed with windows, fresh lilies and wooden high chairs. The best seat in the house by … Continue reading

Five Ways, Paddington

Got to say the truth, I have no food entries for now 😦 But, got to keep the post going right? 😀 So, today’s post is a coverage of an area which I love. An area that fulfills my need either to have a coffee by my self or just to take some photographs. This … Continue reading

Creme Spaghettini ala Kani

During my last trip back to Japan, it was a trip with a purpose. A purpose to expand the knowledge of cooking and eating. My sister took me to this Japanese Pasta restaurant located in Shibuya. Restaurant is quaint, underground and would become unnoticeable if you’re a tourist. The first word that came out of … Continue reading
