Vietnamese food in Brisbane

I’ve been back from Brisbane for several weeks now but figured I’d do one last post on the food there seeing as I devoted so many of my meals to Brisbane restaurants these past few months.  Brisbane has a very odd Chinatown (eg, neon lit Chinatown sign, very cliche/tacky Asian decor, etc) that is located … Continue reading

Amazing Asian fusion in NYC

At the tail-end of my trip to London I had the opportunity to go to NYC for just a few days to catch up with amazing people and of course eat a lot.  A dear friend of mine once said that I “Ms. Pac-Man” my way through New York, essentially eating everything.  (I have chosen … Continue reading

Delightful culinary variety in London

As I’ve mentioned several times in this blog already, I recently had the opportunity to take a trip to one of my favourite cities in the world, London.  The last time I was there was about two years ago and it was so wonderful not only to be there again but also to realize how … Continue reading

Delicate innovation at Esq

Despite all the work my team was doing in Brisbane a few weeks ago, we did manage to get out to a few nice places, and Esq was one of the best of all.  According to their website they were the most highly awarded restaurant in Brisbane last year, and after eating there, I can … Continue reading

Urban chic at Brisbane’s Public

Seeing as I’ve been traveling to Brisbane for the past six weeks, I thought it only fair to pay a bit of a tribute to Brissie’s restaurant scene in a few posts.  I won’t pretend that I don’t think Brisbane is inferior to Sydney (it’s ok, most cities are), but there are definitely some hidden … Continue reading

Spectacular dining at Sepia

To continue my fine dining tour of Sydney, I went to Sepia just a few weeks after Momofuku.  I barely traveled in June/July which of course meant I could spend on a meal what I would normally spend on a plane ticket.  (Absurd I know, but that is the fine dining scene in Sydney…and many … Continue reading

Epicurean nirvana at Momofuku Seiobo

A few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to be part of a group who had gained a coveted reservation at the rather exclusive and exquisite Momofuku Seiobo, David Chang’s restaurant in Sydney.  I’ve been to his noodle bar and Milk Bar in NYC and absolutely love his rock star chef style of Asian fusion … Continue reading

Casual Italian at Jamie’s

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of going to Jaimie’s Italian with a large group of ladies.  Practically everyone has heard of Jaimie Oliver and as the result of being a celebrity chef, his restaurant in Sydney is literally full to bursting at all hours.  Even though the place has been open for … Continue reading

Sunday feast at Ms. G’s

I’ve kept this blog for a while now and figured it was about time I post about one of my absolute favourite restaurants in Sydney: Ms. G’s.  It’s one of the few restaurants in Sydney that I’ve gone back to again and again, and an automatic recommendation when friends visit.  They have an incredibly innovative … Continue reading

Greek food at the Apollo

I’ve had the good fortune lately of meeting a group of ladies who are massive foodies and we get together in fairly large groups to try out (aka, share every dish on the menu) at various restaurants in Sydney.  Most recently, we checked out The Apollo, a fantastic Greek restaurant in one of Sydney’s trendiest … Continue reading
