Cafe Ish, Surry Hills

I always heart a decent brunch, especially on a rainy gloomy day. Cafe Ish is an Australian and Japanese cafe that offers organic ingredients in its dishes. It is their signature dish however that attracts so many of their customers so I just had to find out myself what all the hype was about. 

Vege Omelette - $16.50 & Fetta Cheese - $4

Sydney Tower Buffet, Sydney

A fancy buffet in the tallest tower in Sydney, it would definitely have to be the Sydney Tower Buffet up in Centrepoint Tower. Even though when I went up, the weather was fairly gloomy but the view of Sydney was still decent and it made all the people look like the size of ants.

Spanish Terrzas, Sydney

I can just never have enough garlic potatoes, it is like the definition of Spanish in my food vocabulary. Spanish Terrazas served up some seriously good garlic potatoes and paellas because there was so much flavour packed into those dishes.

Seafood Paella for two - $58.00

Grape Garden Peking Restaurant, Willoughby

Never judge a restaurant by its look because you never know what might surprise you. Grape Garden Peking Restaurant might look like a quite restaurant right opposite Willoughby Girl's High School however I was quite blown away at the authenticity of their food. The owner/chef/waiter runs the restaurant with his wife assisting him on the side and if my memory serves me correct he is also the owner of a restaurant in the Lemon Grove food court. 

Peking duck and that was only the start of the ducks

Noseys Boutique Wine

A thank you to Daniela Penno from Pokadot PR for inviting me to take part in the launch of Noseys Boutique Wine, a boutique online wine retailer in Sydney, at the Sol Lounge Bar. The main advantage of being an online retailer is that your wines can be delivered right to your door step, just in time for you to share with your group of friends that same night.

Non Vintage Rose', Tasmania
A thank you to Noseys for the goodie bag to take home
 The website shows nine categories (Bubbly, Fresh, Mellow, Rich, Rosy, Blush, Smooth, Deep and Sweet). 'The wines which are part of each category share the same characteristics i.e. aromatics, big on flavour, sophisticated, good for a sunny afternoon or a perfect match for a certain meal.'

Himalayan Char Grill, Glebe

Are these lamb shanks really that famous? Well they would have to be if SMH, Good Food Guide, Cheap Eats and so crown those shanks as being the 'BEST IN SYDNEY' or 'Finger Licking Good Lamb Shanks'. That is why I had to check them out myself that night.

Mad Mex: Fresh Mexican Grill, Broadway

As you walk along the hustle and bustle of George Street near Railway Square, you are will now be officially passing another Mad Mex. If only that opened up during my uni days, it would have changed my life so much more as I could have said good bye to the continuous dinners of Subway and Sumo Salad.

The opening of MAD MEX in BROADWAY
Mad Mex serves fresh, fast, healthy and most importantly authentic Mexican flavours. 'Mad Mex combines the traditional flavours and spices of Mexico with the health-conscious cuisine of California'.

French Riviera, Haymarket

Ice cream anyone? French Riviera is one of my favourite places to hang, especially with a large group of friends. I don't think I need to say anymore because I will let this picture speak for itself. 

Maxi Tower, 35 scoops - $48

Thainabox, Burwood

Thainabox is a tiny Thai restaurant along Burwood Road amongst all the other pizzeria restaurants. As small as it is however, it seems to be quite popular and did I mention they have gigantic servings?

Lamb Pad Thai - $15.50
