Rockpool Bar and Grill, Sydney

I have finally step foot on one of Neil Perry's famous restaurants, Rockpool Bar and Grill. The interior of the restaurant was so grand, all their walls and columns were marbled. As soon as you stepped in, the deco of it all would make you stop, pause a little and admire the surroundings and feel that you are about to dine in a mansion.

Lowenbrau Keller, The Rocks

I heart Lowenbrau with a passion for their atmosphere, the food, the booze and the list goes on. The servings are generous, their pork knuckle and pork crackling is to die for, the atmosphere is very lively and having a live band is always a bonus.

Schlachtplatte for two - Sausages, Chicken Schnitzel, Meat Loaf and Roast Pork Belly, Served with Mashed Potatoes, Sauerkraut, Braised Red Cabbage, Bread Dumpling, Bier Gravy Double the Size and a Roasted Pork Knuckle. $73.00

Tony Romas, Sydney

I love my meat and in particular, I love my ribs. Thankfully, Tony Romas is always alway to satisfy my strong cravings. Their signature barbecue glazed sauce and along with their ribs is what most people crave. Put the two together and your stomach will be in for a massive work out. I haven't had ribs for a while so it was indeed very exciting to nibble on the endless amounts of ribs that night. Best thing is that you can use your hands and get all messy.

Chicken and steak combo with corn on the cob and chips - $44.90

Blue Mountains Chocolate Company, Katoomba

By the time you finish lunch at the Swiss Cottage Restaurant, you could pretty much work off your lunch by walking down the road to the Blue Mountains Chocolate Company. Alternatively, there is also the option of driving but you will need to pay attention to the sign because the physical outlook of the cafe can be quite misleading.

Swiss Cottage Restaurant, Katoomba

Swiss Cottage was one the highlight meal of the road trip down to Leura and Katoomba. Nothing beats sitting in a warm cosy restaurant tucked away in the quiet streets of Katoomba on a cold pouring day and having some seriously hearty food.

Leura Garage, Leura

Hello long weekend and with the inspiration from A table for two and Simon Food Favourites, a road trip to Leura was definitely to be. Located approximately one and half hours drive from Sydney, is a suburb filled with seriously good food. My stomach was definitely in for a treat. First stop, Leura Garage.
