Antonio Sabia's Puntino Trattoria, Woolloomooloo

I think I may have found a a hidden gem within Woolloomooloo! You would think that there is barely anything or in fact nothing at all at the quiet end of Crown Street but ha, think again my friend. There is a small Italian restaurant towards the end of Crown Street but you pretty much feel like you are back at home as soon as you walk in.

Tokonama, Surry Hills

I have always been quite eager to check out Tokonama but never had the $$$ for it until I saw it on Spreets one day. Normally, I am a bit iffy with buying things from those discount voucher companies but hello!! it was Tokonama. Clearly there was no hesitation there as I slapped the transaction onto my credit card.

Flour and Stone, Woolloomooloo

So for those that may have read my numerous jealous tweets would know that I have been dying to try out Flour and Stone for yonks. Like seriously, yonks. I was salivating at every Instagram upload of their lamingtons, tarts, doughnuts, blah blah blah. I am not the biggest fan of lamingtons but I've heard (even from people who usually dislike lamingtons) have said that it is the best they have ever tasted. So what was the verdict?

Est, Sydney and some other recent food lovin'

Herrrroooo everyone! Yes, I am back! What's been happening peeps? Being away from facebook, twitter, instagram (@food_religion) and of course blogging, wasn't as weird as I had thought it might of been but coming back onto all these social network sites was slightly bizarre at first. Even the feeling of tweeting was so foreign.

p.s. Just a warning that this is a LONG post!

Anywhoo with all this MIA happening, I only recently found out with thanks to a friend of mine that Est. is currently doing a 2 course special for $65 (lunch or dinner, Monday to Friday). Offers ends next Friday, 10 August.
