Marque, Surry Hills


After a series of strange coincidences involving the random discovery of connections between friends, clients and the chefs at Marque, I just knew it was where I had to take Zen on his birthday. Thankfully...

Monaco F1 Grand Prix Qualifying

In the perspective of the boyfriend, this whole Europe trip has been leading up to our grandstand seats in the Monaco F1 Grand Prix qualifying race. The day finally came yesterday. The highlight for me...

Restaurant 373, North Hobart

Restaurant 373 has closed Restaurant 373 is a relatively new restaurant that works. Local fresh produce, warm furnishings, great casual service, funky appetisers and a fabulous 8 course degustation. We started off with olives, garlic popcorn...
Caliniere Restaurant


Calinere's sophistication is evident upon a glance. The light bulb installation is a modern day chandelier. And the floral wallpaper completes the glamour of such a small restaurant.


I've been waiting for the perfect excuse to spend $185 a head (plus drinks) on Tetsuya's 10 course degustation. And here it was... the first birthday of jenius.com.au, which also coincided with my very own birthday! As the countdown begun, I eagerly read up and drooled over every review online. The week before, I started fantasizing about Tetsuya's signature dish. How it intrigued me... the texture and taste of what lay beneath the crusty konbu (kelp).
Rocket-Restaurant, Chatswood,


Rocket Restaurant is one of those places you always talk about revisiting. They've got a sophisticated menu and a relaxing yet stylish interior. However, there's nothing really much beyond that. The service seems to suit chatty regulars... and to my surprise, the amazing dukkah and olive oil has now been replaced with room temperature bread and butter.
Valentine’s-Day-2007-@-Astral, Star city

a blast from the past… Valentine’s Day 2007 @ Astral

What better place to celebrate Valentine's Day than at the top? Astral is a one-hatter from this year's SMH Good Food Guide. This was something we had booked months in advance. From within a glass elevator, we were greeted with 270 degree views of Sydney Harbour. Oooo... ahhh... the interior is also rather stunning. The furnishings were plush and sophisticated, the chandeliers were rich... and around us, couples in love admired the gleaming city skyscrapers.

J’adore Lounge Bar and Restaurant

Last night, we were here to celebrate Tim's 22nd birthday... well... I was more or less there to take to take group photos for him. LOL. And surprise, surprise... Zen and I ended up indulging ourselves with a scrumptious 3 course meal. J'adore restaurant is all about intimacy. There's the fireplace, slinky booths and candlelit tables... However, with the Tuesday specials (2 for 1 mains), I was surprised to find that at 8pm, it was still relatively empty.
