MINAMISHIMA

One of the best sushi experiences I’ve ever had was at a 100 yen sushi train in Japan, down the road from the hotel we stayed at in the Shibuya. It wasn’t so much that the sushi was wildly inventive or unique – in fact it was far from it, as what each pair of nigiri amounted to was a slice of fish, draped over [...]
Chicken Korma ($14.9)/Kadai Goat ($14.9)/Garlic Naan ($3.5ea)/Steamed Rice ($2.95ea)

CHILLI INDIA

Earlier this week, I walked into our tea room for morning tea, only to be assaulted with the aroma of someone heating up garlic naan in the sandwich press. The force of the food craving that hit me was unbelievable; I assume it’s roughly equal to the level of desire some women feel when they think about bearing children. I may usually be notoriously indecisive [...]

TAHINI

After my sensational meal at Miznon last week, I’ve been having ongoing cravings for Middle Eastern food. Unfortunately I also had self-imposed blogging obligations, so instead of just heading back to Miznon to have some more of their amazing pita pockets, I decided to check out Tahini, a self-titled Lebanese diner in the CBD that Chris’ co-workers frequent. As you’d expect of a lot of [...]
Ocean Trout Belly and Avocado ($15)/Pita with a Bone ($19)

MIZNON

As much as I love George Calombaris (at least up until the whole scandal with him underpaying his staff), I had to admit that celebrity chefs are not exactly my cup of tea. Although I’m sure it’s not always the case, often it feels as if the only chefs that end up as celebrities are the ones who spend more time selling their brand, rather [...]
Chirashi Sushi ($14.5)

KANEDA

Before I start the review, let me lead with this: Kaneda came as a recommendation from K, a beloved foodie in crime. Although I’ve always been vaguely interested in the 4/5 Zomato rating it has, I was completely turned off by the fact that it was a Japanese restaurant with a Chinese menu. So if it weren’t for K, this place would’ve been left it [...]
O’Connor’s Grain Fed Rump Cap ($47, 300g)

SAN TELMO

I had a terrible lapse in judgement a few years back, when I decided to have my first proper steak at Rockpool Bar and Grill. Unsurprisingly, that meal sort of ruined all future steaks for me; although I’ve had some decent cuts of meat here and there since, it just doesn’t compare to the dry-aged, 9+ marble score David Blackmore wagyu served up at Rockpool. [...]
