FARADAY’S CAGE

Due to the luxury of not having 9-5 work hours, it seems as if K is forever brunching. And ever since I’ve left Melbourne, he’s all but become my brunch guru, and full-time café-correspondent. A café he went to recently, and also liked, is Faraday’s Cage. And seeing as I’ve heard plenty about it even before I left the lovely, rainy, gloomy city of Melbourne, [...]
Kuay Teaw Rua ($6.5, small)

YOK YOR

My sister doesn’t realise how lucky she is, being able to travel around overseas on my parents’ dime. When I was her age, we didn’t go on a whole lot of overseas trips, as my sister was only 5 or so, and that naturally made the logistics rather complicated. But now that I’ve moved out and my sister is 15, the fam-bam is all of [...]
Pork Rib

BOVINE AND SWINE

I make a massive effort to be healthy on a day to day basis. Although I’ll never say no to free cupcakes being handed out on campus, most of my meals are wholesome and balanced enough to make a nutritionist shed a tear. Part of that is because I’m learning of new ways to get sick every day at med school, but mainly I do [...]
Avocado and Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta ($15)

TRIPOD CAFE

On my way to and from uni, there’s a strip of cafes I always walk past. But aside from a quick lunch of Lebanese pizza, I’ve never really stopped to look at them, as I’m usually cutting it fine for whatever tutorial has dragged me out of the house. Of course, it goes without saying that I’ve been curious about these cafes since day one, [...]
Roast Beef ($15)

MIZNON

My love for Miznon needs no introduction. Ever since my very first visit, I have been absolutely smitten with this powerhouse of Israeli street food – a love that’s only grown with (many) subsequent visits. I just can’t get enough of their pillowy pitas, packed full of scrumptious ingredients, and their amazing take on fresh produce – whole head of roasted cauliflower anyone? And let’s [...]
the Smashed Pea, Feta, and Chive Bruschetta ($16) with Poached Egg ($3)

THE WEDGE ESPRESSO

Having completed all of my tertiary education so far either off-campus or at Monash Parkville (a 3-building, pharmacy-only campus in inner Melbourne that’s neither here nor there), I’ve never gotten to have the full uni experience. So you might say that going back to full-time study at Sydney University is a bit of a revelation. And whilst I’m certainly not a fan of walking 15 [...]
