Hue’s Style Noodle Soup ($12.8)

VINA VEGAN

I really love meat, but I also really love veggies. In fact, I love both so much that the thought of going vegan is almost as horrifying as being told that I have to be exclusively carnivorous from here on. But there are definitely days where I feel like one more than the other, and there are no points for guessing what I was in [...]
Ontama Wagyu Beef ($10.9, regular)

OIDEN BOWL

Do you prefer rice or noodles? Regardless of your answer, boy do I have something for you. Because if you’re like me and can’t decide, head on over to Skyview Shopping Plaza, and you’ll find Mappen Noodle Restaurant and Oiden Bowl, sister restaurants sitting side by side, ready for whatever you might be feeling on the day. The fact that Oiden and Mappen are sister [...]
Brisket Baguette ($12.5)

KINFOLK

Being an ex-pharmacist-future-doctor, I am all about working for the public sector (yes there are pharmacists in hospitals; no we don’t just ferry ketamine around like drug mules). On the other hand, as an IT dude, Chris is a big ol’ sell-out.

Toasted Bagel ($16.5)

ALIMENTARI

This meal at Alimentari is brought to you by K! The beloved foodie in crime who, if you’ll remember, gave me an awful recommendation for Kaneda. So this is his one big chance at redemption – let’s see if he’s earned his way back into my good books… Alimentari is the closest thing K has to a local café; Mondays see him grabbing a quick [...]
Escargot XO ($26)

RESTAURANT HUBERT

I’m not much of a birthday person. I know plenty of people who use birthdays as an excuse to have a month-long celebration but frankly? I just don’t have that much energy. For me, what birthdays really amount to is a chance to have a good meal, where you splurge a bit on something you normally wouldn’t have. This year however, things are a little [...]
Egg Ramen ($16.8) in Tonkotsu Shoyu Base

YASAKA RAMEN

Yep, it’s still me, I’m still here. Right on the ramen bandwagon. Just a few short days after my last bowl, I found myself craving ramen once again. The folks at Yasaka Ramen understand though; I mean, their motto is No Ramen, No Life – a sentiment I can heartily get behind. Yasaka ramen is a relative newcomer to Sydney’s ramen scene, but it’s done [...]
