Crackles Classic ($14.5)

MR CRACKLES

Let me put this down on record so Chris can’t weasel out of it down the track: he has promised to bring me an entire sheet of pork crackling at uni. And where exactly does one get an entire sheet of pork crackling? Mr Crackles of course, the place where the name really does say it all. Having long-since held cult status in Sydney (and [...]

RIBS AND BURGERS

Any excuse to eat burgers is a good one in my books. Ever since I started keeping a closer eye on my diet (now that I don’t live at home with MARM, I need to make sure that I’m not eating too much, but still eating enough!), I’ve found it harder and harder to justify a meal that can easily take up 70% of my [...]

THREE ONE 2 ONE

Remember the freakshake? That monstrous mash-up between beverage and dessert? It had a small heyday a year or two ago, but like all over-the-top fads, it didn’t last long. But now, Three One 2 One is bringing (sexy) freakshakes back (yeah!), along with a selection of extravagant burgers, and I was lucky enough to be invited along to check the spectacle out. Three One 2 [...]

TANK FISH AND CHIPS

Remember when getting fish and chips meant walking down the road to a slightly dingy, rundown shop to get some fish, potato cakes, dim sims and minimum chips in a sweaty paper package for the family? As much as I might harbour nostalgia for those childhood memories, you won’t catch me saying no to any of the newer, cleaner, and more stylish fish and chipperies [...]
