Strozzapreti, Pork and Fennel Sausage Ragu, Broccoli ($28)

BACCO

One of the suckiest things about being in Sydney is not having my sister around at all times. I’ve gotten rather used to her in the last 15-odd years, and I’ll admit it was rather jarring to not have her constantly in my hair all of a sudden. On the bright side however, during the times we do see each other (when one of us [...]
Wagyu Bacon and Cheddar ($17.9)

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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
Kushiro Shoyu Ramen ($13.9)

MENYA NOODLE BAR

Believe it or not, despite having been in Sydney – aka the ramen capital of Australia – for 4 months, I’ve only had one bowl of ramen. Unlike Melbourne, the Sydney summer can be relied on to be consistently warm and humid, which meant I had little to no excuse for noodle soup. But now that the weather is finally cooling down, it’s time to [...]
