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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
Cheese Slice ($5)

TAKEAWAY PIZZA

Out of all the restaurants I’ve left behind in Melbourne, one of the ones I miss the most is Dexter. I’ve never come across anything quite like it before, and I’m basically obsessed with their amazing take on American BBQ. So it would come as no surprise that on a recent weekend trip to Melbourne, I made a beeline for the Takeaway Pizza, the sophomore [...]
Eggs Benny ($18)

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 [...]
