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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
