Bishop Sessa

Bishop Sessa

Last week, I had the immense pleasure of dining at Bishop Sessa with friends. Luckily, it was a Tuesday evening, which meant that 3 courses only cost $49 (they also run this offer on Mondays). Throw into the mix the homemade warm bread rolls and surprise amuse bouche...
Zushi

Zushi

Last Saturday night was the fourth time I have dined at Zushi, but it was the first time I have paid full price (if you sign up to their newsletters, you get your age % off the total bill, with no limit!). Previous times, it was just 2 or 3 of us dining. This time,...
Crown Street Fish Shop

Crown Street Fish Shop

On Wednesday night, I went to Crown Street Fish Shop for $1 dumplings! We were hoping they would have several options, but as it is a fish shop, they just had prawn dumplings – they were pretty good though. This obviously wasn’t going to fill us up, so my partner...
Nomad

Nomad

The first thing that struck me about Nomad is how similar to Ester it is. And that can only be a good thing. The owners and chefs may disagree, but for me the inner-city, trendy, urban location, warehouse style restaurant and food were all quite similar. The main...
Gelato Messina

Gelato Messina

Where do I start? How can  begin to do Gelato Messina justice? They wee voted the Best Gelato in The SMH Guide 2011 and they have not slowed down since. To my delight, they now have branches in Darlinghurst (complete with a Dessert Bar), Surry Hills, The Star, Bondi,...
The Winery

The Winery

The Winery is a great spot in Surry Hills for a pre-dinner drink (there are so many great restaurants nearby, such as Zushi next door), but they also do great food themselves. In fact, it is the kind of place where you might pop in for one or two with plans to get...
Movida Sydney

Movida Sydney

When I heard Movida was opening a restaurant in Sydney, in October 2012, I was very excited but also very nervous. Nervous that it would not be open in time for my birthday that is. Luckily it opened a few days before and that is where I celebrated with friends. At...
Reuben Hills

Reuben Hills

Okay, I admit it. The main reason I wanted to go Reuben Hills was for the Salted Caramel Milkshake. And boy, it didn’t disappoint. Food wise, I was really tempted by the Banana Peanuts & Espresso Bread with salted caramel butter, but decided reluctantly that you...
Chur Burger

Chur Burger

I haven’t tried Burger Project yet, but Chur Burger surely must be in the Top 3 burgers in Sydney (Rockpool Bar & Grill is in there too, holding out judgement for number 3). Chur Burger is another example of a renowned Sydney chef closing a fine dining restaurant...
Deli Wine Bar

Deli Wine Bar

I was lucky enough to be invited to the Opening Night of this new bar by Darrell Felstead. His new restaurant, Foveaux St Dining, also opened at the same time, but I have not had chance to check it out yet. Both Deli Wine Bar, and the restaurant reportedly, are a lot...
