Freddy and Faheem’s Fast Food

August 26, 2009

World, please meet Freddy, the luckiest kid around. A few weeks ago the Co-pilot and I caught up with good friends, Mr & Mrs LightningDB and their gorgeous little fella, Freddy. Look at those cheeks!

Discovering Himalaya

May 26, 2009

A recent re-run of a Food Safari episode on Pakistani cuisine had me and the co-pilot mesmerised. We realised we’d never tried Pakistani cuisine before and took note of the restaurants featured on the program with the intention of sampling some good Pakistani fare soon. Our chance came sooner than we thought after a fortuitous [...]

Worried about swine flu? Do as I do and develop a porcine obsession

May 20, 2009

I’ve always been a reluctant but astute student of reverse psychology. If you tell me I shouldn’t eat a particular food, I instantly develop some form of all-consuming craving for it.

April 22, 2009

Makoto makes me happy

February 4, 2009

One of my favourite cuisines is Japanese – specifically sushi, and one of my favourite sushi places in Sydney is Makoto on Liverpool Street, World Square in the city. There are always crowds clambering to get in here so turnover of the conveyor belt dishes is rapid and the food is always ultra fresh and [...]

The best tonkatsu in Sydney

January 7, 2009

Such was the claim at Miso, World Square, one of the Japanese restaurants in the Masyua group (they also own Makoto on nearby Liverpool St – otherwise known as best sushi train in Sydney). I’m not usually a tonkatsu fan but I came across their website and their claim to having the best tonkatsu in [...]
