Hunanese cuisine at Chairman Mao Chinese Restaurant

July 20, 2009

We’ve been keen to try out the Hunanese fare on offer at Chairman Mao Chinese Restaurant since a recent review in the SMH. The Co-pilot and I tried to guess how Hunanese style Chinese food might taste – but this exercise largely returns blank faces. We hazarded a guess that given Chairman Mao himself was [...]

Vealy good fare at Danks Street Depot

July 8, 2009

Who says Twitter is a waste of time? Ahem *looks accusingly at the co-pilot* Well, thanks to Twitter and my lightning speed response to Chef Jared Ingersoll’s Twitter post – a week ago I scored myself dinner for two at Dank Street Depot’s produce dinner of biodynamic veal! After an extended moment of exuberant celebration [...]

Hearty fare at North Bondi Italian

March 21, 2009

We’ve been meaning to try North Bondi Italian for a while now, but for one reason or another haven’t found the time to make it there.

Pizza challenge! Second contender: Hugos

February 9, 2009

The second pizza challenge contender is one I’ve visited only recently – Hugos Bar Pizza. After the first Hugos experience, I had already decided I needed to try other pizzas to really assess the pizza quality properly and do it justice. An opportune moment presented itself when friends decided to catch up for a celebration [...]

Hello, you sexy, irresistable Brazilian piece of meat

February 3, 2009

I presume you’re beef? That’s right. It’s churrascaria fever baby. Recently my friend Jo and I caught up at one of the new churrasco joints that have been springing up all around Sydney – the one we went to was on William Street in East Sydney. Like all churrascarias, it’s an all-you-can-eat affair. Excellent! My [...]

World’s best pizza?

January 6, 2009

After meaning to for years, I recently finally found an opportunity to try the pizza at Hugos Bar Pizza. A few years back I heard they’d won a pizza competition in New York with a very bold and inflammatory title: “World’s Best Pizza”. From memory the winning pizza was something with a seafood flavour but [...]
