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! Even I couldn’t help but coo, cluck and indulge in a bit of cheek pinching. Freddy doesn’t mind, he just […]

Oscillate Wildly with me

August 21, 2009

I’m not really familiar with Newtown as a foodie suburb. Truth be told, if I have any say in choosing suburbs to eat in I generally try to avoid Newtown. Not because there is a shortage of choice for food lovers and shoppers alike – that there is plenty and I love the upbeat vibe […]

Discovering my sweet tooth through Adriano Zumbo

May 29, 2009

I have a confession to make.. *Shhh…* I don’t really care much for desserts. I can hear the gasps and feel the burning brain liquefying stare from the sweet tooth society now. But I just never have. I much prefer savoury foods. You want another secret? This one’s so controversial it might revoke my food […]

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 […]

There has been a diverse variety of establishments there from seafood restaurants, cafes to perhaps even a dentist at some point.

Food voyeurism at Wase

February 16, 2009

Last week I had dinner with the co-pilot and his folks at their favourite new haunt, Wase, in Balmain. Wase hasn’t been open for long but already the co-pilot’s family have become regulars, recommending it to all who will listen. The restaurant is on the main road adjacent the single traffic light in Balmain, but […]

A relaxing Valentines day…

February 15, 2009

Happy Valentines day! Hope yours was as relaxing as mine was. My beautiful best friend, L-bean took me on a femme-date for sushi in Newtown followed by a Thai massage. It wasn’t quite your conventional Valentines day date when you’re alternating between purring happily and on the verge of sleep, to wincing in pain at […]

January 21, 2009

Last night a girlfriend and I had tickets to a gig at the Enmore Theatre so I decided to choose dinner at a restaurant in the nearby area. I decided on the southern Italian cuisine at Da Gianni Trattoria in Annandale. It scored 14/20 in the 2009 SMH Good Food Guide so it was a […]

It’s the only French restaurant in the traditionally Italian suburb of Leichhardt and was given 2 Hats in the 2009 SMH Good Food Guide ( The degustation menu was very well […]

Celebrity foodies & my weekend brunch review

October 13, 2008

I love food shows. I love shows that combine food and travel even more. Particularly Tony Bourdain’s shows – A Cook’s Tour and No Reservations. Fantastic shows! I love how Tony works his witty sense of humour into his travel experiences. If you’ve seen the No Reservations Russia episode where he travels around with his […]
