I love sampling the best and brightest of Sydney gems as much as the next socialite, but when it comes to seeking comfort and consistency, having a ‘local joint’ is more important than anything. I appreciate that everyone has their own favourite local haunts, and for us, Ken’s Kissa Japanese Cafe is the perfect example.
There are days where you crave carb like no other…then, there’s me. Carbs all day, errrrrday. Having been on an Italian food binge for the last few days, I thought it fitting to up the ante and have a girls night out in Leichhardt. There’s no shortage of options in Leichhardt, but for an intimate group of friends who long for hearty Italian in a beautiful, elegant dining space, it had to be Grappa.
We love a good Korean BBQ. One that usually involves grilling marinated meats and vegetables, lots of appetising side dishes, great service and a relaxed atmosphere. Upon hearing that 678 Korean BBQ have opened up in a huge spacious lot in Eastwood, we gathered a group of family friends and our healthy appetites to give it a try.
As a video game novice, playing Breath of the Wild is my first immersive experience into the world of Zelda, and boy, what an experience it has been. Before the release of this game on the new Nintendo Switch (aka “Zelda machine”), my partner has been talking his head off about this game. And it wasn’t just him, the whole gaming world was raving with excited anticipation. So, naturally, I became curious.
Urban Bites has been around for a long time and I remember visiting the cafe back in my uni days. Back then I was the eager, fresh-faced student hoping to find a cosy place in between lectures for a piccolo to go with my course reading. Fast forward a few years later, returning to this somewhat iconic Newtown hub for a casual business meeting, it summoned a wave of nostalgia.
Every time I visit Ryo’s in Crows Nest, there is a queue outside the bright orange double-doors. I suppose that is the way life is now in Sydney, if you want something authentic and delicious, you just have to join the queue. A quick glance up and down the line and you can see all the ramenous patients experiencing withdrawal symptoms, restless and eager to get their fix.
