Sydney Food Diary: Paramount Recreation Club Kiosk

A Saturday morning and we weren’t sure where to take our friends from Adelaide for breakfast. Paramount downstairs was packed. So, then we see the sign to take us all the way up to the rooftop (perhaps we should have … Continue reading

Sydney Food Diary: L’Americano, Alexandria

We were not going to fight with the crowds at The Grounds of Alexandria after dropping off our e-Waste on e-Waste disposal day (this was surprisingly satisfying to do). And while restaurants attached to stores can be hit and miss, … Continue reading

Sydney Food Diary: Royale Specialty, Surry Hills

First, there was the Gnome Cafe. For years and years. I always thought it was cute: a compact place, busy but you could get a seat with some effort, serving great coffee. Then it was taken over by Brewtown for … Continue reading

Sydney Food Diary: Sticky Fingers Kitchen and Bar, Surry Hills

I don’t know it took me so long to try out Sticky Fingers, just a block back from Oxford Street along the strip. It’s super close to where I live, and I’d heard rumours it was good. Now I’ve managed … Continue reading

Sydney Food Diary: Two Chaps, Marrickville

So, walking up Chapel Street in Marrickville, this is a really non-descript street, some businesses which look like they’ve been around for a long time, a school, a boxy old office building. And then BAM. There’s a cafe, full, with … Continue reading

Sydney Food Diary: Fernside Coffee Shoppe, Redfern

Is this the best bacon and egg roll in the Eastern Suburbs? I’m going out on a limb to say: yes. I mean, it’s a pretty perfect food already. Crispy bacon. Eggs. Breakfast. Mmmm… But I’ve often had ones that … Continue reading

Coffee in Sydney: Bowan Island Bakery, Zetland

Since I’m from Vancouver, Canada, which is not so far from Bowen Island, the name Bowan Island caused me to do a double-take. But internet research is offering no illumination. Aside from the name of a bakery that has become … Continue reading

Sydney Food Diary: Pott’Spot, Potts Point

I confess: I passed up eating here previously because… of the sign. I couldn’t read it at first, and it looks more like Pott’Spat than Spot, which is an even more terrible name for a restaurant. The childish lettering, the … Continue reading

Sydney Food Diary: The Sconery, Chippendale

Sometimes you just have to have a scone, you know? Or at least that’s why we’re heading to the Sconery after a visit to the White Rabbit gallery (usually amazing but I was uninspired by this particular show). But Josh … Continue reading
