Gourmet Sushi, Brick Lane, London

Gourmet Sushi, Brick Lane, London

It’s sushi time here on Brick Lane. I was ready for some rolled rice treats for my lunchtime and headed over to Gourment Sushi. I sampled their special hoisin duck sushi as well as a serve of the karage chicken. Both were decent. Not the […]

Plum + Split Milk – Great Northern Hotel, King’s Cross, London

Plum + Split Milk – Great Northern Hotel, King’s Cross, London

I visited Plum and Split Milk off the back of this Hot Dinners offer I had. 50% off the weekend brunch menu price was enticing and the food and venue looked upper class to boot. It ended up being a bit snobby in service but […]

Mazel Tov, Budapest

Mazel Tov, Budapest

If there’s gonna be one restaurant I’d recommend for anyone heading to Budapest, it’ll be the one that was recommended to me! My cousin lived a little while in the capital, getting to know the scene, and Mazel Tov was top of her list. And it ended up being top of mine. Stellar Israeli-fusion food, in a signature ruinpub setting, and snappy (the good kind of snappy) service.

Kamakura, Luxembourg City

Kamakura, Luxembourg City

You can find the best Japanese in Luxembourg at Kamakura, named after the former capital of Japan. I have some difference on opinion on the rating of Michelin Bib Gourmand. That award has a price cap of €40 and that would get easily surpassed on […]

SAS Duck and Chicken, Śródmieście Południowe, Warsaw

SAS Duck and Chicken, Śródmieście Południowe, Warsaw

Update: in very sad news, SAS Duck and Chicken has closed.  This last weekend saw me adventuring to Warsaw, Poland. And its much more of a food capital than I could have ever expected. My last meal there was the confit duck brioche from SAS […]

Mr Miyagi, Windsor

Mr Miyagi, Windsor

Hipster pseudo-Japanese haven for those south of the Yarra, at Mr Miyagi the music is loud, the crowds are plentiful and the food is reassuringly good. My friends and I popped along for my birthday dinner and we killed the requisite (thirty minute) wait at a bar nearby. The menu is little bites here and there/ sharing, and it is as pricey as it is extensive. We had a wide range of food items with some mixed success. It’s a popular joint and the decibel level of the venue is definitely up there with nearby Revs and the like. Mostly worth it too, there are a few gems in the fusion menu such as the beef tataki, Miyagi fried chicken, soft shell crab taco, and the corn ball. Some items like the duck banh mi are ridiculously priced, at $14 for a slide-sized bun of mediocrity. Cocktails are a plus too, so a decent hip spot if you feel like feeling mingling with the youth.

Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, Southbank

Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, Southbank

The brand of Heston conjures up visions of amazement, mystery and admiration. It’s safe to say we had all those qualities in droves over our time at Dinner by Heston. Nothing short of extraordinary and a perfect way to see out my final week in […]

Bistro Guillaume, Southbank

Bistro Guillaume, Southbank

My final work lunch of the 2016 year was at Bistro Guillaume, a handy spot with a vista including the ever tranquil Yarra River. We had a big group and a big appetite and both were taken care of over our experience. You can expect expensive, […]

Gazi, Melbourne

Gazi, Melbourne

When I got back to work after a week off (read: eating out) I often got asked where my favourite meal was – and I’d say Gazi was my highlight. The service was perfect, delivery was efficient and the food was great. A few of the dishes were quite heavy in the salt department, but most of the modern influenced menu is funky, fun and moreish.
