Mother India, Middle Dural

We don’t often go out for Indian food. But since we were out in Dural one night last week, we decided to give this place a try. I’d been there before, a long time ago, with friends, but apparently the restaurant is under brand new management (as we were told...

Leura Garage, Leura

D2D and I took off a Wednesday a few weeks ago to do a day trip out to the Blue Mountains for the Sculptures at Scenic World exhibition. It was kind of like Sculptures by the Sea, but hidden amongst the Jurassic-period like forest down below. Unfortunately, even on a...

Devon Cafe, Surry Hills

Updated Post: A few weekends ago, we headed into the City to look into buying a bike from Newtown. We also went in to see the new exhibition at the White Rabbit Gallery called State of Play, and there was a cool recycled art exhibition at the M2 Gallery too!...

Casa Barilla Cooking School, Annandale

Less eating, more cooking! Last Saturday, we went to Casa Barilla Cooking School in Annandale for their The World of Pasta hands on class. D2D and I have come across Barilla before, because they always have a stage at the Good Food and Wine Show, and in 2014, we participated...

Don Campos and Bread & Circus, Alexandria

On one of our Tokyo Bike cycles last year we headed from Surry Hills all the way down through Waterloo, Alexandria and Mascot. We stopped over for a shared afternoon tea at Bread & Circus Wholefoods Canteen, which I admit I actually prefer to the Grounds of Alexandria. The Grounds...

The Principal, Hong Kong

D2D’s a big fan of eating brunch! So for his birthday last year, we were in Hong Kong and I found this place for us to have a fancy type of set brunch, complete with picnic basket and free flowing champagne! Having a look at their website now, it seems...

Shang Hai-6 0

Hakkasan, Shanghai

Ah, Shanghai – such a rainy, rainy city. On our first night in Shanghai, we had arrived around midday and taken the Maglev and then metro to our serviced apartment, Fraser Residence. The Maglev is basically a super fast train that…levitates! It is 40Y and lasts 4 minutes, going up...

Cowbell 808 at 616 Bourke St, Surry Hills

And we’re back at Cowbell! This is a while back as well, but we hired our Tokyo Bikes and arrived at Cowbell 808 to use a Groupon. As always, it’s a little busy on the weekend, but no waiting time – yay! Oooh there’s a Lego head! I order their...

Lost Heaven, Shanghai

Nearing the end of our Shanghai trip in August 2014, we explored the French Concession area and I had it all planned out that we would try the top rated Lost Heaven, which I’d read was in the French Concession area. Lo and behold, a Google search on the evening...

Snoopy-6 0

Charlie Brown Cafe, Hong Kong

I’m not sure why…. but Snoopy and Charlie Brown & Co are very popular in Hong Kong. I never really noticed until I started growing up in Sydney and saw that no one else really thought that Snoopy was cool (and deserved a cafe of its own…).  But 20+ years...

Alfie Hetty-2 1

Alfie & Hetty, Glebe

Another backlogged post! A while back, D2D and I had dinner with B and G – it was a bit of a walk from Central Park to this restaurant along Glebe Point Road, but it turned out to be a good thing as the food was pretty hearty… So who...

Yellow-8 1

Yellow, Potts Point

Here’s a post from a few months ago! D2D sold his old camera a few months ago, so for a while, we had a backlog of D2D’s photos which were stranded on a memory disk. BUT now D2D has bought a new toy – the Sony Alpha 7 Mark II...

Out of Africa, Manly

Just a quick 30 minute ferry ride away from Circular Quay is Manly Wharf. It’s a bit of a trek from the Hills area, but soon we’re seated for dinner at this Moroccan restaurant near the wharf/water for a Groupon five course banquet!

Fika Swedish Kitchen, Manly

On Friday night, we ferried off to Manly to stay over at the Manly Q Station. The next morning, which was scorching hot, we explored a bit of Manly and came across so many cafes and restaurants to try! Why is Manly so far… We ended up at this Fika...

Bowery Lane, Wynyard

At the end of January, we went with B&G to check out the Pop to Popism exhibition at the NSW Art Gallery. I’d gotten a 2 for 1 promo code from my sister, so the tickets were only $10 pp. And it turned out to be great value because the...
