A Food Fable - our story about food in Sydney and beyond.

Tim Ho Wan-4 2

Tim Ho Wan, Chatswood

So when this place first opened, apparently there were queues extending far and wide to get a table. The wait was told to be around two hours minimum, and Tim Ho Wan had installed  velvet ropes to keep the eager foodies in line. When D2D and I decided that, ok,...

Barrafina Tapas Bar, Sydney CBD

Last Friday, D2D and I ended the working week with a double date dinner with YJ and D. What a great way to wind down and it was a surprisingly warmer week too, so that was quite nice. A taste of the spring and summer nights coming back? Couldn’t be...

Civilian Bar & Kitchen, Darlinghurst

Last Wednesday night, I headed into the City to meet up with D2D for dinner in Darlinghurst, using a $50 Dimmi redemption. D2D’s parents had been gone the whole week, holidaying it up on a road trip bus tour to Uluru and back – so this meant D2D was without...

Boronia Tea Rooms, Mosman

Last Saturday, D2D and I headed off to Mosman for a sparking high tea brunch at Boronia Tea Rooms. We found some street parking (free on weekends) in one of the side streets and then walked. The Boronia Tea Rooms is a hard place to miss along Military Road. It’s...

Three Blue Ducks, Bronte

Last Saturday, D2D picked me up at like 5:30am to head into the City! Yes, 5:30am – on a Saturday! Usually we only get up that early for a flight, which we decided to book super early to save money… But this time, we were heading in to drop off...

Ahgora, Glebe

Last Friday, we headed in for an early dinner at 5:30pm. We took the bus from the CBD up to Glebe Point Rd and squeezed in with the rest of the commuters, who were just heading or elsewhere. We don’t head into Glebe that often, but it’s long been known...

Foveaux St Dining, Surry Hills

Oh oops, I forgot to update from last time, so this is now Round 3 and Round 2 updates at the same time! Yeah, we’ve been here quite a few times now – even D2D was complaining about how we had almost eaten everything on their menu. Luckily, when we...

Kinfolk, Melbourne

Over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, I flew over to Melbourne to tag on to the end of D2D’s work trip there. It was an early start, leaving the house at 4:30am in order to catch the 7:00am Jetstar flight to Melbourne, then lugging my bag into the CBD. Thankfully,...

Pishon Patisserie, Chatswood

Asian cafes (usually Korean ones) are great, because they stay open late for after dinner drinks and desserts. With most Western cafes, they tend to close up shop around 3 or 4pm, which is terrible when we’re in the City on a weekend late afternoon and just want a place...

Cala Luna, North Sydney

Set inside a heritage federation style mansion, Cala Luna in North Sydney (it’s also Middle Harbour) is an intimate Italian restaurant with also four rooms available for functions. It was pretty cold when we went last night, but there was easy parking along Miller Street, with the normal paid metre-ing...

Memento Lounge & Bistro, Sydney CBD

Unfortunately, this is not going to be a particularly favourable post. Usually, we don’t encounter places that we aren’t actually pleased with. Sure there’s place that are just “okay” and you shrug, and just probably never think back to. But there are places that you actually think – hm, I...

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...
