Fei Jai, Potts Point

I was talking to a friend about Fei Jai recently and he too agreed that this restaurant was the type of place ABCs (Australian-born Chinese) would go to, but probably not take their parents. I guess it is knowing how they’...

Wineglass To Wine Glass tour, Freycinet National Park, Tasmania

Tassie has to be the most under-rated holiday destination in Australia. I’ve spent some time in Hobart before but I had no idea what the East Coast of Tasmania had to offer when I was invited to attend a media trip with a...

Kem Chuoi (Vietnamese banana ice-cream)

Trinity Bar – Monday $10 sirloin steaks

Monday isn’t usually a day anyone looks forward to, so I thought I’d tease you with Monday night’s dinner. This is what I had on Monday night this week, and it’s what you could be eating in just three da...

100 Mile Degustation at Cibo e Vino

Jamie’s Italian, Sydney

Not much of a celebrity chef groupie (not that Jamie Oliver is ever physically at this restaurant), I thought I was going to wait this out one. I mean, who really has the time to wait an hour and a half for a table? Well, I was...

Guess who I had breakfast with on Wednesday morning? Jeremy Stoppelman. No, not some random with the same name; it was the man himself, the co-founder and CEO of Yelp. Yelp.com.au launched at 6am Wednesday morning and so I was ...
