Justin Isip

Justin believes that some of the best places you’ll ever try are the ones you don’t even know you’re looking for. Though an admirer of good music and film, Justin’s main aspirations lie within his passion for food. With an obsession over doughnuts, he devotes his spare time eating his way through Sydney’s latest food trends. In the rare case that he is not thinking about food, you’ll find him out and about - photographing whatever captures his attention. Never turning down an opportunity to try new things, Justin is always on the search for a new food taste sensation.

Royal Stacks, Chatswood, Sydney

Thievery, Glebe, Sydney

Growing up, I was taught that stealing was bad… clearly Thievery didn’t get the memo. With an idea that the “menu was stolen from a big shot chef”, I don’t mind though, because the food here is too good not to be shared. It was...
