Munich Brauhaus – The Rocks, Sydney

Guten Abend! Let’s be real, German food isn’t going to be a fine gastronomical experience. It’s where you go for a hearty feed, luxurious carbs and protein and a great atmosphere (mostly fuelled by the enormous glasses of bier). If you’ve ever walked past The Rocks area in Sydney during the evening, you would have noticed how popular Munich Brauhaus (former Löwenbrau) is. And you … Continue reading Munich Brauhaus – The Rocks, Sydney

Palsaik – Sydney

Been here three times and the Kbbq has been solid on all occasions. They are especially known for their ‘8 flavours of pork belly’, which include miso, wine, garlic, original, herb, curry, ginseng and chilli. It’s an amazing feast for your eyes even before the feast for your belly begins. The menu is otherwise quite limited, a few hot pots, a few side dishes, a … Continue reading Palsaik – Sydney

BóRN by Tapavino – Barangaroo, Sydney

Bórn by Tapavino is a new gen Spanish tapas restaurant located on the beautiful restaurant strip by the water in Barangaroo.  A meal here isn’t going to be friendly to your wallet, but the interesting menu will allow you to experience some new flavours and ingredients.

Subsolo – Sydney CBD

Some of my fondest memories were the mornings aboard a Renfe train with a diluted Spanish coffee con leche and croissant (and sometimes a fresh orange juice when it was a ‘treat yourself’ day), lunch times of a simple bocadillo with jamon, and those late late … Continue reading Subsolo – Sydney CBD

Fratelli Fresh – Bridge Street, Sydney

What a legend. I love Fratelli Fresh. For me, they have stand out pastas always cooked just right, generous portion size and excellent flavour. The basic spog bol was better than some fancy pastas in other restaurants and the lamb ragu was just luxurious. So many pieces of tender fall-apart slow cooked lamb, in a mellow tomato base – not too much watery sauce, but … Continue reading Fratelli Fresh – Bridge Street, Sydney

Lan Yuan – Top Ryde

The best way I could describe Lan Yuan is like Chef’s Gallery (priced and modernised interior as such) but centred on traditional Cantonese Cuisine instead. The atmosphere is lovely – you’re basically walking into and dining in a bamboo forest with nice sturdy wooden furniture and classy matching oriental cutlery. The dishes are presented in a sophisticated and elegant manner, however they are dishes that … Continue reading Lan Yuan – Top Ryde

El Camino Cantina – The Rocks, Sydney

What a great place to spend the evening with your friends, colleagues or fami- ok maybe not family. El Camino offers unlimited free corn chips n dips, delicious tacos and cheap and large margaritas during their happy hour ($7 from 5-7pm) in a lively and vibrant atmosphere. The usual menu offers classic, mango or strawberry frozen/on the rocks margaritas but they had a raspberry special … Continue reading El Camino Cantina – The Rocks, Sydney
