Left of Field – Rhodes

Left of Field (LOF) is the epitome of brunch. The cafe is situated right beside the beautiful water’s edge of Parramatta River, just off the newly constructed Bennelong Bridge connecting Rhodes to Wentworth Point. There is a lovely outdoor seating area where you can enjoy the morning sun and fresh air, while admiring the sparkling new apartments that keep popping up in Rhodes. The menu … Continue reading Left of Field – Rhodes

Fusion – Eastwood

I love Fusion! It’s an authentic Hong Kong cafe and one of my go-to restaurants in this area. The casual vibe is perfect for hanging out with friends and very appropriate for family dinners. I like it because of its versatility and because there’s always something for whatever mood I’m in and whatever time of day it is. If I feel pretty full already, I … Continue reading Fusion – Eastwood

The restaurant itself is spacious and looks like a classic yum cha dining room. The food carts come around often, even for the corners of the room. If … Continue reading Vinh Phat – Cabramatta

A casual bar to the right, a classy dining room to the left. Just being here makes you excited for the experience to come!   *A/N: … Continue reading Restaurant Hubert – Sydney, CBD

Subsolo – Sydney CBD

  I was extremely excited to try Subsolo and potentially relieve some amazing memories of a previous trip in Spain. 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
