Just down the road from Café Hilde is the basement bar and restaurant with seating outside in summer, Leibhaftig. Despite being 585kms from the capital of Bavaria, Leibhaftig serves Bavarian tapas and craft beers. Try the obatzda, a bavarian cheese dip that is both smokey and creamy served with rye. We shared 2 plates of […]
This cosy neighbourhood café proved to be a winner. For me, the shared breakfast plate for 2 was a triumph. Meats, cheeses, salad, boiled eggs, fruit, bread and jam all in plentiful quantities. The omelettes, made with any combination of ingredients and fresh cakes and strudel are also worth a mention- as are their unusual […]
Sydney has some pretty crazy weather at times and once, on a warm Sydney summers day, we decided to go into a dark heavy metal pub with no windows. Whilst inside, the heavens opened and hail like golf balls fell from the sky. Meanwhile burgers, fried chicken, and a hell of a lot of Jack […]
Pastizzi are a traditional savoury pastry from Malta often filled with cheese or meat. They are also little drops of heaven in a delicious flaky pastry. Pastizzi cafe serves an array of flavours as well as homemade filled pasta. Have a few pastizzi for a super tasty and cheap lunch. The cafe has a small […]
The menu has changed a lot in the last couple of years and it seems that the ever popular cronut donut has now left the menu, perhaps too many people had very high increases in cholesterol. This is however, still the place for cronuts (croissant donuts) in Sydney.
The watermelon cake at Black Star is a Sydney icon. Thinly sliced watermelon layered with rose and strawberry jelly and laden with pistachios this place is just fantastic. It’s also a great aphrodisiac.
Apparently Newtown has the highest concetration of Thai restaurants outside Thailand and I can absolutely believe that. For my shame however, I came to Thai La Ong on a recommendation of a friend and couldn’t imagine going anywhere else. Try the red duck curry and the curry puffs and you will not be disappointed.
I must admit we turned up to Umami exhausted, on a very hot, very busy Berlin August Saturday and were very lucky to get a seat. In summer the restaurant, specialising in IndoChinese cuisine, more than doubles in size with tables sprawling out to the square in front. The atmosphere was buzzing with street performers […]
After all that eating, the only natural thing to do is drink some beers and Prater Biergarten is one of the biggest in Berlin. To me this is how a German biergarten should be, long gregarious benches, simple foods (pretzels galore) and plenty of beers to try. Now this absolutely is not a recommendation as […]
