Cafe Opera, InterContinental Hotel, Sydney

Posted on November 11, 2011

Babysitter booked? Check!

Outfit picked out? Check!

Ready for date night? Yes!

Hubby and I are baby-free and ready to relax with a nice meal and good bottle of wine on a Friday night. The room at Cafe Opera may have been newly renovated but the buffet is still bursting at the seams with fresh seafood, salads, meat and a whole wall of sweet treats. Plus, there is an an a la carte menu too.

However, the buffet just looks so enticing with it’s piles of glistening seafood that it is too hard for us to resist. We do a ‘recon’ lap to scope out our plan of attack and then gingerly pick up large, clean white plates and begin piling them high with the cold seafood selections…  (more…)

Review: Caffe Sicilia, Surry Hills

Posted on September 30, 2011

As we sat looking at the menu a very handsome waiter approached us and said “Don’t worry, we already know what we are going to feed you. A little bit of everything. It will be a feast of good food and wine”. Well, who can argue with that? Not us!

Admittedly, the handsome waiter knew we were reviewing the restaurant during our visit, but you really cannot not expect a better reception at a restaurant in any circumstance. It was absolutely lovely to just sit back and wait for the food to roll out. (more…)

Review: Concrete Blonde, Kings Cross, Sydney

Posted on August 30, 2011

Concrete Blonde is nice and dark – perfect for a date. It was ideal for hubby and I, because we were on a date when we reviewed it.

Therefore, I’ll need to apologise in advance for the photos – they’re not very good – but don’t let that stop you from checking it out, because the food is fantastic. (more…)

Fredo Pies, Frederickton

On our recent road trip to Lennox Head along the NSW coastline we stopped at Fredo Pies for lunch. You can see the iconic sign with the crocodile on it from quite a distance, and it makes your tummy grumble. (more…)

Marrickville Pork Roll: Bahn Mi Thit

Posted on August 11, 2011

You must, at least once, eat a Vietnamese pork roll. I insist. Please put it on your foodie bucket list.

Even better if you devour it in Marrickville, Sydney, where the large Vietnamese population demands the very best version possible. (more…)
