A day trip to Cabramatta!

A day spent in Cabramatta is just like a trip to South East Asia with the advantage of leaving your passport behind. It’s a vibrant and colourful suburb located in South-Western Sydney about 30 kilometres from the City.  A melting pot of different cultures all rolled into one place. A gourmand’s destination with restaurants offering the authentic taste of Asia. An ultimate shopping destination of dry goods, fresh seafood, jewellery, electronics, fabrics, street food and an amazing array of exotic fruits and vegetables. 

The Meat & Wine Co opens in Parramatta

Located in the sophisticated Meriton Dining Precinct, Parramatta’s latest dining destination, The Meat & Wine Co brings a modern steakhouse to the area. A few weeks ago I was invited by FCBA (Food Critics and Bloggers Australia) to join them for an exclusive media dinner organised by The Meat & Wine Co to celebrate the opening of their latest branch in the heart of Parramatta.

Tantalise your taste buds at Flour Drum Newtown, Sydney!

Newtown, a vibrant inner west suburb of Sydney is synonymous for trendy eateries, coffees, pubs, bars, designer boutiques and vintage shops. It’s one of Sydney’s most colourful suburbs, and an epicentre of multicultural food. It is just a matter of making a decision of what type of cuisine you want to dazzle your palate and satisfy your culinary wanderlust with.

My Kitchen at The Oasis in Manila – prepare to be delighted

With the horrible traffic jams within Metro Manila, one tends to avoid out-of-the-way restaurants. However, I happily make exceptions for gems like My Kitchen at The Oasis.
My Kitchen is in the little-known Oasis Park Hotel tucked into the curving narrow Belen street in Manila. It may as well be in Timbuktu, if you live in Quezon City and work in Pasig City, given the infuriating traffic jams around the metropolis! Yet for more than a couple of special occasions, we have chosen to celebrate here.

Review: P&O’s Pacific Explorer

We chilled out, dined and partied away on The Food and Wine cruise with P&O Explorer as we sailed out to sea on a Friday evening with an easy check-in that afternoon. The only set back was that our cruise sailed from the White Bay Cruise Terminal in Rozelle, there is no immediate public transport here, note to planners, the redundant rail lines, though severed in places, could be reconnected to the now Light Rail lines from which it originally spurred from to serve this very area, either way, it’s a pain not to have public transport options from a Terminal that is not used as a one-off site.
