Thanks to Dr. Stanley Quek, founder and owner of the much loved Kensington Street Mekong in Chippendale for recently launching it’s North Shore branch Mekong – Bistro Mekong Castlecrag. Eager diners wanting to try the Chippendale branch don’t need to cross the bridge anymore, it’s all here, right in the heart of Castlecrag.
If you’re looking for a new HOT SPOT for Italian dining, Zona Azzurri is the one. The 140 seater restaurant is the latest addition to the ever changing restaurant scene in the inner-city suburb of Alexandria. This suburb was once the epitome of industrial Sydney, but now it’s switching gears to becoming a mix of high-rise residential areas, upscale offices, and home to trendy restaurants, cafes and shops.
Over the last few years, Japanese food has gradually been permeating the Sydney food scene with more choices of specialised Japanese cuisine. Gone the days when we think of Japanese food as either sushi or tempura.
Leading the pack is the ‘Teishoku’ dining introduced by Plenus Co Ltd, operator of renowned Yayoi, the largest Japanese Teishuko Restaurant chain in Japan, they also have outlets across Asia and the USA.
A day trip to Bruges or Brugge in Dutch is really not enough to cover what this Unesco World Heritage City offers, shame that I had only one day free when I visited this enchanting Capital city of West Flanders in the Flemish Region of Belgium. There’s so much to do and see this part of Belgium and I guarantee you, this charming medieval city will capture your heart.
Happy New Year everyone! I hope you’ve had a fantastic time during the Christmas holiday break and are looking forward to an exciting New Year ahead. We are still trying to catch up from our vacay last year, hoping that our travel blog will inspire your next travel destination. This post, we look at what it’s like flying with Etihad Airline – Business Class.
That song, ‘I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas’ is literally a fantasy here in Australia, not unless a weird weather pattern strikes, a recent weather front brought plunging temperatures with snow and hail across parts of this amazing continent, when barbies should have been firing the shrimps. It’s a rare occurrence but it does happen. December through to February are the summer months here, it’s also the season of bushfires, heatwaves and tropical storms. Last week alone, the western part of Sydney suffered under blazing 40 degrees Celsius + and the CBD and City suburbs were in the high thirties, now that was hot, cool Southerly winds, where for art though?
Traveling has changed a lot these days, it’s a whole lot easier than it used to be. With all the gadgets, tablets and smartphones, every piece of information we need is at our finger tips where ever we go. Finding our hotel, direction for a nearest pizza place, language interpreter, and hotel reviews are just a click away.
The anticipated flagship restaurant of Cloud Thief has finally opened in the heart of the City inside World Square along Liverpool St. Sydney. Bao Stop, the one we loved for years which offered revolutionised Taiwanese street food now has a new name and a new place to call home.
If the offers are too good, grab them before they’re gone forever, that’s my advice for promo fares, accommodation and tour packages. Just make sure that you read the terms and conditions, most promo fares are non refundable and payment is upfront. If your travel dates coincided with the promo dates then you’ve landed yourself a good deal.
Last week, Stockland – Wetherill Park and celebrity TV chef and cookbook author, Miguel Maestre presenter of The Living Room, shared an unexpected and joy-filled Christmas lunch with 30 shoppers to celebrate a new campaign encouraging us Aussies to connect with others and share the joy this festive season. Miguel said, “community spirit and spending time with others is the most important part of Christmas”.
Visiting foodie friends overseas is such a joy and privilege, not only for a good catch up but sharing sumptuous bites and drinks is such a memory maker. Every time we visit our friends Charlie and Mike in Cirencester UK, they always introduce us to the latest food hot spots in their area.
It’s already November but our Oktoberfest memories seem to linger forever. Oktoberfest Weisn was a dream come true for myself and Steve, our love of the hoppy drink has taken us this year exploring several countries like Japan, Philippines, Belgium, Ireland, United Kingdom and culminating in the mighty Octoberfest in Munich, Germany, in the quest of the best beers. Our journey wasn’t that easy, we had a few hit and misses along the way but it was all worth it.
