Burgers Anonymous

You know those nights when it’s 11.27pm and you know that if you stay awake beyond half past, you will NOT be waking up to your 6.30am alarm the next morning? That is life for me. Each and every single working day, I will promise my body it will get its much-needed rest. And then […]

Meat and Cheese and Pickles and Bun.

There aren’t a great deal of things I’d be happy doing day in, day out with this little life I’ve been given. There aren’t a million and one things I feel I simply must do before I’m 86 (the average life expectancy of an Australian woman). My hobbies aren’t brimming with thoughts of adventurous sports […]

The Lord Gladstone Hotel

It seems we have reached a new era – we don’t […]

Purely Pasta (Closed)

And a few sweet things in a cabinet. I can’t say I’ve had amazing pasta at a takeaway joint before. I look at an oil-slicken tray […]

Food Trucks United

You know how rare it is to find a food truck in Sydney? One of my friends recently came back from studying an exchange year in Pennsylvania and even the University of Pennsylvania has a bunch of food trucks lined up waiting for hungry students to devour their fare. In Sydney, however, you have to […]
