Dine out


Visiting the Tramsheds @ Harold Park Dine out

I was wandering along King St, Newtown while Stu had his haircut and I bought a scrap of  Japanese cotton in a super cute floral pattern. I was planning to turn into a shirt but it’s a smidge not wide enough… so yet another paper bag elastic waist skirt it is. (I really need to teach myself how to sew a zip so I can expand my repetoire). Anyway, this is a post about food not sewing! Even though we had a snack before departure I was pretty hungry by the time we drove all the narrow back streets (thanks no thanks...

Breakfast in someone’s garage at Two Chaps Dine out

At least that’s what it felt like… we drove down a street lined with orange brick warehouses and reverse parked against a wall padded with a cushion of grass and weeds. I’m super good (most of the time) at reverse parking courtesy of Sydney. Driving anywhere is a challenge and finding a park can be worse unless you are comfortable squeezing into small spaces or parking half in/half out against a yellow line because other people can’t park properly. My logic is if my car is only half out of the designated parking area then I can only get half a...

Secret foodies in a secret garden Dine out

Secret Foodies is a company in Sydney that organises dinners in secret locations – special, exclusive, different events enjoyed with friends or friends you haven’t met. A text message is sent two hours before with the location of the dinner – the mystery really adds to the experience as you are likely to be invited to a place you have never been before (and may not have a chance to visit again). Our location for the evening was a heritage listed home in Millers Point which was built in the 1830s, one of the oldest surviving heritage buildings in Sydney. Walking onto...

A secret dinner at The Farmed Table Dine out

I am at a loss for words – I don’t know what I can write to give justice to how awesome this dinner was. Location. Atmosphere. Drinks. Food. Company. It was so good. Easily one of the best dining experiences I have had in Sydney. The Farmed Table is Brendan Cato – chef and forager focused on ethical and sustainable food. The concept is simple – bringing people together over a meal which showcases seasonal local produce and products from a particular region. With the exception of olive oil, if it isn’t grown or made within a 40km radius of the region...

The Grumpy Barista Dine out

The Grumpy Barista is a great name for a cafe – if the staff are having a bad day you think to yourself “Well, we were warned,” and if the staff are pleasant it’s a lovely surprise! The cafe sits on a corner of a kinda busy street in Petersham right near the train station and is clearly a place where locals love to meet. Stu and I were preparing to go and lingering over the dregs of our coffee when two gentleman took a seat on the stools beside us and were soon joined by a well dressed couple...
