Pillar of Salt | Richmond

The kind of eatery that makes me consider the move to Melbourne! Pillar of Salt's menu is dotted with influences from around the world where Japanese matcha pancakes and eggs with Turkish sausage mingle with a Greek breakfast board, Korean bibimbap, Italian linguine and Malaysian duck roti. Confused? Perhaps. Brilliant? For sure! Paired with...

Gogyo | Surry Hills

Hands down one of my favourite new restaurants this year, Gogyo has reconfirmed my admiration for Shigemi Kawahara, i.e. the same guy that brought us Ippudo, i.e. the creator of my ramen dreams.

Back in 2015, I stumbled across John Smith and fell in love with a certain avocado on toast with goats cheese, chilli jam and a snowstorm of rainbow coloured edible flowers. Fast forward a few years and I've rediscovered this glorious little corner cafe, which is full of character and really (really) good food...

I Love Pho | Crows Nest

Potentially my favourite cuisine, Vietnamese food holds a very special place in my heart and stomach. From bánh xèo to Bún bò Huế and Vietnamese iced coffee that 110% gave me the caffeine jitters (worth it!), to me, this is comfort food at its finest. I Love Pho is an excellent option in the lower North Shore of Sydney, and if you're not from this side of town? They...
