Let’s Do Dessert 2014: Shangri-La

letsdodessert3There’s only a couple of days left of October, but I thought I’d try to get this post in before Good Food Month is officially over.

I generally only go to one Let’s Do Dessert event each year… mainly due to poor planning but also because the cost adds up quite quickly!

Brewtown – Newtown

DSC03269 I’ve been craving a cronut since I first heard about the craze in NYC… so I’ve been wanting to visit Brewtown for a while as they are one of the few (but growing) places offering cronuts in Sydney at the moment. If you’re unfamiliar with “cronut” it’s basically a crossover between a croissant and a donut that was created by chef Dominique Ansel. The Cronut became a popular phenomenon and TIME magazine even named the pastry as one of “The 25 Best Inventions of the Year 2013”! Continue reading

Excelsior Jones – Ashfield

Excelsior Jones was named ‘Best New Cafe’ in the 2013 SMH Good Cafe Guide. This corner-shop cafe is tucked away in a quiet end of Ashfield, about a 30 minute walk from the train station. This was my first time visiting Excelsior Jones as I wanted to check out what the fuss was about. Continue reading

About 3 years ago, I was having lunch with my friends Jazz and Grace. At the time Jazz was single and didn’t think she would ever get a date. Grace and I thought this was silly and placed a bet with her, our bet was that if she was still single by the time she turned 26 we would give her $100 each but if she was in a serious relationship by 26 – she would give us each $100. It was a deal. Not long after this bet, she started dating a great guy and they got married last year. To celebrate our win, we decided that we would contribute the amount towards a good meal… and finally earlier this month we went to Momofuku Seiōbo for lunch! Continue reading

Let’s Do Dessert 2013: Glass Brasserie

DSC01033

Last night I squeezed in a last-minute “Let’s Do Dessert” (formally known as “Sugar Hits”) before the end of October’s Good Food Month.

After going to a farewell dinner for my colleague Yvette (I will blog about Mejico soon!), I went to Glass Brasserie at Hilton Sydney for a late night indulgence with friends who had just finished a wedding rehearsal. Continue reading

[Note: This restaurant has since closed]

It was a busy Saturday night when Peter & I decided to visit Jackson’s Restaurant at Landmark Hotel in Eastwood.

I’ve been wanting to dine at Jackson’s since it first opened in September last year as recommended by my friend Diana whose husband is the head chef there. In December, Mitchell Davis won the title ‘Best Pub Chef’ in Sydney Morning Herald’s 2013 Pub Food Guide. Continue reading

MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Sorry for the lack of updates… I’ve been busy away from Foodsaurus and have now returned with a post 🙂

I recently went to Melbourne for a holiday where I enjoyed the city life, visited Frankston to see their annual sand sculptures and of course ate lots of food! Continue reading

Sugar Hit 2012: Sofitel Sydney Wentworth

Believe it or not, this was my first ever Sugar Hit! My friends have been going to Sugar Hit through Crave Sydney International Food Festival (previously known as Good Food Month) during October for a number of years – I finally joined them this year. Continue reading
