Zyka the Taste – Riverwood

Zyka the Taste – Riverwood

It’s hard to find a good Indian Restaurant – especially when your partner is originally from the UK and all you hear from his friends is how Australia doesn’t do Indian as good as the UK does – so we didn’t have especially high hopes to be honest. We had ordered take-away from Zyka a little while ago and although the food was nice, it was a little too spicy so the flavour was kind of lost. We had hoped it would be different when dining in so took a couple of our friends (one of them is half Indian) along with us for the experience. We were greeted at the door by a small child and the waiter. A little unsure, we advised of our booking and they seated us to a table towards the front. It wasn’t overly packed inside but there were enough people to constitute...

Subterranean Grill – GPO Sydney

Subterranean Grill – GPO Sydney

Upon entering GPO we are searching for signs to point us in the right direction of our reservation. Nothing. A fairly new addition to the family, Subterranean Grill is tucked away in the far corner of the underground that is GPO and a little hard to find but once you walk in, you are punched in the face with the fresh smell of garlic. In my opinion, there is no greater smell to be greeted with. More like an eat-in fast food place rather than a restaurant as you need to order and pay for both drinks and wine up at the counter. You are then given a beepy thing (as I like to call them) to summon you back to the counter to get your food. Eight food loving ladies and a menu of Greek food was a match made in heaven, trying to decide on which to...

Tetsuya’s

Our first restaurant review takes place on a very important date at a very important restaurant. It is none other than our five year anniversary, at no other place than Tetsuya’s. Our reservation was made three years ago and each year has been pushed back due to other commitments however this year we decided five years is an important milestone and should be celebrated as such. Both of us purchased a spanking new outfit and even booked a five star hotel room near the restaurant to ensure the half an hour taxi ride home wasn’t going to spoil the evening. With butterfly’s all day thinking of my evening to come I was so excited to finally taste the world renowned food from such a great chef. When we arrived it was pouring with rain which unfortunately spoiled my photo of the Zen-like front porch but we were very well...

Good Food and Wine Show 2010

Friday 16 July marked a delicious day in Sydney’s calendar – the opening day of the Good Food and Wine Show. Stud and I have attended the past couple of years and always end up eating too much, drinking too much and off course, spending too much. It’s the best day ever!! This year we had mentioned to my dad how great it was and he seemed really excited about it so for his birthday we purchased him (and ourselves) a Wine Lover’s ticket. That gave us show entry, a Riedel “O Series” wine glass and a wine tasting session with the Riedel crew. So the three of us headed off, camera and notebook in toe bright and early Friday morning. We aimed to arrive pretty early this time as got burnt last year by all the crowds so arrived just after 10am and headed on our Show journey....
