Niji Sushi – Kingsford

When people find out I’m a food blogger, usually the first question they ask is “What’s your favourite restaurant”. But I think that its because I’m a food blogger, that its probably the hardest question for me to answer. We are constantly trying out new places, not just so I can get a new post up, but also because we want to get a good variety, try out other peoples recommendations, or have just driven past so may times that it’s a must to go in. I can say however – without a shadow of a doubt – that my favourite cuisine is Japanese. Stud and I definitely have this in common, so most of the places we do tend to frequent, are Japanese restaurants ranging from little hole in the wall locals, to your more upmarket places. I think Niji Sushi in Kingsford fits nicely in the upper...

Yume Sushi – Gladesville

Yume Sushi – Gladesville

When I mention to people the name of my blog, they immediately look at Stud and then kind of put two and two together. Sometimes they get four, sometimes they get eight. Stud actually used to (well still does really) call me Studd as its part of my surname. So when creating Dining with a Stud, it really had a double meaning. However the other night, I realised that it also had a third! When I gave my card to Sarah – our waitress at Yume Sushi – she immediately gestured to her lip, and to the silver stud piercing I have in my lip. It had never even occurred to me! I kind of forget they’re there until someone stares at them while talking to me lol. They’re just part of my face now really. Stud and I were invited to try out Yume Sushi’s new Gladesville restaurant,...

Sushi & Sashimi Masterclass – Ocean Room, Sydney

Sushi & Sashimi Masterclass – Ocean Room, Sydney

Living in Sydney, we can often take our surroundings for granted. Always on our way somewhere – usually in a hurry – we are so concerned with where we are going, that we don’t bother to look around us while we’re getting there. Sydney really is a gorgeous place. I have noticed this more so lately and its really never more apparent than when you’re by the water. Sun bursting through the roof to floor windows, Sydney’s harbour and Opera House on one side and the finest fish money can buy on the other. I’m at Ocean Room at the Overseas Passenger Terminal, Circular Quay, and am surrounded by other Sydney food bloggers and we are in for a treat. Chef Raita Noda – Ocean Room’s executive chef – has graciously offered to give us a sushi and sashimi masterclass (*squeeee*). Chef Raita came to Australia in 1990 from...

SOY Japanese Restaurant – Bondi

SOY Japanese Restaurant – Bondi

Its no secret that Stud and I are massive Japanese fans. Of all cuisines, its def our fave so fresh, reasonably healthy (depending on what you order of course) and just so damn tasty!! So when we were out in Bondi on the hottest day in summer to date (well, to that date anyway), preparing ourselves for the Sculptures by the Sea, we wanted something filling yet light enough that I wouldn’t get a stitch – I’m prone to stitches post meal, but that’s another story. Anyway, we walked past SOY and thought it looked really cool, had a quick glance at the menu and we were sold. We arrived at around 12pm and it was pretty dead. Really just a few other diners and us. It looked like we missed the rush though as about 25mins later, the place was buzzing and people were waiting for a table....

Sushi Hon – Sydney Westfield

Santa has come and gone for another year and I hope all of you had a wonderful day with family, friends, food, and Michael Buble (of course). Stud and I did the usual family lunch, stuffed ourselves silly and then came home to watch Love Actually and have toast for dinner lol. Boxing Day was spent in the city. First time ever for both of us actually braving the Boxing Day sales. Never. Again! It was a nice day out but not massively relaxing haha. We did manage to slip in a quick lunch at Sushi Hon as Stud was craving a Japo fix. I didn’t actually realise until after but apparently, Sushi Hon has the longest sushi train in the southern hemisphere. I have to say, it didn’t look to massive when we were there but we were seated right at the front so didn’t go in too...

Inaka Japanese Restaurant – Peakhurst

Inaka Japanese Restaurant – Peakhurst

Having recently moved away from the North Shore of Sydney (a plethora of culinary delights), Stud and I are still finding our feet in terms of what good restaurants are about and although we were previously spoilt for choice with Japanese cuisine (our favourite), it’s been few and far between of late so when we found Inaka, a five minute drive away, we were pretty excited to give it a go. Stepping back into the 80’s where restaurants stuffed your napkin in the wine glass for presentation; I am ashamed to say that we didn’t have high hopes for this one. We really were spoilt on the North shore. The place did have some charm though and the waitresses we SO attentive and really lovely. What we were longing for most was some good sashimi. A gamble seeing as our hopes were deflated but we were brave and ordered...
