Opening Hours: Mon & Tues 4-11pm; Wed – Sat 12pm – 12am; Sun 12 – 10pm
Must Try: Roasted Cauliflower with crisp curried chickpeas


My go-to place whenever I have visitors from overseas. A quick train ride from Central to Milsons Point that showcases our lovely Opera House and harbour.  The Botanist is just a 5 min walk from the train station and if you go on a Saturday, there’s also a market there!

Beer battered chips, house ketchup $8

I’ve been here numerous times and every time I HAVE to order their chips. They’re so goldenly crunchy and their ketchup is very addictive too.

Sliders: Battered fish, jalapeno tartare, iceberg;
Beef, tomato relish, pickles, cheese, mustard mayo $6 each

Time for a little road trip to the pictureque Hunter Valley Region while dad is in Sydney! After spending a bit of money in the wineries, we drove around 20 min to Bistro Molines in Mount View for lunch.


We started off with these complementary skewers with olive, tomato, basil, mozzarella and rockmelon with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. My mouth waters as I think about the flavours of this little dish.

Rice Paper Roll with Pork and Prawn $18

Freshly made rice paper rolls are simply the best and this one comes with a sweet savoury sauce that was made it even more delicious.

BBQ Chicken with Vermicelli $16

Lots of love to the colourful vegetables in this dish along with the slight tangy sauce! The charred taste from the chicken made it even more enjoyable.

Address: 275 Australia Street, Newtown, Sydney 2042
Phone: (+61) 02 9517 4700
Trading Hours: Tue-Sat Open from 6:30pm

I’ve always loved Newtown. There’s just so much variety of food there, from cheap thai to fine dining to gelato. After walking past this humble eatery and talking about making a reservation way too many times, I was over the moon to finally try it out!

G&T infused sugarcane; Pork Skin with
Beetroot Dust & Lettuce with Parmesan
Sucking on sugarcane brings back childhood memories (sans alcohol of course!).  I made sure there were no liquid left in the sugarcane.

These were complementary which we happily nibbled on while waiting for entrees to come. The pork skin was really crispy.

Lobster, Peas, Borage
How beautiful is the presentation. The lobster sashimi was so sweet, I can easily eat endless dishes of them.

Trading Hours:
Tuesday to Friday: Dinner from 5.30pm
Saturday: Lunch (from midday) and dinner (from 6.30pm)


When my bestie Eunice booked her flight back to Sydney, her one request was for me to go to Tetsuya with her. Of course I was up for it because of the famous ocean trout confit that I’ve seen way too many times on social media and TV. Tetsuya offers a 11 course meal ($230/head) - so prepare for a major feast for your eyes :)
