Last Saturday night in the hustle and bustle of Newtown, Felicia and I came to dine at Onyx Restaurant & Cocktail Bar. As the name suggests, we were going to have a rocking time (no pun intended). We were ready to try some cocktails! 




We got the chance to meet Gerry the owner and he told us to relax and enjoy the food. Gerry informed us this is his 4th restaurant, his previous one being Agave in Surry Hills. I asked him where the restaurant name came from and he mentioned in his home town, they have mines dedicated to onyx. He even showed us the onyx lamps near the bar, it is quite beautiful and exquisite.

Balls balls balls, not any ball....MEATBALLS! After receiving an invitation to this fine establishment, I must admit we were a little immature and cracked a few jokes about eating balls.

Yurippi At The Cliff Dive - Head Here For A Good Night Out!

Yurippi at The Cliff Dive

Address: Basement 16 Oxford Square  Darlinghurst (Near Burton Street) | http://www.thecliffdive.com.au/

Opening Hours: Monday - Tuesday: CLOSED, Wednesday - Saturday : 6:00pm-3:00am, Sunday: CLOSED

Must Try: Monkey Hat, Skewers and Pandan Rice


With the address indicating "Oxford Square", I thought it was located inside the Oxford Square where Fitness First is. After asking around, we found the bar with its bright pineapple door near Burton St - at the other side of the road! Don't make the same silly mistake as us..





I curiously stared at the glowing thing as I walked down the stairs - HELLO GLOWING TIKI MASKFollowing the trail, we were then greeted by a huge tiki statue. We were informed by Sam who is a bartender at The Cliff Dive, that the owners  (Alex Dowd, Jeremy Blackmore and Russell Martin) imported these from Bali, in a shipping container along with the other furniture and decorations in the bar. What a way to set the mood!

Recipe: Earl Grey and Lemon Cake with Blueberry Swirl

Recipe: Earl Grey and Lemon Cake with Blueberry Swirl





We went for high tea at Langham to celebrate Mother's Day (very backlogged post will be coming up soon). Everyone had a goodie bag to take home that day which included Wedgewood tea.

I was lucky to have my favourite Earl Grey in my bag. There's something about the citrusy bergamot aroma from Earl Grey that brings me comfort. Since we don't really drink tea at home, why not make a cake with it :)

I adapted the recipe from TWC but instead of putting whole blueberries in, I made blueberry jam swirls so I can taste blueberry in every bite of the cake.

Happy Baking!

Coco Noir - Delicious Tomato Chutney!

Cafe: Coco Noir (Eastgardens)

Address: Westfield Eastgardens, Level 1 152 Bunnerong Rd, Eastgardens, NSW

Must Try:  Anything on their menu with their home made tomato chutney



Coco Noir - Next Stop: Food

I go to Eastgardens Westfield frequently to go see my doctor, who is very popular. Even if I get there early at 8:30am, there will already be 15 people in front of me. What to do while I wait? Enjoy a breakfast in the spacious Coco Noir and go shopping of course!

Coco Noir - Next Stop: Food
Breakfast Panini w/ crispy bacon, fried egg & house made tomato chutney $8.5

I decided to order the Breakfast Panini and absolutely LOVE the tangy and appetizing chutney with this dish. It ties the combination of the crispy bacon and fluffy eggs together. These are also very generous servings and definitely worth the money!

This dish originally comes with a fried egg, but upon request they were more than willing to change it to scrambled egg for me :).
