Two ex-Single Origin Roasters staffers set up a ramen restaurant co-habitating with a motorcycle repair workshop.

What could go wrong? Oh so little, as it turns out - and so much is oh so right. A fantastic new discovery in Sydney's ramen scene at Rising Sun Workshop!

Nick Smith isn’t your everyday chef. Nobody would think to put a motorcycle workshop and a restaurant under the same roof. Most would also not expect that such a restaurant would be serving pan-Asian cuisine. That such a restaurant would call ramen as its signature dish – and living up to it – was the biggest surprise of …

Getting a little bit sloshed at the Korean Cultural Centre Australia​'s 2016 banquet showcase - all about Korean Alcohol, and to boot we got to make our own as well! Read all about how it's done :D

Your exposure to Korean food is likely BBQs and hotpots. To see what Korean royalty eats, check out the Korean Banquet Showcase. Classy!

Three near-impeccable visits to Berowra Waters Inn is a hat trick of the restauranteering world. One of Sydney's best hidden gems, it's a journey well worth taking.

Brian Geraghty's Berowra Waters Inn continues to be a masterstroke of fine dining achievement. The food is impeccable, the views fabulous. Get on it!

Sydney's latest, and I'm calling it - greatest - patisserie to date. A new favourite for the inner sweet tooth :D

Say hi to Ninou - Boulangerie Pâtisserie Viennoiserie!

‪#‎ninou‬ ‪#‎patisserie‬ ‪#‎french‬ ‪#‎sweets‬ ‪#‎desserts‬
Ninou Patisserie, Boulangerie & Viennoiserie is quite likely Sydney's best sweets shop right now. No hype, all sugar - deliciousness by French prodigies!

An ex-Rockpool chef sets up shop directly opposite his alma mater, promising fine dining without the pretension, while retaining the quality. Does Bouche on Bridge nail the brief?

https://imstillhungry.net/bouche-on-bridge-sydney-cbd/

Harry Stockdale-Powell's mission is to turn fine dining on its head. All of the quality, without the formalities. Does Bouche on Bridge Succeed?

There is some serious talent behind the pans at Jason Atherton​'s Kensington Street Social​.

Cases in point: texturally perfect hiramasa kingfish, a godlike comfort bowl of breakfast rice w/smoked hen's egg, pork belly and BACON dashi, or perhaps the smallest hot dog in existence (but with the greatest flavour)?

Your call.

Restaurant Automata, one year on. Now lauded as one of Sydney's best restaurants, so much has changed.
And not all of it for the better...

#automata #claytonwells #finedining
The Kensington Street reboot in Chippendale gets its first fancy diner in Clayton Wells' Automata. Does it rev itself to stardom, or is it just a junker?

When your eatery is named Salmon & Bear, you hope for two things: damn well-cooked salmon, and a complete absence of bears. Both delivered, thank goodness!

LuMi dining: my favourite Sydney restaurant for 2016. This is Japanese-Italian fusion done right. Federico & the team have outdone themselves in the 1.5 years since I last visited. My only regret is that the time between visits was that long. Lead the way LuMi, lead the way!

LuMi Bar & Dining is quite simply one of Sydney's best restaurants right now. Japan-Italian fusion has never been so RIGHT.

This is it. My magnum opus of 2016. The best burgers in Sydney.
You thought 17 bowls of ramen was something? Please, you haven't seen anything yet.
No cows died in vain in the creation of this post.
