Travel - The Workshop Kitchen
The Powerhouse Tamworth is the fanciest hotel in Tamworth. The bare architectural bones are that of a thirty-year-old highway motel perched on the road to Armidale, however it’s currently in the midst of a rather fancy renovation headed up by Paul Kelly Design. You might know this popular Sydney design outfit from venues like District Brasserie, Nu Bambu in...

Review - Spice World Sydney
With robot waiters circling the dining room handing out mints to diners, and Barbie dolls wrapped in wagyu reminiscent of Lady Gaga’s meat dress, Spice World is certainly an eye-catching operation. The Sydney branch of this Chinese chain of spicy Sichuan hot pot restaurant hovers one level above Sussex Street, accessed via an escalator behind a check in desk. The...

Review - Massaya
In the midst of a fast food enclave that boasts bad food giants McDonalds, Subway, Oporto and KFC, you’ll find Massaya: Authentic Lebanese Cuisine. While the exterior architecture that sees it tucked underneath a gym in bland, corporate-style, might not imbue you with confidence, might not imbue you with confidence, the big, 170-seater space is actually a great place to eat an...

Review - Gami Chicken & Beer
Eating lunch in the heart of the CBD can be an expensive business. Popping up at the corner of Market Street and Clarence Street just over a month ago, Gami Chicken & Beer, seem set to change all that with their thirteen-buck lunch menu. Spicy Chicken Fried Rice ($13) arrives as a steaming mound of red rice on a cast iron pan with a small piece of chicken katsu...

Review - Dragon Palace Chinese Restaurant Tamworth
Regional Chinese restaurants are a guilty pleasure. I don’t know if it’s their grandiose names, their architecture and interior design, or that my childhood gave me a soft spot for Aussie Cantonese dishes, but if time permits, I usually try to squeeze in a visit to one on any regional trip I happen to make. Dragon Palace came to my attention...

Review - Sushi and Grill
Fronted by a little takeaway bar, with quite a surprising view, Sushi & Grill @ York Street is actually a moody little underground restaurant. The restaurant downstairs makes all the nori rolls you see at the counter upstairs, so even if you take your lunch on the run, you can be assured that your sushi hasn’t sat there all day. Pulling up on their al fresco padded...

Review - Hunter & Barrel
With atmospheric smoke haze making the looming, oversized IMAX Sydney building look a bit like an unfinished Death Star, I ventured into Hunter & Barrel to find out what they’ll be cooking this summer. This attractive, Cockle Bay Wharf venue, that specialises in age-old techniques like meats roasted over an open coal grill, has turned to the elements for their new menu...

Review - Nikkei Bar & Restaurant
There’s fusion cuisine, and then there are situations where two cuisines fit together so well, they create something greater than the sum of their parts. Nikkei unites Peruvian indigenous cuisine and ingredients with Japanese culinary sensibilities; and it’s been shaped through more than a hundred years of Japanese immigration. The particular success of this...

Review - Kitchens On Kent
After indulging in some day spa action downstairs in The Langham, Sydney’s star-lit underground swimming pool, we ventured to the surface of this boutique 96-room property to check out their latest restaurant offering. Kitchens on Kent is an upmarket hotel buffet, where they have spared no expense on the cultivation of your comfort. The plural in the name comes from...
