Milk, Soda And Cutlery Splinters at Whale Beach


When I visit a ‘kiosk’ in Australia I am anticipating meat pies, chips, Chico rolls, burgers and the like. Not so, at this kiosk on affluent Whale Beach. Continue reading “Milk, Soda And Cutlery Splinters at Whale Beach”


Egg of the Universe: A Good Healthy Option


Egg of the Universe bills itself as ‘Sydney’s only integrated Yoga Studio and Wholefoods café’ and its website focuses on the yoga aspect of the business.

As I didn’t come here to exercise a muscle, other than those in my mouth, I won’t comment on the yoga aspect of the business, except to say I did see various people entering and leaving with mats, presumably to part-take of, or having part-taken of, the yoga.

A.Baker: “Remove Your Teeth If That Is An Option For You”


A.Baker is located in the burnt out remains of the former Acton Hotel (in a relatively new residential, art and entertainment precinct). It is designed to give that increasingly common industrial look – raw exposed walls, exposed air conditioning pipes, a rough wooden floor and open kitchen “to further break down physical barriers between raw product, chef and consumer”. “Raw and confident” per their website. So far so good.

Alas, that is where it ends. Continue reading “A.Baker: “Remove Your Teeth If That Is An Option For You””

The Deck at Regatta Point: “Decent Food with a Decent View”


Walking around Lake Burley Griffin and visiting the numerous attractions around it can easily take days. Most visitors will be restricted to a day, or at most two.

There are numerous options, mainly in terms of museum cafes and the like, but my favourite is The Deck, assuming that is that it is a nice day and you actually sit out on the deck rather than inside, which I find cold, bland and lacking in atmosphere. Continue reading “The Deck at Regatta Point: “Decent Food with a Decent View””

Senyai – Thai: “A Cut Above Your Average Thai”


One evening I had a sudden urge for Thai food but didn’t want to walk or travel too far from my hotel (The Grace) in the centre of Sydney.

Regent Place, close to the Town Hall and less than five minutes walk, came to mind as I had eaten there a few times, though not Thai. Regent Place is a throughway between George Street and Kent Street and contains about a dozen upcoming quality eateries. On the lower level I found what I was looking for – a Thai Restaurant called Senyai. Continue reading “Senyai – Thai: “A Cut Above Your Average Thai””

Sedap Malaysian Kopitan: “Hawker Style Malaysian”


Sedap is a delightful little hawker style Malaysian restaurant tucked away from the hustle and bustle of George Street in the Regent Place Arcade. I should add that the arcade has a great selection of eateries including an excellent Thai Restaurant – Senyai – upon which I have written a separate review and in which I have eaten many times.
