Jade Temple, Sydney CBD

I had the pleasure of indulging in some dumplings at Neil Perry's new venture - Jade Temple which is the sister restaurant to Spice Temple. At lunch time, their yum cha menu is available so Matt and I hit the new venue on a lazy Sunday afternoon. As I entered, I could see Neil Perry at one of the tables. I felt slightly star struck. I did see Neil Perry at Burger Project once as well when it first opened in World Square and had a similar feeling then as well.

Degani, Zetland

Degani is a casual restaurant located outside of the East Village shopping complex in Zetland. The menu is quite extensive and if you're really hungry - you may be tempted by one of their epic meat towers for two. I stop by for a date night with MW one Saturday afternoon although we do not dare try the epic meat tower - we are looking forward to a nice meal.

I Love Pho, Crow Nest

I Love Pho is a great authentic restaurant located in Crows Nest. Beyond the classic noodle soup dish of Pho, the menu at I Love Pho is quite extensive and has a lot of my favourite Vietnamese dishes. I order all my favourites as part of their new signature menu.

Lumi Dining, Pyrmont

Lumi Dining has a stellar reputation in the Sydney dining scene and Matt has been wanting to go here for some time. I took him out to Lumi Dining for a nice lunch for his birthday. I had such an amazing lunch here last time Mel took me that I knew he would enjoy Lumi.

District 8, Cabravale Diggers, Cabramatta

If you haven't been to Cabra-vale Diggers for some time, you should come back and check out their new $18 million dollar renovated venue including the brand new spanking dining area called "District 8". I went there for a family meal and was eager to see what has changed.

Bondi Pizza, Top Ryde

Matt and I are local to the Ryde area and on date night, we decide to check out Bondi Pizza. It's a Friday night so the venue is buzzing. I am feeling a bit cold tonight so I am hoping for a seat inside.

Hisshou Teppanyaki, Haymarket

I've never experienced Teppanyaki before. Recently, True Local hosted a food safari including a teppanyaki experience at Hisshou Teppanyaki. I was excited. Along with other reviewers of True Local, we are seated around a hot iron plate in Haymarket.

The Nolza, Sydney CBD Karoake and Food

Come on Barbie, let's go party. Who's ready for some Karoake fun with a side drinks and Korean/Japanese food? I check out The Nolza recently along with Matt and a few other singing friends. We got a room straight away thanks to Qtix - an app which allows you to digitally queue up.

Yoksod, Sydney CBD

On a particularly stressful Friday lunch, I head to Yoksod for a thai lunch for a $13 with your choice of main and drink (house beer or wine). Yoksod is located within the bar Mr B's which is on the corner of Pitt St and Goulburn St.

Restaurant Plage, Cremorne

Restaurant Plage is my favourite restaurant of 2017 so naturally this calls for a revisit to see what's on offer for the Spring menu. There's a level of sophistication, flavour, balance of texture and technique that I am such a fan of at Restaurant Plage. With Japanese flavour inspirations infused with french technique in cooking - this makes for such a high quality meal.
