This week: I go vego.
For a month last year, I ate nothing but steamed vegies, fish and rice. For the first week, I just wanted to die; I was really struggling to stand / keep awake. Where was the protein yo? However, I felt so healthy and extremely alert in the following weeks! So, I decided to go and relive this health kick of mine this week by giving up coffee, meat and desserts. Monday was ok - I had a vegie stir...
Excellent service, decent food, decent prices (book on the D&D website for their £30pp 3 course + free glass of bellini offer). The place was nice but really lacking in atmosphere/mood. amuse bouche - parsley foam on a potato based soup - delicious chicken stuffed with shiitake mushrooms duck salad with blue cheese pork belly with mash sea bass with saffron foam caramelised...
We got there at 9pm on a saturday night and were told to wait outside - they closed the door on us. They gave the impression that they didnt care what you thought about their service, since they would have a stream of customers regardless - and they were right, the place was full. stir fried noodles in sa cha sauce pork slices - super salty black pepper beef As you can see, despite this...
Kim's SIFF Night Noodle Markets Awards
(Much more prestigious than the SMH Good Food Awards). It’s the second year that the Good Food Month has evidentally passed me by because of last minute assessments and looming exams. No sugar hits, progressive dinners or let’s do lunch! for me. (Whilst I tell myself, it’ll get better once I start full time work, I’ll be able to go to all the Good Food Month events!...
Sweet Infinity, The Strand.
Sweet, juicy strawberries and chocolate icing topped on a flourless chocolate cake slice $5.50 If you haven’t had flourless chocolate cake before, it’s pretty much a richer, less airy version of the normal chocolate cake. The strawberries were so sweet (perhaps artificially sweet but I don’t mind!) and helped to cut the richness of the cake. This dessert was heavenly!

Twelve Spices Thai & Lao Cuisine
Driving along St Johns Rd on a rainy night, a new restaurant caught our eye. So we chucked a u-turn and headed to Twelve Spices for dinner! Twelve Spices is really oddly located. You know your local corner store / milk bar (do people still have those these days?)? Well, that’s what this really neat restaurant is located next to, random corner stores, Home Hardware and opposite heaps of...
