Home made wholemeal pancakes with bacon, poached eggs, whipped butter and Canadian maple syrup. Thank you North America for inventing this yummy breakfast (although, we had this for a late lunch).

El Bulli

Nah, don't get excited. It isn't that El Bulli. I wish. Just a night out our local tapas joint in Surry Hills. Bastards kicked us out before dessert though. I was so looking forward to churros. Not our fault they didn't give us time to eat a proper meal. What we did have was pretty good though.
Ah, happy times before we were asked to leave

Holy crap! I can make mousse...

Chocolaty smooth rich mousse. And I did it all by myself. However I did ruin half a kilo of chocolate in the first attempt. No ponies ruined though (obscure Skullcrusher Mountain reference).
Home damned made chocolate mousse.

The mean streets of Redfern

A back alley in Redfern.

Beautiful Burgers

The name says it all. Beautiful Burgers. Good chips too. We had the Wagyu burger. Juicy as. And only 5 minutes walk from home.

Cafe Sicilia in Surry Hills

A new Sicilian restaurant and cafe has opened in Surry Hills. It's only been there a couple of months. The site was formerly a Thai restaurant. It had always been a Thai restaurant till now. I lived upstairs up until 15 years ago went it was the Thai Orchid. More recently, say the last 10 years or so, it was Yai. Let's just say living over the top of a Thai restaurant has its benefits. And cockroaches. But now it looks to be a fairly decent traditional Sicilian restaurant. The panini are great and so are the brioche, doughnuts and biscotti. Can't wait to have a proper sit down meal there.
