The Ledbury, London

Experiencing a meal at a Michelin-starred restaurant is a dream for any serious foodie. This is particularly so for us here down under, as dining a la Michelin necessitates overseas travel: the guide has so far snubbed our southern shores. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect in a ‘star quality’ restaurant. Would it be comparable to the widely accepted Fairfax […]

Fad diets. Anyone with half a brain knows that they usually aren’t quite as healthy as they claim; sometimes they can even be quite unhealthy, if not dangerous (the lemon detox diet comes to mind here). The Paleo movement is one such fad which has developed a rather cult-like following over the last couple of years. Based […]

Burger Inc., Geelong

Burger Inc., Geelong

The rather highly rated Burger Inc. flashed up on my radar when I was recently looking for a feed in Geelong. The menu was quite extensive – almost too extensive – for a place that only sells one thing; the curious numbering, rather than naming, of menu items only made that fact more obvious. I’m […]

Belgium is a bit of an interesting country. Consisting of Dutch (Flemish) and French regions and having both languages listed as official languages, both country’s influences are also noticeable in the culinary landscape. So what is Belgian food exactly? Le Pain Quotidien Galerie de la reine 11 (Galeries St Hubert) This bakery was apparently started […]

Paris – a food roundup

It goes without saying that Paris is well and truly a foodie haven. However, navigating the city’s dining scene can be a daunting task for the non-French speaking traveller. It’s hard enough trying to choose which of the thousands of establishments you will choose to patron during your short stay in any large city, let […]

Bistrotters

Dear readers, I must apologise for my recent hiatus. WordPress tells me it’s been 6 weeks since my last post – and even prior to that, my posting frequency had dropped significantly from the diligent twice-weekly schedule I used to maintain. I have found myself doing a lot of travel, for work and otherwise (yes, I […]

Shanghai Food – a tour

When travelling, sampling some of the local cuisine is a must – especially for a foodie like me. Problem is, researching out what to try or where to go can be time-consuming, and actually finding the places can be troublesome. Most small shops don’t have websites or entries on Urbanspoon or Tripadvisor. Prior to Shanghai […]
