Cuckoo Callay Cover

Cuckoo Callay [New Menu] | Newtown

When Cuckoo Callay first shot through an invite to their Bacon Festival (yes, it totally happened and I didn’t just imagine it), I actually contemplated on saying no. If there were ever a time to torch my inbox with hate mail, that would have been it. Thankfully, I was made to see the light, thereupon getting myself porked on eight bacon dishes. In other words, a normal Saturday.

Now, the bacon festival is over. A sad day for sure, however fret not – where there’s a Yin, there must be Yang. Cuckoo Callay’s new menu has arrived, and with my crew Isaac @ iFat, Anna @ Polyphagia & the Lady in tow, we were set to create our own festival right there on the table. It may be a bit Cuckoo, but it’s right up my all-ay.

Aqua S Cover

Aqua S Ice Cream Parlour | Sydney CBD

As I see it, Aquaman is a very underrated superhero. Sure, his abilities amount to little more than telepathy and the usual suite of enhanced physiology while in the water, but that’s still cause for envy from someone who struggles to stay afloat in the water. The funny thing about Aquaman is that because he’s so widely ridiculed, he’s become more well-known than most other B-grade Marvel heroes.

Aqua S is like an improved Aquaman – as standout as ever thanks to its distinct hue, possesses superpowers [citation needed], and best of all, it’s famous because it’s actually a pretty sweet-tasting soft serve.

No wonder this is currently the most Instagrammed food in Sydney at the moment.

Cafe Cre Asion Cover

Cafe Cre Asion | Sydney CBD

Did you know green is my favourite colour? No, of course you didn’t – this isn’t an “ask me anything” Tumblr page. But while we’re on the topic, let’s talk about matcha (a specific type of green tea powder). It can be drunk, made into desserts, or just about anything really – its versatility is bound only by one’s imagination. In sweet treats, its complex flavour has no replacement.

Enter Cafe Cre Asion. In the span of less than four weeks, it has become one of my favourite cafes in Sydney. Matcha lovers? Welcome the Cre Asion invasion.

Date Last Visited: 5/6/15
Address: 21 Alberta Street, CBD, Sydney, NSW
Recommended Dish(es): matcha latte, matcha fondant, matcha & macadamia cookies, braised pork neck sandwich

Cafe Morso Cover

Cafe Morso | Pyrmont

Whatever you think of him, you owe Henry Ford some gratitude. After all, he was the one that introduced the concept of a two-day weekend into modern working society, back when it was only one. The things you learn when reading a food blog, right?

Why is this relevant? Two days = at least two chances for cafe hopping. It’s been awhile since I’ve done a proper round of cafe breakfasts/brunches, but I’m glad that when I found the time to get back into it, I found quality in almost no time at all. Thanks for that, Cafe Morso!

Best Ramen in Sydney Cover

The Best Ramen in Sydney

Winter has arrived and with it, all the fevers, colds and thick folds of coats. There are many ways to combat the scourge of Jack Frost, but one option stands tall amongst the madness of methods: the humble bowl of ramen.

I’m here to help you decide one thing, and one thing only: the best ramen in Sydney. Seventeen ramen shops, seventeen(+) bowls of ramen, 1.5 months of crawling, one objective reviewer. Let me be your ramen shaman, and I will show you the light.

I’m Still Hungry In Hong Kong | Cheap Feeds

Hong Kong. If you thought Sydney had a lot going for it, you should check this place out. A metropolis with a population density seventeen times that of Sydney, it’s like being on a Sydney train at peak hour, except everywhere you go in Hong Kong. However, any traveller worth their salt will travel to Hong Kong at least once. If you’re a foodie, you might not stop at just once.

Did you know The Lady and I travelled to Hong Kong for a few days over December last year? You’d be forgiven if you weren’t aware – no details were shared on social media. We all know that if you didn’t see it on Instagram or the blog, then I didn’t eat it. That’s how the arrangement goes, right? Thus, I’m going to bust that myth, one photo at a time.

Let’s just say that “I’m Still Hungry” isn’t a phrase I was saying by the end of the trip. Without further ado, onto the food!

Period of Visit: December 2014

Devon on Danks Cover

[Updated] Devon on Danks | Waterloo

You didn’t think it was just Devon Cafe Surry Hills that gets the new menu treatment, did you? It’s I’m Still Hungry, not I’m Still Lazy. If I was going to do a Devon update, I am going to do a Devon update. And that means covering Devon on Danks as well. Yep, they’ve updated their menu too, because if there’s anything resembling a constant, it’s that Sydneysiders have the itchiest of feet when it comes to food.

How do you scratch the itchy feet of a Sydney foodie? You keep your menu fresh and that’ll keep them coming back. How do you think Aqua S manages to do such a number on me? With that in mind, what does head honcho Zacharay Tan have in store to hook us in? Quite a lot, it turns out!

Devon Cafe Surry Hills Cover

[Updated] Devon Cafe | Surry Hills

For someone who rarely visits the same place more than twice, Devon’s a bit of an outlier at over ten visits. Ten! A combination of good food and a proximity close to Central station has helped its case greatly. It’s undoubtedly true that Devon Cafe has nailed a rare mix of quality food and convenience. The fact that Devon’s a favourite haunt for many of my friends doesn’t hurt either.

My last update on Devon was all the way back in 2014. That’s a long time ago. Heck, an entirely new Devon has popped up in the interim. However, the original is by no means a slouch. With a new menu out, Devon Cafe is out to prove the OG still has plenty going for it. Let’s see what they’ve got in store!

Taiwan Soul Food Cover

Taiwan Soul Food | Sydney CBD

Winter is the season when most people give up sucking in their stomachs, pretending to have abs while strolling down the beach. It’s the season when people are five times more likely to give in to that slice of cake sitting in front of them. Maybe the whole cake. For me, it’s the season I begin hunting for a perfect, hearty bowl of soup.

There’s nothing quite like it to warm up the body and soul on a cold day. When abs are no longer priority #1, I let laksa, ramen and hot stews take over. For that reason, I  most welcome Taiwan Soul Food to the fold.

Newly opened in late March/early April this year, this new kid on the block is making waves with its herby, robust broth. Oh, did I mention the eighty+ ingredients you can customise to your liking? Read on!

Yang's Food Truck Cover

Yang’s Malaysian Food Truck | Sydney

Do any of you guys remember Eat Art Truck? It was one of the first food trucks to roll out onto Sydney’s roads. Hosting ex-chefs of Tetsuya’s, it was bigger than a mere meals on wheels.

It’s also three years old! Imagine that – three years since the food truck scene exploded onto Sydney’s…well…anywhere, really. Anywhere where they can get a permit to park and run a service. We now have trucks that do everything from Italian to Mexican, from Vietnamese to French, and even Yum Cha. While some of these trucks serve cuisine that almost naturally lend themselves to “street level eats”, I personally cannot believe we lack one of the cuisines with the most street cred of all – Malaysian.

Get your act together, Sydney: it’s only taken three years, but enter Yang’s Malaysian Food Truck. Finally, we’ve got legit street food, served street-style. Get your app ready, we’re going food truck hunting.
