Anason @ Sydney

Barangaroo is an urban renewal project, of land that was once a significant area of Sydney’s shipping and stevedoring history. The maritime history of this prime real estate on the stunning Sydney Harbour has been closed off to the public for more than 100 years. Anason is the first permanent restaurant at Barangaroo and is…

Yok Yor @ Sydney

Went back to Sydney after a long trip around China and Melbourne. Wanted something spicy. Yok Yor came to mind with their authentic Issan-influenced Thai food.

Meat & Wine Co @ Circular Quay

The Meat & Wine Co is intimate and sophisticated inside the heritage-listed hotel, where contemporary interior design paired with subtle African influences make the restaurant enticingly unique.

Doyle’s Seafood @ Watson Bay

Located on the beautiful Watson Bay and a 20min ferry ride from Circular Quay (F7 to North Shores), there’s this little gem called Doyle’s. Once you get to the place, do not get mixed up with their fish and chips stand and a beach club next to it.

Postales @ The Westin GPO Sydney

In a recent trip to Sydney, I chanced upon this hole in the wall inside The Westin that served a decent tapas. Usually I do not eat in the hotel, but arriving late and tired, I decided not to venture far. Freshly-shucked oysters sounded good so I decided to walk in.
