Ding Tai Fung – Truffle Xiao Long Bao

I love Ding Tai Fung. DTF = Outstanding quality, reasonable prices and consistent standard. It is one of my favourite meal places. Truffle Xiao Long Bao (with DTF’s signature 18 intricate folds) – This is sinfully good but after the second piece, the taste became overwhelming. I guess I prefer my truffles on fries. The truffles wereRead More

[Sydney] Double Roaster – Worth a Double Visit

Located in Marrickville (a place once known for its array of vietnamese eateries that has since evolved to become home of many great cafes), Double Roasters is primarily known for its awesome/aromatic freshly roasted beans.

Caphe East Vietnamese Cuisine – Over & Over Again

The Big Sheila – More Chic-Chic Lunches to Come
