When you go to Manly Beach by boat you arrive at the Manly Wharf where you will find Papi Chulo. This new restaurant, with a North & South American cuisine, comes from the guys at Merivale, a restaurant group in Sydney who are also responsible for Mr Wong and Palings for example.

TRIED & TESTED: THE GROUNDS OF ALEXANDRIA SYDNEY

April 1st, 2014

thegroundsofalexandria

Most striking feature:

A complete cafe-experience with a stunning design. The Grounds of Alexandria was one of the places I wanted to visit as soon as I landed in Sydney because I wanted to see the interior of this fantastic cafe. Not knowing that it’s definitely more than just a cafe: it’s an experience complete with a terrace, a take-away coffee corner, a market on Saturday, yoga-lessons, a new building in development and a pig named Kevin Bacon. Whenever you’re there it’s always full of people: with or without kids. Kids love it here too because of the animals and the tiny little animal farm on site. When I visited there was a line of people waiting for their good coffee, but I didn’t join them because I wanted to have breakfast here. I’ve ordered eggs on toast with banana cake with it and I didn’t have to eat for hours after that: I was stuffed – in a good way because it was al so delicious. The manager gave me a tour of the property and I’ve learned that Read more…

qtsydney

Most striking feature:

The location. The QT Sydney is located right in the center of the city: perfectly located if you not only want to visit the center, but love to explore other area’s such as Surry Hills and Bondi Beach too. Because you just grab a metro and you’re good to go. The QT is open for a few years now and it’s part of the designhotels.com group. They also have properties in Port Douglas, on the Gold Coast, in Falls Creek and they recently announced their new opening in Canberra.

You’re being welcomed on street level by a girl with a red wig who Read more…

SYDNEY WEEK ON PETITE PASSPORT

March 31st, 2014

sydneyweekpp

I really enjoyed my time in Sydney. One of the most beautiful cities on earth. The sun is always shining, every moment of the day you can just pick up your things and go to a beach like Bondi or Manly and the hotspots are fantastic. I texted my boyfriend the first day: ‘You can’t believe it but I’ve got the whole Sydney Week covered in just a few hours’. That was mainly because I walked through Surry Hills where you will find one good cafe after the other. But don’t forget to go to Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: LEMON MIDDLE ORANGE MELBOURNE

March 22nd, 2014

lemonmiddleorangemelbourne

Most striking feature:

The take-away coffee bar in the front of the restaurant. Near Mina-no-ie, in the district of Collingwood, you’ll find Lemon, Middle and Orange. If you stand on the other side of the street you will notice a modern building in between old warehouses and garages. The building is designed by John Wardle Architects and he’s the owner of the property as well. So upstairs they design the most ingenious houses (for example: this house was awarded with a Robin Boyd Award and it’s every one’s dream to live there) and downstairs there’s a cafe they designed too. Lemon, Middle and Orange is a place where you can have breakfast and lunch or grab a coffee to go. You can order inside, but Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: YO-CHI YOGURT MELBOURNE

March 21st, 2014

yochiyogurtmelbourne

Most striking feature:

Normally you think of a yogurt bar as a small, narrow space, but Yo-Chi yogurt is located in a huge building. In the neighbourhood called Carlton, where you will also find the cool Baker D. Chiroco. It’s an area where many young families live as well as students because the University is here too. Anyway, back to Yo-Chi. After the success of their establishment in Balaclava, they opened this one a few months ago. In the back you can grab a cone and choose one of the many flavors. All of them being 98% fat free and made of natural ingredients, some of them or gluten-free, vegan or dairy-free. Choose the Signature Tart for a natural flavor or go Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: BARRY MELBOURNE

March 20th, 2014

barrymelbourne

Most striking feature:

The counter made of wooden drawers. Barry is a new cafe in Northcote, a district in the north of Melbourne. It is actually located in between Fitzroy and Brunswick and the boy who works here told me it’s an upcoming neighbourhood. Barry is the place for a coffee-to-go where you can read the newspaper while you wait, or for breakfast or lunch. I’ve tried the fried eggs and it was so yummy. A really Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: RUYI MELBOURNE

ruyimelbourne

Most striking feature:

The most beautiful Chinese restaurant I have ever seen. Around the corner from the Ovolo Hotel and just outside Chinatown you’ll find Ruyi, a new restaurant with a stunning interior. It means ‘as you wish’ (see the Chinese characters with that meaning on the ground at the entrance). The restaurant is owned by Qian Qian and Sheng Fan, two Australians with their roots in China. The kitchen is Chinese, but Read more…

Fonda Mexican

Most striking feature:

They have a marinated kangaroo salad on the menu. How’s that for some exotic flavor? Fonda Mexican is a Mexican restaurant on the happening Chapel Street in Windsor. There’s also a Fonda Mexican in Richmond and soon they will open a new one in the CDB. On the menu you will find many Mexican dishes that take you back to your holiday in Mexico (in my case to my stay at Papaya Playa Project in Tulum last month). From quesadillas to burritos and from tacos to a delicious Read more…
