I normally write about new places I go to on this blog, but in this post I’m sharing a much-loved restaurant that my family and I go to over and over again – because it’s amazing!

Fratelli Paradiso in Potts Point (not to be confused by Fratelli Fresh down the road)

Chefs Gallery – Sydney CBD

piggy and eggy fairytale

So obviously I knew about Chefs Gallery because it’s been around for ages. And I think I’d been before but don’t quite remember when or how or why, or even what the food was like. All I know is that before Cardinal Spin invited me to go, I had always thought of Chefs Gallery as a lesser cousin of Din Tai Fung where you can get dumplings but they’re better at Din Tai Fung so you might as well go there.

Turns out I was completely wrong!

It’s been a while (I sadly realised) since I’d been to Yakitori Yurippi last. But lucky for me, Chef Tin invited us back to check out his winter menu a few weeks ago and it was truly epic. In fact, I was getting mega cravings for yakitori while preparing this post – hope you’re ready to drool!

Did you know that The Rocks Aroma Festival is on again on Sunday, July 24, 2016? It’s not just about that one day though – throughout the month of July there’s a whole lot of workshops that you can participate in all, of course, about coffee. There’s latte art, home brewing, coffee cocktails, and of course coffee cupping classes. I’m not much of a coffee drinker (I think copious amount of caffeine in my first year of university stuffed up my stomach a bit…) but I really wish I was able to drink it, and love anything that is made of coffee. So when the team at the Aroma Festival and Cardinal Spin invited me to come along to one of the Coffee Cupping Workshops, I eagerly went along, looking forward to learning more different coffee varietals and being able to spit out my coffee.

Cumulus Inc. – Melbourne CBD

We rocked up to Cumulus Inc. on a Sunday morning with the view to having brunch there – we should’ve known better. Rocking up at 11am was also not the best idea, considering the breakfast menu only goes til 11:30am and lunch starts at 12pm! Thankfully the lady at the door told us to just come back at lunch time, she would take our names now and we’d be seated immediately when we came back.

Industry Beans – Fitzroy, Melbourne

I don’t remember exactly where we heard about Industry Beans, but we heard it was good coffee, good food and a cool space, not to mention in the cool neighbourhood of Fitzroy, so we had to check it out.

(We also went to Kettle Black on our recent trip to Melbourne, if you’re interested!)
