Lankan Filling Station

Having been to Sri Lanka more than 10 years ago, still to this day one of the stand outs for me was the delicious food I sampled. One might describe Sri Lankan cuisine as a fusion of flavours from its historical background, including influences from […]

Dear Sainte Eloise

Dear Sainte Eloise

We love that Sydney has so many amazing lane-way wine bars to try and a notable addition to the list is Dear Sainte Eloise in Potts Point.

Opening its doors in mid-2017 by the owners of Love Tilly Devine and Macardo, Dear Sainte Eloise offers a sophisticated setting to enjoy the creative food menu and extensive wine list that boasts 300+ wines (that’s heaven to us).

We perched ourselves at the window seats and this was an amazing place to watch the colourful neighbourhood of Potts Point walk by.

The interior of Dear Sainte Eloise is minimalistic with muted dark colours, complemented by concrete finishes and dark timber.

After ordering a bottle of one of the delicious, reasonably priced Pinot Noirs, we sampled the zucchini flowers with romesco and pecorino, as well as the burrata with pickled nectarine and roquette oil for entree and these dishes were both very flavoursome. The nectarine was a lovely sweet complement to the burrata and the pecorino in the zucchini flowers was a welcome change to the usual goats cheese.

For main, we decided upon the Pacific Reef Cobia with farro, celery and saffron yoghurt and the Cowra lamb chops with charred peppers and horseradish. These dishes were well balanced and fresh in flavour with quality produce used.

Dear Sainte Eloise is a fantastic little wine bar to unwind, watch the world go by and enjoy a quality dining experience.

Mamptons… the male version of Hamptons Style

Mamptons… the male version of Hamptons Style

The Hamptons is the playground of the wealthy in New York and traditionally the style is very white and beige, with interesting textures and a nautical theme, but overall, quite a neutral colour palette that provides the feeling of relaxed coastal comfort. But if the […]

Eastside Kitchen & Bar Review

Eastside Kitchen & Bar Review

The new Eastside Kitchen & Bar in Chippendale draws inspiration and is a fusion of dining from many places around the world including Hong Kong, Japan and New York.

Located on the uber trendy Kensington Street precinct, Eastside Kitchen & Bar offers a stylish environment away from the hustle and bustle of the city to enjoy some great hospitality in a funky, relaxed atmosphere.

The menu at Eastside Kitchen & Bar offers contemporary dishes with a modern twist from a range of cultures to suit all tastes. Tasty starter dishes include chicken karaage with chili & yuzu kewpie, angus beef tartare with pickled beets & rice crisps, and grilled asparagus with chives vinaigrette & burrata to name a few.

On the more substantial side, the grilled cauliflower steak with harissa, chick peas, & toasted hazelnuts is fantastic, or the whiskey-brined berkshire pork loin with home-cured kimchee & polenta definitely hits the spot. The menu is creative and whilst it isn’t overly extensive, the dishes are done very well and we thoroughly enjoyed everything we sampled.

The beverage menu offers cocktails, craft beers and an extensive wine and spirits menu. Pricing is reasonable and there is a great selection of wine to choose from that caters to all budgets.

This place is definitely worth checking out so be sure to add it to your list!
