A restaurant with delicious food for sure, but what is extra special is to sit by the kitchen table and watch the intense coordination that brings the incredible dishes together. It was enlightening!
16 Foster St. Surry Hills NSW 2010, Australia.
This location is only steps away from the Ovolo Woolloomooloo hotel. I am still having withdrawal symptoms from their Australian pie, which is known to be one of the best. My niece and I agree.
A restaurant with a lovely view and deeeelicious, super fresh fare. I still crave it from all the way over here in Dubai!
Wulugul Walk,Barangaroo NSW 2000, Australia.
A fun way to experience the streets and neighborhoods of Melbourne. It's the kind of experience that’s touristy but still has the charming sense of stepping into a different time gone by. The food is good here too!

What a delightful, old-world classic. I love it when old establishments retain their excellence and elegance. The food was so fresh and of course, the Italian coffee was divine.
A raw cafe: in Hobart, Tasmania
I can’t remember the name of the lovely raw cafe that we happened upon in Hobart. So, it was a right from Dr. Coffee, then another right that ascends upwards towards another right onto a street with shops and cafes. That street has one of the best bakeries, we were heading there for pies hehe. The raw cafe is tiny and is just before the bakery, on the same side of the street.
A lovely small farm which mainly uses it’s produce to make ice cream. Each day, there are a few flavors to choose from, some local bush tucker flavors and some regular vanilla and strawberry varieties. The pathway leading from the entrance through to the shop is lined with the different trees labeled with their names. I am always impressed when I see care given to the teaching of the craft at hand.

It’s not easy to find good food on the 7 acres of land where the Daintree Forest meets the Great Barrier Reef. The best place we found was at the Cape Trib Beach House. It had simple choices that were well prepared.
This cafe had an interesting underground feel to its entrance and interiors. Very friendly service and perfection in the form of avo on toast.

Betty's Bohemian Beach Café: in Port Douglas
A cafe with flair that is obviously a labour of love from the owner. Betty was gracious and gave us some great tips at the beginning of our journey into the Daintree Forest.

Great coffee, very friendly service and certain nights have live music. It became one of my favorite spots in Sydney.
