Sydney’s Best Burgers – Mary’s

*** FEATURED IN CITY HUB – BEST OF SYDNEY 2015 *** My favourite type of burger (and the best type, because I’m always right), consists of a meat patty, American style cheese, a pickle, and a killer bun. Sometimes bacon. No egg. No pineapple. No beetroot. Got it? Good. It’s simplicity (like a good Pizza)… Continue reading

Sydney’s Best Pizza – Lucio Pizzeria

*** FEATURED IN CITY HUB – BEST OF SYDNEY 2015 *** As a self proclaimed Pizza Nazi, I find it difficult to dine at places that don’t serve proper Neapolitan Pizza. The ones that do (and do it well), tend to be knighted with the ever-coveted AVPN seal of approval (Google it, I’m sick of… Continue reading

The graffiti plastered courtyard creates a salubrious environment to… Continue reading

These reflections are quickly quashed over a glass… Continue reading

But who am I to pass up the opportunity to attend Anna Polyviou’s increasingly popular ‘Sweet Street’ sugar festival? Some of Australia’s evilest of geniuses get together once a year to create and collaborate over some… Continue reading

Basement 33

Amidst the hustle and bustle of Goulburn Street’s Haymarket end, is nestled a brand new hidden bar gem – worthy of any nightlife veteran’s attention. At present, the entrance looks like a cross between an underground karaoke bar (which I’m later told it once was!) and a Thai massage parlour – although the delights found… Continue reading
