Cornersmith in Marrickville

Cornersmith in Marrickville
Last weekend I finally made it to Conersmith in Marrickville for breakfast. I’ve had several takeaway coffees and an absolutely delicous muffin since it has opened, but having heard nothing but great reviews about their food I wanted to try it for myself. The lines of people queuing up to get in on a weekend is also a pretty good indication that this cafe is worth visting. So on Sunday I bit...

Food trucks are finally hitting the streets of Sydney and the Inner West!
Click on this image to go to the Time Out Food Truck Locator   Food trucks are finally coming to Sydney! They are already popular in  LA, New York, London and other major cities around Australia but Sydney is finally joining the food truck party. The great news is that one of the locations for the food trucks is likely to be in the Inner West, probably Sydney Park in Alexandria! That’s... 

Norton Plaza Community Kitchen Garden

Norton Plaza Community Kitchen Garden
While walking around Norton Plaza I often noticed signs referring to the Norton Plaza Community Kitchen Garden located on the rooftop. It wasn’t until my mum came to visit that I actually decided to explore the garden. After misreading a sign and trying to go up a fire exit we found the lift and took it to level 2. At first it’s a bit disorientating because you enter the sterile business side... 

Pickwicks in Enmore

Pickwicks in Enmore
We are all in such a hurry these days, we need to slow down and enjoy that bottle of red over a gorgeous meal. Pickwicks is the place to do it! An intimate venue with loads of character on Enmore Road. I have been walking by this restaurant since it opened without trying it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Saturday night the planets aligned and 3 of us got together for dinner. First stop was the bottleshop... 

Movie Review: Headhunters, now showing at Dendy Newtown

Movie Review: Headhunters, now showing at Dendy Newtown
Where to begin with Headhunters? I went in knowing nothing about it, and the experience was all the better for it. I had a blast. But, for the purposes of this review, I’ll have to reveal a little in my attempts to persuade you all to see it. It is a Norwegian thriller directed by Morten Tyldum and adapted from the best-selling 2008 novel by internationally acclaimed crime novelist, Jo Nesbo. The... 

Rumour or Fact: Dunlop Slazenger Factory demolished?

Rumour or Fact: Dunlop Slazenger Factory demolished?
Last week a fellow street art enthustiast commented on an old post I wrote about the Dunlop Slazenger Factory which caused me to hit the panic button. They said they had heard the factory had been torn down!!! It is such an amazing space for street artists to experiment with and showcase their styles that I immediatley headed over to see if the rumour was true. I forget (intentionally avoided) telling... 

Jolly Cafe, Leichhardt

Jolly Cafe, Leichhardt
Hi Inner Westies, I want to introduce our Guest Blogger Ashleigh. She has recently moved to the beautiful suburb of Leichhardt and will be sharing her exploration of the area with us. I don’t visit Leichhardt nearly enough so I’m excited to hear about places to check out. I moved to Leichhardt just over a month ago. This is where my dad grew up and he has often lead me and my family on... 

Perfect weather for a movie! Movie Review: ‘A Separation’, now showing at Dendy Newtown

Perfect weather for a movie! Movie Review: 'A Separation', now showing at Dendy Newtown
A Separation, written and directed by Asghar Farhadi, early in 2011 became the first Iranian film to win the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival. It also picked up Silver Bears for its wonderful ensemble cast. Just this week, it won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. This compelling masterpiece (and there is no other way to describe it), though relatively subtle and simple in its plot...
