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... 

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...

May Lane Newbies + Old Favourites

May Lane Newbies + Old Favourites
The May Lane Art Project is an amazing outdoor gallery space located in St Peters and I am a frequent visitor because it’s constantly changing and it’s a free art gallery that’s avaliable to everyone. There are five main panels that are positioned along the side of a building in May Lane and artists are invited to use the entire building as their canvas, or they can focus on the... 

Rosa’s Kitchen in Sydenham

Rosa's Kitchen in Sydenham
  This blog is long overdue as I visited Rosa’s Kitchen way back at the end of last year. I remember braving torrential rain to get there, but the great food and coffee was worth the rain soaked shoes. I indulged in Rosa’s Tasting Plate, which was fig and walnut sourdough with fresh ricotta, chill jam, tomato, avocado and a hot mini chorizo muffin! Sounds delicious, and it was! My... 

The History of a Wall

The History of a Wall
I am completely addicted to taking photos of street art and one of the reasons is because it is such a temporary artform. One day I will be walking past a completely blank wall, the next it is covered by an amazing design, the following day another artist has added to it and its possible that next week it could be completely painted over and be a blank canvas again. I have several locations and streets... 

Kuki Tanuki Japanese Bar, Erskineville

Kuki Tanuki Japanese Bar, Erskineville
I’m back! I’ve spent the last couple of months entertaining in-laws from overseas, taking them on an eating tour around Sydney and throughout the Inner West and have been an all-round tour guide extraordinaire. Well that’s my excuse for being a slacko in my posting and I’m sticking to it! Since food has been a major part of my Christmas and holiday break I thought I should... 

The Kick Inside, Erskineville

The Kick Inside, Erskineville
Earlier this week my sister and I were heading to King Street for a late lunch when the meatballs special on The Kick Inside chalkboard caught our eye and pulled us into the cafe. Meatballs wouldn’t be my usual pick on a Summer’s day in Sydney, but this Summer weather is proving to be anything but summery, so the meatballs were a perfect pick for this particular chilly day. I love a good...
