Little Loco

IMG_9767Going a Little Loco
This neat little space has seen several occupants in the last few years –
I’m hoping Little Loco will stay!

IMG_9769A light filled space with a minimalistic finish,
this is a cosy little nook to partake in some slow living.
(Oh and they stock great magazines!).

As none of us are sweet tooths, we didn’t get to try their epic
banoffee hotcakes that has received a lot of love via social media.

IMG_9777Wild mushrooms ragu with mushroom foam, rye, pecorino, truffle honey & free range poached eggs.
The truffle was luxuriously fragrant and rich – an impeccable pairing with the toasted rye.
The poached eggs were a little over cooked, but otherwise delicious!

IMG_9782The Green Bowl
With kale, spinach, asparagus, broccolini, feta,
cherry tomatoes, avocado & pistachio
A refreshing and healthy start to the day

IMG_9793If you’re swept up in the recent bao-fever, try their Breakfast Burger,
with bacon, fried egg, smoked tomato relish, mature cheddar,
avo on a toasted polenta brioche bun

Locavore Café

When balancing a full time job and freelance projects, something’s gotta give…
and that has been my blogging!

Have been meaning to get out to all the new venues happening around Brissy,
(often I find myself there without my camera, but armed with ze Instagram haha)
and our latest discovery is Locavore Café!

A light-filled, cosy space tucked under the Quest Woolloongabba apartments,
this little cafe is the epitome of doing simple things exceptionally well.

Sourcing delicious ingredients & produce from within a 160km radius,
Locavore purveys a humble menu filled with nutritious meals and scrumptious bites.
It’s wonderful to be able to pinpoint exactly where your food comes from,
and knowing that all the food is locally produced and have only come within a short distance!

Nomad

Another unmissable restaurant when you’re in Sydney is Nomad,
nestled in the uber hip suburb of Surry Hills.

Brought to us by Rebecca Littlemore and her partner Al Yazbek
(former Toko owners – another one of my favs.)
Nomad is a gorgeous restaurant and cellar,
celebrating the best of local & regional produce and wines.

A large, warehouse space with stripped back brick walls and polished concrete,
Scandinavian-inspired, smooth blond wood furniture,
fire logs packed walls, and rows and rows of decorative pickles-
this light-filled space is the perfect venue to enjoy great food with even great company.

IMG_9095I’m instantly drawn to the large inked skull by the talented C. J. Hendry

The seasonal menu is a well-curated spread of interesting, contemporary dishes with Middle-Eastern accents.
Designed for sharing, their housemade breads, cheeses and charcuterie is a must-try!
