New zine: Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry 2015 edition

Here’s a new zine! It’s an update of last year’s The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry publication and I created it for the recent MCA Zine Fair. Consider it a snack-sized version of this blog and or a neat track listing of my favourite places to eat and drink in Sydney. It can multitask as […]

The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry zine

I made a new zine – it’s a snack-sized version of The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry. Created for the recent MCA Zine Fair; it compiles many of my favourite places to eat and drink in Sydney. It’s a bread-crumb-trail through the city that can multitask as a short guide for an out-of-towner or a […]

My Japan zine

My Japan zine

Major thanks (and a Tokyo-Skytree-sized “Arigatō”) to all the lovely people who picked up a copy of my Japan zine at the MCA Zine Fair on Sunday. If you couldn’t make it and you’re zine-curious, you can now order the issue online. There’s a little spiel about it here, but if that doesn’t quite meet […]

Japan zine, MCA Zine Fair

Japan zine, MCA Zine Fair

My zine is now available online here. Things I’ve learned from making my zine on Japan: ramen vans are the country’s equivalent of ice-cream vans (complete with ramen-van theme song), Kit Kat flavours are oddly educational (like an edible Wikipedia of Japanese customs) and there’s a bakery in Tokyo that has a seven-year wait for […]

Feast Your Eyes and Pot Luck

Hey, here’s a shameless mention of a few things I’m part of. If you turn up to Feast Your Eyes, you’ll find a bar recipe booklet with contributions by Levins (The Dip), Spod, We Buy Your Kids, Jake Stone, Elmo Keep and many more; some of the accompanying illustrations will be available as artwork; there’ll […]

My food zine

Sorry for the accidental blog hibernation – I’ve been crazy-busy cranking out copies of my latest zine, which is about food. If you’re at all zine-curious, this issue features a ton of great people in it, including interviews with Lemonpi, Nick Palumbo of Gelato Messina, Angie Schiavone of Everyday Eats, Levins of The Dip and […]

After the MCA Zine Fair

After the MCA Zine Fair

I’ve been in zine-making hibernation for the last few weeks – which explains the less-than-speedy blog updates (sorry for being such a lazybones). It was all for the MCA Zine Fair, which was on last Sunday, so I can now resume my normal sleeping/procrastinating/blogging patterns. If you’re zine-curious, mine (Speak-easy #11) had a Frenchy theme […]

Dawn Tan’s Sydney food zine

Dawn Tan’s Sydney food zine

Food preservative is kind of a dirty word, but when we’re talking about watercolours, then it’s not likely to lead to parental frowns or dangerously wound-up children. Melbourne artist Dawn Tan has a lovely habit of recording what she’s eaten with line drawings and paintbrushes. I first discovered the work of Melbourne artist Dawn Tan […]

2-D Food (and see you at the MCA Zine Fair)

2-D Food (and see you at the MCA Zine Fair)

With every free second devoted to finishing my zine for next Sunday’s MCA Zine Fair, the food blog is a little cupboard-bare at the moment, I admit. I’m still scurrying around trying to complete the zine, but in the meantime, I thought I’d direct your eye to some cool food-related things my super-creative friends have […]

About

Hi, I'm Lee Tran Lam. When not blogging with my mouth full, I'm usually writing, presenting Local Fidelity on FBi radio, making zines, producing podcasts or continually breaking promises about how I really am gonna get through my book pile one day.

All the good pictures on this blog are by photography ace (and patient boyfriend), Will Reichelt, (all the dodgy ones can be credited to me)!

The lovely banner is by friend and ultra-talented illustrator Grace Lee.

This site redesign was made possible by the next-level generosity and expertise of Daniel Boud, whose code-tinkering ways are only outranked by his seriously inspired way with a camera.

You can read more about my co-conspirators here.

This is a blog I do for pure fun and zero influence – there's no sponsorship, sneaky advertorial or advertising. I pay for all the food mentioned, 'cos it seems the ethical thing to do.


About

This is a blog about eating and drinking in Sydney, Australia (with the odd cross-border or off-topic detour). BYO appetite.
