The best non-alcoholic drinks in Sydney

You no longer have to cosy up to a bottle of lemonade or keep re-ordering Coke if you’re after a booze-free night out. Many top restaurants are now offering inventive drinks for people who are skipping the alcohol for health, religious, philosophical and I-don’t-want-to-lose-my-provisional-licence reasons. I wrote about this recently for Good Food, covering the […]

New podcast – Ben Greeno, The Paddington, Merivale

“There’s no $10 steak, that’s for sure,” says Ben Greeno. There’s nothing standard-issue about his upcoming ventures with Merivale, which is no surprise – Ben is far from a standard-issue chef. (In fact, there’s question about whether The Paddington – the ‘pub’ he’s opening for the hospitality group – is even actually a pub. And […]

Automata, Chippendale

You’ve already seen the raves blowing up your Instagram screen. Automata may have only opened recently in Chippendale, but the restaurant is already straight-out-of-the gate awesome. It’s like an incredible time-lapse trick, the way Clayton Wells’ solo venture for The Old Clare Hotel has fast-tracked itself to greatness so quickly. My friend Shannon even announced […]

New podcast – Richard Hargreave, Momofuku Seiobo

This interview is definitely a contender for one of my favourite podcasts so far. Earlier this week, I talked to Richard Hargreave of Momofuku Seiobo about his upcoming Sunday Wine Sessions and his many uncorked adventures. I brought along some Bourke Street Bakery tarts (under the pretence it was “brain food”) and Richard proved to […]

Sydney Good Food Awards 2013

As I write this, there are probably Sydney Good Food Award-winners still toasting their victories and (rightfully) testing how much celebrating their liver can take. There was a whirlwind of new hatted entries at this year’s event (and, accordingly, in the new 2013 edition of the Good Food Guide) – major congrats to all of […]

2011 favourites

With everyone hitting memory lane at the moment, I thought I’d follow the same, well-worn path and revisit some favourite food experiences of 2011. The year has unlatched many great surprises, from the Three-Milk Cake at El Capo – the Ryan Gosling of desserts, because it somehow becomes even more good-looking everytime you see it […]

Momofuku Seiobo, The Star, Pyrmont

Momofuku Seiobo, The Star, Pyrmont

There was megawatt hype surrounding Momofuku Seiobo before it even opened a few weeks ago, and the restaurant didn’t so much quietly launch as blast off. With supercharged interest in David Chang’s new Sydney venture – his first outside his New York empire – every minor move and detail was reported on before diners even […]

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.
