New podcast – Matt Swieboda, Waterman’s Lobster Co

With Waterman’s Lobster Co in Potts Point, Matt Swieboda wanted to create the “Mary’s … of lobster roll places”. Here, Matt not only serves the classic American dish in both the Maine and Connecticut styles, but even includes a vegetarian egg-nori version that unexpectedly teleports you to Japan. (This roll is a delicious butter-mayo bomb, […]

Cho Cho San, Potts Point

Cho Cho San in Potts Point opened last week to such mega-wattage interest – I’m surprised that a power surge and blackout didn’t immediately follow in the area. You could trace this highly-charged reception through the fast-breaking write-ups this new izakaya received – it was covered in SMH Good Food, Gourmet Traveller, Two Thousand, Broadsheet, […]

Kim Restaurant, Potts Point

Having an incredibly common Korean name might seem like a surefire way to blend in, but Kim Restaurant in Potts Point stands out in many impressive ways. It’s a new venture by David Ralph (Flying Fish, Kakawa Chocolates) and Tae Kyu Lee (Mr Wong, Ms Gs), who both share impressive CVs and a not-so-common denominator […]

Yellow, Potts Point

When both Time Out Sydney and Gourmet Traveller make an open-and-shut case about how great the weekend brunch is at Yellow in Potts Point, then it’s hard to find a watertight excuse for not going. An overtaxed diary and inability to find a free table are the only plausible defences available. As if you’d want to […]

Harajuku Gyoza, Potts Point

Walk into a Japan restaurant, and you’ll instantly hear “Irasshaimase!” upon arrival. At the new Harajuku Gyoza in Potts Point, this greeting is ramped up to rock-star levels. The overloud cheers are quite something – the staff really amp it up and stretch out the catchcry, like it’s a break-out chorus at karaoke. It’s fun to […]

Monopole, Potts Point

Monopole, Potts Point

Monopole in Potts Point is a small space (so watch your elbows), but it’s still generous on flavours and ideas. It’s the new venture for Brent Savage, Nick Hildebrandt and Glen Goodwin, the creative forces behind the brilliant, two-hatted Bentley restaurant in Surry Hills. Last week, Monopole opened in the old Sailor’s Thai site; into […]

Santa Barbara, Potts Point

Santa Barbara, Potts Point

The Santa Barbara you find in Potts Point is not like the one that appears in maps of California. The latest venture for the Drink N Dine group (Queenie’s, The Carrington, The Abercrombie) audaciously redirects American cuisine by taking left-turn swerves into Asian territory. So there’s Char Sui Ribs ($18), Salt N Pepa Crab ($16), […]

Gastro Park, Potts Point

Gastro Park in Potts Point converts each plate on your table into a playground – ingredients flirt with the colour wheel and inspire stomach-flips and early-childhood thrills. Surprise textures and flavours are part of the adventure. This is the new restaurant for Grant King, who was head chef at the acclaimed Pier. From the Ralph […]

Ms G’s, Potts Point

Ms G’s, Potts Point

Just when the scorecard was already looking good for 2010, Ms G’s comes along and bumps the average up even higher. This year, Sydney’s been lucky to welcome so many brilliant newcomers (Berta, Duke Bistro, Bloodwood, Porteno, to name some of the fresh blood) and this place ends 2010 on a pretty dizzy note. Ms […]

Room 10, Potts Point

Room 10, Potts Point

My first introduction to Room 10 in Potts Point was via Twitpic. Last week, Good Living contributor Carli Ratcliff snapped an image, pitched it onto Twitter and talked up the new cafe’s “cracking brekky” and “sensational brews”. Only three weeks old, this XS-sized joint is a new venture for Daniel Jackson, who you may recognise […]

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.

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