The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry | A Sydney Food Blog

Pretty Pretty Yum Yum (again)

May 8th, 2009  |  Published in Uncategorized  |  2 Comments

Amy’s Pretty Pretty Yum Yum covers the highlighter-bright spectrum of food and fashion in Japan and is definitely one of my favourite blogs.

Whether it features the delightfully weird (like Salty Chocolate Crunch or all-mayo restaurants) or just monumentally cute (smiley face ice cream, turtle-shaped bread), Pretty Pretty Yum Yum always manages to add a little spark to your day.

I was lucky enough to quiz Amy for our blog at work – you can check it out here. Her answers about Japan’s food, fashion and hyper-colourful aesthetics are really great – I love what she says about the Banana Diet, the character of Osaka, the strangest things she’s eaten (kimchi lemonade, anyone?) and the most delightful items she’s seen while living in this iconic country. (Amy also takes gorgeous photos, as you can see from these two originating from her blog.)

If you haven’t already, you should totally check out Pretty Pretty Yum Yum. It’s nice to be able to fall down the rabbit hole of colourful Japanese cuisine and fashion on such a regular basis.

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.
