John and Peter Canteen, Carriageworks

If you’re on friendly terms with carbs, you may want to check out the John and Peter Canteen, a pop-up cafe serving some fine sandwiches. Exhibit A is the Roasted Mushroom and Zucchini, Will had the Chicken and we went halves (or to be truly honest, fraction-wise: 3/4 my way, 1/4 “you-snooze-you-lose” his way) on a lovely pear tart. The menu is low-key and simple now, but expect bigger things in August when John and Peter ramp up the menu and open for dinner.

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.
