Christmas chocolate tree, Kakawa

Merry Christmas! Hope you’re enjoying the blitz of good food, company and presents – and here’s to the start of your holidays being memorable for the best of reasons. Our Dec 25 was spent taking turns trying to stem the gush of water from a burst pipe in Will’s shower, while waiting for a (thankfully working!) plumber to turn up. But before that, there was Gelato Messina Christmas flavours and Wayne’s World to look forward to.

We’ve got this chocolate tree (bought from Kakawa in Darlinghurst) to joyfully demolish once we get our post-dinner appetites back again, too. Happy holidays and hope your 2013 brings many excellent meals (with equally excellent company) to look forward to. Thanks for reading this blog, too – it’s really lovely that you do.

Kakawa Chocolates, Shop 5, 147 William St (a few blocks from the Darlinghurst Rd end), Darlinghurst, (02) 9331 8818,

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.
