The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry | A Sydney Food Blog

New zine: Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry 2015 edition

May 28th, 2015  |  Published in Latest, Zines


Here’s a new zine! It’s an update of last year’s The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry publication and I created it for the recent MCA Zine Fair. Consider it a snack-sized version of this blog and or a neat track listing of my favourite places to eat and drink in Sydney.


It can multitask as a guide for an out-of-towner or a local who is looking to revisit old favourites or add new discoveries to their list of much-frequented places.


This 2015 edition contains updated entries, chefs’ recommendations and upcoming openings to look out for.


Because it includes quite a few handmade touches (put together while I blitzed through four seasons of Veep!), I only created 100 copies, so if you’d like to pick up one of the remaining editions – you can order it on my Bigcartel page.


I also produced a zine of short-ish stories called A Library Card Is Not A Licence To Romance, and you can snap that up online, too, if you’re curious!

And thanks to everyone who dropped by MCA Zine Fair or asked me about my latest DIY efforts, it makes all the long stamping/sticking/compiling sessions totally worth it!

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.
