Caketown, Newtown

Caketown in Newtown is probably a little wrongly named – Cakecloset might be more accurate in conveying how much measuring tape you’d use in sizing it up. Despite its XS dimensions and industrial feel, this bakery is packed with such a high eye-candy-to-space ratio that the lack of roominess isn’t such a downfall. Just make […]

Le Pain Quotidien, Surry Hills

Sadly, I’m not one of those bright, perky people who gets all hopped up about leaving the house at 6AM to “make the most of the morning”. I’m a sleepaholic, so am always pushing my luck being bedsnug for as long as possible. The only thing that can break me out of this pillowy trance […]

The Breakfast Olympics

There are no victory laps, hokey national anthems or teary press conferences about drug allegations, but there sure is a lot of good toast involved.

Opera Bar again (Or… Put Your Tarts Away, Woman!)

I recently had some birthday drinks and nibbles at the Opera Bar, which was really a shameless excuse to try their Vegetarian Tasting Plate ($42). Verdict?

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.
