Mr Liquor’s Dirty Italian Disco, Tennyson Hotel, Mascot

A bottle shop used to be a quick booze-hoarding stop before heading somewhere more important. Mr Liquor’s Dirty Italian Disco proves why it should be the main destination. See, when Merivale took over The Tennyson Hotel in Mascot, they wisely handed the keys for the drive-thru bottle shop to the Pinbone crew and Mr Liquor’s […]

Good Luck Pinbone, Kensington

Pinbone’s re-entry on the Sydney dining scene last month was met with high readings of hype and anticipation – and some tokens of fortune, too. The crew’s latest pop-up, named Good Luck Pinbone, was aptly greeted with charms aplenty after launching in Kensington. A gold chicken wishbone, lucky wooden spoons carved from durian, a rusted […]

Highlights of Paris

If I had any control over clockwork, I’d rewind my life to the five times I’ve been to Paris or hit hyperspeed to some future trip where I’m there again. Even hearing the name of the French capital sparks an express trip in my head – a memory carousel of patisserie windows, park strolls, hours […]

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.
