When you are settling in after a beer or two, you may decide it’s time to grab something to eat.
There are certain challenges when trying to introduce a cuisine into a country especially one largely unsampled and unheard of. And for years native Peruvian chef Alejandro Saravia has toiled trying to introduce his country’s cuisine to Australia through his Taste of Peru dinners and cooking classes . There is the struggle against using ingredients like guinea pig which many people associate with Peruvian cuisine, lest it become a gimmicky cuisine.
The Winery has been around for quite some time now, and since my last visit it has been busy expanding its cheeky elegant glamour all over Sydney. All aside, it’s a gorgeous sunny day, and time to wind down with our annual company lunch banquet, so it’s back to Crown St! The interior is an amusing mix, much like walking into the vintage store of a hoarder; overmelted candles, animal prints, uncoordinated draped curtains, stuffed animals on the wall and mismatching photo frames and furniture.
It’s been a year since my last visit , and it is still my favourite tapas place in Sydney!
“So anyway, I was wearing what I call my adventure pants” my friend Ute leans over and tells me. “Adventure pants?” I ask.

*Warning: this post contains images of whole pig* “I don’t suppose it’s a good idea to name her” I say surveying the 7 kilo piglet on the tray. I’m talking to George Diamond who is the Group Executive Chef for the Keystone Group’s restaurants including Bungalow 8 where tomorrow we are to have a porcine feast with eight of my friends.
Paddington Arms which is located on the busy street of Oxford Street in Paddington is the new venture for the two-hatted Four in Hand restaurant, Colin Fassnidge. Together with one of his old sous chefs, Neil Thompson , they have created a menu that is quite similar to Four in Hand, promoting nose to tail eating with a more relaxed feel.
My fondest memories growing up had to be hot summers in downtown Los Angeles running amuck in Olivera St - A little laneway which was a destination for some yummy authentic mexican food. My family would always take me to this awesome mexican restaurant and little Gianna had tacos to her hearts content, if I finished my meal and managed to behave myself I would get to buy some mexican jumping beans from the street vendors. I was easily amused back then, as I still am now.
The Carrington – Specialite: Beba y Cene has been on my list of places to go. It is a casual pub that serves Spanish and Tapas like food.
