Papi Chulo, Manly

Merivale's at it again with Coogee Pavillion opening. And I'm still here after all the hype has died finally going to Papi Chulo.

Malaysian Buffet @ Grace Hotel, CBD

I spent most of my time in Malaysia at the food court. At that time, I thought I was the cleverest cookie. Here I was thinking while all the chumps out there were having street food I was off eating Italian and Hot Star fried chicken.

Competition for Omnivore Festival


The lovely Karla Brown of Joval/Fizz Group has asked me to put up a competition for a Badoit Water Class and the Omnivore Festival. The first two people to (1) visit my blog at http://petit4s.blogspot.com.au/, (2) find the contact us button and (3) email me through there with your full details on the form will each receive 1 x full day double passes (for you and a friend) to the Omnivore Masterclass day worth 80 dollars. Each pass entitles you to all the cooking masterclasses and demonstrations you can fit in on that one day. 

Additionally, if you are able to attend on Friday at 3:20 pm, I am able to give you and your partner a separate VIP ticket for the Badoit Water Class which also provides the guests an opportunity to interact with the speakers and they also receive two complimentary Badoit/Plumm stemless water glasses. Before you email you need to make sure you're able to attend the day at the Australian National Maritime Museum (Sydney) either this Friday (3rd of October) or Saturday (4th of October) during the times of 10:30am until 4:00pm (you don't need to be there the entire time!). Further information can be found here: http://www.omnivore.com/sydney/world-tour/world-tour-sydney/masterclass/.  Sorry for the essay. Good luck!

Update: Competition over. Congratulations Richard Heng and Catherine Cheak. I will now contact you for how to proceed.

Ippudo, Ultimo

 Chippendale's starting to become hot property these days. An abandoned ground close to two universities, Central station and smack back in the middle of the city. With the new shopping centre opposite UTS, it's as inviting as any, featuring a garden wall towering up and a nice clean new space as well as many shops. I'm surprised this hasn't happened sooner.

4fourteen, Surry Hills

Colin Fassnidge is a technical marvel. He is epitome of the comfort food refined. Take my older post on Four in Hand: shockingly good roast chicken, swede soup and a clever clever crab taco. Then a deal came up on Dimmi with 50 percent off 4fourteen, the baby sister restaurant. Am I in? You betcha.

Otto Ristorante, Wooloomooloo

All Italian happens to fall in either two categories being mod Italian and old-school traditional. I love Italian. Mod Italian interpretations however, like anything 'mod', I'm a bit iffy about. When it works, it really gets you thinking long after the meal. When it doesn't, it's a disaster. Otto Ristorante happens to fall under the former but optimistic as always with fingers crossed and a long walk ahead of us to Wooloomooloo, off we ventured.

Mooberry, Neutral Bay

I'm going to chuck in a disclaimer for the record. I'm not head-over-heels with frozen yoghurt. Never have been. It's fresh and light but it's pretty much sour ice cream to me. Yes, I'm uncultured. Unlike yoghurt (geddit, geddit?!?!). But I'm honest so when I was asked for a sample with a friend, I knew at least one of us would be super excited.

I F@%#&?! hate spammers.

To all the poor peeps who received a spam message, you all deserve an apology. I am so terribly sorry. I clicked on an email from a trusted cafe (who got spammed as well) and next thing you know it, I have all these random sent spam mails. My blog email is still petit4s@live.com.au and I know I haven't been active in a while but look forward to more posts! So terribly sorry yet again.

No, we aren't the most amazing gastronomes or chefs. Heck, half our team doesn't even know how to cook... well. However, what we really love is eating. And lots of it. We enjoy that occasional freebie, filling up that craving for a midnight snack and finding a 20 in our pockets that we thought we never had, and using that as an excuse to go out eating. As we battle the ongoing war on uni student poverty, we'll bring you the most swoon worthy recounts of our latest foodie adventures.
