Hulu at King Street Wharf

It sounds like a bit of an odd thing to say, but I’ve been waiting for Hulu to open up for a while. Two years actually.

Whilst most people probably know of Hulu at King Street Wharf for its social media presence since it opened a few months ago, I’ve been a fan since they first opened as Bistro Hulu on Liverpool Street. So much so that when I worked as a tour guide for food tours in Sydney, I was one of our first stops.

Chicken & Sweet Corn Soup ($6.8)

Bistro Hulu still exists in Crow’s Nest, but Hulu at King Street Wharf is their latest venture, a more upscale venue with a beautiful view of the harbour. And of course, I had to visit!


The menu itself is impressively extensive, including a handmade dim sum section that spans four pages. You could literally just order off the dim sum options for a yum cha style meal if you wanted!

And we’re loving the creativity with the unexpected addition of cheese in the crispy prawn dumplings, making for a satisfying cheese pull.

Finding Nemo ($16.80)

Sugar Ray’s Bar, Surry Hills

Sugar Ray's Bar, Surry Hills

Surry Hills is full of great dining spots and although I’m more often in the area for brunch, there is so much more on offer. We’re here at the recently opened Sugar Ray’s Bar today, on the busy corner of Crown and Cleveland streets, the spot previously occupied by Iris Black.

Although it’s not exactly vibing when we visit at opening time at the beginning of the week, we’re actually loving the comfy homey feel of the studded leather lounges and framed photos on the wall. Mostly of sports, Sugar Ray’s Bar is a US Sport bar afterall!

Bare Grill on Bourke, Surry Hills

Bare Grill on Bourke, Surry Hills

As a dietitian, I try to make healthy choices most of the time. This means that when I do have a treat I make sure it is one that is pretty damn good! And when it comes to burgers, Bare Grill definitely fits the bill.

It’s not our first time at Bare Grill- we visited them a couple of months ago to try their awesome breakfast towers, but given how well their burgers rate, we had to make another visit to try them!

La Sen, Randwick

La Sen, Randwick

Growing up, Vietnamese food always meant Pho and not much else, so I’m glad I’ve discovered that there’s much more to Vietnamese than I had known. It’s such a versatile cuisine, there’s something for everyone, and this is apparent when we walk into La Sen, where there are diners munching on colourful rice paper rolls, vermicelli salads, pancakes amongst other delicious offerings.

Traditional Vietnamese Coffee ($5.50)

Situated on the small dining strip on Perouse Road, there’s no shortage of great dining options, but La Sen proves quite a popular spot when we visit, packed mostly with families. And it’s not difficult to see why it’s so popular, with an extensive menu of all your Vietnamese favourites and plenty of fresh ingredients. Read more

Holy Duck! Chippendale

Holy Duck! Chippendale Review

Roast Duck

You’ve gotta love a great restaurant name, and it’s hard to resist a restaurant with a name like Holy Duck! But if the name and the glistening roast ducks hanging out the front of the restaurant weren’t already enough to entice you, how about half price duck?

Bet that got your attention!

It’s not our first time at Holy Duck!, we visited during their launch almost two years ago now. They’re since become quite a popular local spot, with the restaurant being absolutely packed even on a miserable Monday night when we visit. (of course, not so miserable after a delicious feed!)
