Encasa Deli

I was looking for something quick and delicious while trekking towards Circular Quay and this place was pretty highly reviewed on Foursquare. Fun fact: “quay” is pronounced “key”. I didn’t know that, and assumed it was pronounced quay. You know, like the way it’s spelled.... Continue

Reuben Hills Coffee Roastery & Cafe

Reuben Hills Coffee Roastery & Cafe was the first meal I had after touching down in Sydney. It was still too early for me to check in so I walked over from the subway with all my gear. I found the place via a Travel... Continue

After Station Goose Shop (後驛鵝肉店)

I stuck “後驛鵝肉店” into Google translate and it told me this place is called “After Station Goose Shop” in English. I don’t know how accurate that is because I don’t even know what that means, but this place is known for goose so at least... Continue

Milo and Olive

Snow Monster

The Snow Monster website claims they’re the first place to offer made-to-order macaron ice cream sandwiches. And while I can’t verify that claim, I can verify that there are now a hundred gazillion other places that do macaron ice cream sandwiches. And donut ice cream... Continue

The Funnel House

I’ve never come across a churro I didn’t buy, so when I walked by The Funnel House in Huntington Beach and saw their giant sign that said “Authentic Handmade Churros” of course I got one. And after finishing it, all I have to say is... Continue
