Flour And Stone

I hit up Flour and Stone based on a Travel + Leisure recommendation which also recommended ordering the lamington. Actually, every review I came across agreed they probably had the best lamingtons in Sydney and possibly Australia. Here’s the thing though: I don’t know what... Continue

Single Origin Roasters

There were an insane number of good coffee shops in Sydney, but Single Origin Roasters in Surry Hills was probably my favorite. It wasn’t just that the coffee and food were as fantastic as the atmosphere, it was– oh, wait, no, that’s exactly what it... Continue

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
