Utterly amazing - the Clucky Chicken

Kaffana Bar – formerly their pop-up venue Kaffana Burger – launched today in their permanent premises.

Kaffana the restaurant has moved to Gilbert Place, so the main thing to take from this is there is now extra Kaffana permanently ...

The Bunker Sports Bar and Grill

img_20170823_192043_613-resized-1024.jpg

Lets just get one thing clear. The Bunker Sports Bar is not somewhere that people would normally write extensive reviews about. In fact, with all due respect, its probably not somewhere that people put that much thought into at all. Its not exactly new and sexy. Its not trying to be the latest and greatest anything. There is no trendy ...

Mexican Society

Ocotpus Tentacle

Think Mexican food, and personally it brings to mind images of sloppy tomato and cheese laden plates, devoid of an interest or personality.

This is certainly a hangover from an initial ...

Fair Espresso is another one of those cafes that I have been walking past for quite a long time now, casually perusing their wares from a distance, for some time now. When I say ‘a distance’, this is a few metres as they are situated at the entrance to the central markets next to the courts.

Winter. Ugh. Just the mention of this word conjures up images of dreary skies. Sodden miserable people traipsing their way forlornly through the murk, mud coating thier shoes while cold winds from the Antarctic sandblast their eyes with near freezing rain. Oh the joy. Its not all bad though. Once you get out of the doom and gloom, a fireplace ...

Cheeseburger – Hindley Street

20170609_133117-01-resized-800

The beautiful thing about Cheeseburger is its simplicity. Putting my old marketing hat on, the concept is pure. They know what they are looking to achieve, they have a core product which is clearly defined (I mean, its in the name) and its easy to communicate. There can be no ambiguity. Their branding and store front is clean and bright, ...
