Scarlett Restaurant​ is a superb restaurant in The Rocks. It wins for me as the best service for 2016 and will make my Top 10 venues of the year. I will be back, even if it is for a stealth late night art heist. Thanks to FCBA Food Critics & Bloggers Australia​ for giving me the opportunity to attend this delectable marvel at the Harbour Rocks Hotel​. http://spooningaustralia.com/scarlett-restaurant/

Madame Nhu​ offers the best food court lunches I have ever had and their flagship restaurant in Surry Hills brings Vietnamese street food brilliance into a wonderful modernised venue. You can’t go wrong with #Vietnamesefood and Madame Nhu knows how to make it some of the best. Full Review is now up on Spooning. http://spooningaustralia.com/madame-nhu/

Big thanks to Arvin Prem Kumar who stepped in last minute to review the amazing The Malaya restaurant last week. Arvin being Malaysian and loving The Malaya speaks volumes - find out his thoughts now on Spooning. http://spooningaustralia.com/the-malaya/

Arvinisstarvin​ steps in and represents Spooning for a review of the Royal Oak Hotel Double Bay​. Thank you good sir! http://spooningaustralia.com/royal-oak/

A small group of us were invited to review Food Society​ in Darlinghurst for their Sydney Festival​ #FestivalFeasts offer. I am of mixed opinions on this venue. So many positives hurt by some avoidable negatives. I will return however because any venue that has Jenga​ on the bar has gotta be good and I am hoping I caught a bad day. http://spooningaustralia.com/food-society/

The Dining Room at the Park Hyatt Sydney​ is a venue like no other. It takes the location location location of a good venue, tears it up and sets a standard beyond high class. Executive chef Etienne Karner’s food could have songs written about it. For me it was sublime. Full review is now up for the Sydney Festival​ #FestivalFeasts dining experience. http://spooningaustralia.com/the-dining-room/

It is a crime I did not write this article before 2016’s end. The Rice Den​ should have made my Top 10 for 2016. It served me two of my favourite dishes of 2016. The Cured Ocean Trout seduced me and I am now in a relationship with their Kung Pao Chicken. And don't get me started on the brûlée. Thanks to the Zomato​ peeps for a fantastic night out. http://spooningaustralia.com/the-rice-den/

My very first inaugural restaurant top 10. May I present the Spooning Australia Top 10 Sydney Restaurants of 2016. Bon Appétit. http://spooningaustralia.com/top-10-restaurants-2016/

Out of my top ten venues for 2016 Flour Drum Newtown is one of only two cafes that makes the cut. The food is unique and healthy and #FlourDrum is an impressive and intriguing venue with staff and plating that elevate it above the standard cafe society of Sydney. If I lived in Newtown I would have my own tab at this place. http://spooningaustralia.com/flour-drum/

I Love Pho is a great authentic Vietnamese restaurant in Crows Nest. Crispy Pork and the Seafood Hot Plate were my faves and oddly I loved Salt and Pepper Tofu for a change from squid. And you have to finish your meal with their Vietnamese Iced Coffee, a truly awesome drink sure to clean out the constitution in no time haha. Cảm ơn bạn cho một bữa ăn tuyệt vời. http://spooningaustralia.com/i-love-pho/
