Arisun Express and Azoto, World Square

Arisun is a well known local haunt for Korean Fried Chicken in Sydney and it has now expanded its footprint with the newly opened Arisun Express and its sister store Azoto for liquid nitrogen ice cream at World Square. Contrary to its name, Arisun Express is not just about takeaway Korean Fried Chicken (although that’s on offer too), there’s plenty of seating outside in the alley and upstairs if you want to dine in.

Charim, Crows Nest

Home-style Korean food has found its way to Crows Nest in the form of Charim, a new-ish cosy restaurant that only has room for a few wooden tables and an open plan kitchen which also doubles as the counter. I am glad we booked ahead, because on the Friday night we arrive the tables in the restaurant are already almost full and the owners had to play some tetris with the remaining table to fit the 4 of us in.

NaruOne, Town Hall

It’s hard to resist finger licking good chicken, so when the name NaruOne started popping up on food blogs and was being touted as “the best Korean Fried Chicken in Sydney”, I knew that it was only a matter of time before I found myself there to try it out.

Wine Selectors Chef Series

After almost 2 years of documenting our food adventures in Sydney and abroad, it’s clear that we have definitely developed a taste for eating out at restaurants…but we must admit that there are some days that we just feel like staying in and cooking some homemade favourites or trying out new recipes. The cold, wet and miserable winter we’ve been having in Sydney has been the perfect excuse for me to gather our family and friends to road test a couple of new recipes paired with 2 exclusive wines from the Wine Selectors Chef Series range. These wines are hand picked by some of Australia’s most well-known chefs to match with their signature cuisines and are only available through Wine Selectors and the chefs’ restaurants.

A food journey through Seoul, South Korea

A couple months I took a trip to South Korea and spent a couple days in Seoul. Firstly, it’s such a beautiful city which is constantly awake with lots of hot food, bright lights and shopping! But the temperature stays around an average of -10c in winter, so it’s no wonder chilli is a staple in their dishes. Over my short stay, I set out to explore a wide range of Korean foods but apologies in advance because there are very few restaurant names to the below as I often could not read the name!
