Flame Bar and Grill, Queenstown

Over the last winter season, I did a short snowboarding trip to Queenstown again! Apart from being one of the most beautiful small towns in the world, it’s also home to a lot of amazing food.

We’ve decided to create this blog as a way of sharing our opinions and food experiences in Sydney and other places we visit. We wanted to do something fun in our lives (besides study finance) and we’re very excited to share with you our food adventures as we explore the streets of Sydney, searching for the best hidden gems whilst eating on a student budget (with the occasional splurge now and then).
