Vau was recommended by my cousin’s friend, as well as being on the same Top Ten list as White Trash Fast Food. After checking out their website, it seemed very fine dining and I was quite excited as they proudly stated they have been awarded a Michelin star and 17 points on the Gault Millau after their first year of opening. This should be interesting!
We all know what brunch is, but what about when you combine lunch and dinner together ? What was originally supposed to be a Sunday brunch today, ended up being a lunch/dinner as we didn’t start eating until 4pm. One thing led to another as people arrived late and we were just having a good time chatting and experimenting in the kitchen.
So you think I’d be sick of Japanese food after a 3 weeks holidaying in Japan, but I was far from being turned off bowls of ramen, sushi or skewers. In fact, I came back and craved each of these foods nearly every day.
Rambutan isn’t your usual Thai restaurant. The food isn’t outstanding, but it’s alot better than the rubbish some restaurants churn out and then claim to be ‘modern/fusion’ restaurants. Despite it being heavily based on modern Thai, I think they do a pretty good job on ensuring the flavours and ingredients are atleast unique in taste and presentation.
Another year goes by and all the sudden the Easter long weekend pops up on us. Nothing beats a short week, I just wish they made weekends into three days instead of two. This year we decided to head to Hunter Valley with a few mates. I’ve been here for a few day trips but never stayed over night before. To be on the safe side, we booked a few months in advance at a self contained ‘country home’ in Pokolbin.
