Cozy Congee.

Nothing quite like cuddling up in your cozy winter woollies at your favourite cafe enjoying a nice hot meal from, their new Congee dish will melt away any winter blues ❤️



Take me back to @socialhideout ASAP because I need another Pot of Gold, Habib on Toast, Avocado (aka can’t-get-a-Mortgage-on-bread), Pancakes and French Toast ❤️❤️



I’m really into fitness...

Fitness big bad boy into my MOUTH!! 😜😜😜

Throwback (before myprettyburger days) to this amazing Triple Stacked Aussie Burger from @burger_patch - with MAJOR EGG PORN it’s sooo much EXTRA!!! 😍😍

Wait - does this mean burgers can be brunch now?? 🤩🤩



I like big spreads and I cannot lie
You other foodies can’t deny
When a cafe releases a really cool dish
From 5 Loaves & 2 Fish
You say YUM!!
Thanks for having us over for a big feast!! ❤️


New Achievement Unlocked!!

That feeling of EXTRA when you spend your entire foodie career trying to noodle pull... and your non-foodie friend @juliafiereg gets it in one go 🤣🤣

Thanks @meetmicasydney for the invitation to try your new Duck Soba Noodles 😋


Don’t settle for anything less than magic.

@paddockoncrown has gone through a whole new makeover the past 8 months - new look, new menu and LOTS OF FLOWERS!! That’s right - for once I didn’t bring my own flowers to brunch 🤣


Food Recommendation Time ❤️

Lebanese food is some of the exquisite food in the world, and @saltvinetapas has a little piece of that magic ✨ Their food is simple yet delicious, dishes generous and rich in flavours and freshness, and is hands down some of the best food I’ve ever had in this city ❤️


One Sweet Day ❤️

@thetinygiantpetersham - home to the Rainbow Bagel, Pakmak Floss Waffles and French Toast makes the SWEETEST treats for all my beautiful Unicorn friends out there 🦄

Honestly, the food here was a tad bit sweet for my liking, but the rest of my crew loved it 😜


Guess the Food!

Can you Fig-ure out what’s on top of this stack? When I tell Yuzu you’ll be like “Gateau of here, really?!” I’ll reply “I soy-er I’m telling the truth!” also Salmon ... Sorry nothing really rhymes with Salmon, though I have a fishy suspicion one of you lovelies will tell me 😜

Pictured here: the Yuzu Soy Salmon Gateau by @auverscafe, so beautiful I’m at lost for words... sort of 🤣


Poké Bowls!

Pronounced 'po-kay,' people often pronounce it 'po-kee,' or worse, 'poke’. However, 20 points for anyone who orders it and asks for a Pokémon bowl 🤣

A BIG THANKS to our friend Ibz for setting us up with his favourites: Shoyu Salmon with Avocado, Shoyu Tofu, Spicy Ahi Tuna, and Ponzu Kingfish with an Onsen Egg - it was an absolutely delightful meal ❤️


Pavlova Pancakes 🥞

My visit to @lof_rhodes was met with a homely and nostalgic dessert - Pavlova Pancakes - so yummy it made me yearn for home a little ❤️ I loved the FLUFFY pancake stack with the LIGHT CRISP of the Pavlova and the citrus TANG of the Passionfruit and CREAMY custard... NOM!!


Makmak ❤️

There’s nothing better than having your favourite macarons by @makmakmacarons, or perhaps having them served on a bed of beautiful flowers 💐

Flavours here: Raspberry Shortbread Cheesecake, Blueberry, Strawberry Almond, Cookies & Cream, Fairy Bread, Nutella, and Mango & Passionfruit (my favourite!!) 😋



Things are getting 🔥 HOTTER 🔥 at @theburwoodhotel, with chef @chef_adamcremona headlining his new Nashville-style burgers like this MOUTH-WATERING Triple Wagyu Beef Burger - so good I guarantee this will be your new favourite burger destination in Burwood!



Pasta, toasties, and dessert... a Carbolicious spread that is basically an Atkin dieter’s foodie nightmare... or heaven 🤣🤣

All profits from the sales of the Song Kitchen go towards the charity in support of domestic violence against women, which means that the food here is not only delicious but also goes to a good cause. Hope to see more of you Sydney-siders there ❤️


How I Know My Inner Child is a Foodie ❤️

I love getting my hands dirty and playing with my food;
I can’t sit still in my seat so I’m always climbing chairs;
A food fight is the only conflict I’m interested in;
AND I don’t get embarrassed when I get food on my face, in fact I encourage it! 😜
...I didn’t choose the foodie life, the foodie life chose me 😉

Thanks for indulging my non-food post today ❤️ Swipe to see Mr Kerabeareats, my new friend @cookieboyle, and the Miffy cakes for my niece’s 1st birthday that I celebrated last week 🎁

Today’s post was inspired by @betweenballoons and his red balloon 🎈


Dessert Breakfast Fusion (DBF)

That’s what I’m calling this new phenomenon of food, which is also an excuse to wake up your sweet tooth’s in the morning 😜 and think about it - if a dessert is a goodnight’s kiss, then a DBF is the quick seconds you have the next day 😉


Them Hollan-days...

Is #hollandaiseporn a thing?
Don’t you wish you WERE this stack... 🤤🤤🤤


Art & Food.

Who says food isn’t an art form? Be it on a plate or a picture there is happiness and love painted in the food you eat and the artist who made it for you.

At @auverscafe whether it’s a Yuzu Salmon Gataeu or Eggs Nest Fritters, each masterpiece dish comes with a touch of passion, a stroke of deliciousness, and garnished with a generous helping of YUM 😋


What makes Red Velvet RED??

Most of you are saying, “It’s red food colouring!!” but you are only partially correct... See, it’s also the reaction between the vinegar and buttermilk that reveals the stark redness naturally occurring in cocoa, but what I believe truly makes Red Velvet red... is LOVE ❤️ ☺️☺️☺️

Have you tried @lof_rhodes Red Velvet Pancakes? You’ll definitely want to, especially when it is slathered in chocolate sauce 🤤🤤🤤


The Sweet Little Bunny.

What’s better than cupcakes? Miffy the Rabbit cupcakes 🐰


Acqua Pazza.

Italian for “crazy water” is a white fish dish that is typically poached in a light white wine broth. For this Mother’s Day @cafekentaro and @cafeoratnek make it with Japanese twist - Saké 😋 -
Swordfish, Calamari, Octopus, Pipies, Mussels, Garlic, Olive oil, Soy sauce, Saké & Basil 🌿



...and you thought the flower had disappeared 👻
If you ever find yourself in Dural, know that there is a place where you can find really good food out in the Hills called @hillsorganics. Everything is nutritious, organic, and made with love: just like #myprettyburger ❤️


A Feast for a Queen!! 👑

Those Privy with keen eyes may have noticed that I’ve been posting this Royal Spread without a location... Welcome to @thejunctioncoffeeco where all your foodie dreams Reign true!! Bring your Entourage, snap a pic and Proclaim this Table to be yours!! With meals to Empress you’ll be dreaming about this spread all Knight! 😜



I finished way too fast.


Eat Well, Be Well ❤️

Try to spot your fav dish... we have Waffles, Eggs Benny, Acai Bowl, Donuts and Burgers... Now what if I told you that this entire spread was organic/mostly vegan - even the donuts - would you still think it looks DELICIOUS??? 😋😋😋

Nutritious, healthy food does not have to come at a sacrifice of taste, you just gotta know where to look, and trust me - everything always tastes BETTER when it’s ORGANIC ❤️
Thanks @hillsorganics hosting us!


Dorayaki 🥞

Pancakes shared with friends with always batter 😉

There is a new street food stall open in Chinatown Burwood called Fujimi Dorayaki, specialising in miniature pancakes filled with yummy fillings such as red bean, peanut butter, and strawberry ice-cream!! They also do freshly pressed juice, which in all honesty is the best juice I’ve ever had ❤️

Thanks @burwoodchinatown for looking after us 🙏🏼



Most people do all-night benders, but I prefer to rave the cafe scene during the day. However beware - this foodie addiction lifestyle does have its afflictions!
Brunch Bender Syndrome Symptoms may include:
1 • A severely diminished wallet from over-ordering of dishes;
2 • Multiple bouts of “I’m never eating again...”
3 • Passing out on the couch with a French Toast Coma;
4 • Waking up that evening and feeling sick with a Pancake Hangover;
5 • Finding stains on your clothes wondering, “How many yolks did I poke that morning?” 🤣🤣

Thanks @girdlers_cafe for this epic spread, I definitely felt the effects of your pancake 😆


Love Your Mother ❤️

Flowers? Predictable 😆
Breakfast in bed? Na-ah, brunch with her later babe 😘
Chocolates? Come on, you can do better!! 😉
Treat your mum with a personalised sweets box by @petitebakesbylily; choose your mum’s favourite cakes, bites and pastries and get it delivered just in time for Mother’s Day. Lily is taking orders now so get in quick before time runs out!!
Pictured here: New Zealand Manuka Honey Marshmallow, Earl Grey Cream Puffs, and Matcha Cheesecake ❤️


“Describe your perfect date.”

My perfect date would be a long walks on the beach, watching movies, or having romantic indoor picnics with cheese foam teas, takoyaki, and fried lotus chips at @teapluswollicreek ❤️❤️
But seriously though, who knew you could get a proper dinner at a milk tea house? 😁😁


Banana Pancakes.

Nothing beats a plate of Banana Pancakes than having someone pour maple syrup all over from half way up the photo 😍
Pictured here are @girdlers_cafe Almond Milk, Coconut & Banana Pancakes with Pistachios, Homemade Goodtella, Seasonal Berries & Vanilla Coconut Yoghurt.


Do you like MEMES?

I have a NEW BLOG POST called “21 First World Insta-foodie Problems”, and it’s about - you guessed it - the top 21 problems EVERY foodie has encountered on their journey to get that perfect shot, plus everyone’s favourite: MEMES!! Check it out, I know you will relate to them ❤️

What is your top foodie problem? I’d love to have a chuckle today, let me know in the comments ☺️☺️

Big thanks to @loveatfirstbite_aus@scrumptious_munchies@dustbunny077@foodbaby._ and @mr_toriga for helping me out!

Big spread courtesy to @leichhardtespresso, and yes I had to stand on a chair coz that table was TOO DAMN HIGH! 🤣


Food & Recovery ❤️

If you have read my blog, you will know that I have never had a great relationship with food. Long story short: food was a big demon in my life, a constant struggle and it almost killed me. However, as I became acquainted with healthy ingredients and secured knowing my food came from trusted sources my relationship with food strengthened; in the end it was food that saved me, food like the Simple, Honest, Goodness kind by @girdlers_cafe 😌

I encourage every person out there that is struggling with an eating disorder to reach out to someone who loves and cares so you won’t have to deal with your demons alone. Also, I am here for anyone who needs an ear 💕💕💕

Pictured here: FROM PORRIDGE WITH LOVE: Rolled Oats gently cooked in Organic Coconut & Almond Milk with Poached Cinnamon Pear, Raw Choc Bites, Fresh Berries & Hinterland Honey 🍯


“If music be the food of love, play on.”

Any Shakespeare lover out there will know what this line means, however in this context I think it best to say that if food were the music of love, at @songkitchensydney I would be in audio phonic Shangri-la ❤️

Food by Song Kitchen is not only delicious but goes towards the fight against Domestic Violence against Women. Spread the awareness and pay a visit to an establishment that gives back to the community you live in and cares about the women you love 💕



Petite Bakes: for the most Important Woman in your Life ❤️

This very special post is dedicated to my friend Lily @petitebakesbylily, a passionate home-baker that creates yummy treats for events, parties, but most importantly GIFTS!! Lily is now preparing gift boxes of delicious treats for Mother’s Day, so if you’re in need for something a little extra special, go to her page and send her a message for your very own personalised sweet box for your Mother for Mother’s Day (May 13th) ❤️
Pictured here: Matcha Cheesecake, New Zealand Manuka Honey Marshmallow Bites, and Earl Grey Creme Puff 😋😋😋



Sometimes we ought to express our gratitude for the small and simple things like the scent of the rain, the taste of your favourite food, and the sound of laughter at the brunch table when you’ve ordered EVERYTHING from the menu!

I express gratitude for my foodiefam for supporting my instagram journey. Let’s go have brunch sometime!!


Egg Yolk.

Does anyone remember the good ol’ days when we used to soft boil an egg, put it in an egg cup, crack the shell open and spoon out the runny yolk with a piece of bread? Ah... such nostalgia ❤️

Egg in a Jar with wasabi mashed potatoes, edamame hummus, and buttered sourdough soldiers by @cafeoratnek and @cafekentaro.


Food Court Date ❤️

When you haven’t seen your besties in ages, and you tell them to meet at the food court for dinner! 🤣
But seriously though, the @sussexcentre food court is filled with the most IMPRESSIVE cheap Asian eats!

Black Tonkotsu Ramen, Chicken Katsu Curry, Crispy Pork Belly, Roasted Duck on Noodles, Spicy Beef Broth, Pork Gyoza, even Milk Tea! Now don’t you WISH this spread was YOURS?? ❤️❤️


Cold Drip Co. 

I am a little bit obsessed with coffee, especially cold filtered coffee, so when @cold_drip_co asked me to shoot some quick pics for some good drips I thought... of course brew! And FYI, their stuff is rich, bold and so smoooooth it is absolutely criminal... 🤤🤤🤤


Autumn: Life’s way of telling us to let things go...

Here’s a deep provoking thoughts for the day:
As the leaves fall away and cooler become the days, Autumn - the year’s last loveliest smile shows us that life is always bringing about change.
Tell me, were you the same as you were last year? What achievements have you gained, what obstacles have you hurdled through to get here? Since last fall, have you learnt anything new at all? Whatever may be troubling you, Autumn is the time to start anew 😊


A Sweet Matcha Kiss 💚

My favourite thing about Japanese cuisine is their beautifully smooth matcha ice-cream desserts. This one from @yayoiaustralia comes with azuki beans, agar jelly, fruit and brown sugar syrup - a perfectly sweet kiss to end the night even if your date doesn’t 😉


Love Food 💚

Nothing brings people together quite like food. Food is a culture, it has a history, it tells a story, and it forms a relationship with those who share it. In fact, sometimes the only way to get me out of the house and have an actual face to face conversation with people is to tell me there is gonna be food there - nothing against them, I just really like to eat 😁

There are exciting times coming to @cafeoratnek and @cafekentaro this Autumn, a new menu to enjoy with the friends and family you love. Good food, good times, good life. Have you been yet? 💚


A Sweet Autumn Drink.

Summer seldom surprises, but Autumn always amazes. Finally we say goodbye to the hot Sydney Summer and say hello to cooler days and warmer dishes, however there is one drink that still embodies both seasons spectacularly - @qube_on_bay’s Black Sesame Affogato, a beautifully chilled drink with a rich, comforting and aromatic flavour - perfect for those post-Summer blues.



I only ask EVERYONE I know in Melbourne/flying out to Melbourne to get me a beautiful baked pastry from @lunecroissant but so far nobody has risen to the quest.

Would anyone like to get me one???
Pleeeeeeease... 😂😂


Join Me for Matcha?

One of my favourite cafes in Sydney is @cafeoratnek and @cafekentaro. One of my friends told me they had the best matcha, and I’m not even joking - their matcha drinks, lamingtons, creme puffs and tiramisu are absolute masterpieces. I’m often frequenting their space for great photo opportunities, so if any Sydney Siders out there would love to join me on my next shoot there feel free to hit me up 💚


Fall for a Flatlay.

Yesterday I stood on a 4 ft BAR STOOL to get a photograph, which is over twice the normal height of a regular chair. A passerby looked at me and said “WHOA there girl, be careful you don’t fall!” My response, “Don’t worry sir - I only fall for food.” 🤣

Be sure to check out my latest blog post about the dos and don’ts for standing on chairs to get that amazing shot! 



Good food is like a symphony, an elaborate edible composition with a full orchestra of flavours, each dish a component of the symphony’s sonata.
At @cafeclaire.annandale this symphony starts off with a creamy mushroom toastie, seconded by a rich salmon benedict, followed by fruity pancakes, and topped off with a finale French toast.
Thank you @lazypandaishungry@cherri_cupcake, and @sydneycafecrawl for helping me play the assemble from beginning to end 🎵


“French” Toast.

Also known by a variety of names including ‘German toast’, ‘eggy bread’, ‘gypsy toast’, ‘Poor Knights of Windsor’, ‘Spanish toast’, ‘nun’s toast’, and ‘pain perdu’. This dish is typically topped with honey, jam, butter, maple syrup, fruit, bacon, or as you can see here FLOWERS. Goodness, I swear half of Sydney-sider’s daily intake of calories is just flowers 🤣🤣🤣

Thank you @cafeclaire.annandale for your hospitality! A big shoutout to @lazypandaishungry@cherri_cupcake, and @sydneycafecrawl for accompanying me on my day of flower power 🌸🌸


Pour some Cold Drip on me! the name of Love ❤️

I am like most people in this regard, without my daily (quadruple) dose of coffee, suffice to say I’m as functional as a sack of potatoes 🤣 so in the effort to avoid such a vegetative state this has naturally resulted in myself “collecting” coffees whenever I go...
Here is a list of cafes that have served the yummiest coffees I’ve had in Sydney so far:
@qube_on_bay (pictured on front), @deardelicious@coffeebygw@cafekentaro@cuckoocallay_cafe@devoncafe@havencafesydney@welcomedose - thanks guys for the great brews!


Drinks with Friends 🍹

Food is better with friends, so are drinks - and setting up a cute drinks scene at @cafeclaire.annandale 🌸

Pictured here: Pink Angel, Blue Heaven, Mixed Berry Smoothie.

A big thank you to my fav brunch babes @lazypandaishungry@cherri_cupcake, and @sydneycafecrawl for helping me with my shot. Honestly, it wasn’t my best and I could have done a lot better but I’m still happy with how it turned out ❤️


5 Reasons Why You WANT THIS SHOT 📷

I asked you recently who would risk their lives standing on a chair to get a photo, and a STAGGERING 79% said YES!!
From that you have inspired my latest addition to PHOTO BLOG series for beginner foodies, a post called “5 Reasons Why You Should Stand On Chairs to Get That Shot (and Why You Shouldn’t!), where I explore the dos and don’ts of the practice.

Thank you foodie fam for helping me with my project! Every vote counted; every response treasured. Keep a look out for how you can help me write my next one ❤️



Have you met Marilyn? She is one of the beauties being served at @missamericasdiner, except I did request a few alterations... I asked to make her the tallest, fattest, most delicious version of her being that I can possibly eat.
6 patties later and a new hairdo she also became #myprettyburger. I don’t think she would’ve had it any other way 🌹

For those who aren’t as crazy with their stacks you can also get the regular Marilyn with 3 beef patties, cheese, lettuce, bacon and tomato. Thanks for having me at the event ❤️



This post is dedicated to all my beautiful friends on Instagram, which if you are wondering is YOU. Most of you I have never met, but through our interactions of Liking and Commenting we create the bonds of friendship. I feel so strongly for this because about a year ago I truly believed I could never have friendships of this multitude, and then I discovered on the wonderful world of Instagram that love, support, and friendship is possible even at the touch of a screen. Foodies out there, even if our connection is only brief it touches me everyday. Thank you ❤️

I would LOVE to know what inspires you every day, because you all inspire me ⭐️


Black Coffee.

Some people don’t drink black coffee because they think it’s too “bitter”, “burnt”, or they can’t handle its sharpness, but in actual fact a really well brewed black is easily palatable and is just like having a glass of wine - when you stop to savour it in your mouth you will be able to taste fruits, nuts, chocolates, even citrus or mushroomy earthiness!!

My new favourite spot for coffee is @havencafesydney, their attention to detail is unrivalled!

How do you like your coffee? Please let me know, I’d love to get to know more about how you have your brew ☕️


No sugar please, I’m already sweet ❤️

Fact: I don’t have a sweet tooth.
Also fact, @nofailau can make any of their drinks with less sugar, like this Cheese Strawberry Frappe drink that is MY LATEST OBSESSION! It had a gorgeous balance of rose, watermelon and berry flavours that really hit the spot, and at only 25% the normal sweetness - perfect for someone who is already sweet as me 🤣🤣🤣

FYI: no, they don’t give you a flower with your drink, that’s just my quirky motif 🌸


Rich, Dark & Saucy!

I like my Men just like how I like my Soft Shell Crab Spider Benedict from @eggshellentcafe: rich, dark, saucy, and handsomely squished between two soft toasty buns 😉
Thank you for having us over!! 


#myprettyburger most FAQs:

Q: Why did you start this hashtag?
A: Because burgers can be pretty too!! 🌸

Q: Is that flower edible?
A: No, don’t be silly! 🤣

Q: Are you worried that people will go to cafes and be disappointed when they don’t see a flower?
A: Not at all! I’m not afraid of that happening, in fact I encourage it! If the people demand it, they shall have it! 😉



Behold - the Wagyu Rice Bowl that changed my life. It is @anna.juan’s Sydney-famous 2-hr cooked Wagyu Rice Bowl, available at her restaurant @juan.redfern. How did this bowl change my life? Let’s just say... for my entire life I never had the best relationship with rice... until I had rice made by Anna ❤️

Sydney-Siders if you’ve not been here yet get on it!! 😋


It's A Pretty Burger Time!

Pretty burger, pretty pretty burger,
Take some flowers and I’ll put it in a burger,
Pretty burger that’s what’s gonna make pretty burgerrrrrrrrs 🎵

Can anyone guess the adventurous cartoon that inspired the lyrics to pretty burger? I’ll let you muse over this while I go make some bacon pancakes 🥞


A Donut for your Thoughts.

I love a good pun, a game of play on words, the odd dad joke, so I’ve compiled a small list of my favourite donut related phrases:

1. One does not simply... eat just one donut👌🏼

2. Brace yourselves... donuts are coming ❄️

3. I didn’t choose the donut life... the donut life chose me 😎

4. Why BLAZE it... when you can GLAZE it? 🧚🏼‍♀️

Would anyone else like to leave their FAVOURITE DONUT PHRASES IN THE COMMENTS?? I donut mind a little cheeky chuckle today ☺️☺️☺️

Thank you Henny, you make every visit so magical ❤️


My “Trip” to Spain.

Food can do tremendous things; it can bring people together, it is nourishing to the soul, and sometimes it can even take you on a journey. I’ve never actually been to Spain, but the food at @encasaaustralia is so unique, so authentic, so quintessentially Spanish that with only one mere spoonful of their paella I was transported to Valencia and back ☺️

Sydney-siders, if you love Spanish food you must try the Encasa at Lane Cove. I guarantee you will love it.


Geisha Coffee.

Coffee fact of the day. Have you ever heard of GEISHA coffee? It is some of the most expensive coffee in the world, and is highly sought after due to its mesmerising bouquet of aromatics and flavours when brewed as a filter coffee. While most coffee drinkers identify coffee as “bitter” or “burnt”, a well-brewed Geisha coffee produces delicate flavours of earl grey tea, bergamot, and orange peels on the tastebuds, truly unlike anything you’ve ever tasted. Wanna try for yourself? David and his team at @havencafesydney tailor an amazing cuppa, which has definitely earned the place as my new favourite coffee house in Sydney ☕️



This photo is a bit out of my style, but this is a BIG THANK YOU to all the foodies, friends, and amazing instafam for liking, commenting, playing my story games and reading my captions and blog posts - you all play an integral part of my life, and even though I struggle to keep up with everything going on right now, honestly when I get to read your sweet and heartfelt messages at the end of a long and stressful day it is all worth while, because there is no fam like the instafoodiefam! Eat, sleep, gram, repeat - now that is love, and love you all ❤️❤️

Thank you @teapluswollicreek for having us over for tea and dinner 🍵


Pink Heavenly Bodies. 💫

Nicolaus Copernicus was the first to propose the heliocentric model that the sun is the centre of our solar system, but Kerabeareats proposes that the Pitaya Pudding is the core of the foodie universe that pulls pink heavenly bodies such bowls, lattes, smoothies, even carnation moons into its orbit.
Did you enjoy my solar system fact? 🌒


Pretty please... 🌸

Some of you might be thinking... Oh look it’s that really pretty burger from @deardelicious with that super duper uber awesome pink flower on it again... Here I’m thinking... Yeah you should go to your nearest flower shop / IKEA and grab yourself a deep fuschia 0.75c carnation, take a picture and post it on Instagram using the hashtag #myprettyburger... And then you’re thinking... YESSSS where’s the nearest garden?
Happy Easter holidays!!
