Postcards from Florence

Postcards from Florence

I don’t know how people could travel for more than a month when 5 weeks had me feeling so burnt. Our itinerary didn’t even stretch us thin but there’s something a bit tiring to be living out of a suitcase. Week 5 (half way into our trip) found us in ...

N2 Gelato, Fitzroy

N2 Gelato, Fitzroy

N2 gelato uses liquid nitrogen to make gelato with fresh batches made right in front of you :D It’s actually not too hard to understand what is happening – we all know from year 8 science that a huge amount of energy is required to go from one state ...

Peanut Butter Panna Cotta

I thought I gave my work mates food poisoning when I bought this peanut butter panna cotta to work as it did not sit well with me at all :( The next day everyone was fine and it wasn’t until someone asked me what was in them that it finally clicked ...

Postcards from Switzerland | I Only Eat Desserts – Adelaide Food Blog

1802 Oyster Bar and Bistro, Coffin Bay

1802 Oyster Bar and Bistro, Coffin Bay

A quick day trip to the pleasant little town of Coffin Bay near Port Lincoln – yes the town of those oysters! A waddle to the first restaurant we saw opened during the Christmas holidays found us to a packed 1802. Maybe every one else had the same id ...

Sukhumvit Soi 38, Adelaide

Sukhumvit Soi 38, Adelaide

I’ve never been a fan of Thai food until Belgium (weird I know) where I tried the most amazing pad thai in Leuven – greasy, delicious and full of flavour. At some point I was munching on my takeaway pad thai and as J was unrolling her sleeping bag, a ...

McDonald's Macarons [Round 2], Adelaide

McDonald's Macarons [Round 2], Adelaide

When people ask me where to get macarons I will say McDonald’s – this either gets a look of disbelief or they think I am being sarcastic. I’m not saying they are amazing but for something consistent and to shove down a craving I would go to McDonald’ ...

Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, London

Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, London

Weighing up the slim chance of getting into the Fat Duck in Melbourne and passing the 2 month mark to book in the UK, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal was the way to go. Holding 2 Michelin stars and ranked number 5 in The Worlds 50 Best Restaurant this ye ...

The Grand Tasman Hotel, Port Lincoln

The Grand Tasman Hotel, Port Lincoln

Do what the locals do and one of C’s eating and watering hole is The Grand Tasman Hotel. I was curious to try what natural oysters were like (another first) but I didn’t know it was raw oyster D: *danger music* Trying to get a macro shot freaked the ...

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies

After baking some chocolate and potato chip cookies, I suspected the original recipe was adapted from the New York Times recipe. The humble chocolate chip cookie – who knew there were so many things that affected something so simple. Like resting you ...

High Tea at InterContinental Adelaide

High Tea at InterContinental Adelaide

This meal was independently paid for It’s weird to think that I started out this year never setting foot into the InterContinental Adelaide. At my count this is my third time where I have already tried their High Coffee and eaten at Shiki. I feel lik ...

The Market Shed on Holland St

The Market Shed on Holland St

It’s always been my goal to wake up early on a Sunday morning to visit the markets but alas it’s been a struggle. The Smiling Foodie’s farewell to Melbourne forced me up and awake to the buzzing The Market Shed on Holland St –  calling all hipsters, ...

Hello Kitty Cafe, Adelaide

Hello Kitty Cafe, Adelaide

In front of the old Qubic there was an Asian girl in a pink maid costume with a giant love heart churro trying to attract customers. You could see people do a giant circle to try to avoid her – Adelaide isn’t ready for this level of Asian-ness. I don ...

Postcards from Paris

Postcards from Paris

I’ve heard Paris is one of those places you either love or hate. There is no in between. Lucky for me I fall into the former category and couldn’t resist the charm of Paris – it just oozes sophistication and you can’t help but admire the beautiful bu ...

Happy One Year I Only Eat Desserts

Happy One Year I Only Eat Desserts

1 Year = 86 posts, 4 countries, graduation, job hunting, published, studying abroad, full time work. It’s weird to think so many transitions have occurred in such a small span of time. One year and still at it woohoo. I admit I am a quitter. It’s ea ...

Port Lincoln Hotel: Sarin's

Port Lincoln Hotel: Sarin's

Being in Port Lincoln it would be blasphemy to not order seafood. It’s like going to a steakhouse and that one person orders chicken ._. Although Sarin’s is fine dining it offered the cheapest seafood platter that I had come across at $76 for 2. Even ...

Sprüngli Luxemburgerli, Zurich

Sprüngli Luxemburgerli, Zurich

I only had my eyes on one thing and it wasn’t their chocolate but their luxemburgerli at Sprüngli – the Swiss version of macarons :) Luxemburgerli are a cute as a button baby macaron that is about the size of a 20 cent coin. The shells themselves we ...

Sweets Paradise, Osaka

Sweets Paradise, Osaka

Wow I’ve actually been in Japan for 1 month, time passes unbelievably fast. It has been such an amazing experience – making friends from all around the world, travelling and exploring Japan and of course the food. I wanted my first post on Japan to b ...
