Surry Hills, Sydney – Hats off to my favourite Soda indulgence – the macaroni & cheese spring roll invention. It’s more like lard on a plate, but it is incredibly tasty larder disguised as super cheesy pasta and spring roll pastry. [Read more…]by
Paddington, Sydney – Wolf knick-knacks line the back shelf of this laneway coffee stop, but only spied with a keen eye. Marble tables for two line the inside of this narrow café with 1920’s light jazz notes setting the tone right for a European espresso bar, rather than a wolf’s den. [Read more…]by
Sydney CBD – Sydney’s CBD is somewhat soulless, and whilst a lot of renowned restaurants and clubs are located around here, I just find the whole area quite ghastly and lacking character.

I am Italian and I love my gelato. It reminds me of hot summer evenings, Mediterranean beaches and my childhood. So I am delighted to be living just round the corner from Gelato Messina, in Darlinghurst.by
