NOV2016. I usually begin my posts at the end, but considering the amount of pictorial emphasis and significance of each event, i shall write about each one as we go along this post.
Dinner @ Whitegrass, CHJIMES
This was truly one of the best dinners i’ve had in my entire life thus far. The ambience, food, service and probably everything about that evening was on point. Whitegrass gives you the choice of a 5-course or 8-course dinner menu-We went for the 8-course which was amazing. One visit carries a hefty price tag, but it offers a one of a kind experience really.

Dinner paired with 2014 Chardonnay, Margaret river.
Dinner @ Cheek by Jowl
Visited this place which has been on my list of “to-try” for a pretty long time. A nice joint serving Australian-Inspired fusion food-i especially loved the desserts. I usually hate liquorice, but their liquorice cake with raspberry ice cream won me over. Their pigeon and beetroot were my other favourites.

Fort by Maison Ikkoku
Beautiful ambience, delicious cocktails, but really mediocre food. The 12-course Omakase (priced at $68++) was really disappointing to say. Each item lacked a wow factor and was really overall just meh. It would have been more worth the time and travelling if the quality of food was up to standard. But nonetheless, their bespoke cocktails were great.
Homemade Picnics @ Marina Barrage
The most elaborate one ever prepared- Steak tacos with miso marinated sirloin, fresh salsa, Grilled ham and cheese sandwiches, Roasted macadamia chicken salad, home-baked berry souffle cheesecake pie, fresh fruit and mint tea. Yes, everything was made/baked from scratch.
The Botanist @ 74 Neil Road
Made a trip down to Botanist (by the Pacamara people) to have a go at their brunch-and it was lovely. I had the corn beef hash which was really well done. The babe had their maple pancakes which was thoroughly enjoyed as well. A pretty place with great food, drinks and service.
