Royal Stacks – Chatswood, Sydney

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

On our last trip to Melbourne, we were told we just had to try out Royal Stacks – apparently one of the best burger places in Melbourne. Unfortunately we didn’t make it but lucky for us Royal Stacks opened in Chatswood not longer after! DS and I were invited to the official pre-opening launch and got to try a whole lot of their stuff. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves…

Psst: Have you seen my Taste of Melbourne giveaway on Instagram? Make sure you check it out!

Chefs Gallery – Sydney CBD

piggy and eggy fairytale

So obviously I knew about Chefs Gallery because it’s been around for ages. And I think I’d been before but don’t quite remember when or how or why, or even what the food was like. All I know is that before Cardinal Spin invited me to go, I had always thought of Chefs Gallery as a lesser cousin of Din Tai Fung where you can get dumplings but they’re better at Din Tai Fung so you might as well go there.

Turns out I was completely wrong!

Did you know that The Rocks Aroma Festival is on again on Sunday, July 24, 2016? It’s not just about that one day though – throughout the month of July there’s a whole lot of workshops that you can participate in all, of course, about coffee. There’s latte art, home brewing, coffee cocktails, and of course coffee cupping classes. I’m not much of a coffee drinker (I think copious amount of caffeine in my first year of university stuffed up my stomach a bit…) but I really wish I was able to drink it, and love anything that is made of coffee. So when the team at the Aroma Festival and Cardinal Spin invited me to come along to one of the Coffee Cupping Workshops, I eagerly went along, looking forward to learning more different coffee varietals and being able to spit out my coffee.
