Lifestyle: Yamitsuki Restaurant Review

Happy Friday! I was dying for some Jap cuisine a few weeks back and I found a little gem in Bedfordview… although extremely far for me, we made my way there on a beautiful Sunday night and we thoroughly enjoyed the vibe as well as the food. Yamitsuki, as you may have guessed already, serves Japanese cuisine. There are 2 parts to the restaurant, there’s a tepanyaki part and a sushi bar part, we chose to sit at the tepanyaki bar because there’s just that comfort when you watch your food being made (ok I find comfort in that). I was not only impressed with the food but the restaurant was very clean and neat (which is how restaurants should be) and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I had some miso soup for starters along with some sushi, calamari with noodles for mains and Nutella pancake for dessert. It was heaven 🙂













I would definitely go there again because the prices were reasonable and the food was absolutely delish! I definitely recommend Yamitsuki if you’re having a sushi craving. It’s not those type of sushi where it’s made so badly that the rice falls apart once you dip it in the soya sauce, it actually stays together! 🙂 Hope you enjoyed this post!

Travel and Lifestyle: High Tea at Ladurée and What is a Perfect Macaron?


If you haven’t personally been to Ladurée, I have no doubt that you know what it is and what it is that they specialise in, courtesy of the good old Gossip Girl days… and for those who still have no clue then here’s a little background for you:

Ladurée is a luxury French bakery and pastries house, they are world famous for their macarons and have 52 stores in the world, 6 being in Paris alone and of course we don’t have one in SA. 😉 Little fun fact for you: Ladurée made macarons for the film Marie Antoinette! Amazing! 🙂

So where did I have the Ladurée experience, you might ask, I had high tea in Times Square in Hong Kong. Personally, I’m a huge fan of macarons and I don’t particularly have a sweet tooth. The perfect macarons for me is where the macaron shells have feet, not hollow and the outside is slightly hard but not crispy and baked to perfection but the inside of the macaron shell should be so airy that it melts in your mouth. Of course, a macaron is not a macaron without filling, although I’m a huge fan of chocolate ganache but a little bit of blueberry or lemon curd filling never hurt. The filling must be smooth and in fact where all the flavour is because the macaron shells don’t actual have any flavouring, just colouring. Although still attempting to bake the perfect macarons myself, I definitely know how to enjoy a good macaron! Unfortunately we don’t have a Ladurée store in SA but you can get pretty good macarons from Tashas Le Parc in Hyde Park Corner, they have a variety of different flavours and certainly worth a try if you’re seeking good macarons.







We also ordered lemon cake and also some sort of chocolate brownie, if I remembered correctly.

I cannot for the life of me remember the flavours I ordered but the pink one is definitely “Rose” because I always order that flavour and it was delicious! 🙂

Hope you enjoyed this post and thank you for reading! 🙂
