Legendary iconic Australian legend-slash-icon and the world’s best singer (if memes are your thing) Shannon Noll has done a Jeff Goldblum and teamed up with Menulog to open a pop-up store in Sydney today. Based on research which shows Aussies spend more than an hour each day preparing meals instead of getting a good night’s sleep, having ‘me’ time, or even getting outdoors, the temporary Surry Hills concept store – dubbed the Menulog 25/7 Store – will open for one hour a day over the next three days with an offering that includes customers browsing “products” such as “Quality Thyme” and “BuzzPops” to reflect what they’d do if they had an extra hour in the day. ...

Seafood is the ‘S’ word here at love.fish, as is ethically Sourced, Sustainbility and Supports local Suppliers. For a harbour city like ours, there aren’t many restaurants that can attest to being experts of what lies under the sea. The data is skewed at polar opposites of the graph, we have tonnes of fish and chip shops and plenty of elegant fine dining options. As a result, seafood also seems to come with its own misconceptions due to the dining climate of our city, that it is either deep fried and dirt cheap, or exceptional but expensive. Love.fish aims to occupy the vacant sweet spot in between, a casual-but-chic restaurant that you could patron a few times a week, rather than only for special occasions.... Read More | Share it now!

One of the newer additions to Barangaroo, the restaurant plays on the notion of seasons (Été translates to summer).
