Just when you think AALIA can't get any better, its collaborative dinner series makes you look again. Alan is the only Lebanese-origin chef with a Michelin star in Paris and he's going to be in Sydney for two nights Tuesday 24th and Wednesday 25th of October.
The only Lebanese chef to earn a Michelin star in Paris, Alan Geeam is renowned for his Lebanese heritage dishes in a sophisticated French style. With an unwavering commitment to innovation and a passion for pushing culinary boundaries, Alan brings his unique blend to the heart of Sydney for an incredible dining experience.
The collaboration between the talented duo marks the bittersweet farewell of AALIA's 2023 Chef Series.
We hear the menu is going to feature some of his legedary signatures such as hummus cornet with trout roe and nuts along with lobster with freekeh and arak. For dessert, expects something like a sweet brik pastry baklava with cashew ice cream and preserved quince, and a Mouhalabia lollipop.

We think this could be the most 'Aussie Taco'. Its a taco with Vegemite! Ahead of International Taco Day, Taco Bell has partnered with VEGEMITE but get it quick if you want to try the 'Mitey'
We tried it for lunch today. It's a double whammy of warm cheesy flatbread wrapped around a taco. Sounds wierd? MMMmmm.
Imagine a warm flatbed with a squeeze of iconic VEGEMITE, it's then topped with cheese and steamed, then wrapped around a Crunchy Taco, topped with lettuce, cheese and Zesty Ranch sauce. The verdict? Delish!🌮🌮🌮
When: Aussies can grab the Mitey now until International Taco Day on Wed October 4th🥤
It’s not hard to see why Luma Bar & Restaurant at Adelaide’s Playford MGallery collection hotel has just won the 2023 Hotel Restaurant and Bar design for the Asia Pacific.🍸🍸 It is seriously glamorous, with its art nouveau and Italian contemporary inspired sculptural lighting, super comfy seating and golden glow. If you’re in town, it's definitely the place for a fine Adelaide wine or a cocktail (or two!)🍹 🍹 # #

Within thick sandstone walls, and underneath the original wooden rafters of what used to be a stonemasons workshop, the revamped Mille Vini is an inviting space. Dim lighting, reflecting off stunning marble surfaces and the dulcet sounds of smooth jazz all culminate in a space that just begs for you to settle in with a bottle (or two) of gorgeous Italian wines.

This was fabulous, funny and completely off the wall. Packed with incredible talent a classic love story with a touch of Sweeney Todd, a dash of Beauty and the Beast and a lot of good ol’ fashioned profanity.
Locally grown, written here in Aus - this independent production is a must see. Has all the markings of a future off-Broadway hit. Laugh until you cry.
Burgers anyone? Yummo!
We love a good burger, but it’s rare we make them at home, so when our International Burger Box arrived from Hello Fresh we donned aprons and got cooking.
Woowsers! Each of the burger meal ingredients arrived in a brown paper bag destined for greatness. We liked those thoughtful touches on sustainability too. Our pack included:
English Pork Breakfast Burger
South African-Style Pork Burger & Fries
Argentinian Chimichurri Chicken Burger
Opening the bag revealed things like sweet potatoes, tomatoes, fresh chicken breast, spice powders, pickles. Everything we needed was there, including simple six step insructions. One of our favourites was the Argentinaina buger which is a chimichurri halloumi delight!
We sunk our teeth into succulent English Pork Brekky Burger, served with a side of crispy garlicky roast potatoes and mustard mayo. patty, seasoned with Nan’s special seasoning,.
We completed all burger meals in just 30 minutes, and used our flat iron rather than the oven to create crispy healthy chips!!
Heading to Melbourne? Check out our top tips for a fantastic winery lunch.
The Yarra Valley is famed for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir (and some pretty good Cabernet Sauvignons too). It’s our first time here and it only took an hour from Melbourne. It’s impossibly pretty from every angle (even when it rains), with rolling hills, lush green farmlands and some of the world’s best vineyards stacked almost as closely and rows of vines. This makes darting from winery to winery so easy. Less driving more drinking.

Pizza padam padam. The Pizza Bros are the new Pizzaiolos taking residence at the Impy firing up the golden wood fire to bake smoking hot Pizzas. Blue skies, sunny weather, smooth DJ tunes will make the rooftop a destination this Spring/ Summer. Standby for full review.
