  • It was sheer delight to dine again at the Italian Kitchen Company last night On Spaghetti Marinara with prawns like these and half price pizzas. Yes, that's right. - Half price all night enery night! Their seafood, such as the king prawns pictured, is magic, their marinara sauce the tastiest. And there's a boutique Italian wine list.  Do yourself a favour... Just saying! @italiankitchencompany

  • Loving this long weekend with more to come! Time to enjoy Eggs Bene and Pea and zucchini fritters with labna, avo and quinoa salad @cafe.catalina this morning. What a beautiful view across the Broadwater! Top spot!
  • Sometimes simple is brilliant. Take these classic aranchini from @bambinoitalian Their filling includes tomato, capsicum, eggplant, mozzarella and sopresso. It's a fresh lighter approach than the usual truffled mushroom arancini. So delicious we could go back for more!
  • At @kokumrestaurant where our small share plates take modern Indian cuisine to a new level. Tandoori prawns with pomegranate and Prawn bhaji taste as sensationally delicious 😋 as they look. @marinamirage
