Hi! Where have I been lately? First update: I’ve moved out. Second update: I’ve moved to Sydney in Australia! Present feeling? blissful and a little nervous, but ready to start a new chapter in my life. Sydney was never on my mind when it came to a vacation or places to live, but here I am! In the sunniest city with my sister. It was in fact Alexandra who convinced me to move here. Truth be told, I’d never leave Oslo for the land down under if she wasn’t already living here. This was an opportunity I’m glad I took. I’ll talk more about it in a later post, now over to something completely different; food!
Alexandra and I have long wanted to start a food-column on Candid That where we write about recommendations on our favorite eateries and dishes. A #CandidBrunch or #CandidCuisine kind of feel. This weekend Alexandra took me around the city to get to know Sydney better. We ended up eating out at three of her favorite cafes that I’ve become very fond of. Haven, White Taro and Glider Cafe. Below are some pictures we snapped of the cafes and the delicious food we got served.
⌱ HAVEN TAILORING COFFEE JOYOUSLY ⌱
IN SURRY HILLS.
The first café that we visited was Haven in Surry Hills. It had an industrial feel with rustic timber tables and its very own vintage piano. We liked how it got crowded through out the day, but the calm ambiance was always there. The coffee shop is also pet-friendly, so we saw dogs in all sizes stroll around which was super cute. The Autumn menu has a lot of asian inspirations and dishes including egg waffles and salmon burgers.

⌱ WHITE TARO ⌱
IN SURRY HILLS.
This café has dishes influenced by the Vietnamese food culture. How cute is the Brother bear latte art? The aioli fries was amazing beyond words and the lobster waffles is a must-try signature dish. We will certainly come back for more delicious food *drooling*
⌱ GLIDER KS CAFE ⌱
The cutest café in Spice Alley just a short walk from our new neighbourhood, Chippendale. They have the cutest staff, adorable customized mugs and the interior is an Instagrammers dream, to be honest. One of our big time favorites is The mango salad with chicken schnitzel. This dish is part of the summer menu so go taste it while you can!
See you soon,
