8th Nerve Cafe

October 14, 2014

2

My early errands the weekend past took me somewhat unexpectedly to 8th Nerve Cafe (103 Gaffney Street, Coburg). Located opposite the home improvement megaplex, Bunnings, this little local haunt is quite unassuming. If not for the wooden sign and a couple of small tables on the pavement, you could easily miss this place. The interior […]

Chef’s Gallery

August 20, 2014

1

Whoops, time has slipped by me again. Same excuse, life getting in the way, but there was also a short getaway to Sydney. It was nice to get away from the daily grind and chilly Melbourne to enjoy the mild and sunny days of Sydney’s winter. Every time I’m in Sydney, I’m always a little […]

Olinda Cafe and Produce store

I have a love hate relationship with winter. I hate catching a cold/flu. I hate the need to wear multiple pieces of clothing out only to shed it all off and lug it around as soon as you step inside anywhere. I hate waking up and going home in the dark and feeling like there […]

8bit

June 9, 2014

I’ve been super lazy these days, hence the lack of cooking posts. Good thing a new burger joint has recently opened up nearby. 8bit (8 Droop Street, Footscray VIC) is one of Footscray’s newest installations and is the first burger place for the suburb. Hooray for more variety and the introduction of a new hip […]

Göz city

March 29, 2014

2

If you’ve ever had a gözleme from the stall at the Queen Victoria Market night market, chances are you’ve wondered the same thing as me: why isn’t there a shop/cafe selling these outside of the night market?! Well finally the food world has responded and given us  Göz city (502 Little Collins Street, Melbourne VIC). […]

Two beans and a farm

March 17, 2014

0

People who know me will know that I will travel for food. This is why I found myself all the way in Mernda this dreary weekend past, at Two beans and a farm (10 Hathfelde Boulevard, Mernda VIC) in the Carome Homestead. For those of you scratching your heads wondering where on earth Mernda is; […]

Cobb Lane

Here I am reviewing a bakery/cafe just after saying I rarely take photos when eating out nowadays…well I do like to contradict myself every so often. Keeps life interesting ;). Anyhow Cobb Lane (13 Anderson Street, Yarraville VIC) has been on my radar for a while so I felt like I needed to write this […]

Star apple (牛奶果 or vú sữa)

September 23, 2013

2

Let me introduce you to a favourite less commonly known tropical fruit of mine – the star apple. The star apple is so nostalgic for me. Though I can’t actually recall eating these as a child, my mum assures me that I did. And certainly when I became reacquainted with star apples in my adolescence, […]

Adriano Zumbo Pâtissier at The Star

September 3, 2013

1

Sydney has many big names in food, but Adriano Zumbo has piqued my curiousity more than others. He burst onto the scene during the first season of Masterchef and since then has become the much feared ‘dessert master’ for many pressure tests on the show. His popularity (or notoriety) on the show then became a […]

Bourke Street Bakery

Severely lacking in funds for an overseas adventure this year, the only respite I could afford was some time away in Sydney. We were already on an excellent start when Sydney greeted me with beautiful blue skies and a very mild winter’s day – perfect escape from Melbourne’s grey skies. So what’s a Melbourne girl […]

If I’m being completely predictable on a Sunday, you will most likely to find me seated at some cafe in an inner Melbourne suburb sippin’ on a latte ready to order my brunch. But as much as I enjoy cafe hopping, it can feel a little same-same after a while. Most brunch menus tend to […]

Gladioli

Lucky me, I managed to have another quiet little escape out of Melbourne the other week. This time to Warrnambool. Warrnambool is about 3 hours south west of Melbourne down by the coast. It’s also known as the “windy city”. It was another bit of good fortune that on the day I visited the sun […]

I Love Dumplings

June 11, 2013

2

I do love dumplings, but I Love Dumplings (311 Racecourse Road, Flemington VIC) is actually the name of a restaurant. How original. Most of my trips to Flemington in the past had involved Malaysian food, either at the infamous Laksa King or the more laidback Chef Lagenda. Venues located on Racecourse Road generally weren’t even […]

Yeonga Premium Grill & Bar

It’s only been happening in the last couple of years, but the Victoria Street precinct just opposite the Queen Victoria Market has gradually been transforming into a thriving hub for Korean cuisine. Particularly of the barbeque variety. Every time I’ve driven past the area, I’ve made a mental note to eat there and finally, I […]

Martha Ray’s

Wow, only one post for the month of April. So much for attempting to maintain the blog in my down time. Shame on me! I have been bad. I’ve been hiding a bit, just because it’s not all that convenient to be on crutches and also I feel like people just look at me for […]

Otway Fly & Treetop Walk and Wickens Delicatessen & Provedore

March 20, 2013

0

No visit to Apollo Bay would be complete without a venture towards the lush greenery that is the Otway Ranges. I love the long winding drive from the coast up to the forest. The driving experience was enhanced with my zippy little manual but even if you’re not in the driving seat, it feels so […]

Dooley’s Ice Cream – The Ice Cream Tub

March 12, 2013

2

I hope everyone has had as relaxing a long weekend as I did. A group of friends and I escaped the Melbourne heat wave in search for some respite down at the surf coast. The picturesque Apollo Bay provided this in spades. We spent our days lazily splashing about in the refreshingly cold surf, pointing […]

It’s no coincidence that Malaysian food has seen a surge in popularity around the same time Poh Ling Yeow and Adam Liaw found success both on and after Masterchef. I’m willing to bet that there’s at least a little bit of cause and effect going on. It’s actually a little surprising that it took so […]

Sand sculpting exhibition and Peter’s fish and chips

January 31, 2013

Aside from baking, I did another very Aussie thing over the Australia Day long weekend – I went to the beach. Frankston beach specifically, to see the sand sculpting exhibition at the Frankston Waterfront. For those interested, the exhibition is on until the end of April 2013 and costs $12.50 for an adult entry and […]

Cheeky Monkey

January 12, 2013

0

It was a carefully planned masterstroke of mine to have brunch at Cheeky Monkey (89A Swan Street, Richmond VIC) since it was so conveniently located across the road from the Wittner factory outlet. Is there a better way of convincing a man to come shoe shopping with you than to feed his stomach first? As […]
