8th Nerve Cafe

October 14, 2014


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 […]

Two beans and a farm

March 17, 2014


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; […]

Martha Ray’s

May 6, 2013


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 […]

Tom Phat

December 17, 2012


My friend offered to take me out to a nice ‘Thai’ place for dinner near her place last week, and I couldn’t suppress my surprise when she took me to Tom Phat (184 Sydney Road, Brunswick VIC). They do dinner here? For some strange reason, I only associated Tom Phat with breakfast. I think it might […]

Andy’s Yum Cha House

January 20, 2012


I’m in two minds about writing this post; I believe in the sharing of good food, but at the same time, I don’t want this venue to be overwhelmed – they’re busy enough on Friday and Saturday nights as it is. Believe me, their rating on Urban Spoon is high enough as it is without […]

Carlton Wine Room

October 11, 2011


Despite being a novice wine drinker at best, I am strangely fond of wine bars. Not so much for the wine aspect as would be the usual case, but for the atmosphere. All the wine bars I’ve had the pleasure of dining in have been so cosy, intimate and relaxed. I love how they’ve got […]

The Alchemist

October 4, 2011


I can’t remember where/when or how I first heard about The Alchemist (361 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy VIC), but for some reason the venue itself is very memorable to me. Every now and then it will pop into my head and I’ll think about visiting; and once in a blue moon, I will actually turn that thought […]

Naked for Satan

February 28, 2011


I must confess that I’ve been waiting to write about this place for a while now. So this may be a bit on the gushy side of things. See, I first heard about Naked for Satan (285 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy VIC) way back in September 2010. I had this place pegged as a ‘must visit’ […]

A1 bakery

September 30, 2010


I’ve never been a fan of baklava. For those of you scratching your heads over what baklava is…it’s a middle eastern dessert where layers of filo pastry are filled with ground pistachios and sweetened with a syrup (sometimes honey). It’s served in a few different forms, including little rolls or in diamond cuts and can […]
