8bit

June 9, 2014

2

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 […]

Warm beef and watercress salad

March 12, 2014

0

This is going to be like a merger of the two themes from my February posts – it’s a Vietnamese style salad :). Now I can’t really vouch for how authentic my recipe is going to be, I kinda made it up as I went along. All I had to go on was beef and […]

Pan fried beef buns (生煎牛肉包) recipe

August 5, 2013

2

I love pan fried buns. It’s the combination of the crisp exterior, inner layer of fluffy dough and meaty filling in the centre that is the appeal. I mean seriously, who doesn’t like fried dough? So this is another recipe from the dim sum book I picked up in Hong Kong. I’m super pleased with […]

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 […]

Beef tataki

July 16, 2013

5

This is probably a little anti-foodie to admit, but I use to order my steaks well done. In my defense, I didn’t grow up eating a lot of steak so the thought of eating a bloody piece of meat freaked me out a touch. My palate has since matured and I have even developed a […]

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

May 20, 2013

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 […]

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 […]

Gramercy

Weren’t we Melbournians so blessed with beautiful weather this past weekend? The sun was out and it was actually WARM. How lovely it was to have a nice day during a weekend for once?! In order to make use of that glorious sunshine, I made a trek out to the other side of the town […]

Taste of Asia BBQ House

February 21, 2012

1

We’re still on our last legs of summer, so quite naturally my mind is still set on lazy weekend picnics or barbeques. Speak of barbeques, a new one just opened up not too far from my abode. That, and the fact that it was featured on one of those coupon sites I so enjoy frequenting, […]

The Village Larder

August 29, 2011

1

En route home to Melbourne, I’d very strategically planned a pit stop at the very sweet looking town that is Woodend. Why? Because the sun was out, I wanted to stretch my legs and cue drum roll: it is home to The Village Larder (81 High Street, Woodend VIC). As you should know, food is […]

Los Latinos

August 14, 2011

1

Los Latinos (128 Mitchell Street, Maidstone VIC) is one of those places that Melbourne foodies love being the first to find. Unfortunately I cannot stake claim to that, being about a year old, this little gem on an otherwise derelict looking strip of shops already has a big following. More than 200 reviews on Urban […]

China: A taste of Wai Po Jia

June 14, 2011

0

Wai Po Jia, have you heard of it? No, it’s not a city or province in China so perhaps that’s why you’re scratching your head. It’s actually a restaurant franchise translated as ‘The Grandma’s’ with venues across most of north eastern and central China and it will be clear very soon why it deserves its own post. I know […]

Cafe Vue

December 6, 2010

0

Strapped for cash, but the urge for a gourmet working lunch led me to Café Vue (430 Little Collins Street, Melbourne VIC)? Nestled between its older siblings, Vue de monde and Bristro Vue, Café Vue is the most accessible (read cheapest) and most causal way to experience something from Shannon Bennett’s kitchen. It’s a small […]

Babble bar + cafe

December 2, 2010

One of the best things about traveling has got to be when you accidentally stumble across a great find, whether it’s that cute little cafe, funky bar or awesome shoe shop. Ok, I wasn’t exactly traveling (even though it did take a bit of travel on public transport to get there!) so it’s not nearly […]
