Buddha’s Belly

July 19, 2011


I found the name of this venue rather curious, Buddha’s Belly (75A Chapel Street, Windsor VIC). It makes me think 1. vegetarian and 2. Asian cuisine. Clearly my mind jumps easily to stereotypes, but for the record, it was neither. It’s a casual cafe by day come snack bar at night. It’s comfortably set amongst other […]

1000 £ Bend

July 13, 2011


It’s winter, I’ve been hibernating and as such, have not ventured out nearly as much as I’d like.

But there is one minor factor that can dampen the holiday cheer…that being, everyone else is on holidays too! You know when you just discover you […]

A dear friend had recommended this place to me, and being rather fond of crepes and chocolate, it became my mission to try it out. Fraus (345 Victoria Street, North Melbourne VIC) boasts of truly European style ‘seriously rich’ hot chocolates and crepes in an attempt to differentiate itself from the million and one other […]
