Three one 2 one, Richmond

Three one 2 one exploded on to the Richmond food scene, and probably your insta feed too, with its crazy shakes and fully loaded burgers. The Melbourne Foodie Hub were invited down this week to try it out and see what all the hype is about. I must have walked past three one 2 one…

Review: Tinker, Northcote

I’m a huge fan of all things panna cotta, so imagine my delight when those little mischievous dreamers at Tinker invited my down to try some of their oh-so-instagrammable dishes. Situated on High Street, Tinker’s funky industrial feel is a perfect fit with trendy Northcote, and unsurprisingly, it was still packed when we arrived in…

Review: Chin Chin, Flinders Lane

I don’t think many people living in Melbourne haven’t heard of Chin Chin, but being new here, I was still yet to try it and so a fellow foodie and I went to check it out. Down Flinders Lane, with it’s many great eateries, Chin Chin was packed, even when we arrived at 5pm. Luckily…

Review: Starward Distillery, Port Melbourne

I was lucky enough to be invited to Starward Distillery’s Ten Year Anniversary Party and Bottling Launch a few week ago. The only whisky distilleries I’ve visited before have been much larger companies, on organised tours, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. My walk down what seemed like a deserted industrial estate didn’t fill…

Review: Resto Bobo, Windsor

It’s not often that days later I’m still dreaming about a meal I ate, but Resto Bobo managed to have me doing just that. Hidden away on Chapel Street in between the bars and Asian Street Food Eateries, you’d be forgiven for not knowing this new French restaurant exists, but you need to get it…

Review: Sideshow Coffee, Prahran

Last week we were invited to visit Sideshow, Prahran’s newest coffee shop. Now I know what you’re thinking, “does Prahran/Chapel Street really need another cafe?” But sideshow is a real gem. It’s not a cafe as such, it’s just coffee and bakery items. So there’s no fighting with the brunch crowd when you just want…

Review: Terror Twilight, Collingwood

Going to Collingwood always feels like an adventure as being slightly further from home (read, awkward to get to) we don’t go often, so I was delighted when Terror Twilight, one of Collingwood’s newest eateries offered to host us, as it means I get a sneaky half day out in the process. Now Terror Twilight…

Review: Gelocchio, Carlton

Gelocchio is a new addition to Carlton’s popular Lygon Street. Opening in an already crowded market, in the middle of winter is a big ask for an ice cream parlour, but if anyone is going to make a success of it, these guys will. Recently returning to Melbourne after 5 years setting up a successful…

Review: Abacus, Chapel Street

Abacus is hard to miss if you’ve been down Chapel Street, it’s a big unit on the corner and when they fold back the windows in summer, it dominates the block. Despite visiting on a cold winters day, it’s pleasing to see Abacus still has a spacious feel with its high ceilings, large windows and…

Review: Little Peacock Cafe, Brunswick

Last week, Little Peacock Cafe invited the Melbourne Foodie Hub in to try their new menu. Set just off Brunswick’s Sydney Road, Little Peacock’s fully glass fronted unit, leads into a bright, modern cafe. I loved the range of seating options, the semi-open kitchen and the light wood which lifts the whole cafe. The stack…

Review: Niche on Bridge, Richmond

This week we were invited to visit Niche on Bridge. Niche on Bridge is not your typical Melbourne cafe. Even in the middle of a refit, it was sleek, suave and reminded me more of a hotel restaurant than a Richmond eatery. This place oozes professionalism and Daniel and his team went out of their…

Review: The Left Handed Chef, South Melbourne

We were invited to visit South Melbourne’s The Left Handed Chef – and when you hear good things from not only one of the top bloggers on Zomato, but also several other of your good foodie mates you’re expecting something pretty special, and The Left Handed Chef was just that, but not in the way…
