Review: Aunt Billie’s, Blackburn

Blackburn’s not a part of the world I visit often, so it was a pleasant change to be invited over that way by Aunt Billie’s to sample some of their breakfast dishes in light of their recent menu change. Aunt Billie’s is clearly popular with locals and saw a steady stream of customers while we…

Review: Lezzet, Elwood

Recently revamped and renovated, Lezzet has returned with a new menu offering fine dining Anatolian cuisine in its unassuming Brighton Road restaurant, and we were invited in to try it! Lezzet sets the balance perfectly for its Elwood clientele offering upmarket surroundings but with a casual feel. The interior is intimate, decorated with many gorgeous…

Review: Straight Six, Flemington

Straight Six is a cool and casual burger joint occupying a corner unit in Flemington – with perfect positioning, near to the train station and the race course you’d be hard pressed to find an excuse not to visit if you’re in this area. The Melbourne Foodie Hub were invited down to feast on their…

Review: Northcote STN

Inspired by the London underground (but much nicer and cleaner), STN (station) is the brainchild of Nolan Taing, working alongside Workshop Brothers’ Joe La. The smooth greys and fresh decor are complimented by quirky patterned seats and a heavily tiled counter which really help inspire flashbacks to your days in London waiting for the tube…

Review: Turquoise Eatery, Caulfield

Turquoise is cute and quirky, it could have been plucked right out of my home town for its eclectic decor – which kind of makes you feel like you’re simultaneously visiting both your nana’s with her collection of niknaks cluttering the shelves and your hipster friends who are constantly upscaling everything they find in hard…

Review: Faraday’s Cage, Fitzroy

Faraday’s Cage is hidden away off the main streets of Fitzroy. It still offers that bare brick wall, edgy Fitzroy feel, but in a bright open venue, with a rear courtyard, friendly staff and some amazing food. Until you see the bright umbrellas of the outdoor seating you probably wouldn’t even realise Faraday’s Cage was…

V. Melb, South Yarra

V.melb is South Yarra’s new Vegan eatery. It’s not big – it’s much more a blink and you miss it kind of place, but it definitely packs a punch and probably offers one of the best food variety to square metre ratios in Melbourne. V is really little more than a fridge and a counter. They…

Review: Nobori, Toorak

Hidden away off Toorak Road, Nobori is Toorak Village’s new eatery – serving up a mix of authentic Japanese food, and modern main courses, many with a thoroughly British twist. We were invited to visit and sample some of the great dishes from their menu. Don’t be put off by the fact that Nobori is…
