Review: Punjabi Curry Cafe, Collingwood

Collingwood isn’t a place I visit often, especially in the evening – traffic is a pain, it’s hard to find parking and it’s just a little too far from home. However, I love Indian food, and coming from Manchester where we have a whole mile of Curry restaurants, I’ve struggled to find a really great…

Review: Fabrica Cafe, Fitzroy

Fabrica is a bright, open cafe just a stone’s throw from the fab Rose Street Market in Fitzroy, and offers the perfect space to enjoy a weekend brunch after a market visit – or a lazy weekday lunch, as it’s tucked away perfectly from the busy Brunswick Street. We were invited to visit and try…

Review: AU79, Abbotsford

After attending their glamorous launch party back in April, I was so keen to see what AU79 had to offer now they were officially up and running for a good few months. I imagine most of you have seen the venue in the plethora of media attention it received after opening, but for anyone who…

Review: The Little Elephant, Highett

The Little Elephant is one of those true, local businesses that I love to visit – just hardworking people, producing some great food.Β Tucked away just off Highett Road, Little Elephant is a fresh, bright and welcoming brunch venue. I loved how it was on a quiet street, giving for a much more relaxing brunch experience…

Review: Zesty Pizza and Pasta, Hawthorn

Situated on Burwood Road in Hawthorn, Zesty Pizza and Pasta is perfectly located for all those Swinburne students to pop in for a quick bite. Recently re-branded from a vegetarian and vegan eatery, Zesty now offer a wide range of pizzas, pasta dishes and burgers. We were invited to try them. Zesty is primarily a…

Review: St. Domenico, Richmond

Tucked away amongst the seemingly endless eateries of Bridge Road, St. Domenico don’t have the flash, or instagrammableness of some of the other local eateries, however, what it does have is some great food. The decor is simple, and this small restaurant definitely has an all-round appeal with it’s classic Italian cuisine, and a fairly…

Review: Rock Sugar, South Yarra

I don’t want to describe Rock Sugar as a hidden gem, as with its neon bright signs and funky decor, South Yarra locals would probably be screaming “What are you talking about”. However, it’s Malvern Road location certainly makes it a lot easier for you to overlook, with the bustling Chapel Street so nearby- which…

Review: Rustica, Hawthorn

Located on the corner of a busy intersection, Rustica is a popular choice for Hawthorn locals. Internally, it’s surprisingly light and has a modern yet homely feel, with light woods and clean edges. The floor to ceiling windows help to add to the bright atmosphere, and you definitely feel a million miles away from the…

Review: Attica, Ripponlea – Part 1: The Entrees

Recently we celebrated our 1 year in Melbourne Anniversary, and what better place to celebrate than in one of the top 50 restaurants in the world (32nd to be exact). Now, I won’t bore you with the drama of how we nearly didn’t get a table, the most important thing is – someone cancelled (God…

Review: Northern Perk, Brunswick

Northern Perk is situated near the top end of Brunswick’s Sydney Road shopping precinct. Tucked away in a row of shops and cafes it almost appears as a tiny little venue with a few tables, until you realise it opens out further back and also has both a cute upstairs and outdoor courtyard seating area….

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…
