As the final day of this eventful year draws to a close, I would like to share with you a very short collection of top Melbourne dishes which represent some of my many memorable dining experiences I’ve had the fortune to lay my palate on during this decadent year of eating. These have been quickly strewn together and … Continue reading

Foodie Affair

A quick roundup on a Food Affair event, showcasing Marion Grosby. This is going to be a recurring theme (comment): this goes back several months now! SO I’ll stop saying it from now. Please see here, here, here, and here for reviews written much closer to the date. I must admit I’m not the biggest … Continue reading

Movida Bar de Tapas – Spanish on Hosier

movidabardetapa (4)

“On my way to Movida, I stumble down the uneven cobblestone pathway of Hosier Lane, surprised at first by how deserted and almost dangerous looking the alleyway looked, but then pleasantly astounded by the artworks that came to life off the old brickwork.

Certainly there will be some silly typos and incoherent grammar, but … Continue reading

It has been more than 6 months since I first set foot “through the unassuming glass doors” of Matteo’s. This time I return as part of a sponsored 3 course work dinner, which I may add come few-and-far-between. *cough *cough. I was hopeful that I would be able to experience a little more of the … Continue reading

eating vegetarian @ Vegie Bar

IMG_2386

I am generally not the biggest enthusiast for civilised vegetarian dining alternatives when more primeval carnivorous options are available. It is therefore not surprising I rarely visit solely vegetarian spots on my own accord. In most cases, it would be a futile mission to try to persuade me otherwise. I actually baulked when someone from work … Continue reading
