Chef Lagenda – curry Laksa in Flemington

Given the increasing back log, and my impending ‘gourmet’ trip to Japan (which is what I have been spending a lot of my precious time doing lately), my blog from hereon will take on a slightly different approach – write first and revise later. Certainly there will be some silly typos and incoherent grammar, but … Continue reading

Chin Chin

Having just updated my wish-list (doubling as my restaurant review index) I have three points to make. One – Melbourne has helluv-a-lot of good places to eat at. Two – I have been guilty of eating out much more than I ever have in my life, in order to feast my palate on all that … Continue reading

Omah’s – for more crab

{Omah’s Malaysian – Hawthorn} 338-342 Burwood Road Hawthorn, 3122 03 9818 7777 After the crab fest with fellow food bloggers, I was keen to quench my cravings for more salted egg mud crab. So what does one do? Visit the Hawthorn branch, a younger but sleeker sister of Omah’s at Port Melbourne. The space is … Continue reading

Omah’s – 10 people, 9 crab!

{Omah’s Malaysian – Port Melbourne} 138 Rouse St Port Melbourne, 3207 03 9676 9918 Omah’s has been around for practically 5 years now, but as of a couple of months ago I had never heard of it before.

Chillipadi – Food Trail

Shop Oe7 Menzies Aly Little Lonsdale St Melbourne, 3000 03 9663 5688 Having enjoyed a pleasant surprise at the previous Food trail event, I was quick to jump on board with another of Ashley’s food-coma adventures. I can’t say I have been a frequenter to Chilli Padi, partly since most of my university life has … Continue reading

Red Bean Kitchen

430 Burwood Road Hawthorn VIC 3122 03 9815 2488 Jutting out from the pastel-blue walls is a fluoro-red signage, which makes for a typical visually-loud Asian frontage. Given its semi-remoteness (away from the hustle of Glenferrie Rd) I’d say it most definitely needs it for most cars would otherwise zoom straight past it. Though by … Continue reading

Monk and me

9 Evans Pl Hawthorn East 03 9813 3261 Recently reading some good reviews (Food Rehab, Iron Chef Shellie) regarding Monk and Me’s Laksa, so I was convinced to try some. Located near Camberwell junction, Monk and Me is tucked away in a small lane and has a rather inconspicuous sign. The décor, however, is full … Continue reading

Mabrown

190 Belmore Rd Balwyn Mabrown, a small gem in the ‘burbs’ – Balwyn – that bustles during the week and is virtually impossible to get a table on the weekends.
