Melbourne’s sweet delights roundup 2013

After reading a recent article on the Herald Sun that listed out what they believed were the top 25 desserts in Melbourne, I was game on trying a version of my own – albeit several of mine actually appear on that list too. And there’s plenty more where these came from. So here is a … Continue reading

Steer Bar and Grill

Steer Bar and Grill is located right under the Olsen Hotel on Chapel Street, you can’t miss it. If you ever walk passed it you would have seen the impressive fibreglass cow glaring out at potential diners. This is a truly steakhouse experience, where each table is presented a massive board showcasing all the beef … Continue reading

Melbourne food update: He says she says, Touche Hombre, The Botanical.

I may have been absent from the blogging scene for quite some time, and with a tendency to sometimes evaporating for months on end, you might think I may have stopped eating. That could not be any further from the truth. As you may have noticed on some recent posts, I have only recently (*ahem … Continue reading

MFWF roundup – IGA World’s longest lunch 2012

A quick roundup on this Melbourne Food and Wine festival event attended by a 1200 strong crowd along the Yarra river… Weather: brilliantly sunny with a touch of breeze.

Parking, to my amazement, was quite easy to find. Pushing open the heavy door, one collides with the loud chatter of predominantly Chinese diners … Continue reading

Luxbite – cakefest

{Luxbite} 38 Toorak Road South Yarra, 3141 03 9867 5888 Not long following a satisfying macaron fix, a sugar-crammed-cake-fest was already in the making. In view of Luxbite being a relatively small space, it would not have been viably possible to fit in more than a small group of 10, so it was essentially first … Continue reading

LuxBite – macarons+++

38 Toorak Road South Yarra, 3141 03 9867 5888 After a wholly satisfying breakfast across the west side at Duchess of Spotswood with Thanh, we headed back east for a macaron fix at South Yarra. P.S. I haven’t forgotten writing about Duchess – good things come with time *ahem*. The traffic laden streets of Toorak … Continue reading
