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

Café Vue – Heide & Melb airport

This in all truth is a bit of an odd post. Firstly there are two parts to the post, and they were not on the same day. Secondly, whilst they are affiliated with each other, one was disappointingly boring, whilst the other is indulgently delicious but painfully so. So, let me tell you why… Café … Continue reading

Garden Tuscany

32 Young St Moonee Ponds, 3039 03 9375 2896 A decent trek across town, a few turns here and there, a short stroll down a cobble stone alleyway and you will find a Tuscan mural leading to the backyard entrance to this café. Amongst the relaxing evergreens of the shaded garden the little details in all … Continue reading

Duchess of Spotswood

Actually the only time I’d taken … Continue reading

Parisian Patisserie – number 2

19 Keilor Road Essendon After such a delightful experience last time, aside not being able to try everything, I have been eager to go again for quite some time!!! (see: previous post). So, on my way back from Bendigo (well it was sort of on the way, maybe a slight detour), I had to indulge my … Continue reading

Parisian Patisserie

19 Keilor Road Essendon Was invited to indulge my senses here by my cousin Thanh: ieatthereforeiam.blogspot.com.     Croissants d’amande (almond) – slightly crispy shell with a divine light texture (a little different from your average flaky croissant, err-ing slightly on cake-like; just enough to keep the almonds from sagging like a biscuit), subtle aromas of … Continue reading
