It promises to be bigger than before, with a whole list of new names and attractions all … Continue reading

I Spicy – cheap and genuine Thai

Shop 19 (within Safeway complex) 674-680 Glenferrie Road Hawthorn VIC (03) 9818 4828 On the opening night of GFWS, given we were occupied at Gary & George’s celebrity cook show for much of the evening, we didn’t have much to eat that night.
