             A couple of weeks into its life and Chris Lucas’ new venture is hot, hot, hot. Chin Chin  is situated in Flinders Lane in the space formerly occupied by the abjectly terrible ICON bar. It is actually incredible that ICON was hiding such an amazing space – I really love the high, pressed metal ceiling and […]

There’s a new food truck in town – Taco Truck Melbourne. Beatbox Kitchen have been around for a while, serving burgers and fries from their mobile food van.

The other weekend, Mr M had convinced me to go on an overnight bush walk. However, inclement weather meant that our chosen spot was a little flooded and our walking plans were downgraded to a single day of hiking. I will admit this here I’m not a big hiker. I don’t really enjoy it, I […]

Sometimes I’m surprised when I realise that I haven’t blogged about one of my favourite places (the Gem and the Fox are other good examples). Casa Farro definitely falls into this category. Casa Farro gets a lot of love from me as it is sweet and quirky, they make awesome pizzas and… I can eat […]

I decided to check it out immediately. Mr M and I went fairly early on a Friday […]

In the last couple of years we have started a tradition of an annual girls trip to Noosa. A key aspect of this trip is briefly becoming regulars at Bistro C , which ordinarily involves a daily visit, preferably timed with cocktail hour (which is happily two hours, from 3-5). During cocktail hour Thail Muels […]

Mr M and I recently visited Next Door Diner for a Friday night date. Next Door Diner has been on my to visit list for ages. It has a great pedigree in that it is owned and run by the team behind the Breakfast Club (which I loved), and which is located next door (get it?). […]

After a recent (delicious) experience of South American (specifically, Colombian) food at Sonido! I thought I would continue the theme and try out another new South American place in Fitzroy – Cruzao Arepa Bar. I had read good things about Cruzao Arepa bar (Fitzroyalty and What’s for Tea?), including that the food is cheap, tasty and the Venezuelan […]
