A little while back, I wrote a post about new cafe EARL Canteen. Despite its locale at the other end of the city from my workplace, since then I have had several lunches there – including the much discussed pork belly sandwich that it seems everyone has been talking about (Jess dubbed it the ‘sex’ […]

I recently caught up with my lovely breakfasting companions Z & B at Bourke St cafe the Mess Hall (not to be confused with the band of the same name). I have sporadically eaten lunch at the Mess Hall and had recently been told by several friends that the breakfast was something special. The Mess […]

We recently organised a girls night out to make J’s return to Melbourne after 10 weeks in South America a little more bearable. The brief was somewhere located in the city with good food and great cocktails. Gingerboy was an obvious choice. I’ve been to Gingerboy a couple of times previously, although I haven’t been for about […]

A few years ago, I attended a dinner at Parliament House in Brisbane. We were served such delicacies as crab cocktails and salmon roulade. It was a little retro-kitch, but not in an intentionally ironic way. At the time, I didn’t mind at all, however. I felt that it was in keeping with the vibe […]

The other week, my fearless weekday breakfast buddies, Z & B had breakfast with me at Von Haus. Von Haus is a little tricky to find – its in Crossley St, situated behind the Paperback book store and diagonally opposite Italian institution Pellegrinis. The space is dark and quite masculine with heavy wooden furniture and […]

For my birthday, my lovely work friends A, A, S, S & R gave me a voucher to Rockpool Bar & Grill. I went to Rockpool years ago when it first opened for a big celebration dinner and I remember sharing a rib-eye for two with Mr M. I enjoyed my meal at Rockpool but […]

I really like The European. The food is always enjoyable and while it isn’t pushing too many barriers, I think its a great venue as it is dark, brooding and comfortable. I think it is equally a great place for a romantic dinner for two or a table load of friends. The European is also […]
