             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 […]

A while ago, I headed to Von Haus for breakfast. While I enjoyed their breakfast offerings, I couldn’t help but think that Von Haus would be perfect for drinks and dinner… and I was right! Mr M, P and I headed there on a freezing night for few glasses of red and some dinner. The […]

So after a rash of terrible macaron experiences, I have been lucky enough to finally unearth a few good macarons. Unfortunately, my luck has changed again… In my macaron pursuits I have been told several times to try Laurent’s version.

A few years ago, I attended a dinner at Parliament House in Brisbane. We were served such delicacies as crab cocktails and salmon roulade.
