Cookie

Cookie

(Stir fried pork belly with red curry, green peppercorns, kaffir lime and green beans) We all know it and we all love it, but sometimes we forget about it: Cookie, is a real treat in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD. Situated in Curtin House, it is also the same building that houses Melbourne’s open air Rooftop...
The Smith

The Smith

(Image courtesy of The Smith) Since it first opened we knew that The Smith was something special. At first glance it may have appeared (aesthetically) to be like many of the new fad restaurants and bars with amazing (but similar) architecture, and there may have even been a whiff of deja’ vu about the South...
Review: The Merrywell

Review: The Merrywell

Merry you will be at The Merrywell, an American style restaurant with two sides. If you’re feeling like a quick, low key lunch, snack or dinner, The Merrywell’s downstairs Burger Bar is the best option for you. Tuck into something hearty and doughy with their delicious juicy burgers or a sandwich and fries washed down...
Review: Yo Chi

Review: Yo Chi

When you don’t feel like gelato or ice cream or even soft serve, you have another even healthier option…frozen yoghurt. At Yo Chi they have mastered the art with a ‘zenned out’ yoghurt bar completely dedicated to this tasty cold treat. Beautifully decked out, Yo Chi is a relaxing little haven where you can sit...
Review: Minh Tan II

Review: Minh Tan II

Minh Tan II has been around since the early 90s, and we’ve been going there that long. Over the last two decades the one thing Minh Tan II do well, apart from the delicious Vietnamese/Chinese food, is their consistency – the old chestnut that makes people come back for more.   What we come here...
Review: Mazzitelli

Review: Mazzitelli

  If a cafe or restaurant’s clientele is particularly loyal, you know you’re onto a good thing. In the case of Mazzitelli, rumour has it that one loyal patron makes the pilgrimage daily from her home in Sunshine – that’s when we decided to find out what all the fuss was about. After several sittings and...

Review: Penang Road

Review: Penang Road

Penang Road came highly recommended to us by a colleague stating that he had just eaten the best Curry Laksa of his life and then went on to name a few of the places it now rivalled. Within days we tried it and we have to agree, it is one of the best Laksa’s going...
Review: Cicciolina

Review: Cicciolina

Cicciolina’s has been a Melbourne institution since the early 90’s. Their kitchen has a seemingly simple and pure ethic – serving good food all the time. The cuisine is modern, seasonal and always flavoursome. Some say it’s romantic, others dine here for a special occasion, the rest are locals or fortunate enough to eat here...

Review: Pizza Farro

Award winning pizza North-side that just so happens to be made from 100% spelt and is gluten free. Delight in eating pizza with a base that won’t upset your belly. From their high ceilings lined with rolling pins to their general approach and commitment to serving good honest Italian food, you cannot go wrong at...

Review: Evening Star

When one door closes another one opens. After Claypots closed down their Gertrude Street location we all panicked a little, but unbeknownst to us the Claypots crew had bigger fish to fry. The Evening Star is not like the Claypots you were used to on Barkly and formerly on Gertrude. Evening Star tackles a new...
