Buttermilk Tim Tam Pancakes ($19)

LONG STORY SHORT

You had me at Tim Tam Pancakes. Frankly, the rest of the menu could be slops, and I would still be sold. The good news is, not only does Long Story Short serve the crave-worthy, one-and-only Tim Tam Pancakes, their all-day brunch menu is also filled with a plethora of other goodies, with no slops in sight. So let’s dive right in shall we?

CALIA

Me: a new restaurant just opened up in Emporium. Chris: oh? Me: well it does fancy Japanese food, and the menu looks nice, but also way expensive for what it is. Chris: well maybe we should try it, it could be good. Me: nope. It won’t be. We’re not going.

SOUK

If you’ve been paying any attention at all to those entertainment websites (such as Broadsheet and Concrete Playground), you’ll have noticed that Melbourne’s picked up a new and rather exciting looking Middle Eastern restaurant and bar named Souk. No, Souk is not what you do when you’re told that there’s a 2 hour wait for a table at Chin Chin (though that’s certainly understandable). Rather, [...]

AKA SIRO

Alright, Take 2. As you may recall from our post on Wabi Sabi Salon, when Ming and I first made our way to Aka Siro, we were so disappointed to find that they were still closed for the holidays! So, once we were finally well and truly out of the holiday season, we made a return trip to Aka Siro a priority. Having shown up [...]
