Kickass Mac n’ Cheese ($18)

THREE ONE 2 ONE

Remember the freakshake? That monstrous mash-up between beverage and dessert? It had a small heyday a year or two ago, but like all over-the-top fads, it didn’t last long. But now, Three One 2 One is bringing (sexy) freakshakes back (yeah!), along with a selection of extravagant burgers, and I was lucky enough to be invited along to check the spectacle out. Three One 2 [...]

FANCY HANK’S

Think you know Fancy Hank’s? Well think again! Almost overnight it seems, Fancy Hank’s has moved into new digs on Bourke Street, just 2 doors up from Grand Trailer Park Taverna. If you’ve been to the old Fancy Hank’s, then you’d know that Rustic Southern Bistro would be a kind description for the dive bar. The new eatery is much more impressive. Retaining the beautiful [...]

EMPIRE STEAK

Ever since I started following websites such as Broadsheet and Concrete Playground on Facebook, I’ve no longer had to search out the latest and greatest in restaurants – they now come to me in the form of clickbait-y titles on my timeline. And one of the openings in the last few weeks that excited me the most is Empire Steak, a CBD newcomer that aims [...]

And let’s not even get into the whole wineries business. Take Dandenong Pavilion for example. [...]

THE BURGER PROJECT

Those of you out there who have heard of St Collins Lane, raise your hand. Given that I haven’t relocated myself to underneath a rock, I think it’s pretty safe to say that not many people know about this new and rather artsy and high-brow shopping complex. In fact, I still wouldn’t know about it if it weren’t for The Burger Project – Neil Perry’s [...]

MEATMOTHER

I’m not one for TV, as I usually prefer to spend my time reading and sleeping. Still, a show will manage to grab me every now and then, and for the last two years (see I told you I wasn’t into TV), that show has been Breaking Bad. I’m currently finishing the dregs of the final season, and by the time this post comes out, [...]
