Eggs Benedict with Pulled Pork ($19)

BRICK LANE

Now that I’ve finished with my Masters degree in clinical pharmacy, I’m free to be a lady of leisure until I start med school next year. And once I had realised that each semester in medical school is something like 17 weeks long (instead of the usual 13), I became extra intent on getting some hardcore relaxation in before I head off. Thus, Friday Dates [...]

LUNE CROISSANTERIE

I have another foodie confession to make – I don’t like croissants. I mean, I don’t specifically dislike them, but if you stick a pastry crescent in front of me, I can take it or leave it. As far as I’m concerned, flaky and buttery alone are not enough to get me excited. Yet, I found myself crawling out of bed at 8am on my [...]

THE BAKER’S WIFE

It had taken 3 painful (but also highly amusing) years, but my sister is finally able to be in Chris’ company without succumbing to spasms of giggles and embarrassment.

But now that Chris is back at uni (and I’m still more or less unemployed), we finally have a chance to brunch together at Rustica Sourdough. [...]

HUFF BAGELRY

No one likes exams, but for me, there was a silver lining. In my uni years, I would take my exams at Caulfield Racecourse, and I would use the excuse of needing extra sustenance to visit the myriad of restaurants in the nearby suburbs of Caulfield and Carnegie. I managed to check out a good few restaurants this way, but before I could try Huff [...]

BROWN BAGELS

I adore Melbourne’s laneway culture. Even after 2 and a half years of food blogging, and hanging around the city for the last 10 years, I’m still constantly discovering little bits and pieces Melbourne has tucked away in its pockets and seams. Such as Brown Bagels, a teeny tiny cafe kept hidden in a narrow strip between 2 buildings that I didn’t know about until [...]
