PAPERBOY KITCHEN

I miss lunch. When I was still at uni, I took for granted the privilege of being able to pop into the city between lectures (or heck, skipping lectures altogether) for a delectable lunch of whatever I happened to be feeling like on that day. Now that I’m working full-time however, my lunches are restricted to whatever I can be bothered to make, or disgusting [...]

HERO

Students have a knack for finding cheap, good food. Or cheap, good food tends to crop up wherever there are students around. Either way, Hero is a new cafe that’s popped up behind RMIT, targeting hungry students with gargantuan Brooklyn-styled hero subs. Students have a knack for finding cheap, good food. Or cheap, good food tends to crop up wherever there are students around. Either [...]

It’s not often I’m super excited about a new restaurant. Excited, yes; downright loony, no. But it would be an understatement to say that I’m pretty keen about Bowery and Williamsburg, ever since I found out that it is the brainchild of Will and Di, the geniuses behind Hardware Societe.

Such as Brown Bagels, a teeny tiny cafe kept hidden in a narrow strip between 2 buildings that I didn’t know about until [...]

LITTLE MULE CYCLE AND CO. CAFE

Melbourne is a strange child. I went to Little Mule Cycle Co & Cafe expecting a sandwich, and I ended up getting just that, except it was in a bicycle repair shop. In all fairness though, the name really should have tipped me off. That and the fact that it’s located in the same laneway as Captains of Industry, the place you want to be [...]

NHU LAN

Forget gourmet. The humble banh mi remains, to date, the most delicious sandwich I’ve had. But maybe humble isn’t quite the right word here; 3 meats, 4 salads, and 3 spreads/sauces in a single sandwich is far from plain. Nhu Lan in Footscray (and Fitzroy) is widely accepted as the best place to get banh mi in Melbourne. Being right in the hub of Footscray, [...]
