Crab Meat Scramble ($18.5)

HUMBLE RAYS

I’m back on the brunch train! After realising that going to bed at 2am and sleeping in until noon on weekends makes for an excruciating Monday, I’ve started making an effort to set myself more reasonable bed and wake-up times. Then lo-and-behold, all of a sudden I have way more daylight hours at my disposal, and what better way is there to make use of [...]
Bacio ($4.5) with Melted Nutella ($1)

PIDAPIPO

For the longest time, my go-to place for good gelato is Gelato Messina. Between their 40-odd flavours and half a dozen decadent specials that rotate on a weekly basis, I saw no need to ever go anywhere else.

Avocado Magic ($14.5)

Ever since eating it at home as a child, I’ve always found myself irresistibly drawn to it any time I see it on a menu. It doesn’t even need [...]
Chilli Glazed Lamb Ribs

CURE BAR AND EATERY

A 9-course tapas feast for $39 called ‘Feed Me’? Cure Bar and Eatery knows the way to my heart. Located in a relatively quiet section of suburban Carlton, Cure Bar and Eatery is a small, vintage-styled tapas and whiskey bar that seems to be a regular haunt for the locals. Chris had just finished his final uni exam (ever!), and we were here for a [...]

KAPRICA

I’ve always been glad to live in a multicultural city, and even more so when I began this food blogging biz. But a part of me has always wondered – what if I was eating the ‘fake’ versions of all the delicious foods on offer around the world? Like that time in China where my grandparents bought me what they thought, honest to god, was [...]
