No. 5 ($14.9)/Hawker ($13.9)

PEZZO

Ever since eating the fabulous food at Miznon, I’ve been obsessed with anything that’s pita-pocket-esque. I’ve always thought the sandwich to be one of the greatest inventions in food history, and pita pockets are basically sandwiches 2.0 – served warm, and often armed to the hilt with ingredients worthy of a sit-down dinner. And although the pockets at Pezzo are made with 48-hour fermented sourdough [...]
Combination Beef Pho ($13.9)

TWENTY PHO SEVEN

As a little girl, I absolutely adored Nikki Webster. I didn’t care that none of my friends thought she was cool; I just couldn’t get enough of her strawberry-sweet pop tunes (see what I did there?). In fact, hers was the very first CD I ever bought, and I remember listening to it on repeat every night before bed. There was a song on that [...]
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 [...]
Betty’s Classic ($10)

BETTY’S BURGERS AND CONCRETE CO.

I’ve been a Melbournian for over half my life, but before moving to Victoria, I actually lived for almost 5 years in Toowoomba – an idyllic country town nestled in the Darling Downs, just over 100km inland from Brisbane. To be fair though, Toowoomba actually is a decently sized place by Australian standards; with a population of over 100 thousand, it is actually the 16th [...]

CHILLI INDIA

Earlier this week, I walked into our tea room for morning tea, only to be assaulted with the aroma of someone heating up garlic naan in the sandwich press. The force of the food craving that hit me was unbelievable; I assume it’s roughly equal to the level of desire some women feel when they think about bearing children. I may usually be notoriously indecisive [...]

TAHINI

After my sensational meal at Miznon last week, I’ve been having ongoing cravings for Middle Eastern food. Unfortunately I also had self-imposed blogging obligations, so instead of just heading back to Miznon to have some more of their amazing pita pockets, I decided to check out Tahini, a self-titled Lebanese diner in the CBD that Chris’ co-workers frequent. As you’d expect of a lot of [...]
