Chirashi Sushi ($14.5)

KANEDA

Before I start the review, let me lead with this: Kaneda came as a recommendation from K, a beloved foodie in crime. Although I’ve always been vaguely interested in the 4/5 Zomato rating it has, I was completely turned off by the fact that it was a Japanese restaurant with a Chinese menu. So if it weren’t for K, this place would’ve been left it [...]
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. But after a few people have told me that Pidapipo is even better than Messina, there was nothing for it but to try it out. Having previously [...]

BURGERLOVE

You’re in for a treat today- another post by everyone’s favourite blogging sidekick, Chris! What’s the occasion this time? Well, read on and it’ll become pretty obvious! First things first: I can’t do a review of Burgerlove without first declaring how incredibly biased I am.

Mahalo Tuna ($18)

Although I’m not 100% sure about the poké bandwagon, I have to admit to feeling a little tug of curiosity every time I walk past a new specialty poké store. I mean, fresh fish and other titbits on rice? What’s not to like? So it was with that mentality that I decided to try out Mahalo Poké, just a few doors down from its older [...]
Shoyu Pork Ramen ($11.9)

SHYUN RAMEN BAR

When the weather turns cold and nasty, what I love the most is a good bowl of ramen. The only thing is, I appear to be running out of new (and good) ramen to try in Melbourne! At least, that was until I came across Shyun Ramen Bar, and so, this blog lives to review another bowl of ramen. If you think the name Shyun [...]
Salad Plate with 3 Falafel Balls ($13)

VERY GOOD FALAFEL

Very Good Falafel opened on Sydney Road about 6 months ago, and it sells – you guessed it, falafel. But is there a market in Brunswick/Coburg for expensive (read: $12pp as opposed to $7pp) Middle Eastern vegetarian food? There sure is, and here’s why: If you go back to the beginning, Very Good Falafel actually had nothing to do with falafel at all. Instead, it [...]
