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


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)


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)


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.

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 [...]
Chilli Scramble ($16) with Andrew’s Choice Bacon ($4.5)


It feels like as I’m getting closer and closer to making the move to Sydney (it’ll happen January 2018), more and more awesome restaurants pop up in Melbourne to spite me for going away. I’ve made a list of all the restaurants I must visit before I leave, yet despite my best efforts, that list is getting steadily longer, instead of shorter. Not only do [...]
