The Sunny Cafe

The Sunny Cafe has been serving up open bao or bao ‘burgers’ long before Wonderbao created its own bao eating movement in the city. Being well positioned in the central business district a couple of shops around the corner from Springvale Cake and Bread not far from the Springvale train station, the small local Taiwanese cafe’s main attraction comes from their traditional Taiwanese and Hong Kong Style baked treats, home made soy milk and hearty cuisine.

Dex2rose

There’s just no better time to open up a gelato store than during the summer when things are just starting to heat up. Let me introduce you to a new kid on the nitrogen gelato block. Meet Dex2rose (pronounced as “dextrose”), a sweet little hangout hidden away just off of Little Bourke St. After making its debut opening in December just last year, the place has slowly been garnering its own small army of loyal customers. Is it just another nitrogen gelato lab? I’ll let you decide.

Mr Hubbard Cafe & Larder

Mr Hubbard, is a large healthy cupboard resembling what appears to be a normal cafe for people on the go. The cafe offers a selection of locally sourced healthy and raw organic homemade vegan treats, seasonal salads and a limited range of breakfast and lunch options to dine in or take with you. And I’m a major fan of anything seasonal, vegan, healthy and containing the words salad and cafe. After many recommendations to check the place out by my colleagues, I decided to pay them a visit during lunch one day.

T By Luxbite

For this week only or until sold old, T by Luxbite has released a limited range of Valentine’s Day tarts. With a more than very healthy love for pastries,  desserts, and baked goods, I found the selection of limited edition tarts a to be quite the sweet surprise. Oh Luxbite, how you know how to reach this girl’s heart. At T by Luxbite, the tarts concept store features an ever changing selection of tarts but there are some macarons, hot chocolate and sweet spreads to take home.

Free Burma Cafe

I made it a goal this year to try food from cultures I have never tried before. One particular cuisine I have never tried before was Burmese food. It’s not a trending cuisine like it’s other South East Asian counterpart, but like anything new and different it has the potential to make you curious. Burmese food will remind you of something mixed between Indian, Chinese and Thai food which is no surprise as they are the countries which share the border with Myanmar (Burma).
