When I first heard from a fellow friend that Broadsheet Melbourne, was opening their own pop up restaurant, I could not believe it. At first, I was surprised and then, ecstatic. The concept of bringing together chefs from some of Melbourne’s most popular cafes and restaurants to come up with a customized menu for the pop up restaurant sounded just too good to be true. And so, as part of my pre-end of exams celebrations for semester 1 we went to check it out.Read More
With all the changes that has been happening at Chadstone, you may find yourself accidentally walking into realistically printed cut off walls (like I did). After a long hour of shopping you may find yourself quite famished and looking for a good feed that doesn’t lead you to the food court. Not that food court is bad. It’s just that sometimes you may want something different. Sometimes you just want a nice bowl of ramen without having to travel all the way to the city.
Just a throw stone’s away from the train station, this cafe is a hidden secret among the locals around Claremont Avenue. After a good half day of work on a Sunday morning, my colleague and I wanted to explore some of the cafes along the backstreets of Malvern. We decided to walk down the little avenue strip near the train station where there appeared to be a number of little shops lined on both sides until end of the block. And this my friends, is where we discovered Millstone Malvern.
There was a time when everyone has been telling me about this place and how great it is. And then not long after people were still telling me about it and how much they wanted to come back again. And when I did finally come here for a friend’s baby shower dinner, it all began making sense.

I am almost embarrassed to admit how long due this post is, but it must be posted because I had a smashing good time tucking in at Little Tommy Tucker. I remember it well, because it was on one of those midmornings that was sunny but awfully windy and cold. After a good morning run, I was up for something hearty and filling and so came with a fully loaded appetite. My friend had told me that Little Tommy Tucker is the place to brunch in Bentleigh so that’s where we went.

A few weeks ago, I was invited by Yonathan to dine as a guest at their new Bagelicious store in Hawthorn. Bagelicious provides a bagel alternative to your otherwise ordinary sandwiches. The cafe offers a range of different bagels to base your sandwich in. You may choose from plain, seeded, onion, spinach and parmesan, cheese, wholemeal, rye, sour dough, chia bagels. There are even a couple of sweeter varieties if you have a bit of sweet tooth.
