Gami

Gami has made quite the name for itself by serving up some pretty good KFC. And no I’m not referring to the Kentucky lad with the mustache and glasses. I’m referring to Korean fried chicken. The basic concept of focusing on one main dish as their selling point has worked well in Gami’s favour, garnering them a feature in the The Age Epicure good food guide and leading them to open up three stores all just in the CBD and more recently their newest store in St Kilda on Acland St. It seems lately that more and more little Korean eateries are popping up all over Melbourne, serving up the masses your good old classic pub food, Korean style. And Gami is no exception to this.

Chez Dre

I for one, am one of many who cannot turn down a good brunch. Just say the word and I’ll bombard with you all the places I wish to visit. Chez Dre was one of these places. This infamous French patisserie and boulangerie cafe is extremely popular for its fine selection of cakes and pastries. Just around the corner from the South Melbourne market, Chez Dre is a great place for shoppers, tourists and brunch goers alike to relax, and grab a bite to eat and maybe some sweet pastries and desserts to take away

Hakata Gensuke

I was finally able to make my rounds to this famous little ramen join on Russel St. Restauranteur and Master Chef Kousuke Yoshimura from Japan is the man responsible for this popular little ramen establishment. When Hakate Gensuke first opened, the the lines were ridiculously long. Along with it’s ridiculous lines, came mixed reviews on the ramen served here. Some exclaimed that it was the most authentic ramen they’ve ever had and others would suggest to you that the ramen served at Hakata Gensuke was overrated. Everyone has a right to how they prefer their ramen taste like and at Hakata Gensuke, the chefs do take this into account as every one is given order slip to fully customize their ramen order.

Sezar

Once every while I get an urge to try something different. Last time this happened I convince my friend to try some Moroccan food with me. Tonight, we were to dine at an Armenian restaurant. It’s always interesting to try something new, so I was getting pretty excited at this point. From the people that brought us The Black Toro in Glen Waverly, comes Sezar, a suave cool restaurant in one of the endless alleyways in Melbourne to serve up some middle eastern food.

To Read 1000 books

To Read 1000 books

In 2014 I got an the idea to read 52 books in 52 weeks from a post on Life Hack describing 7 52 week challenges for a productive year. And in that fateful year, I managed to read only 18 books. Reading 52 books in 52 weeks appeared to be quite a popular challenge. It seemed impossible enough to be challenging and yet achievable at the same time. I researched the topic thoroughly before I had decided to embark on this little adventure and had prepared myself by listing all the 52 books I would read and following the tips given on Life Hack on  how to actually read 52 books in 52 weeks.
