Fat Bob’s Bar & Grill

Fat Bob’s Bar & Grill

Having heard of many good things about Fat Bobs from my own brother and some mates, it was time I paid the burgers and beer joint a visit. From the outside, the only thing indicating that such a place even exists is a fairly large sign pointing towards a garage door entrance decorated with a couple of neon lit signs. Hidden away between all the factories and sheds in the area, you’d be forgiven to easily overlook Fat Bobs if it weren’t for the line up of cars outside the entrance.

Ribs and Burgers

Looking for some man food and something that sort of resembles an all American style BBQ rib dinner with plenty of meat? Then look no further than Ribs & Burgers. Popular for their mouthwatering ribs, generous portions and more than satisfying burgers, Ribs & Burgers do well to ensure all customers are catered for with even a small selection of salads to have on the side if you wanted some vegetables for dinner. Due to its popularity, Ribs and Burgers have opened a new store up in Hawthorn but with the busy traffic during peak hour, my friend and I decided to pay the one in Northcote a visit instead.

Derby Thai

I have been studying at this campus for one and a half years now and I’m a bit sad to say that I haven’t given much of the local restaurants here a fair go. Derby Thai is a sound go to place for some tasty but not necessarily authentic Thai food that is convenient and affordable for university students and decent food for value hunters like myself. The food they provide is simple, (no fancy ingredients and strange fusion flavours here) and there are always lunch specials available for you to choose from.

Otaku USA June 2014

Although the August bi-monthly edition is already out, I thought it’d be still worthwhile to upload this issue. I’m in the process of culling, organizing and scanning all my magazines (Anime or not) to reduce clutter around the house. This bi-month’s issue of Otaku USA features: Hunter x Hunter an anime (or manga that I’ve long since seen updated at all), Kill La Kill, The Book of Bantorra, Wake Up, Girls! and From The New World. Don’t forget to support the magazine and subscribe to Otaku USA.

Le Petit Gateau

Le Petit Gateau

I have been on a long quest since before my foodie blogging journey to visit all of Melbourne’s most popular little cake shops. Today this journey took me to Le Petit Gateau a contemporary little French cake shop located just along Little Collins St in Melbourne. The store presents itself very cleanly with a minimalist glass cake display as part of their front shop design with no extra frills and excessive decoration. Le Petit Gateau offers its customers a limited but sufficient array of cakes to choose from and a small selection of pastries to have with some coffee or hot chocolate.

BrimCC Organic Soup

BrimCC Organic Soup

BrimCC Organic Soup is just brimming with customers (pun intended) during peak lunch hour and for good reason too. This take away style little eatery is small, seats are limited and yet a line extends from the counter to the the door of people trying to get their BrimmCC fix. Food is cheap, balanced, convenient and most importantly damn tasty. The food looks appetizing without trying too hard to be artsy, but once you get a taste of it in your mouth everything begins to make sense. And you’ll wonder to yourself, so this is why people keep coming back.
