Lune Croissanterie – Collins St

Did you know Croissants are made in a diamond pastry shape? I didn’t know until now… Lune Croissante is based in Fitzroy, but they opened up a Collins St x Russell St shopfront. It’s really at Russell St, but the building is on Collins St – a little bit confusing for first timers. When I…

Hatter and the Hare

A place with a variety of sweets, a place of featured Alice in Wonderland experience. I don’t have such a sweet tooth, but the hype has attracted me to trying the cafe between my visits to the Eastern Suburbs… I’ve been here three times now: twice for drinks and once for lunch. I must say […]

White Mojo Plus – Glen Waverley

A cafe infused with Asian flavours – great place to be located. Different menu for brunch and dinner. So one visit is not enough! I’ve always hung around at Glen Waverley before I moved, it was the hang out place amongst friends catch up. White mojo plus opened not long ago and we’ve now tried…

KOI Dessert Bar

From the appearance in Masterchef to setting up a pop-up restaurant at HWKR in Melbourne, eludes me to try KOI Dessert Bar in Chippendale Sydney… Never been to Kensington Street before, but KOI is right at the asian hub where spice alley is and many other restaurants hang out. KOI sets up their take away…

The Meat & Wine Co – Southbank

The Meat & Wine Co has been at Southbank for many years. My first time was at a 21st birthday seated upstairs. And on the recent visit, I sat on the ground floor for a girls night table for four. I felt that the ground floor was very cosy – the tables were close to…

The Crux & Co

The Crux & Co just lies opposite The Kettle Black. They present balanced dishes inspired by Korean savoury flavours. Mocha was towards above average. I like my mocha not overly sweet but still able to taste the coffee aroma. They met it. J again is on a health street, so he ordered the green cold…

2AM Dessert Bar – Janice Wong’s Restaurant

It was a must try when in Singapore, and we managed to try it in our first visit to Singapore. I booked in advance as I had no idea how popular it would be. It turned out that I didn’t need to during the time i visited (a weekday after Christmas). [At least for the…

HWKR Food Centre

Four pop up restaurants at Eq Tower until April. Interchanging vendors, app-powered ordering. HWKR is a hawker food centre inspired by the food culture in Singapore and Malaysia with a bit of a modern twist. Grab a table, order from from the counter (card only), grab your tissue and cutlery and be served by the waiters and…

Bibelot

Bibelot pronounced ‘Bib-loh’, is an european-inspired dessert boutique in South Melbourne. I believe they use to sell their desserts via Chez Dre when I first went to Chez Dre late 2014. And now… It seems to have opened it’s own boutique just in front of Chez Dre. This place is great for high tea and…

LuxBite

Having previously worked in many of Melbourne’s best restaurants, Bernard Chu and Yen Yee finally established LuxBite on the upper end of Toorak Road, South Yarra in 2010. It took me ages to finally step into the upper east side to indulge ourselves with beautiful sweetness on a fine Spring day.. I first tried the Blue Calpis…

Burch & Purchese

Is a known patisserie headed by Darren Purchese. He’s known for his flavour balance and texture creativity. Combining delicious sweet decorations of jellies, sponges, mousses, cream, crumbles & spreads layer after layer. I’ve followed them at the 2013 Melbourne Show – good food and wine pavilions. Darren there did a cooking demonstration on his explosive…
