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…

Tipo 00

A pasta bar in a little lane of Melbourne CBD… we were lucky enough to get a table for 3 on a Thursday night. I’ve tried several times from walk-in or phone bookings, but they seem to be always booked out – or i’m such a last minute booker. Highly rated (been on good food…

St. ALi

St. ALi is a specialty coffee since 2005. It lives in South Melbourne in an alleyway of industrial setting. So don’t feel lost if you haven’t found St Ali, you’ve got the right place. After many years of St Ali, this brunch place is still packed with a waitlist upon arrival. For a table for…

Meat Maiden

A basement restaurant and bar located in the heart of Melbourne CBD. They catered for us with a group of 10! We ordered the maiden mood which is $65 per person, where the whole table must do the same. Accommodates for dietary requirements like many other feed me options. The deal is they give us…

Cafe Blush

A Calia project is just downstairs below Calia at Emporium. I thought their menu would also be japanese inspired. But it’s something different. What we enjoy, is the beetroot latte. It doesn’t sound appealing but they’ve done it to my liking! light beetroot aftertaste, but not losing the milkiness of lattes. I’m not a big…

Rockpool Bar & Grill

Over two months I’ve been at Rockpool twice (one for dinner and the second for lunch. The second time was better than the first. Why? Because I didn’t know my steak! I had the wagyu topside the first time and it was too chewy! I was so disappointed until I tried J’s scotch fillet around…

Giant Steps

I’ve heard all about it and drove past it many times when I head pass Healesville. When I did want to go there, they were closed for renovation. Now they have re-opened! Beautiful interiors with vertical wooden designs for dining separation. I’ve never been inside before it was renovated, so I had no idea how…

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…

Sitting close to the South Melbourne Market where a market with the freshest seafood lies Chez Dré, a french breakfast, lunch and patisserie restaurant catered for all. Chez Dré, a French-inspired sweet & savoury delights, treats.. you name it. The good thing is, they have all-day brunch menu! To top it up, they have a…
