Bababoi

Another restaurant on the Liven app for 10% discount (must use the Liven app to pay). Click here for details. At a not-so-obvious location, but easy to find on google maps… I’d describe it being near south wharf DFO as opposed to Docklands. Walk in immediately drawn to their washed out white brick walls chalked…

Cote Terra – Oakleigh

Situated within walking distance from Oakleigh Train station. At the corner of Station St lies a small entrance to Cote Terra. It gives a very cosy vibe and still very busy around 1.30pm-2pm on a Sunday – almost full house! My friend recommended me to try Cote Terra, but because I don’t always visit around…

+39 Pizzeria – Lil Bourke St

A good place for a casual night out. Suitable for small and large groups. I’ve been here a couple of times to say that their quality of pizza is superb. Pasta can be hit and miss depending on what you order. On my most recent visit we had a group of 10, we had to…

Shanklin Cafe

Not in a very popular area, but the locals certainly knows where to go! Shanklin Cafe is just off Tooronga Road not too far from the Tooronga shopping centre by car. Walked in to the cafe and was immediately lightened from the music and the staff. Two words to describe Shanklin, “Fun & Funk”… Walk…

Misschu

A couple outlets of Misschu one in CBD, another in South Melbourne. We visited the one at Cecil St, South Melbourne. There’s a big contrast in rating for the two outlets… I enjoyed the food. We arrived at 2.30-3pm, so the restaurant was pretty quiet with mainly 2-3 staff working. Misschu is casual dining with…

Makan

I was so excited to try when Tasia and Gracia opened up their restaurant – Makan on Collins St. In the heart of the busy CBD, they are situated inside the building. I go to code black for coffee all the time, and there is Makan hidden in the corner. I can see why it’s…

Gaja by Sashi at HWKR

The Masterchef winner of 2018, Sashi from Adelaide opened a pop up restaurant in HWKR, Melbourne. Whilst I was super excited to try Gaja, I knew that the place will be packed and underwhelming during their first few weeks of launch. Just because not everything would run smoothly at a new kitchen etc. I experienced…

Attica

Set in Ripponlea, ranked 32 of World’s 50 Best restaurants in 2017. Having born and bred in Melbourne, we had to try Attica! $275 per person for 17 courses (note price increases from October) but expect a unique 4-5 hours dining experience. Arrived at 6.30pm on a saturday night. It was a cold and wet…

Dead Man Espresso

While it’s easy to find, it was difficult to find a parking on a Sunday afternoon. Been here once few years back and revisited just recently, I think it has maintained its quality of service and food. Full house by 2PM. Luckily we arrived just before 2PM and didn’t need to wait. I ordered a…

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 […]
