Bohemian: Lagarde wine dinner

Last week Haz asked if I wanted to go to the Bohemian for their Lagarde wine dinner. $60 for four courses and matched wines. Austerity, what austerity? I was in. On our first visit to Bohemian last month, we sampled tapas and paella. This night, we were there for their special wine dinner in association [...]

The week in brief: 21 May – 27 May

This week: austerity? What austerity. There was dinner at the Bohemian, skewers, noodles, dumplings and FINALLY: Chin Chin.

MoVida: wine selectors dinner

Disclosure: I dined courtesy of Wine Selectors. Movida, Movida, Movida. Last week was my first visit to the original Movida. I’d only previously had a lovely lunch at Movida Next Door but never visited the original. The reason for my visit was due to Wine Selectors – along with Haz and Thanh, we were there [...]

Persimmon cake

Autumn means persimmons. My friend Maz has a persimmon tree in her backyard – one year she gave me 5kgs of persimmons. Holy crap. What can you do with so many persimmons? I’m the only person in the house who’ll eat them, and even then I prefer the non-astringent Fuyu type. This year she asked [...]

The week in brief: 14 May – 20 May

Happy Sunday! This week: my first visit to MoVida (I know, I know) and… not much else. Austerity measures! But there is also stuff on my cat. Hah.

Phat Brats

Disclosure: I dined courtesy of Phat Brats. First it was gourmet burgers, and now it’s time for the humble hot dog to take the leap into Gourmet Town. Step aside glammed up burgers – it’s time for posh dogs to shine. Phat Brats is one of the latest to get in on posh dogs. Located [...]

Meat Market

Another week, another visit to South Wharf. Now that I’ve been down to the revamped area several times, I really think that South Wharf has been done well, particularly compared to other dining precincts (I’m looking at you Docklands and Southbank). I like that there’s a range of different price points and all the restaurants [...]

The week in brief: 7 May – 13 May

Some weeks I feel like I do lots of eating. This is one of those weeks. But before we get into it, this week’s catspam is courtesy of our friend, Dany. She’s in NYC at the moment (woot woot) so we popped in to check on her cats. Say hello to Dougal!

Mr Hive Kitchen and Bar: dessert degustation

The evening didn’t start well. First I literally just missed the tram – I was five meters to the tram stop when I saw the tram slowly roll away. Wah wah guitar. I then became lost at Crown. I thought I knew where Mr Hive was located, but I was wrong – I had no [...]

Fifty-Six Threads Cafe

“Hey Azzie. I’m in your hood,” Haz messaged me one day. “We’re going to Fifty-six threads.” “Where? Are you buying sewing supplies?” was my response. She told me it was a social enterprise venture that had launched at the end of last year by AMES – an organisation that helps new and recently arrived migrants [...]
