STREAT

Note: this is a scheduled post while I’m away. Replies to comments/emails will be even slower than usual. Streat is great. Here’s four reasons why: 1: Chipotle spiced beans with pork belly. For breakfast. 2: It’s a social enterprise and assists homeless youth with hospitality training. 3: They have a breakfast called Dogs breakfast that […]

Newmarket Hotel

Note: this is a scheduled post while I’m away. Replies to comments/emails will be even slower than usual. Alastair and I are currently romping around South America – if everything has gone to plan, today we will be on the final leg of the trek to Machu Picchu. Before we left, we had a celebratory-hooray-almost-on-holiday […]

The Strand

While I’m on holiday, I’m taking the opportunity to clear out the posts sitting in my draft folder. This is a scheduled post – I’ll be back soon. Sometimes I get a bit worried about restaurants with a good view. You know the kind I’m talking about: they boast gorgeous views, but serve mediocre food. […]

Ice cream sandwiches

Note: this is a scheduled post while I’m away. Replies to comments/emails will be even slower than usual. This is my life nowadays. I get up early to bake cookies. Ten years ago, I would’ve been awake at the same time because I hadn’t gone to sleep yet after a night out. Ahh, youth. As […]

Middle Park Hotel: Curly Flat wine dinner

Disclosure: Alastair and I attended in exchange for the photos from MPH’s last wine dinner. Also, this is a scheduled post. Replies to comments/emails will be even slower than usual. In mid-August, Middle Park Hotel held another wine dinner, pairing up with Curly Flat. Curly Flat winery is located in the Macedon Ranges, producing mostly […]

Kataifi prawns

Note: This is a scheduled post while I’m away, so replies to comments and emails will be slow. Enjoy! I have a terrible habit of buying ingredients just because I’ve never seen them for sale before. I have no idea what to do with them and no plans for using them. My mind just goes […]

The week in brief: 3 September – 9 September

This week: fairly quiet, because… today Alastair and I are off to South America. Cheers! Hoorah! Whoooooo! We’ll mostly be in Peru, but also will be spending about a week in Ecuador: Quito and the Galapagos Islands. We’ll be away for a month – I have posts scheduled to go up during that time so […]

Shed 5

Disclosure: Alastair and I dined courtesy of Shed 5. So. Fifty Shades of Grey. Unless you’ve just returned from a voyage from Mars (Curiosity!), you know what I’m talking about. To be honest – I haven’t read it. I don’t have anything against it, I just haven’t read it. So I don’t know whether it’s […]

Marmalade and Soul (Closed)

Just like I occasionally choose to read books based on the cover, sometimes I visit a restaurant or cafe just because I like the name. That’s how Alastair and I ended up breakfasting at Marmalade and Soul. I thought it had a cute name, and that was reason enough for me. Marmalade and Soul is […]

The week in brief: 27 August – 2 September

This week’s post is short and sweet. But there is taco time x 2. Wasn’t the sunshine this weekend fantastic? I made like a cat and plonked myself in the sun for a couple of hours today. Bliss.
