Attica: Tuesday Night Chef’s Table

So Attica must be one of Melbourne’s most famous and awarded restaurants. And I finally made it there thanks to Kat, who booked us into dinner for their Tuesday night Chef’s Table. Run by Chef Ben Shewry, Attica has consistently been recognised as one of Melbourne’s – and Australia’s – top restaurants. Located on a [...]

Estelle Bar & Kitchen 2

When my FIL visited over Christmas, one of the few things he requested to do was a degustation. I mean – we could’ve taken him to see the Melbourne sights: the beautiful Yarra River as it glints brownly in the sun, the finger biting excitement of a hook turn in the city, the half finished [...]

Moon Under Water

Moon Under Water is the latest offering by Andrew McConnell, who seems to be gradually taking over Melbourne with his restaurant empire: Cumulus Inc, Cutler & Co, Golden Fields, and The Builders Arms. Part of The Builders Arms, Moon Under Water is the more formal dining room, and I’m not sure if this is part [...]

Hutong Dumpling Bar

People rave about the dumplings at Hutong since they opened a couple of years ago – particularly their xiao long bao. The place is so popular that you need to book if you want to eat there, and they have two sittings a night. For a dumpling restaurant. Insanity! Even crazier – it was my [...]

Mr Huang Jin

Remember when Melbourne was xiao long bao mad a couple of years ago? That’s one food trend I’m happy to consume. And when Sarah posted about Mr Huang Jin’s XLBs recently, I was keen to check them out after an average XLB experience the previous week. Mr Huang Jin are located in the Rialto tower [...]

Gami Chicken and Beer

A life without fried chicken is a life not worth living. It’s true. It’s a shame that fried chicken has been marred by the trashiness of KFC because when it’s done well, it’s a thing of delicious, delicious beauty. At Gami, which I *finally* visited the other week, they serve Korean fried chicken and beer. [...]

WTC Wharf Progressive Dinner + a competition

Sponsored by Nuffnang. Why take a regular taxi to dinner when you can go via water taxi? You can do that down at WTC Wharf, one of the latest precincts to pop up in Melbourne recently. WTC Wharf is accessible by Siddeley Street, and is located on the riverside of Melbourne’s World Trade Centre. A [...]

Fonda Mexican

Note: scheduled post. Still on holiday. Back soon though. Boo! I’ve heard that Fonda, a Mexican style cantina in Richmond, is always busy, with lines down the street. I don’t spend much time in Richmond, so I can’t confirm whether or not this is true, but with the popularity of Mexican food in Melbourne, I [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
