The Westin: An Eclair Affair

Disclosure: I attended courtesy of The Westin & Q Strategies. I have been to rather a lot of afternoon teas in the past couple of years, so it’s always nice when I go to one that’s a little bit different. The Westin is serving An Eclair Affair in the Lobby Lounge every afternoon until 30 [...]

Bowery to Williamsburg

I keep wanting to call this cafe Bowery to Williamstown instead of Bowery to Willamsburg. The real name is a homage to New York’s Bowery subway station, but I personally feel that the owners missed an opportunity to work in a reference to Melbourne. I’m sure that Willamsburg, New York is 100000% cooler than Williamstown, [...]


Disclosure: I dined courtesy of Bomba. Lots of things in life seem to be cyclical. Food wise, one of the trends lately is for more informal, cheaper dining, with most of the new restaurants opening lately being of a more casual nature. I’ve personally succumbed to this trend – you may have noticed a lack [...]

Mr Nice Guy

Disclosure: I dined courtesy of Mr Nice Guy and Zilla & Brook. Mr Nice Guy could be run by two of the nicest people in hospitality. Owned by the same people behind Middle Fish – Pla Liamthong and David Holtum – Mr Nice Guy came from a desire to do a night time trade, something [...]

Queen Victoria Market: Foodies Dream Tour

I attended the QVM tour courtesy of Queen Vic Market and Little Big Marketing. I always like to get to a market whenever we go overseas (see here, here, here, here, and here) because I’m such a food nerd that it’s my idea of a good time. (Sorry Alastair!). Recently I did a tour of [...]

ShanDong MaMa

One Friday night, I tagged along with Haz to a fashion event. The sparkling wine was free flowing, there were people dressed in strange outfits, pretty people were having their photos taken, but guess what? There was no food. I don’t know why I was surprised – it was a fashion event. After the event, [...]

Gangnam Pocha

Gangnam Pocha opened a couple of months ago on Bourke Street (it’s the restaurant with the cartoon figure who may or may not be PSY) and the interior is a bit strange. I don’t recall what was on the site before, but – judging by the patterned carpet and internal doors with stained glass windows [...]


Recently Mr DH introduced us to ChangGo, a Korean BBQ restaurant on Little Lonsdale Street. Yes, I know. Surely I have eaten enough Korean BBQ to last me a lifetime? Does my blog need another post about a Korean BBQ restaurant? The answer to both of those questions is firmly: No, there is never enough [...]

Taxi: Ducks in a Row luncheon

Disclosure: I attended courtesy of Taxi and Little Big Marketing. As part of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival Roast series, Taxi are holding a “Ducks in a Row” luncheon each Sunday in June. In case you haven’t figured out from the name, the theme is ducky duck duck, with a 5 course set menu [...]

InterContinental The Rialto: High Coffee

Disclosure: I attended courtesy of InterContinental The Rialto and Run Forrest. I’m sure there are Melburnians out there who don’t like coffee. Not that I know of very many. They are a rare breed. So it’s a surprise that no one else has done this yet. Instead of having a normal afternoon/high tea – replace [...]
