I was a fan of The Sharing House in South Wharf and so was a bit sad when they transformed earlier this year into BangPop. With the restaurant revamp the food changed to Thai street food, though the decor remained pretty much the same (ie the Lego bar stayed). I had lunch there the other [...]

The Sharing House: set lunch (closed)

For my work Xmas lunch in December, just like the previous year, I became the Lunch Organising Committee. This had both pros and cons. The bad part of having ultimate responsibility is having to think of a place that’s suitable budget-wise and also in the right location (away from work but not *too* far). If [...]

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 [...]

Akachochin: set lunch

Ever since our first visit to Akachochin in South Wharf, I’ve been dying to go back. The only thing that prevented a second visit was my rather sad attempts at austerity (which hasn’t been going so well but let’s not dwell on it). But the perfect opportunity came up for a revisit the other weekend [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

South Wharf: Boatbuilders Yard, Akachochin, Bohemian, The Sharing House

Disclosure: Alastair and I dined courtesy of the venues. Last week Hazzie and I were invited to check out a few venues in the fairly new South Wharf Promenade, located on the southern banks of the Yarra River. Last time I was down in South Wharf, it was the middle of winter last year, and [...]

Nuevo 37: a truffle dinner

Disclosure: I dined courtesy of Nuevo 37 / Hilton Melbourne. Last week, on a day when an eerie fog crept over Melbourne in the late afternoon, I was down at South Wharf looking for Nuevo 37. You may be wondering where on earth South Wharf is – and honestly, if I hadn’t whipped out maps [...]
