HOT: Anada, 197 Gertrude St, Fitzroy

If you have a Monday birthday there aren’t too many options for a birthday meal, so I was delighted when Tranzie suggested that they treat me to dinner at the Spanish restaurant Anada, one of those funky Gertrude Street places that I just never got around to trying before.

HOT: Alice in Wonderland, Cafe Vue, Little Collins St, Melbourne

As I mentioned before, my birthday treat from my parents was dinner and drinks at Cafe Vue.
