NOT: Crown Metropol, 8 Whiteman St, Southbank

Today we have a guest post from Foo of the Melbourne-based blog Frugal Foo, which is all about finding great value in food, travel, shopping or anything. Really quite invaluable information, and my favourite posts are Melbourne’s Food Court Underbelly and Where to eat in Melbourne for under $30 a day. Foo has written up […]

HOT: The Italian, Level 6, 101 Collins Street, Melbourne

Today we have a post from a new guest blogger, Huy – man about town, fine dining aficionado and on a mission to collect as many Michelin stars as possible. Take it away Huy! Entering the foyer of 101 Collins Street never fails to take my breath away. Nothing gets my heart racing like water […]

HOT: Coffee Hit, 81 Church Street, Hawthorn

One of the pieces of feedback I received from the MEL: HOT OR NOT Reader Survey 2010 was that you wanted to see more reviews from other people. I’m decisive, but I’m not necessary the Gospel According To Joyce. That’s why you’ll be seeing more guest posts soon, from previous guest-posters to newbies. Today we […]

HOT: Meddlers Hair Salon, 67 Toorak Rd, South Yarra

Today we have another guest post by Poppy, my blogging buddy who’s the author of Poppy Gets a Life (you can read her previous guest post here). We all know the best way to find a good hairdresser (or doctor or manicurist or barista) is to ask someone in the know for a recommendation. Here’s Poppy’s take […]

HOT: Sunburnt Country, Melbourne International Comedy Festival

I love having guests bloggers and today I’m handing over the hot seat to Gourmet Chick, a Melburnian currently living in London who still knows what’s hot and what’s not in Melbourne. The Melbourne International Comedy Festival starts soon on Wednesday 24 March until Sunday 18 April 2010, and if you’re a bit bamboozled by […]

NOT: Alice in Wonderland

Today our resident film guru Yalin brings us his view on Tim Burton‘s Alice in Wonderland. While I quite enjoyed the 3D effect and admired Alice’s beautiful dresses, I did feel that it lacked the magical wonderment of the original Lewis Carroll book, with its predictable good vs evil plot. Our guest blogger’s conclusion? ‘Burton […]

How to make lor mai gai – Gourmet Chick post

In the second of my three guest posts for my good friend Gourmet Chick (who’s away from her computer on holiday at the moment) today I’m going to direct you to my guest post with my recipe for lor mai gai or steamed glutinous rice in lotus leaves, a too-tired-to-cook freezer staple in our household.
