HOT: Esposito, 162 Elgin St, Carlton

In a recent article in the New York Times, a journo went in search of a fun Melbourne weekend for $100. The author noted that while I am privileged to live the most livable city in the world, Melbourne is also one of the world’s most expensive cities  (Japan, Switzerland, then Australia rank highly. Gulp.). Which is […]

HOT: Simon’s Peiking Duck, 197b Middleborough Rd, Box Hill South

Simon’s Peiking Duck is one of those suburban food destinations that draws inner-city types out of their cobblestone alleyways and power-steering down the freeway. Many of them have followed Simon Lay from his kitchen at Old Kingdom in Collingwood out to the lower reaches of Box Hill, all in the hope of finding the most perfect […]

It’s my not-so-secret mission to taste test every high tea available in metropolitan Melbourne within the time of this blog. I think that’s an entirely doable goal – so far I’ve hit Stranger’s Corridor, The Langham Melbourne, The Westin and now The Sofitel. Sadly, the weekday high tea at Sofi’s, the lobby lounge of The […]

HOT: Hako, 310 Flinders Ln, Melbourne

Hako is a refined yet relaxed Japanese restaurant located in the office precinct of Flinders Lane. In the narrow half-block between Elizabeth and Queen Streets there are a lot of lunch options and my stomach firmly supports a trip to Hako. The interior design is Zen spare – nothing adorns the expanse of off-white walls […]
