HOT: Shoya Japanese Restaurant, 25 Market Ln, Melbourne

Market Lane in the city is where you go to complete the Melbourne Asian foodie’s trinity – Flower Drum, Hutong Dumpling and Shoya. Shoya is a multi-storey venture into Japanese food.

HOT: Tempura Hajime, Park St, South Melbourne

Behind a non-descript door in Park Street, a little slice of Tokyo has dropped into South Melbourne. Tempura Hajime is a tiny restaurant which only serves, you guessed it, tempura.

I’ve absorbed quite a bit of knowledge on photography and light while watching ‘fierce’ Tyra Banks and a bevy of model wannabes. That’s not to say I didn’t […]

Ask the Doctor: Eating itinerary for HOT new restaurants

Help me Doctor!: I’m going to be in town for a week – could you recommend five restaurants for me to visit, one for each day, Monday to Friday?  I haven’t been back to Melbourne in a while so would like to try some new places. – Miranda Your prescription: So Miranda, you want to […]
