HOT: Top 10 Best icecream and gelato in Melbourne

Melbourne, welcome to your heat wave. Cool down with my Top 10 best ice cream and gelato in Melbourne, a difficult (but delicious) list to compile. In no particular order: Gelato Messina , 237 Smith St, Fitzroy I used to live around the corner from Gelato Messina and god do I miss it. When it’s […]

HOT: 5 and Dime Bagel, 16 Katherine Place, Melbourne

5 and Dime Bagel’s New York style boiled bagels have been gaining a loyal following from farmer’s market shoppers for the past two years.  While you can still buy 5 and Dime Bagel at Flemington and Gasworks farmers markets, they have opened a permanent store in Katherine Place, near the King St end of Flinders […]

HOT: B’Stilla Cantina, 277B Brunswick Street, Fitzroy

What was a Fitzroy chocolate shop has now been turned into B’Stilla Cantina, an offshoot of South Yarra’s award-winning B’Stilla, and all I can say is GO GO GO! The crowds aren’t huge yet because people are still on holiday….but soon you won’t be able to perch on a stool, let alone grab one of only […]

HOT: Pidapipo, 299 Lygon Street, Carlton

Pipapipo is a new addition to the Lygon Street ice cream/gelato strip and in a prime position across the road from Cinema Nova. You can’t miss it because there is a big red neon sign proclaiming ‘gelateria’ in the window. According to this fascinating article, you can generally judge the quality of gelati from 15 […]

HOT: Ferdydurke, 31 Tattersalls Lane, Melbourne

I’ll let you in on a secret I discovered on a Foodi tour – you can get excellent $5 gourmet hotdogs at Ferdydurke! I don’t think even the fast food chains can beat that price, and the hotdogs at Ferdydurke are certainly a whole lot better.  Ferdydurke is a upstairs bar in Chinatown run by the same […]

HOT: South Melbourne Market tour, 322-326 Coventry St, South Melbourne

During Markets of Melbourne’s Market Week 2014 I took the opportunity to take a guided tour of South Melbourne Market. South Melbourne Market is not a market I frequent often so the tour was a fun and delicious way to discover interesting gems and meet some of the stallholders and characters behind the long-standing market. Here are […]

HOT: Agathe Patisserie, Rear 97 Chapel St, Windsor (Entry via Artists Lane ) and Prahran Market, 163 Commercial Rd, South Yarra

You know the reason why I could never be (willingly) gluten-free or sugar-free? Because I’m a pastry FIEND. And I love discovering French patisseries in Melbourne, with my newest find being Agathe Patisserie in Windsor. I have been stalking and drooling over Agathe Patisserie on Instagram for a while and finally had the opportunity to […]

HOT: Xuan Banh Cuon, 232 Hampshire Rd, Sunshine

Eating out in multicultural Sunshine can be a little overwhelming if you don’t have a recommendation. Luckily for me, the path to Xuan Banh Cuon has been trodden by some of my favourite food bloggers – Footscray Food Blog, Consider the Sauce and Melbourne Gastronome. Add my voice to their chorus because the banh cuon […]

HOT: Bo De Trai, 94 Hopkins St, Footscray

I’m not vegetarian but I can appreciate a good vegetarian restaurant when I encounter one! And Bo De Trai, a cheap and cheerful vegetarian Vietnamese/Chinese restaurant in Footscray, is awesome. In fact, I think some of their dishes are better than their original meaty versions. Bo De Trai is a restaurant which is linked to the […]

HOT: Hot Chocolate Festival, Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery, 35 Old Healesville Rd, Yarra Glen

This recent icy cold weather is the perfect excuse to indulge in cups of hot chocolate! Throughout August the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery is hosting a Hot Chocolate Festival with 31 limited edition flavours of hot chocolates being served. Every week there will be 8 flavours on rotation and I was invited to try their week 1 […]
