HOT: Storm in a Teacup, 48 Smith St, Collingwood

I’m a Melburnian and I’m a non-coffee drinker. Gasp! My hot drink of choice is actually tea and finally, in amongst the million excellent coffee shops in my neighbourhood, Storm in a Teacup has arrived to cater to those who are discerning about their tea leaves (and maybe even convert some diehard hipster coffee drinkers). […]

HOT: Phat Brats, 320 Brunswick St, Fitzroy

I may be a food snob about some things. But when a gourmet hot dog joint opens around the corner, who am I to turn my nose up at a sausage in a bun? Phat Brats in one of the slew of ‘dude food’ places that have opened up in Melbourne recently and as its […]

HOT: La Belle Miette, 30 Hardware Lane, Melbourne

To celebrate summer (or whenever the warm weather decides to end for good) popular container bar Section 8 are hosting a Friday barbecue of footlong hotdogs. Section 8 is one of my go-to venues for out of town visitors – it’s pretty hidden away in a Chinatown vacant lot, grungy cool in the way Melbourne […]

HOT: Shanghai Street Dumpling, 342 Little Bourke St, Melbourne

A couple of years ago RM and I had a week’s holiday in Shanghai. We ate ourselves silly in all manner of restaurants, with a particularly memorable dumpling gorge at Crystal Jade which is still my gold standard for dumplings worldwide (well, limited to the dumpling places that I’ve tried around the world). Shanghai Street […]
