HOT: Funky Curry and Vindaloo Against Violence, 164 Bourke St, Melbourne

Today’s post is a bit of a mishmash – my views on a serious issue as well as a light-hearted food review. Firstly, you may or may not have been aware that last Wednesday 24 February was Vindaloo Against Violence day. Melbourne, Victoria and Australia has been subject to some shameful local and international press […]

HOT: Trippy Taco, 48 Smith St, Collingwood

You want HOT? You got HOT! At hippy Trippy Taco, you can get XXX HOT.

The restaurant was heaving during the lunchtime rush hour, and we had to wave […]

HOT: EC Pot Café Bar, QV, 200 Lonsdale St, Melbourne

Today we welcome a new guest blogger, a fashionista man-about-town who prefers to remain anonymous and will be using the rather salicious pen-name of LesKiss (for those who don’t know, Les Kiss was actually a NSW rugby league player in the 80s and 90s). Thanks LesKiss! If you’d like to become a guest-blogger too, just send […]
