HOT: Lamaro’s Bodega, 273-279 Cecil St, South Melbourne

For a decade Lamaro’s was a classy gastropub tucked away in a leafy residential street in South Melbourne. It’s recently been transformed into a Spanish and Latin American-inspired restaurant and bar and renamed ‘Lamaro’s Bodega’ and if you remember the Lamaro’s of old you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the change. I was invited to try […]

HOT: The Plough Inn, 2322 Beechworth-Wangaratta Rd, Tarrawingee

The Plough Inn in Tarrawingee (20 minutes out of Beechworth) debuted in the 2013 Age Good Food Guide with a 14/20 score and it’s the kind of place that you would happily drive especially to […]

HOT: Mad Cow Thursdays, Hotel Nest, 111 Victoria Ave, Albert Park

A steak for $1? Too good to be true, I hear you say. Well, on Thursdays at Hotel Nest they’ve termed it ‘Mad Cow Thursdays’ when premium John Dee sirloin steaks start from $1 for a 125g steak! The catch is that you’re likely to be spending more than $1 as the larger steaks cost […]
