HOT: Supernormal, 180 Flinders Lane, Melbourne

Flinders Lane has arguably Melbourne CBD’s hottest eat street right now and one of the newest residents is Andrew McConnell’s Supernormal. It’s hard to tell from the name but the restaurant specialises in Asian-inspired food. It’s mostly Japanese with a hint of Chinese and Korean, as you can tell by some of the signage and […]

HOT: Meatballs & Sons, 266 Brunswick St, Fitzroy

Who would have thought there would be such a thing as a Melbourne meatball ‘scene’? Well, the latest entrant on the meatball market is Meatballs & Sons in Fitzroy. I first dined at Meatball & Sons through an invitation but I liked it so much that I returned with my family a few weeks later […]

HOT: Ebi Fine Food, 18A Essex St, Footscray

Ebi Fine Food is a Japanese restaurant tucked away in a suburban street in Footscray near the West Footscray side. It’s not a main shopping strip and you may easily miss it except for the Japanese lanterns fluttering enticingly, framing the doorway. Inside you’ll find a tiny Japanese fish and chippery. Yes that’s right! You’ll […]

HOT: Luna1878 Night Market, Queen Victoria Market, cnr Elizabeth and Victoria Streets, Melbourne + Giveaway!

Queen Victoria Market’s annual winter night market is back! Luna1878 Night Market is a midweek celebration of winter that is happening every Wednesday night until 27 August. Before you groan about leaving your warm house to venture out on a freezing school night, just note two things: 1. The market is actually much warmer than […]

Southgate Moveable Feasts are a restaurant crawl through Southgate’s revamped restaurant precinct running until Monday 4 August for Sunday lunch and Monday dinners. Your host will take you on a journey through three Southgate restaurants for an entree, main course and dessert. It’s a great way to sample different restaurants in one go and you […]

HOT: Parisian Patisserie Boulangerie, 19 Keilor Rd, Essendon

Parisian Patisserie Boulangerie is a slice of French deliciousness wedged in an unlikely pocket of suburban Essendon. The cosy two room shop is simply decked out in French provincial white with a few French artworks and fresh flowers. Today you won’t be able to miss it because the flags are out for Bastille Day! And […]

HOT: Code Black Coffee, 15-17 Weston St, Brunswick

Code Black Coffee is a cafe and specialty coffee roaster in Brunswick. It is housed in one of the most darkly dramatic warehouse conversions I’ve seen, designed by local Brunswick architects ZWEI Interiors Architecture. As its name suggests the exterior is a brutal black and the interior is all masculine. Black walls, dark concrete floors, […]

HOT: New Shanghai, Shop 323, Level 3, Emporium, 287 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne

I am really, really fussy about dumplings. My (Asian) parents taught me to be so! The hunt for excellent dumplings is an ongoing quest and I am honestly surprised to report that the best dumpling experience I’ve had in a while was in a food court. New Shanghai is a Sydney-based restaurant chain which has […]

HOT: Guerilla Espresso, Shop 228, Footscray Market, Irving St, Footscray

Run, don’t walk. The truffle toastie is back at Guerilla Espresso! Guerilla Espresso opened just over a year ago on the edge of Footscray Market and it recently won ‘best small cafe’ in The Age Good Cafe Guide 2014 awards. The cafe, a former DVD stall, is definitely small, squashed amongst some trashy $2 stores. It seats only […]

HOT: Rice Paper Scissors, 19 Liverpool St, Melbourne

Rice Paper Scissors is a small South East Asian hawker-style eatery tucked away in Liverpool Street. I call it ‘Longrain-lite’, due in part to the postage stamp sized venue and its menu of Vietnamese and Thai street food. We visited Rice Paper Scissors early on a Saturday night, when it was rammed to the rafters and […]
