HOT: The Age Good Food Guide 2011 Winners!

When I first moved to Melbourne, the first couple of books I bought for my new life were:

1. The Age Good Food Guide;

2. The Age Cheap Eats; and

3. A Melways.

In a way, you could say that my priorities haven’t changed much since then – the hunt for good food is a never-ending adventure for me.

  1. When it comes to food stuff. People are good on appreciating it. We are more likely appreciate the foods how to does it taste good or bad in our senses. I will love preparing food at home either for lunch or a dinner time. Thanks for this post! I love it.

  2. Wow, I didnt know that the Izakaya Den was awarded as Best New Restaurant! But I can only agree with that election, I absolutely LOVED it from my first meal there, food and service are just awesome!
