HOT: Sweets, Immigration Museum, 400 Flinders St, Melbourne + Giveaway!

As an immigrant, Melbourne’s Immigration Museum holds a special place in my heart. Housed in the beautiful Old Customs House by the river, the museum presents the stories of people from all over the world, people just like me, who have made their home in Australia and Victoria. It’s important to me to support and promote a dedicated […]

HOT: Red Door Corner Store, 70 Mitchell St, Northcote

While the demise of the neighbourhood milk bar is a sad testament of our time of mega-malls and supermarket duopolies, the silver lining is that Melburnians have managed to transform the humble corner store into some fantastic cafes, including Mitte, Squirrel Cafe and my latest find, Red Door Corner Store. The owner/chef has retained some […]

HOT: Brunswick Flour Mill, 337-341 Sydney Rd, Brunswick

Brunswick Flour Mill is a casual, pretension-free cafe in the heart of Sydney Road.

The all day breakfast/lunch sit down menu is not particularly fancy and frankly a bit dated […]

I think that’s an entirely doable goal – so far I’ve hit Stranger’s Corridor, The Langham Melbourne, The Westin and now The Sofitel. Sadly, the weekday high tea at Sofi’s, the lobby lounge of The […]

HOT: Friday BBQ, Section 8, 27-29 Tattersalls 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: Hako, 310 Flinders Ln, Melbourne

Hako is a refined yet relaxed Japanese restaurant located in the office precinct of Flinders Lane. In the narrow half-block between Elizabeth and Queen Streets there are a lot of lunch options and my stomach firmly supports a trip to Hako. The interior design is Zen spare – nothing adorns the expanse of off-white walls […]
