HOT: Rose Street Artists Market, 60 Rose St, Fitzroy

The Rose Street Artists Market has been on my to-do list for at least five years, but for some reason I could never make it for the Saturday market. Fortunately, the market has now expanded to the whole weekend – perfect as I think Sundays are much more conducive to browsing and gushing. The market […]

HOT: Gluttony It’s a Sin, 278 Smith St, Collingwood

If gluttony is a sin then you definitely won’t find redemption at the cafe Gluttony It’s a Sin. As you expect with a name like that, all the food was giant-sized.

Several factors led me to Kim Chi Lunchbox: it was open, it wasn’t Indian (no shortage of burp-inducing Indian takeaway around Burwood Road and Glenferrie Road),  it […]

HOT: Taxi Dining Room, L1 Transport Hotel, Federation Square, Melbourne

Continuing my support for Put Victoria On Your Table, I booked a Winter Express lunch at usually super-expensive Taxi Dining Room for $35 a head (their 2 course lunch menu is normally $85). Be warned that the Winter Express menu = the no choice menu. Fortunately, both the main course and dessert sounded much more […]
