HOT: Jolly J’s Curry Shack, Port Phillip Arcade, Shop 8, 232 Flinders St, Melbourne

A friend (who had heard it from a Sri Lankan colleague) tipped me off that Jolly J’s served authentic Sri Lankan food. That’s not immediately obvious from the picture menu propped in front of the no-nonsense wash-and-wipe down restaurant – the board lists unheard of Sri Lankan delicacies such as Chicken Parma, Singapore noodles and […]

HOT: Jungle Juice, 20 Centre Place, Melbourne

When you type ‘friand’ into Microsoft Word, the spellcheck automatically turns it into ‘friend’. Rather appropriate really – friands and I are definitely friends. Recently my human friend B informed me that Jungle Juice made the best friands he’d ever had. I thought that this was definitely a claim worth confirming…. …and wowsers! My banana […]

HOT: Proud Mary, Cnr Stanley and Oxford Sts, Collingwood

Lena: Do you really not drink coffee????? Jetsetting Joyce: Um, that’s right. I’m not a true Melburnian. Can you and James please come to Proud Mary with me?

That really says something when you’re comparing it with Tony Award winning, Broadway and West End hits August: Osage County and God of Carnage. When the Rain Stops Falling […]

This Degraves Street café and mini-health food shop serves organic food to the lunch masses, with pies, rolls, sandwiches, bowl food and sweet things on offer. I had a […]

HOT: Point & Shoot Camera Basics, Centre for Adult Education, 21 Degraves St, Melbourne

My trash TV confession – sitting through 12 cycles of America’s Next Top Model. But now it appears that all those hours have been time well spent! I’ve absorbed quite a bit of knowledge on photography and light while watching ‘fierce’ Tyra Banks and a bevy of model wannabes. That’s not to say I didn’t […]
