NOT: Noodle Kingdom, 175 Russell St, Melbourne

Did I miss a trick with Noodle Kingdom? I had read a heap of favourable reviews about this no-nonsense handmade noodle joint, including raves from The Age, Herald Sun, Eat Drink Stagger and Eat My Radish (some of them albeit about the Preston branch) and in need of a quick dinner one night I decided […]

HOT: Macaron Tasting, Famish’d, 130 Little Collins St, Melbourne

In case you’ve been hiding under an epicurean rock, macarons are the next big (if not already the big) thing in the world of sweets and pastries. Look – even The Age declared it so. I LOVE macarons. In fact, one of my enduring memories of visiting Geneva was not the lake, the old town […]

HOT: Bottega, 74 Bourke St, Melbourne

HOT: Philip Escoffey, Six More Impossible Things to Do Before Dinner, Arts Centre, 100 St Kilda Rd, Melbourne

A firmly French affair, with tinkling jazz and French pop in the background and an affable French host manning the coffee machine, it’s a lovely place to […]

NOT: Kiwi Fish and Chips, Tribeca Apartments, 412- 442 Victoria Parade, East Melbourne

I’d heard much positive feedback about Kiwi Fush and Chups – mainly about the quality of their produce and the fact they fried in relatively healthy canola oil. I’m certainly willing to pay more for ‘posh’ fish and chips if it’s good. On a rainy Saturday, RM and I were in the mood for a […]
