Golden Lily (Box Hill)

Yum cha $$ Good quality yum cha. A little bit hidden in Whitehorse towers, took me a little while to find! Highlights included the pork ribs, cheung fun (thick rice noodles), chicken feet (not a fan personally, but others said was great!), and bbq pork buns. Sadly they’ve stopped the traditional yum cha method of…

Calia Grill (Chadstone)

Japanese $$ Upstairs from Calia in Chadstone is it’s sister store Calia Grill. It’s still Japanese but more focused on the bbq aspects of the cuisine. We had one of the wagyu sets, tasty and fun to do! But expensive. Decent place for special occasions. 🥩🥩🥩🥩🥩🥩🥩🥩 8/10

Oushou (Camberwell)

Japanese $$ A nice Japanese spot in Camberwell. Tried the gyoza, salmon taco, teriyaki chicken, and one of their sushi platters. Decent quality, on the pricier side, but good value for money. Worth a try if you’re in the area. 🍣🍣🍣🍣🍣🍣🍣🍣 8/10

Rumour (Camberwell)

Brunch $fantastic service A little bit further away from Camberwell junction, this cafe is a little hidden away, but has fantastic service and good food. Fish tacos were crispy and well seasoned. ☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️ 8/10

Half Acre (South Melbourne)

Modern European $$ First time having a bottomless brunch! And this place delivered. Not a large selection but enough great dishes to make a hearty meal. Favourites included the bread and dips, smoked salmon and cauliflower. And you can make your own drinks as well. Beautiful venue as well, on a quiet street. Great value…

Ippudo (CBD)

Japanese $$ Ipuddo is a famous ramen franchise from Japan. The CBD restaurant has a beautifully decorated Japanese interior. Everytime I pass this place it has a long line. Very rich and wholesome ramen; I tried the original chashu, noodles had a good bite to it and a very comforting hot broth. Not too salty…

San Churro (CBD)

Dessert $ This place was insanely busy the day I went. Located in QV, it’s clearly a favourite to go to after dinner in the city. Pretty pricey for what you get, and the churros are a bit oily, but if you don’t put your expectations too high, it’s a decent place for a hot…

The Cookie Box

Dessert $ These cookies are pretty expensive at $5/$6 each, but if you’re craving a classic thick cookie with gooey chocolate and don’t feel like baking them yourself, this is the place to go. Comes in a cute bag with its name on it. My favourite is the classic, a standard choc chip cookie. Served…

Shake Shack (Singapore)

Fast Food $ This place has a bloody good burger. The standard Shackburger with the double patty and added bacon is absolutely delicious, meat has great flavour and is well balanced by the bread and lettuce. The chicken burger was also surprisingly tasty! Super tender and juicy. But I have to confess I think my…

Irvins (Singapore)

Snacks $ Saw this brand all over Singapore; I’ve tried their salted egg chips in the past, but had never tried their salted egg noodles. Surprisingly a bit bland, but overall not bad, still worth a try. But definitely prefer their chips. 🍜🍜🍜🍜🍜🍜🍜 7/10
