The Home Chef

Lockdown special $$$$$ A few pics from my fav home chefs. (*Not actually a restaurant)

Milk the Cow (Carlton)

Fromagerie/Wine Bar $$ Fun place to go for a cheese and wine night. Recommend the cheese flight (cheese and wine pairing) or the baked brie. But anything with this much cheese is pretty good. Great place for a night out with friends, work drinks or a chill special occasion. 🧀🧀🧀🧀🧀🧀🧀🧀 8/10

Hector’s Deli (Richmond)

Sandwiches $$ I have a new love for deli sandwiches from lockdown; tasty yet portable! Down a quiet street in Richmond, this deli serves fantastic stuffed sandwiches with lines of people down the block. Buttered toasted bread with a generous amount of filling. Tuna melt a favourite, but the beef and pickles a close second.Continue reading “Hector’s Deli (Richmond)”

Mr Sister (Malvern)

Cafe $$ Cute brunch place in Malvern East with a lovely enclosed courtyard at the back. Nothing outstanding, but great for a basic brunch. 🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳 7/10

Chin Chin (CBD)

Asian $$ A quintessential Melbourne restaurant; i.e. hipster and fusion. Great quality modern Asian fusion. Mains were the highlight, super tasty, went basic with the butter chicken and pad seuw, both were delicious, butter chicken was super creamy, and beef very tender. 🥡🥡🥡🥡🥡🥡🥡🥡🥡 9/10 Home

Fuji Tei (St Kilda)

Japanese $$ Down a very unassuming street of St Kilda, this small restaurant is a hidden gem. Even upon entry we weren’t sure we were in the place; but what a find! For $35, got a filling and great quality meal of sashimi, tempura, tofu, pan-fried salmon, rice, salad, miso soup and black sesame ice-cream.Continue reading “Fuji Tei (St Kilda)”

Nene Chicken (Chadstone)

Fast Food $$ Had heard a lot about this Korean fried chicken, so tried it to see what all the fuss was about! Had the classic range with original and freaking hot flavours; definitely tasty and not nearly as oily as KFC. I enjoyed their cheesy mayo chips too; quite crunchy and salty. Fried chickenContinue reading “Nene Chicken (Chadstone)”

Supernormal (CBD)

Asian Fusion $$ A cute Asian fusion restaurant in the CBD. Opted for the banquet so we didn’t have to make any decisions! Highlights were the prawn and chicken dumplings, and the peanut butter parfait for dessert. Lowlights were the kingfish, and the lamb shoulder; it was very tough and chewy, and the kingfish wasContinue reading “Supernormal (CBD)”

Blue Bamboo (Braybrook)

Vietnamese $$ A true Asian mama’s favourite; when Vietnamese people like a Vietnamese restaurant you know it’s the real deal! With a huge menu and a cute bamboo garden out back, this is a nice place for families. Prices aren’t bad, and portions are decent. 🍜🍜🍜🍜🍜🍜🍜🍜 8/10

The Mess Hall (CBD)

Italian $$ On a street full of great Italian restaurants, it must be tough to stand out! But this quaint little restaurant has an authentic vibe, with great quality pasta. Duck ragu pappardelle was delicious with good bite! The seafood tagliatelle had a decent amount of prawns, but was a little salty. Gnocchi was anotherContinue reading “The Mess Hall (CBD)”
