Japanese $$ Down a very unassuming street of St Kilda, this small restaurant is a hidden gem. Even upon entry we weren’t sure we were in the place; but what a find! For $35, got a filling and great quality meal of sashimi, tempura, tofu, pan-fried salmon, rice, salad, miso soup and black sesame ice-cream.Continue reading “Fuji Tei (St Kilda)”
Fast Food $$ 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)”
Asian Fusion $$ A cute Asian fusion restaurant in the CBD. Opted for the banquet so we didn’t have to make any decisions! Highlights were the prawn and chicken dumplings, and the peanut butter parfait for dessert. Lowlights were the kingfish, and the lamb shoulder; it was very tough and chewy, and the kingfish wasContinue reading “Supernormal (CBD)”
Vietnamese $$ 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. http://bluebamboo.net.au/ 🍜🍜🍜🍜🍜🍜🍜🍜 8/10
Italian $$ On a street full of great Italian restaurants, it must be tough to stand out! But this quaint little restaurant has an authentic vibe, with great quality pasta. Duck ragu pappardelle was delicious with good bite! The seafood tagliatelle had a decent amount of prawns, but was a little salty. Gnocchi was anotherContinue reading “The Mess Hall (CBD)”
Modern Australian $$ Comfy wine bar with a casual vibe. Highlights were the gnocchi (so so pillowy), John Dory fish and the chips, super crunchy! The bread was a little tough, and the steak tartare could be more flavourful, but mains were a real winner. PUNCH LANE 🍝🍝🍝🍝🍝🍝🍝🍝🍝 9/10
Wine Cellar $$ Stumbled across this place after the nearby bar was full, what a great find! Simple but classy menu of cheese and wine. Great for a post dinner snack and drink, and without the noisiness of a bar! Fairly new place according to the waiter; the idea was to have a restaurant withContinue reading “Handpicked Wine (CBD)”
Chinese $ Was craving a good bowl of noodle soup, so came here! House-made noodles, warm beefy broth, definitely hit the spot. I had the signature handmade beef noodle soup (minus coriander so looks a bit bare!) and the spicy and numb beef noodle soup. The signature was okay, personally I feel like it’s tooContinue reading “Master Lanzhou Noodle Bar (Chadstone)”
Taiwanese $$ One of my favourite places for xiao long bao (pork dumplings). Super juicy with a light dumpling skin, mmm. They even have instructions on how to eat it printed on the chopstick packets! Food comes very fast and you order everything (with pictures to guide you) on an ipad. My other favourite hereContinue reading “Din Tai Fung (CBD)”
Cafe $ On the corner of Grattan and Swanston St of Melbourne Uni, definitely a meeting place for students. Had one of their chicken schnitzel wraps; veges tasted like packet veges, but the chicken was okay! For a cheap, fast, student meal, not bad at all. 🌯🌯🌯🌯🌯🌯 6/10 https://www.facebook.com/brewsisters/
