Little Ramen Bar on Little Bourke in the CBD

It’s only been a little while since my visit to Fukuryu Ramen.  This time we lined up to snatch a table on a Friday night at Little Ramen Bar.  It took about 30-40 minutes but they are rather used to the queues, taking our order in the line.  The bar itself only has a few […]

Burma Lane on Little Collins – Burmese in the city CBD

 Burma Lane is the first Burmese restaurant I’ve tried – actually I only know of this one and another one in Springvale I’ve been meaning to visit! It’s a sister restaurant of the well established Red Spice Road and the menu and style of the place and food are rather similar.  The place itself has […]


Jim’s Greek Tavern in Collingwood Dinner with BYOB

 My friend raves about Jim’s Greek Tavern.  I think his happy memories are mostly because of the free BYOB and all the beers we had whilst tucking into the lovely, fresh Greek food.  Because of the free BYOB, be sure to be prepared and not be like us and walk aimlessly around for a bottleshop.  […]

Shakari vegetarian restaurant in Carlton

I really haven’t tried many vegetarian restaurants.  The one I have been to is Shakahari in Carlton.  They seem to be doing rather well given they also have one in South Melbourne and it isn’t surprising because they’ve managed to make vegetarian food rather interesting even for meat eaters like myself.  Their menu is extensive […]


Waverley RSL Warramunga Restaurant & Cafe in Glen Waverley

Ever been to a RSL for dinner?  Warramunga Restaurant in Glen Waverley isn’t half bad and even has a buy one get one free main offer with the entertainment book. If you’ve ever wondered about their name, it is named after HMAS Warramunga, a Tribal Class Destroyer which served in the South West Pacific in […]

Allium Food and Wine: dinner in Malvern

We tried Allium Food and Wine for my mother’s birthday.  They’ve always been on my wishlist because they’re in the entertainment book (formerly known as the Livingroom).  It’s a cosy restaurant with wooden chairs and the waiting staff were quite attentive.  I don’t think I had even mentioned the occasion but because there were presents, […]

Monash Curry n Tandoor – food delivery from Glen Waverley 2

Firstly, thanks to Menulog for inviting me to try out their food delivery system.  Indeed their website is easy to use.  Their website mostly shows restaurants within your suburb that deliver or offer pick up services – around mine there’s quite a large variety of Indian, Italian and a few Thai restaurants. This time we […]


Union Dining Dinner in Richmond 1

We chose to finally try out Union Dining for dinner after attending the Melbourne International Coffee Expo.  Our experience here really finished off the day quite well because of their special of suckling pork. We did order other things such as mussels (we go everywhere and can’t help ourselves really).  Whilst nice, it wasn’t as […]

Bistro Guillaume dinner at Crown in Southbank

I like this place.  Bistro Guillaume has left pleasant memories in my mind.  Even my brother who was rather sick with the flu remembers a good meal and not much of anything else that night. Their entrees were lovely.  Mussels in the most beautiful sauce – remember to save some bread (the bread was nominated […]
