Steer Bar and Grill Dinner at a new location and Moooving discount

You know you’re onto something when the place is full.  Steer Bar and Grill has always had the luxury of ample tables and I guess it’s not too surprising they are downsizing – they’re still in the same area but indeed it is a harder restaurant to spot.  No wonder they’re offering a wonderful deal […]

New Shanghai Chinese Restaurant and I love Pho in Emporium Food Court

Normally I don’t go to the city but around the Christmas period Emporium had a pretty good parking deal (free!) with the pre-booking service secure parking so that tempted me out to the city. New Shanghai First up was New Shanghai! We started eating at about 530pm but the venue was already starting to fill up […]


The Grand Hotel Dining Room Richmond – Pub Lunch

It is fusion Taiwanese food that’s served here.  And it might be a bit different to what you might […]

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, […]

Mazzitelli Italian Restaurant in Richmond – dinner

Only three months left to use the 2013/2014 entertainment book – powering on! Mazzitelli is in there and I found it so surprising I didn’t ear mark it earlier.  When going out with my friends it’s always difficult because I live a bit further away and finding a restaurant in the “middle” is difficult. I’m […]
