Matcha Fail

MATCHA MYLKBAR, ST KILDA - Definition of instagram food: all aesthetics, no substance. I actually don't understand why this place has so much hype, apart from their green buns which kind of just seem like green food colouring in a normal hamburger bun. Everything here is overpriced, bland and the flavours simply don't work well … Continue reading Matcha Fail

Brekky Buffet Belly

NO 35: Perched at the top of the Sofitel on Collins street, No. 35 offers a buffet or continental breakfast option, as well as seasonal lunch and dinner menus. We arrived here bright and early at 7am, ready to eat our way through all the brekky pastries, smoothies and omelettes, just to name a few. The ambiance … Continue reading Brekky Buffet Belly

Rustica Canteen

RUSTICA CANTEEN, MELBOURNE CBD: Down a windy alleyway away from the bustling streets of La Trobe and Melbourne Central, Rustica Canteen is a rather-undiscovered little gem compared to the hyped up other inner city cafes. If you couldn't already tell by the title, this is definitely one of my favourite brunch places so far, with … Continue reading Rustica Canteen

One Soggy Strawberry

AUCTION ROOMS: A 15 minute walk from uni - perfect for a midday brunch or before class kind of thing! (especially to avoid weekend peak hour lines) We went there around 1:30pm on a sweltering, Melbourne, Wednesday and were surprised to find that the open dining area was really nice and cool instead, with high … Continue reading One Soggy Strawberry

Melting Macaroons

LA BELLE MIETTE: Melbourne is dotted with macaroon stores everywhere, and La Belle Miette is arguably one of the most popular, competing neck and neck with Ladurée (renowned macaroon patisserie from France). The one we went to is right next to La Petite Crêperie down the famous little stretch that is Hardware Lane. For a French … Continue reading Melting Macaroons

Crêpe Craze

ROULE GALETTE, MELBOURNE CBD: A little bit of a late post as we had this about a week ago. Roule Galette is a cute little crepe place just off Flinders Lane (close to Laneway Greens) as we decided to treat ourselves after our lil Laneway Cleanse! It's quite a small shop front, with about 2 to … Continue reading Crêpe Craze

Gelato Joy pt. 2

GELATO MESSINA, WINDSOR: Time for the second stop of our Gelato Joy-ful Journey to Gelato Messina in Windsor on Chapel Street. Maybe we went at an off-peak time, but Messina was quite quiet and we were the only customers. The set out is similar to a normal icecream store with the variety of flavours on display … Continue reading Gelato Joy pt. 2

Gelato Joy pt. 1

PIDAPIPO, CARLTON: Now apart from the fact that we both love food, what we love even more is probably ICECREAM!! (yes that is also considered food but no technicalities pls) Gelato is served at all corners and cones (geddit) in Melbourne and so of course we had to try a couple of the best. First stop: Pidapipo on … Continue reading Gelato Joy pt. 1

Gâteaux Gastronomy

  BIBELOT, SOUTH MELBOURNE: Situated in the leafy, suburban area of South Melbourne, and a short stroll from the hustling bustling activity of the South Melbourne Markets, Bibelot is a place of desert dreams. As you walk in, you are presented with a wall of chocolate treats and sweets, ranging from chocolate truffles, to nut covered … Continue reading Gâteaux Gastronomy

Como Catastrophe

STABLES OF COMO, SOUTH YARRA: Not even sure where to start. We decided to come after seeing beautiful pictures of its surrounds, a seemingly appetising menu, and recommendations from friends. Hidden down Como Avenue in South Yarra, this 19th century mansion was converted into a function space and restaurant, which is called The Stables. Needless … Continue reading Como Catastrophe
