QT Kitchen

QT KITCHEN, GLEN IRIS: I've never ventured this far down High Street before but was willing to do for some quality Vietnamese food. QT Kitchen was definitely a place full of surprises for us. Not only was the interior stunningly designed, with a modern refurbished bar area and a South-East Asian straw hut hub, the variety … Continue reading QT Kitchen

Muharam Cafe

MUHARAM CAFE, HAWTHORN: A small cafe featuring a white + timber aesthetic (my favourite) with hanging plants to give a real fresh and nature vibe. They've been quite famous for the donut freakshakes for a few years now but it seems that the trend has really died down - I was looking forward to trying their … Continue reading Muharam Cafe

One by One

  ONE BY ONE, KEILOR EAST: Definitely a trek out from the city especially when you don't have a car but One by One is a relatively new cafe out on the North-West side where good brunch places become quite scarce. Having come here as part of a food group collaboration, we were seated outside on … Continue reading One by One

Punjabi Curry Cafe

PUNJABI CURRY CAFE, COLLINGWOOD: It was my first time trying out Indian food in Melbourne (having previously only had it in the U.K.) and it was definitely a unique experience - taking my tastebuds on a tour of strong spices and aromas that cannot quite be recreated in another cuisine. We were offered the chance to … Continue reading Punjabi Curry Cafe

Yo-chi Frozen Yoghurt

YO-CHI FROZEN YOGHURT, CARLTON: It's been quite a few years since the froyo craze started in Australia so that froyo has really become somewhat of a long lost, high school teenage memory that I can reminisce once in a while. It's been years since I've had frozen yoghurt and I never realised Yochi had such a … Continue reading Yo-chi Frozen Yoghurt

Delhi Streets

DELHI STREETS, MELBOURNE CBD: Quiet a small, but popular Indian joint near Southern Cross with a few tables for larger groups, and a nice bar section surrounding the kitchen for small numbers to eat whilst watching the chefs make the fresh naan right in front of you. Their portion sizes are all quite large for a … Continue reading Delhi Streets

Two and a Half Beans

TWO AND A HALF BEANS, ESSENDON: A very relax-styled cafe on the busy Mount Alexander Road, Two and a Half Beans is a very welcoming, neighbourhood brunch area great for a quick catch up over coffee or drinks in the bustling surburbia. Peter was out front at the coffee machine to greet us, and he gave … Continue reading Two and a Half Beans
