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

Burch and Purchese Sweet Studio

BURCH AND PURCHESE SWEET STUDIO, SOUTH YARRA: A famous sweet patisserie, I've had the fortune of walking past this place a couple of times but have always been overwhelmed by the choices to make up my mind and actually try it!

HASH SPECIALTY COFFEE, MELBOURNE CBD: Easy to miss with just a chic hashtag sign as the front logo, Hash is right opposite the famous Hardware Society which is always packed with huge lines going outside.

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.

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

Melbourne Michelin

CALIA: A Japanese restaurant with a deceptively non-Japanese name in Emporium. It has a simple, yet fresh menu designed by Micheline chef Francisco Javier Araya - so the most Michelin experience I've had so far, and without a hefty price tag. I loved the interior! It was very modern and chic, with a light wooden palette and a … Continue reading Melbourne Michelin
