Rosetta

Rosetta, Southbank

December 30, 2014

Rosetta is the only Rockpool Group restaurant that we were yet to dine at – and that is only because it happens to be interstate. But for New Year’s Eve we decided to do things a little different and celebrate down in Melbourne. To make it more ‘fun’ we decided it would have to be […]

Chin Chin

Chin Chin, Melbourne

November 1, 2014

One of the very best things about Chin Chin has to be the variety of dishes. Their focus spans the cuisine of South-East Asia which is vast and contains some of the best flavours on earth. A lot of my favourite dishes come from this part of the world. Being our third or fourth visit […]

The Town Mouse

The Town Mouse, Carlton

October 31, 2014

There are all kinds of friends in life and when you are into food like we are some of the best are your dining buddies; you go to every new place with them, get terribly drunk at your regular haunts with them and suggest places you MUST eat at, around town and interstate, when not […]

Bowery to Williamsburg

Bowery to Williamsburg, Melbourne

October 31, 2014

On previous trips to Melbourne we had noticed the Bowery to Williamsburg sign a few times on our way to one place or another and finally our curiosity got the better of us. Being a Friday morning it was the CBD office workers that were the majority in the cafe but it was still quite […]

Hare & Grace

Hare and Grace, Melbourne (Closed)

October 30, 2014

When Dylan had to fly down to Melbourne for work there was one thing on my mind, a sneaky weekend feasting in one of our favourite cities. And so it came to be that I flew down to Melbourne on Thursday and headed straight for Hare & Grace. Hare & Grace was Raymond Capaldi’s restaurant […]

Chin Chin

Chin Chin, Melbourne

February 15, 2014

We had a few ideas of where to eat on our last day in Melbourne but after our night at Maha (which turned out to be quite a late one) we awoke closer to check out time than intended. We had to get ready, pack up, check out and reassess our plan. We wandered down […]

Maha

Maha, Melbourne

February 14, 2014

Maha is Shane Delia’s Middle Eastern fine dining restaurant in Melbourne. I initially came across Shane on Twitter and thought his style of cooking sounded rather interesting. When he appeared on Masterchef I became even more curious. Then SBS Feast magazine were giving away Shane’s Spice Journey DVD with every subscription – sold. Dylan loves […]

Roule Galette

Roule Galette, Melbourne

February 14, 2014

If you’ve ever had a crepe in Paris you’ll know they’re simply irresistible at any time of day. During our trip to Thailand last year I came across a lady with a crepe maker cart. She’d position her cart right outside our hotel and sit on her scooter all day, tempting guests on their return […]

Manchester Press

Manchester Press, Melbourne

February 14, 2014

Let me preface this blog post by saying I don’t really eat bagels. And more to the point, prior to our visit to Manchester Press I had only ever eaten one half of a bagel (albeit from the amazing Russ and Daughters in NYC). Now that’s out of the way I would like to say […]

Huxtaburger

Huxtaburger, Melbourne

February 13, 2014

A few months had passed since our first visit to Huxtaburger and I was keen to head back and see what I thought second time around. So after an afternoon drinking session which rolled on into the evening we headed out for a late night burger. Theo – double beef, cheese, bacon, tomato, lettuce, bbq […]

Gelato Messina

Gelato Messina, Fitzroy

February 13, 2014

If you don’t know Gelato Messina you must have been living under a rock for quite some time. First opening their doors in 2002 Messina has become the king of gelato in Sydney. Their queues… in the middle of winter… at 11pm… are famous. Their bespoke gelato cakes have become even more renown since appearing […]

Jimmy Grants

Jimmy Grants, Fitzroy

February 13, 2014

Keeping with our ethos for this Melbourne trip we walked the 2km from our hotel up to Fitzroy to check out George Calombaris and George Sykiotis’ souvlaki bar for a fitting lunch before an evening of drinking. Situated in a fairly nondescript building just off Smith Street in Fitzroy you could easily walk right by […]

Cumulus Inc.

Cumulus Inc., Melbourne

February 13, 2014

We arrived in Melbourne with a never ending list of cafes to check out for breakfast. But then we slept in and couldn’t really be bothered traipsing all over town to reach the places on said wish list. So we ended up at Cumulus Inc. around the corner from our hotel. Having eaten brekkie at […]

Cutler & Co.

Cutler & Co., Fitzroy

February 12, 2014

Choosing restaurants to dine at during a relatively short stay in Melbourne is never an easy feat. The list is long, the recommendations endless. But with each trip we make we manage to tick off a few more (and add a few others). Cutler & Co. is Andrew McConnell’s flagship restaurant located in an old […]
