Mr Miyagi

Among the many amazing eateries on Chapel St, Mr Miyagi stands out as a modern Japanese fusion restaurant. The line snakes out the door, and the wait time close to 90 minutes, however it is a favourite I will keep coming back to. The setup consists of high bar stools and a smattering of tables, and … More Mr Miyagi

Oscar Cooper

Oscar Cooper is in prime position along busy Greville Street, nestled amongst art galleries, retro clothing and quirky stores. The line is a common sight, with people packed into the small space in front of the fireplace (where the jaffles of the day are written), but trust me, the wait is worth it. Wait staff … More Oscar Cooper


Set in a hip gutted out warehouse style concrete decorated building, Hobba evokes an image of pram-moms who come with their very young children and sit and catch up over coffee. It is, after all, highly spacious, and one of the few cafes in Melbourne which can afford to do so. The Pea and Halloumi … More Hobba

Charlie Dumpling

Charlie Dumpling lives in Prahran, near a lot of other asian fusion restaurants, but you will notice that on most nights, it is always packed.

Colonel Tan’s

Ah my beloved teenage years spouting angst and staring starry-eyed onto the mini-stage at Revolver. Those steep-ass steps which got you nice and sweaty before the main act is even near coming on. Hipster dancing to the Inches. Good times. I hadn’t stepped back into my past for a good eight years, until I was … More Colonel Tan’s

Guest post by That Girl. I’m calling it, jaffles are the new burger. … No? No one else? Okay, haha jokes! Jaffles are probably going to come and go and we’ll all realise we used to own a jaffle-maker and have the ability to make these toasted sandwiches at home. I might need to go … More Oscar Cooper


Huxtaburger joined with PayPal to create a magical feat that could inspire nations, heroes, princesses, dragons and Oberyn Martell to fight and fall for the quest of true taste – 50% off everything on the menu for two weeks. Booyah. It’s time to get sick of Huxtaburger (is that even possible? I’ll tell you in … More Huxtaburger

Parlour Diner

I decided to visit Parlour Diner in Windsor as part of my quest to verify and/or find the best burger in Melbourne. Beatbox is still at the top of my list, with Royce Hotel’s The Amberoom, Huxtaburger and Mr. Burger following. Collin’s Kitchen was also pretty good but they have since departed the list. When … More Parlour Diner
